Here's something relevant I found in MY archives -

"I took off the lens of my OM-2 and found the mirror was locked up. So I
moved the shutter speed dial to "B" to  reset the mirror. Nothing happened.
So I put the new batteries in the camera, and switched to "B." Nothing.
Mirror still locked up. Tried it with the switch in various positions.
Nothing. I kept trying for about a minute--maybe less. Then I switched to
"B" one last time, and "kerthwap!," the mirror came down, and the camera
worked perfectly. What could cause the mirror to stay up when I switched to
"B?" Isn?t this a mechanical reset that?s independent of batteries?"   Peter
A. Klein

"For various reasons, it is very common to get mirror lock even with good
batteries. A dirty trigger or magnet can cause this problem (amongst 5-6
other reasons)". John Hermanson

Hope it helps.
