Hi there and welcome
Due to the age of the camera, then back is not available anymore. It was a very common problem for these cameras, and the best solution is to scrap off the sticky covering.
The best way to do this is take off the back door. That door comes off really easy, if you open the door and look at the inside of the hinge there is a silver thing that looks like a screw. With your finger nail pull that toward the bottom of the camera then gently rock the door and it should tilt away from the camera so that the top of the door is free. Then just lift the door up to free the bottom hinge pin.
Then use alcohol or acetone and bounty paper or similar and you will get it off.
This is the best way to treat this problem.
