K200 flash stuck up

The flash on my K200 is up and won't latch down. Any ideas?

I wouldn't go with duct tape because it leaves a residue. Black plastic electrical tape works on mine which is taped down because i kept hitting it by accident.

I'd say to try to fix the hinge that holds it shut, maybe its just jammed? But electrical tape leaves a residue too. Painters masking tape does not
