shutter problems with my SWC with chromed Biogon (30 years old)

I have a problem with my SWC with chromed Biogon: The shutter in the lens works for 3 or 4 times properly but than he refuses any work. I tried it again next day. Same result: shutter works for 4 times and stopped working the rest of the day.

Has anyone an idea what it can be? Can it be that the mechanics in the lens have to be cleaned up due to long not-using?

That will be it, yes.

Lack of use makes the lubricants gum up and go hard.

It wil need a cleaning and relubricating.
