Re: how to turn on the camera
all camera's have a switch, button or lever to turn the power on. look through the finder if any light is on or the meter needle is moving then the power is on. some turn on when the shutter button is pushed in slightly. make sure the battery is good and no corrosion is in the battery compartment.

If there was a film in the camera and you opened the back, all the pictures you took got burned. You need to rewind the film take it out, put a new one in and try to turn on the camera. err should be gone.
One, it could be the battteries. The ME super is not a fully mechanical camera like the mx, if the batteries are depleted then the shutter sticks open as it does not know how long to stay open. Turning the selection wheel to 125X usually unsticks it.
Two, the lubricant that pentax used in the 70's and 80's has a very bad tendecy to polymerise and turn sticky and solid. This turns the camera inoperable. Pentax repair service routinely provide cleaning for affected cameras.
I don't know about the SA-7, but the SA-5 doesn't have an on/off switch as such. Pressing the shutter button halfway activates the autofocus and turns on the light meter. The camera switches off after six seconds of inactivity to conserve batteries, though the shutter can still be released accidentally. Turning the mode dial to the "L" position will lock the shutter and prevent accidental release.
You can find a manual for the SA-5 at http://www.butkus.org/chinon/sigma.htm . It's not ideal, but it should help you get started.
Hi there. The power off lever is on the shutter release button. (the button you press to take a picture).
There are 3 positions for this lever, they are:
Power off is the middle setting while Power on is the top setting and the Self-timer as the bottom setting.
Replace your battery and remember to move the lever to the middle position to turn it off when your done. Don't forget to rate my solution, and have fun with your camera!

Greetings! Answer to your question is, ‘Yes’ we can. Use Sigma
FD lenses. As we know Canon AV-1 has electronically controlled
AE (Automatic Exposure) & has a Canon Breech-lock lens mount. Original generation of FD lenses featured a silver
locking ring at the base. Only that locking ring turns to lock the lens to the
camera body; the lens body remains still. In the newer lens system which was introduced with
this camera, the user has to line up the red dot on the lens, with the red dot
on the camera and simply turned the whole lens clockwise until it clicked into
place. Note: FD-mount cameras could use FL lenses in
stop-down metering mode. Thank you & have a nice day.
