When it is stuck you can just turn the lens off and look what is stuck, the mirror or the shutter. Most likely the shutter.

For me, it was the mirror. Sometimes it would stick up; other times it would stick down. Now it's stuck in Arizona!

Something similar happened to my K-5 too, look here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-k-5/212510-scary-issue-k-5-a.html#post2247785
Now it's away for repairing, I send it last week Monday to Pentax Benelux service, I am still hoping...
