Hi, common problem with these, basically some dust particles have become trapped in the shutter or the rails on which the shutter runs on. A quich blast of pc dust cleaner or similar compressed air cleaner will shift it. No need to open any parts of the camera, f you do, you will void your warranty if it is still valid.
