KX shutter release won't work

I have a KX film camera body that worked fine until yesterday. The shutter release won't depress, but the self timer will actuate the shutter. Is there something I am missing, or do I need to take this beast apart and free it up?

Sounds like accidentally moved the shutter lock. Try turning the part around the release.

Same happens to my wife with her MX.
She's used to her trusty old K1000...
