Advance problem TL-QL : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

I just purchased a TL-QL from an estate sale. It looks like new. In checking the operation without film it worked fine-for a while. Then after advancing the shutter it won't fire. The advance won't move foward. It's just stuck. The shutter is closed. Taking the bottom cover off it appears the advance is in the relaxed position, that is looking at the bottom the plate attached to the gear on the far left is up against the stop. This is the gear on the shaft that connects to the advance lever. I'm not a camera tech so this is as far as I can go. I'm afraid that a shop repair will cost more than the camera cost me. Any suggestions please??? Bob Hazard
