HELP!!! 645D Jammed Aperture Stick and Mirror Problem

And the mirror automatically begins to go up and down once I turn on the camera or insert the battery...Even if I'm not touching any button.

Any solution?

Thanks...

Doesn't sound good. Can you post a video demonstrating the problem?
What is the shutter count? Do have a spare battery, and if so, does the camera behave the same way with both?

Yeah I'm going to post one.
I found it seems like the mirror flapping problem that used to happen on K-3 before

I only have one battery
Umm actually I don't quite know how to find out the shutter count

Not quite. That happened once to my K-3 and only pulling the battery could stop it. Fortunately, it never happened again.

It might be worth getting another if it saves you from a possibly expensive repair. A spare is always worth having anyway

At the top of the Pentax Forums Home Page there is a box in the top menu named "resources"
At the bottom of the drop-down menu you'll see "check shutter count"

I also found that the shutter won't open, af doesn't show up, and the camera only takes completely black pictures

I'd recommend going to Precision's website or calling them first. Last year I received a defective 645Z from an ebay seller and they quoted $895 just to look at it. Luckily I was able to return the camera and get my money back. Hopefully they will not ask as much for working on a 645D.
