Without looking at it, it's hard to tell. Might have jumped the little leaf spring that comes up under the roller assembly. When was the camera last overhauled? And by whom?
Depending, if it hasn't had an overhaul in more than four years, I would send it for a complete overhaul and that issue can be fixed at the same time. If it has just recently been overhauled, that issue can be fixed without taking the whole camera apart, if it has just jumped the leaf spring.

Thanks for the advice, though!

Axel Broda (who trained me), ARRI in New York, and I are the only ARRI service techs in the United States who set up the cameras that way and use all original factory lubricants. If you want to understand why that is important, you can read about it here and here.
