Weird sound from Pentax MZ-5N


I have a manual Pentax MZ-5N camera and i have encountered a problem..
The camera makes an extended weird sound when I take photos. I cant capture any photo..
In fact I had captured 5 Photos and while taking a sixth photo, the sound started.. At first the sound started as i gently presses the capture button, whatever i press, the sound starts..
I cant use it anymore..
I have try to take out the film and re put it in, i have take out the batteries and re put it in..

Can someone please help me how to fix this problem..

I guess the viewfinder is dark after this happened? It is usually the mirror is stuck, motor is tried to move it but couldn't. Quite often on this model.

hehe... I have tried to place the film in a way that the camera detects error..
And guess what, It became normal after re placing the film inside..

Thanks for your response
