Used pentax 645d

Hi guys I bought a used Pentax 645d and everything seems to be pretty good. It only has 16k shutter which isn't to bad. I did a shoot a yesterday and for some reason at one point, my shots were coming out blank just black. The shutter seemed it click and drag on for an extra half second. I thought it was the lens so I grabbed a new lens from samys to try it. I would shoot probably 20 pictures and then the problem would occur. I believe I lost about 13 pictures due to this problem out of the 70 pictures I took on the shoot. Can someone help me out with this problem.

Sounds like the shutter mechanism may need servicing...
