K-x crashing

I have a 3 month old Pentax K-x camera it has recently started to continually sound like the shutter is clicking and wont function, if I press LV button it will do this for around 30 sec to a min the camera wont function at all when this is going on I have tried taking off the lens, turning it on and off, switching between modes. It will eventually fix its self and then shoot photos all day without missing a beat. Can anyone suggest what may be the problem?

I'm not sure what the issue may be. Have you checked to make sure your firmware is up to date? I doubt it's a firmware update, but at least worth a try.

Did you get it used? If you just bought it from a shop and it is under warranty, take it back or send it in.

That sounds like an electrical problem similar to K-5 mirror flop.
