    There is an old archived and unresolved thread about this issue. I know it's an older camera, but I'm sure there are people out there who'd like a possible solution.
    If it helps anyone else searching for an answer to this problem, I just purchased one of these for $10 Australian. When I got it home it was showing the flashing HELP message. When I put a film in it was rewound into the cassette. After mucking round with a few options, I tried loading another film and turning the camera on with the back open. The 7000si is now functioning perfectly!! When in doubt, try the least obvious route, it often works.
    Hope this helps someone.
