Turning Wheel stuck, sprocket screw gone

Hey, a little while ago the screw holding the sprocket fell out, so it is just sitting in there delicately held by the little bit that pops up into it- so it still turns fine(although I don't think the rewind realease button has any effect?). But when film is loaded the turning wheel will not turn and the shutter release does not react. Is this a direct result? And ither way does anybody have any ideas how to fix? I've only put about 4 of my own films through it an will greatly miss if not able to do any more. Thanks in advance,
