pentax *ist dl

The mirror on my Pentax *ist dl will not return to its down position. It just sits half way up. The camera still takes photos and they cam be viewed, but they look poor, and I can only see through 1/2 of the view finder. Any thoughts? I can manually move the mirrow up and down but then it goes back to the middle. All of the other functions seem to be work.

I believe the recall spring of the mirror is broken or displaced.
with 50 € can be fixed through a camera lab.
