Seems that the camera needs an overhauling, it is possible that the shutter mechanism gets jammed at times and does not release by its own.Only if you are able to remove and check the mechanism carefully must you try and open the camera - if equipped- or otherwise this must be left to an expert so as not to tamper the unit.

Before using it I suggest you to keep it in a dehumidifier. Or a large airtight container with dehumidified silica gel. Keep it there for two or three days.

The shutter assembly has failed, a common fault with all older autofocus SLR's. it's nothing to do with the autofocus itself, just that AF SLR's usually tend to have fully electronically operated shutters which cannot be serviced and repaired like older models.
