Check to make sure that it is wound all the way. Also, set the multiple exposure lever and try it again. It could be a problem with the shutter release, so try the left shutter release and see if it trips the shutter. I have the same camera and have shot it continuously since I bought it in 1986, but I have never seen this exact problem so I can only make guesses.
