I retookit from storage and tried to see again. Back when it jammed heavily I took out the bottom plate to see, and there's a little lever that moves when cocking, pivoting when actioning the shutter but it does not return all the way to the initial position. The shutter button remains soft and I can see that the lever cannot be released as it does not catch.
I have seen though that running the selftimer does let me shoot and wind, but afterwards the button remains soft.
Was looking to send it out to one of the UK based repairers.
I bought it CLA'd in '08 but probably the Fall temperatures of Sweden and the craze of NYC didn't help it! After a couple weeks of sitting idle, suddenly jammed... Last actuation was with a cable release, which I don't know to what extent may have done something.
