If the RF roller is sticky, then the rest of the camera is probably in a 
condition. I'm going to take a wild guess here and say that the camera 
hasn't had
a tune up since it left the factory. That's a long time. Without proper 
lubrication you can wear out parts quickly, which will greatly increase your 
repair bill. I would get it cleaned by a pro.
