K-r strange behavior?

Last few days I've noticed something strange with my camera. If I lock the focus by half pressing the shutter release button and take a picture, I will get another in-focus confirmation/ a beep and a red light in VF/ . It is right after the picture is taken and I am letting the SR button go. On few occasions the camera would take a second shot even though it is in single drive mode – if I happen to hold the SR button pressed a bit longer. It wasn’t like this before and it is kind of annoying.
A week ago the e-dial knob started jumping steps back and forward if I try to magnify picture in preview mode, or change shutter speed, or F number. There is another tread about that and I know the camera needs to go for servicing by Pentax. I am on 5500 shots and I will take another 2-3k more before I send it over to them.
Anyone with similar experience or explanation for it?

To ask the obvious - is the drive mode on single shot (rather than continuous)? - Sorry just reread you post and I see that you said it was in Single shot.


Does not help but I occasionally get this on my K-x. I think it is just shutter button bounce but its not frequent enough to worry me. Sounds like something to add to your fix list to me.

if you are having the e-dial issue might be worth sending in

For future reference, in the Pentax world, "SR" means shake reduction. I was racking my brain trying to figure out where there was a SR button on the K-r I wasn't aware of. Then I realized you meant "Shutter Release."
