35mm help.

Camera setup:
Canon Rebel EOS T2
Sigma 28-90mm 3.5-5.6
Sigma 70-300 4-5.6

I have tried 3 different set of fresh batts.
I have tried shooting with and without film.

But still, the shutter will not open. The mirror will flip open and close every exposure but the shutter stays still as if it was jammed.

I'm gonna run up to the shop today to have them check it out but wanted some ST input before I leave.

This is why I stick to digital

Yeah. I just bought it so I could get through with the Darkroom work in my Photo 2 class. I love the artistic part behind 35mm but just don't like it in general and not really fluent with troubleshooting the cameras.

Are you sure the shutter isn't opening and closing so fast that you can't see it? What happens if you manually set the shutter speed to 1 second and take a photo with the back open? You should be able to see the light through the lens.

Yeah the shutter isn't even moving. It looks as though it is jammed. Plus even having the back closed you could still tell with the sound of the camera.
And yeah I've looked at the back with different shutter speeds.

I'm gonna take it to a shop this weekend.
