K-5 - Clicking noise on every user action

Hi all,

Have had camera several days without a problem, but all of a sudden today, the camera started making "shutter" click sounds on every single user action -

can't focus and shoot
every menu option change or user input to any of the user controls triggers a "clicking" shutter noise.

I can't seem to get out of this mode despite changing lenses.

Any ideas here?

Hi tried taking out the battery, waiting a minute, and putting it back in - no luck.

Have noticed that while i'm stuck in this mode, the top right status / info LED display does not show information relating to "F" / Aperture value.

If i turn the power on and off, the camera does seem to find focus and re-display the proper "F" / Aperture value. However after a few camera shots, the display indicators for "F" disappear again coinciding with the current bug where i cannot move without the shutter opening and closing repeatedly. In this mode, I cannot shoot, despite being able to move around the UI display.

Despite the battery showing full strength, am re-charging it currently - to see if it makes a difference.

Nämä samat viat on Nikon, Canon ja muissakin järjestelmä kameroissa. Asiasta mainitaan näitten kameroiden käyttöoppaissa. Minulla ilmeni samaa vikaa K20D mutta ei viellä K-5. Ei kuulu takuun piiriin jos ei jää peili jumiin, sanotaan jossakin ohjeissa.
