Nikon F-401 broken shutter?

I have a Nikon F-401 that doesn't work. I think the shutter is gone, even though the interior appears to be in good condition. The door lock also got broken. Is it worth having it repaired or are these too expensive for this camera?

Ari Nil   dear sir,
it's time to ditch the 401;I had it for a while in the late 80s and while it was adequate you quickly outgrow it.the only thing I actually liked about it was it's size. and it was too plasticky. now I (since 1989)use a 801 and I've never needed anything else.happy shooting.
