? Shutter Stuck

I am looking for a little advise!

Yesterday, while trying to set up a new Eye-Fi SD card I was required to take a test shot. The camera focused and appeared to take the shot as normal but then hung.

Now the shutter appears to be stuck down across the sensor (I am sure the sensor can normally be seen when the lens is removed?).

Nothing seems to reset this, the camera will power up but the screen shows back (all the expected icons etc are there), it tries to take a shot when the shutter button is pressed but after a few seconds the screen goes off and the camera powers down.

Does anyone know if there is a setting or trick to reset the camera, or force the shutter to move (? something like a cleaning mode).

Any suggestions wellcomed.
