Question about Pentax K1000 35mm SLR Camera
The shutter is stuck...I can move the film as if I am going to take another picture, but when I look through all I see is black and the button you press to take the picture is stuck.
Your second curtain is not releasing the mirror to come down.
This happens with weak 2nd shutter curtain tension.
If the wind lever is stuck and the mirror does not come down then the mirror tension spring came off.
