The SA 21 adaptor is completely locked inside my coolscan 5000, no matter what software, or if power is disconnected, it cannot be removed. Apparently, there is a lock release machanism on the LHS. I have removed the covers to find it, but no luck in discovering it. Any ideas please?

It locked up after using vuescan software to change the frame position, which sent the strip (of 4) negatives in deeper, but it then stoppped, and reports faults in the software.
