Shutter malfunction on my K-r

Has anyone else had a shutter problem that the cameras shutter just goes off rapidly when the camera is turned on? Mine did when only 8 months old. Had to send in for repair.

k-r shutter problem

I had the same problem with my new K-r. You must clean the contacts on the lens and camera. There is a youtube video on how to clean your lens contacts. Cured my problem.
