Shutter firing randomly

It is worth checking your firmware...we had a problem on Xmas day with new camera. Talked to the shop and they advised downloading and updating from pentax web.
latest version is 1.11 ........solved the problem

I had the same issue, turns out it needed a new aparature control unit. Great turn around time from Pentax. They received it last Wed, 1-11-12. I received it back yesterday on 1-18-12. Only one week. I'm impressed. They replaced the aparature control unit, checked my lenses, and upgraded the firmware. So far, it works great! Other than the $25 to ship it back to them (had to buy insurance), I'm impressed with the turn around time. Thanks Pentax.
