Ye' Ol' K1000

i have a k1000 that has recently started giving me issues. this camera has had tens of thousands of exposures to its credit so it is reasonable that now something has broken.

All of a sudden after rewinding a roll of film the film advance lever has become stuck. the cylider inside to camera will spin but i cannot advance it with the lever. anyone who might have a suggestion or maybe has experienced the same problem that may be able to shed a little light on this problem would be a big help

It sounds like the rewind button is stuck in the up position. Try removing the bottom plate to see if there is an obsruction or just plain gunge stopping it moving back down
