Focus/shot and exposure issues

I have a K110 and am having some difficulties:

1 - sometimes autofocus seems "stuck", it does not focus and does not shoot. Often, I get it working again by manually adjusting the focus (so it is WAY out of focus), then it usually works again for a while

2 - sometimes there is quite a delay waiting for it to actually shoot the picture

3 - lately it seems to overexpose by about 1 full stop or so.

Any ideas on what may be causing these issues?

Have you tried a different lens? Or checked your lens on another camera? I guess I'm saying eliminate the lens as the problem first.

Also consider that you may have auto focus to AF-S. in this mode it will stop and not try to require focus if you or the subject shift, but also interlocks the shutter to the focus confirmation. Set to AF-C
