New k-50 mirror jam I think??????

Hi had the k-50 for over a month now and have done near 3000 shots poor baby lol. Not really a problem as of yet but have had what I think is a mirror jam twice it rights itself when I clear the settings it has happened indoors under fluorescent lighting both times it basically beeps continuously when I have the trigger finger put down until I reset and then set up to the previous settings and off I go again. Like I said not really a problem but wondering if anyone else has suffered this? Should I be worried?

Thanks in advance.

That just sounds like the self-timer mode to me. Did you accidentally change the drive move via the up button on the 4-way pad?
