Pentax Auto 110 stuck

hello there,

I just bought a Pentax Auto 110 second hand and when I tested it it was fine, but later at home it suddenly got stuck, when i pressed the shutter nothing happened and i couldn't advance anymore - the aperture stays closed all the time and mirror is in upwards position. I put batteries in but nothing happens It looks like this:

Is this a common problem? I was unable to find anyone who had his pentax do this.
I really hope someone can help me

I got a Pentax 110 recently and I have no idea if it's working, but I think it's not. The film advance lever is not going all the way...
I really want to shoot at least a film with this beast.

Does the mirror stay up when the batteries are removed? look at page 5 here about film advance issues. 110 Disassembly Guide
