Pentax SF1n Shutter issue

So I have a SF1n that that an odd shutter issue. the shutter curtains only open when the camera is laying on its back or upside down (View finder on the bottom). It seems as though the shutter curtains are not being pulled with enough force for them to pen against gravity.
anyone ever run into this type of issue.
