Why does the mirror lock up after shutter is fired?

The advance lever works, and the shutter button does too, but once I fire the shutter, the mirror stays up (it's like im doing a long exposure). So I remove the 6v battery and right away the mirror drops, but then I place the battery back in and it happens all over again.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?
