Nikon camera D300 mirror up/down shutter permanently up

\015 I have a Nikon camera D300 the mirror up/down stays up and this makes it difficult to see thru the view finder for good shot to be taken. Once in a while after so many trial shots it may come down i have two other Nikon cameras with similar problem, i'm a technician i've opened it up already, What can i do to resolve this problem. Thanks\015

Answers :

Please\015\012 check whether the mode dial is on 'Mup' or 'Lv'. If it is, then the \015\012camera is on mirror lock-up position (Mup) or LiveView mode (Lv). Mup is mirror lock-up and Lv is LiveView. It could be in Lv mode if you can see the image on the LCD, but not through the viewfinder. If it is on Mup mode, both the viewfinder and the LCD will be blank. If any\015\012 of these is selected, pressing down the mode dial lock, rotate the dial to \015\012'S' mode.
