Question by I Love Funnyjunk.com: My school-assigned camera for photography won’t let me take pictures. Vivitar camera, NOT A DIGITAL CAMERA.?
The wind-up lever is not locked, and I am not out of film. I took two pictures so far on a roll that holds 25. I can not press the capture button down all the way and It is wound up again and ready to take, but It won’t. Any idea how to fix it ASAP?

Try the film advance again. Sometimes it takes two or three cocks to lock the shutter into place.
You might also have locked the shutter button. The button’s collar is usually the lock, just turn it clockwise if it’s there.
If you’re still stuck, try searching for the camera’s manual at butkus.org. You might find an answer there.
