Pentax K-01 shutter curtain stays open

Hi everyone.

My K-01 has its shutter curtain constantly open, even when it is turned off. It appears to be taking photos without exposure issues, which is understandable since the shutter curtain only closes when the camera is turned of, but it is still not normal to stay open always. Does anyone have this problem? Is there a way to fix it without sending it to service? Is it a design fault covered by Pentax outside the warranty period?

Any help or info will be appreciated. Thanks

Never heard of it before.
I don't think anything is covered outside of warranty unless you bought extended warranty.
