Question about Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR Camera
I purchased a cleaning kit at Ritz camera so I could clean my ME Super and I made the big mistake of using the cleaning solution on the mirror and the opaque (plastic?) area over top the mirror and now it is extremely smudged! I can't get the smudges off. It look horrible when I look through the view finder. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem??? Why would they sell a solution that would make such a mess?
The lens cleaning solution probably is just that. A solution. Very fe claening agents will not leave a deposit behind unless they are wiped away. This is impossible in the textured surface of the screen.
Cleaning the screen is a job for experts only you should never even think about doing it yourself!
To clean the screen it must be removed fromthe camera. For this model the camera needs to be taken apart to do this. If you are lucky, the screen can then be properly cleaned in a ultrasonic tank using special cleaning agents, and then rinsed clean with distilled water.
To see how to open the camera up for repair and how to do this properly there is a camera repair site which deal with this and other cameras in detail. alternatively you can contact the author who can offer a very competitive camera repair service for these models.

Not sure about melting it........ i would be concerned about removing the special coating on the lens. i managed to ruin a digital camera that was tho it was not an expensive one... it still works but the quality of the pictures just isn't the same. be that as it may... use a very clean lint free cloth and a lite amount of water to polish the lens.... it may just be a clouding on the lens that needs to be removed.
