Pentax auto 110 super slr - film advance lever is stuck need advice

I just received an old Pentax auto 110 super camera, replaced all batteries, loaded 110 film, then realized the advance lever is stuck. I placed the auto winder on the camera and it failed to wind the film also. The film is lomo new cartridge. I removed the bottom of the camera to see if anything looked suspicious then tried removing the top but can not figure out how to remove the advance lever to get the top off. Googled and searched you tube for the answer but didn't see anything that looked close. There doesn't appear to have any screws to loosen it so I can remove the top. Any ideas? Thank you so much for your help!

Will the wind lever work with no film in it? Will it move out to 90 degrees from the back. Is the shutter stuck partly open? Not much to go wrong mechanically. I have the non super 110. I am guessing the linkage to the cog which advances the film is in the base of the body.

Thank you for your reply! The lever does not work with film or without film. I will take a look at the manual and see if I can figure it out. It moves about 30 degrees and that is it.

any luck on this ?
i have a super too and has the same problem, the shutter doesn't take the shot!
i was suspecting it did need the film in to work, but it is not that, anyway seems to be a common issue with the the super version.
i manage to wind the roll until number 1, then nothing, it doesn't shoot....
i managed to shoot mine a couple of times... out of nothing ... just shoot after some seconds ... it might be something with the shutter, maybe the batteries? does it need expensive alcalines to work properly?
