UC-1 / Espio Mini issue ! "E" error Please help

Hey!
This is my first Pentax point and shoot camera. I have a UC-1 I picked up that has started having an issue where the screen displays an "E". Looking through the manual it says the the film is not loaded correctly. I have made it through a few full rolls, but recently it has been having the issue where the "E" shows up mid roll and I can no longer shoot. I know how to manually rewind while in the camera but I am trying to figure out what may be causing this.

Any Ideas why the camera would think the film is incorrectly loaded partially through a roll?
Thanks

Could be a circuit board issue or the sliding door is loose. My UC-1 has a fine crack in the board that put power in the main circuit board, but double check that the battery contacts are clean or give them an extra puffing.
