MInolta x-300s film camera - shutter will not work

Hi, My camera has been in storage for a long while now and yes, I forgot to use the shutter during this time. Now, when I press the shutter, the light meter comes on, but the shutter will not release. I've tried putting a film in, but alas - no change. I waqs quoted £128 to have it fixed, so I refused and bought another on ebay for £20. This behaves in exactly the same way *groan*. Is there anything I can do to get my camera(s) working again, or should I just resign myself to a broken camera and an ebay refund?
