Shake reduction on K-5 going nuts

I have asked around here before about this problem but noone knew anything about it then. So I managed to record a video of it. And now it much more frequent. Everytime I start the Camera it starts.

So, I have shake reduction off, and auto level off ( you can see this in the video)

When you take the picture the sensor start jumping untill curtains closes and it goes still. Only way I manage to take pictures now is to activate LV and spank the camera until it stops and go back to regular shooting for 1-10 shots untill I have to do it again.

Here is the video on my flickr page

Sounds like you are looking at having the camera go in for repairs.
