[Rollei] Help! SL66 locked


somehow I managed to lock my SL66 again.... it was on a tripod, and
removing it from it's holder I think I pressed the trigger with no
magazine (?) and heard the mirror go up and the shutter release. I'm not
very sure about the whole thing, I just noticed it when I tried to put a
magazine back on...

It's status now:

- - Mirror in top position
- - Shutter courtains closed (I think I heard it go off, but I'm not sure)
- - Crank locked in forward position, it doesn't move even when the double
exposure lever is pressed
- - Magazine off

In the oval hole on the right side of the shutter window is a piece of
silver metal visible, it covers the first quadrant (from 12 o'clock to 3

Any ideas how to unlock the camera? Of course, I have a photo shot
today... I'll have to use my backup-SL66, I hope this one will hold up :-(
