Pentax Program Plus stuck rewind

Hi everyone,

I have a Pentax Program Plus, 35mm film camera. I recently found this camera and used it once, and now it won't let me load another roll of film in it. I rewound the first roll I used in it and ejected it, but now the rewind button seems to be stuck pressed in, the film advance lever is stuck and won't pull back in order to load the film. I'm not sure if putting some grease in it around the button will help since it's so old and barely used, or if my camera is just done. Any suggestions? Thanks!

The shutter is cocked. Put some batteries in it, turn it on and press the shutter release. The rewind button will reset when you operate the film advance lever. If it doesn't turn on after cleaning the terminals with fresh batteries then it needs servicing.

That did the trick! Thank you, I can't believe I didn't think of the batteries causing that. Thanks again!
