The soft-top was put down normally by-way of switch, but now it it won't go up.

Most convertibles can be manually operated. Check your owners manual and with other owners on a Mercedes forum.

I found this: "You will need the tool that is in the white plastic cover in your tool kit by your spare tire, it is a thin wrench that also has an allen key on the opposite end. The instructions on how to use it are printed on the white plastic tool pouch." --- http://mercedesforum.com/forum/mercedes-sl- class-15/94-sl500-soft-top-hydraulic-problems-23887/
