K5 Shutter-Button Selector jammed

Hello Folks

I do have a Problem. since this afternoon the selector around the shutter-button is badly jammed. I think i read about this problem in this forum some time ago and someone repaired it without sending it to a service partner.
Does anybody of you know what i can do to fix it ?

I think the sealing twisted and jammed the selector..... :S

You haven't been around any sand or dust lately have you?
If so, I would suggest a rinse (provided the lens mount is sealed).
If not, then I would let a pro crack it open.

no, not realy, there isnt any sign of dust or liquid penetration.
Interesting is,however there are small rubber parts ( like you used an eraser) which seems to leave the selector part.
