Sony Z1 iris stuck on closed

Hi I have 2 Sony Z1's both 3 years old and recently serviced and in great working condition- but only the other day the iris stuck on closed on one of them - after being told to give it a whack by a technician at Mitcorp (Creative Video) it came back on but it happened again yesterday and has shut down - anyone had this problem before and any idea what this may cost to fix and whats involved?

Ouch - 960 repair. For that money you could have (nearly) bought two Panasonic SD900s (555 each, delivered to your door). And if you don't know how good the 900 is, better you avert your eyes before reading this.
