k100d shutter sticking

Hi, my k100d has a problem. Sometimes, after I take a picture, the shutter starts clicking and then stays closed until I turn it off and back on. Is there a reason for this? It doesn't do it all of the time, but I haven't noticed any specific pattern. Any ideas? I thought maybe it happened when the batteries were weak, but I just put new ones in and it's doing it again. Also, it doesn't matter if I am using Automatic, Manual, or any of the other settings, it does it in all of them. Please help!

Have you tried another lens to see if it does the thing?Also,do you have the aperture ring on the lens on the A setting, if it has one?
