Dropped my 6x7

My pentax 6x7 fell out of my backpack and onto the ground. It landed on the speed dial. Bending it some. Now whenever i fire the shutter it stays open and the mirror locks all the way up. When you take the battery out it drops back down. Any help would be much appreciated.

Sounds like your shutter speed dial is stuck/set between two speed settings.
Does the dial turn correctly, and click into each speed setting?

No it gets really stuff at some points and sort of clicks on the rest. I took off the electronic board and if I move it in weird positions it fires fine.
