There may be a simple fix for this problem. Place a screw driver behind the latch, hold the door handle open and use the screw driver to flip the latch back out.

You have to hold the door handle as if you where opening the door and flip the latch out at the same time. The latch does not open on its own, the pressure of the door opening is what flips the latch when you open the door.
