Shutter not Cocking?

So my Bronica SQ A has been working totally fine until just yesterday.I was switching up lenses and now my shutter release won't cock. I crank it to frame 1 and the shutter release can be pushed in freely with my resistance... it doesn't fire the camera at all.I tried a different back, and even loading a new roll of film and nothing seems to help.If anyone has had this problem, please let me know how to fix it!
