Shutter problem, or...?

My ME Super produced several shots like this, with a black bar on the bottom, before locking up (advance lever stops halfway through its motion; shutter button does nothing; mirror locked up). Am I due a CLA, or something else?

Thanks for any advice given--I hope to become experienced enough to offer advice to someone else someday!

ME Super are susceptible to a sticky bumper problem as well as the usual gumming up over time.
