K-30 Under exposure Issue

I have a K-30. Just recently, when I shoot, the images are completely dark, even if I shift to manual and raise ISO and open the aperture. It's almost as if the sensor is 10x less sensitive. Any ideas what is going on or suggestions? Thanks

Most probably you have a failure of the aperture control mechanism (a.k.a aperture block failure).
