Pentax MG shutter problem

Hi all,
I recently came across this little camera. Meter works and it looks very clean. Film advances but the shutter looks dead. I press the shutter button and nothing happens. I can advance the film as many times as I want without touching the shutter. I guess this behavior is not normal. Is there an easy fix for this?
Thanks in advance!
