PMW 200 ND Filters Jammed

Does anyone know how to unjam the ND filter selector on a PMW200?

This seems to be stuck with the clear filter not correctly located, there's vignetting on the top RHS of the frame. The sliding selector is stuck at the bottom, in the clear filter position and doesn't move with normal operating force.

eeek. not good.

the most i would do before taking it to sony is try jiggling the camera while gently applying pressure to the filter switch back and forth, and see if that gets it back in line. i've never heard of this happening, and i'd definitely want sony's hands on it

Thanks, that's what I suspect is probably all that can be done.

This issue got sorted by turning the camera on its side, the new position must've released something in the mechanism.
