I was taking pictures into bright sunlight switching between manual and automatic settings, and manual and automatic focus. First, the picutre would take, but the shutter would not open (viewfinder would remain closed) switching from manual to automatic focus fixed this issue. However now it seems that the aperture is stuck, and not enough light gets through to the viewfinder. How can I fix this?

My lens is stuck and it will not extend when I turn on the camera resulting in a lens error. It automatically shuts down. Before it came to this state it was fixated at an angle extended on one side and pushed back on the other. I push the other side down in an attempt to fix it, but I think I may have made it worse. Any help would be nice. Thank you.
