Hi,

According to this link it has a motordrive. So if the film is not advancing it may be that the motor is either not turning or that it is not being 'told' to turn.

It also has a 'film rewind' button so if the film rewinds OK (I'm thinking that it would use the same motor to wind forward and backward) then at least you know that the motor is working, at least in one direction only.

You will have to open the camera and see what the problem is. I cannot find any service manuals for it.
