HELP: Flash/Auto setting not working on Canon Rebel EOS 2000 35mm camera

I am abroad and I only brought this film camera (not smart, I recognize). BUT,I have used this canon film camera for 5 years and no issues, and now when I try to use the automatic setting the flash will not pop up or fire, and there is a whining noise when I press down on the button to take a photo. When I try to make the flash go off on a different setting the body of the camera will also make a whining noise. The camera is (I think) working otherwise , though I haven't developed any of the film I have taken on it for a while. Please let me know if there is something in the camera body I should check or if I should just admit defeat. Any tips would be great!
