Film Advance issues- ME Super

I have an ME Super and it has worked fine through 3 rolls of film. My wife picked it up at a yard sale for $10.00 with all manuals,cleaning equip, case,
strap, & 200mm zoom. Halfway through my fourth roll the film advance lever
stopped halfway through the advance. It WILL NOT move! What is the problem, and how can I fix it? I want to sell the whole set up on E-bay and
I know I'd get more if the body functioned. Any help would be much ap-

The first thing I would do is remove the film and see if this was the cause. Film will sometimes jam inside the canister. Additionaly, I have been guilty of thinking I had a 36 exp roll of film in my camera and found out the hard way it was not.
