I just put a new Film in and the red light keeps on blinking whenever i turn it on and whenever i want to take a picture as well. Once there were both lamps (green and red) blinking but still, no possibility to take any photos.

Can anyone help? Before you ask, yes i have put a new battery in as well (cost me 8 bucks and it turned out that wasnt even the issue) and i have opened up the camera to check if the film was properly placed in. That was also not an issue.

For a while it worked again but i see it is a reoccuring problem. Does anyone know what the issue may be?

You can get a manual here, The blinking red LED indicates that the flash is charging, the fact that it doesn't stop blinking suggests that the flash never charges and the flash circuitry is faulty. You should be able to turn off the flash and then hopefully the camera might work.
