Pentax K-5 - Shoots max aperture only

2 weeks ago my K-5 (~70k shots) failed. It still takes pics, but regardless of the lens, it doesn't close down the aperture. This means you're always shooting max aperture, but the camera thinks its adjusting if you switch it via the menus.

Anyone had this trouble before? I've just been to the local (Romanian) distributor only to find out they're no longer repairing stuff here, but sending it to Bulgaria. Crap. Ideas?
