SFX Problem, please help!

Hi, just got a SFX and she isn't helping me! Got the battery and the film and when I try to load it she doesn't advances to the first frame, also, the mirror is closed. Any hint?

If you can't even dry fire the camera and observe the camera fully cycling then it is possible the plastic geared motor had cracked. This is a familiar problem. Mirror stuck in up position is a known symptom.

Not for the unfamiliar in camera repair. I've started a repairs on a ZX50 with the motor issue and I can say that you can't do this quick because of all that flexible circuitry in the way... this project is postponed while I fix others.
