If the shutter has 100K operations then the camera may be due for a replacement (not worth repairing).
Please make sure you have a fully changed battery in the camera. If the camera does not have a battery icon anywhere showing a low or dead battery then you have a camera that should be sent to a Nikon Authorized service center. They can clean and repair your camera. They will; QUOTE the repair before you pay. All you are out is shipping costs.
I would imagine the bottom or top half is black. My first suspicion, the vertical IC has bad grounds and needs resoldering. Do not short the pins together with excess solder! I would certainly start there for repairs. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!
Unless it has recently been dropped or the screen cracked, the LCD power drive circuit has failed. Your batteries sound OK if it is taking pictures. 2 and a half years is not an unreasonable life for this camera. I would spend my money and time working toward a new one rather than repairs. Sometimes you can find one on Ebay for parts and may be worth a purchase but don't waste anything on a factory repair. Taking them apart and replacing components is not that difficult and procedures can be obtained online from digital camera REPAIR FORUMS.
You need to take it for a professional repair. The good thing is that this is an all mechanical SLR and was designed so that repairs are usually straightforward. Spares are no longer available, but so many of these cameras were sold and are still in use today that many repairers have a few scrap examples which they can cannibalise when needed.
Given that you can buy a perfectly good used K1000 at online auction sites for between £30-£40 it may not seem like an economical repair, but newly serviced ones with a guarantee sell for over £100 so it's definitely worth it for such a superb classic SLR.
The camera firmware should be reloaded, if this fails then the camera is likely beyond end user servicing and should be repaired by a professional.
The reason your only seeing bottom half is as the reflex mirror is opening upwards to expose the sensor ( traditional cameras opened the mirror then a shutter to expose film ) your cameras sensor is only registering or transferring the bottom half of the image because it is the image is registered bottom first to the top until the shutter closes and the mirror returns to resting position.
Your problem could be the result of firmware or a more serious issue.
It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
