In the series « press that shutter release it will become unstuck », have you 
tried using a remote control of sorts? Be it mechanical, electronic, via the 
iPhone, or the tethering on the Mac?
I DK this particular model, sorry.

From what I read, it looks like your shutter has closed to make ready to get 
the pix, and won’t open due to grit (gumming = mechanical), or rust somewhere 
(release button could be the culprit). Have you had a look at the blades? Open? 
Closed?

Sorry to read your trusted camera is playing tricks on you, and hoping this 
helps.

Amities
