lens stuck, beginner needs help.

heres the deal:
*istDL. ive had this for a while and love it, today i picked up an older K1000 film that had a variety of lenses come with it. the first lense i picked up was a Vivitar 70-210mm zoom. 1:4.5-5.6, 52mm diam.
i just wanted to check and see if this might work on the *istDL and although it went on smooth it doesnt lock into place. but the even worse part is that it won't lock into place and although it moves back and forth a bit it wont come out either!
the lens release button never engaged so it is still depressed but the lens wont come out.
im feeling a little ridiculous about this and would appreciate any help
