K5 shutter remains closed during live view and video

Hello.

I bought my K5 about one year ago (roughly 15000 shots). Today, it appears that my shutter remains closed during live view and video operation. Also, it doesn't seem to be systematic either; but, once it starts, it continues. In order to observe this, I was able to see the problem in action by opening up the k5 and watch the shutter not moving up during LV and video modes. Taking the battery out didn't do much either. Also, I reinstalled the firmware to 1.16. I've reset to factory settings as well.

Does anyone have an idea about what to do next other than sending it in for repair (it's still under warranty)?

I'd really appreciate the input from the community.

What you describe is not something that can be addressed by settings or incantations. Warranty service is probably your best option.
