    Check to see if you have a mirror lockup button. It appears that the mirror is in the lock up position. The mirror is usually locked up when using timed exposures where even the vibration caused by the mirror motion would cause the image to blur slightly.

    Recently acquired from ebay, Pentax ES II, cosmetically and optically like new EXCEPT that Viewfinder blind is locked shut, and nothing I do (shutter-speed dial, battery-test button, exposure-compensation-dial, hitting it, praying) has any effect. I COULD just gestimate the distance frame bygolly, and shoot, and with that lovely Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 1.8/55, it would probably come out with a good photograph, ... but with such a beautiful TTL, it seems a shame.
