Nikon D1X mirror shutter problem


\015 I dropped the camera in a soft sided case. When I press the shutter release with the camera on, the mirror moves up and stays up. When I push the shutter release a second time the mirror moves down,then moves op, the shutter releases, and then the mirror moves down. If I press the shutter release a third time, the mirror moves up and stays up.if I press the shutter release a fourth time the cycle continues. No pictures are taken however.\015
