Hi everyone,

I recently picked up my Yashica after a brief hiatus of about a month, and to my dismay, the shutter button would stick down and I could no longer advance the winding lever. The last time I had used this camera was knee-deep in snow in Yosemite, and I did notice the shutter button to be a bit sticky then, but it was still functional at the time. I have recorded some footage of the internals and posted it as a youtube video. I will post the link here.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I want to further understand this camera, and even if I don't end up fixing it, I want to learn about repairs. Thank you.
