I am not at all familiar with this camera, so please excuse my ignorance. My Crown Graphic has a Syncro Compur shutter. The iris blades do not open, but the exposure mechanism seems fine. Whether I set at high, low or T, B speeds, the mechanism fires, but no opening of the iris. They just wiggle in hardly visible fashion.

Anything I can do?
Is this a big deal for professional repair?

Thanks for all advice.

Take/send it to a shutter repair shop and have a CLA done (clean lube adjust).
