My 645 clock stopped!

I was on vacation in the Southern Appalachians this past week and my 654 refused to load film after finishing a roll. I got new batteries and no improvement. So when I got home I decided to open it up. First on the non-grip side I could see a belt trying to work and some other gears and levers kind of half way working. Then I opened the grip side and noticed the DOF lever wasn't engaging anything or making its "zippy-zippy-grindy" sound. I kinda brushed a few things with my finger and "Ca-Cha!" It fired. I don't know what was wrong I'm just glad that I don't have a $100 doorstop with $1000 worth of glass to go with it. It would have been easy to replace being so cheap but not yet. The mirror was also stuck in the up position. Well see what happens after the next roll.
