Inconsistent shutter speed

Anyone ever have problems with a shutter "hanging" up? I have a Pentax K5 that recently started giving me problems. Inconsistently giving longer exposures even when using the manual setting. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Check that the longer exposure noise reduction setting is not turned on.

Thank you so very much for your suggestion. I had turned on the noise reduction setting and turning it off worked and saved me a repair charge. Thanks again!

Glad that it worked out for you

I first noticed this 'feature' when I performed some long exposures of the night sky. It was bit annoying but I figured out how to get rid of it.
