I had that same problem once, and I ended up taking the valve apart. In my situation, that was a good thing as I found a chunk of rubber (from previous owner) which had somehow found it's way into the valve. There's probably a simpler way of re-setting the valve, but at least you know it is possible by taking it apart.
Just a FYI... it should actually be referred to as a combination valve.
See my Cave, Combination Valve
If CV valve is good then will "reset" by its self when normal pressure on both sides are good. Normal foot pressure should do that when brake is push 1 to 3 times. Push hard might work too.
If CV won't reset then likely need a new CV.
Taking apart a CV can be trouble. CV can use label "No serviceable parts inside."
Many times reset fails cause by corrosion from "wet" fluid or water thru switch port.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
