K-50 Sensor Shaking a lot in Live View

Just started today. The sensor (Ithink) shakes like crazy. The sensor is fine while I use the viewfinder, but shakes a lot while using live view. I have never had this happen before since I bought the camera last fall.

I have tried to remedy this by disabling dust removal, and have turned of shake reduction, but it still shakes. I can hear it, as well as see it moving the image in the live view. It moves quite a lot and is of course not enabling me to take anything decent.

Normally that would be shake reduction, sure it is turned off? On at least some models, you can set it so it only enables SR (while in live view) when you hit the shutter so it isn't shaking all the time -- it very noticeable with long focal lengths. But again, it shouldn't do that if SR is off...

SR is definitely off. Looks like I may have to get warranty work on it.

Yup, I've seen a couple reports of this and it requires servicing. Basically the SR system gone haywire.
