Pro1 giving no live image when start up, please help.

Not sure many people still use it but, my Pro1, during a trip, suddenly has a problem that, when powered on, it gives not live image on the viewfinder (neither on the small EVF or the LCD). It looks to me like the lens is not open at all. When it just got such problem, i could shake it a bit then power up it will go normal. But now even shaking it won't do the trick. I think the lens refuse to open.

Anyone having similar problem with a Pro1? I know it's an outdated camera but it's still a very competent one for daylight travel shooting. I guess i could ask Canon service for help but being out of warranty it may not justify to have it repaired with high cost.
