Pentax 67 MLO mirror stuck

Hello,

I had to buy a "new" Pentax 67 a few months ago as mine was stolen in 2013.
Unfortunately the mirror got stuck midway.
Has anyone had this already and do you know an "easy" fix before I send it to a repair shop ?

Thanks in advance for your help

Denis

Try pressing the mirror release button on the front of the camera with a pointed object and while doing so, press the shutter button.

Thanks a lot it worked.

Now the mirror goes up again every time I rewind, I never had this problem with previous body that I used for 7 years.
I don't have a battery but didn't used one ever.

Any trick to stop this silly behaviour ?
Thanks
