The same thing happened to mine Saturday night. Sad to read that it's going to get worse (i.e. the one shot to open the blades won't last for long.)

For what it's worth my shutter count is 14229.

Well, maybe not all get worse...good luck.

My good luck ran out.  I hadn't used it much since the blades not opening problem started, but thought I would give it a go, and set it on the manual so the initial blank shot wouldn't take so long.  But it's died completely.  Lens extended, then camera shut itself down.  Restarting briefly gets me the black screen with the info (shutter speed, type of focus, etc) displaying, but it dies in a second or so.
