Locked up Pentax 67II

I have a recently acquired Pentax 67II with an issue. Initially the camera was locked up. The shutter would not fire and the film take up reel did not advance (though the advance lever does move freely). After some putzing around, it started to work. I was able to load film and advance to "1". Now, it's back to the same issue. It will not advance nor fire.

I have replaced the batteries. Any other thoughts as to what it could be ? The previous owner had run film through it just 2 weeks ago.

If it comes to repair, who works on these ? I've already contacted Eric Hendrickson and he no longer works on the 67II.

Thanks for your help.

Welcome to the forum!

- Are you using the AE metered prism with your 67ii?

- What is the shutter speed dial set to, or have you tried various settings and the same thing happens?

I've tried the metered prism and waist level with the same result. I just ran through all the shutter speeds with the same locked up result.

That seems to be the main issue with the P67ii body. Ricoh/Pentax Japan was servicing the 67ii, not sure if they still do.
