K5 question hourglass symbol problem

Does anyone know why the hourglass symbol on my K5 takes more than a few seconds now to go away and show the photo preview screen? This is happening in both of my K5's one of which I don't use much. I've had them for about 4 years now and this just started. I use 16GB SDHC cards by EMTEC and SanDisk and when I took the camera to a repair place the guy put in a 64GB extreme pro card and it made no difference on the speed. Any help would be appreciated. I don't want to have to send them to RICOH.

You probably need to disable distortion corrections
