645z Shutter Issue...

Hey gang,

I'm having some trouble with the shutter on my Pentax 645z and I'm wondering if you all have experienced anything like it? Not sure if the shutter is going out or what might be going on?

Here are two short video clips showing what is going on -

and a second clip

Thanks for any help!

Unless the mirror is stuck (try freeing it gently), this looks like something that will need servicing.
