Is the shutter jamming or mirror locking up


How can you know the difference.Occasionally my viewfinder will go black,while it is black I can still press the shutter,it takes the photo and then it returns to normal operation.

I thought it was the shutter  on the way out again,but I'm not convinced.

Is there a way to tell which.

Many thanks.
