Disc brake pistons are pushed in and are barely coming back out

Hi

I'm cleaning out the pads on a Deore M486 disc brake and I pushed the pistons back in and flush to the inside of the caliper as one of them was really sticking out, but i didn't hear it pop.

Now the pads are back in but the pistons will barely come out.
Is there a simple fix to this?

Thanks!

Not sure about your situation, but the guy at the bike shop said not to squeeze the brakes while the disc was out. He said I would have to go back to the shop to have it reset.
