F355 Convertible Top

My spiders top failed once I tried putting the top back up after a nice leisurely drive. I made sure I had the routine right, brakes on, seats extended and doors shut. Still the top will not come back up. I decided to raise the top manually. Upon opening the rear console box which houses the bypass switch and top fuse box, I noticed that one of the fuses had blown and the hydraulic fluid reservoir a bit low. I replaced the fuse and still had problems raising the top.

So I decided to manually raise the top by depressing the bypass switch and using the supplied lever with success.

I will try to schedule a trip to the service department to have it repaired, but before I do that, does anyone have any suggestions or experiences with the 355's convertible top failing.

Is the top moving at all when you press the "up" switch?
