Pentax Da*16-50 over exposing

Hi everybody!
After a month of getting my DA*16-50 I had to send it for repair because the autofocus was working some times, finally end up not working at all. One month later I got the lens and went to a trip to Patagonia, Chile. I was happy with it-autofocus was working finally!
After 10 shoots something strange start to happen, the pictures were all burn out-overexpose. It keep happening sometimes, normally at the worst moment.
Is anybody had this problem? Any solutions for it?
I have to say that only happens with this lens, all the rest of my lenses work perfectly as I am telling them to work.
Thanks in advance

Yep, I had some what similar problem with the DA* 16-50 lens before. Here is the link to my thread:*-16-50mm.html

I ended up getting a different lens from Pentax repair center.

DA* 16-50 Over exposing

Thanks for the answer. I will try to see if automatic aperture closes when shooting and also if work cleaning the contacts.
If that doesn't work It will go straight back to Pentax service (second time same lense differnt issue)
