k10d sensor shaking like mad

has anyone experienced this...my sensor shakes right after every short exposure. it also shakes DURING every exposure of more than 1/10 sec. it goes nonstop when i hold the shutter open set on B.... Actually, it may be shaking during short exposures as well- just to fast to see.

the camera recieved a minor blow whn drunk uncle dropped it - i plan on sending it to pentax for service and wondered if anyone has seen this, experienced it and if so, how much i can anticipate billing his sorry ass...

How do you know it is "shaking"? Are you hearing a noise? And is it possible this noise is simply the shake *reduction* feature, which does indeed move the sensor to *counteract* the shake of the camera?

I haven't experienced this, thank goodness. Mine makes a shaking noise when I turn it on, but that is the dust removal feature doing its thing. Good luck.
