645NII mirror "crush"


As i was finishing a 120 exposure film, my last "normal" shot was interrupted by the incomming lock-up of the mirror, stopping in the instant the body's power.

Having tried anything since, including changing batteries, i must admit that the mirror is yet non workable, and that my 645NII is - at best - going to be sent to Pentax repair service.

Have any of you encountered this problem before, and what were the outcomes ?

I am waiting for an answer from repair service re. feasibility of the repair...
