    but not like the mirror "stuck up". in my case i can still take pictures but the photos will have black edge on the top.
    any idea where and how much will it cost to solve this problem?
    many thanks!

    Well it's out of warranty and if you really think it is worth to do then send it in, other wise get a second hand K5 or K5II/IIs on B&S.
