My k10d is failing big time

I was shooting some skating the other day with my k10d then suddenly the shutter sounded wierd like 2 pictures was taken and I was able to take one more pic before the Shutter and aperturelever broken.
Also the lensmount is somewhat damaged because it takes a lot more force to replace lenses than before which I think should have anything with the shutter or aperturelever inside the camera?
15k Pictures taken.

You can't check DOF nor can you take pictures or clean sensor with mirror up but AF still works tho.

When I was cleaning my sensor with mirror up, before the camera broke down the sensor was going bezerk. The sensor was moving in highfrequency only when I use mirror up cleaning and you can clearly hear it buzzing around with cracking noises. It wasn't like this 4 months ago.

IS didn't work properly. It even amplified the shaking from my hand which gave more blur.

This is an early sample which has problems with dust inside the LCD.

Any known problems like this?

Out of curiosity, what lenses have you been mounting on your camera? I have never had a problem with my K10D, but managed to permanently damage a Ricoh film camera by mounting a defective lens.
