SOURCE: Major Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR Camera Problem!!!

The mirror box control mechanism needs servicing ( rubber parts have perished and are gumming up the workings of the mirror mechanism so shutter is not workingrking) . Unfortunatelly this requires complete strip down and so should be done professionally.

Others here have suggested the problem lays with the plastic gear on the advancing motor beside the mirror.

This might cost $100 or so...?

SOURCE: I have a pentax k1000 35mm slr camera. the light

The light meter has failed.

You can usually get it repaired (it's even possible to do so on a DIY basis if you're fairly handy, just search "k1000 meter repair", click here for one immediate possible fix), but it may be cheaper and easier to obtain a handheld light meter instead.

If you do get it repaired then at the same time get a full CLA service (Clean, Lubricate, Adjust) and have the gooey foam light seals replaced. Some repairers may try to charge extra for the latter one-off job, but usually do it for free when you smile and politely point out that you can take your business elsewhere.

Although simple and very basic, a good clean K1000 in a freshly serviced and fully functional condition is one of the only Pentax 35mm SLR's which is still worth reasonable money simply due to high demand for them. If you choose to keep it then it should be good for many more years of flawless service.

I hope that I've helped, please rate my answer.

Shutter wont close


Try setting the shutter to B and see if you can trip the shutter. If no go then it has mechanical problem. If it works on B but not on other shutter speeds, you have electronic problems.

Can anyone help mine seems to be locked i can't wind or click the take picture button ?


Start with cleaning the battery cap and contact inside the camera with a pencil eraser to make them shiny. A fresh set of S76 button cells would be the next step. The camera is electronic and requires battery power to operate.

are you sure the camera is a Pentax K1000.
the K1000 is a manual 35mm film camera, the only electronics in it are for the light meter. plus a circuit for the flash connections.

Eats batteries like thers no end !


Hello davidpritchie,  As I recall, this was Pentax's way of mating electronics with mechanical cameras and the success rate was quite good. The only problem with the Pentax Super Program was the rather complex electronic circuit board. Your canera could have a short, bad condensers, bad on-off switch, etc. You would need to do a circuit check from batteries to every electronic component using battery power. Wow - really expensive and time-consuming = complete stripdown and repair. The camera is over approximately 30 years old making it a classic. It is no longer in production meaning parts need to be cannabalized from another old non-working Pentax Super Program. The cost of repair would exceed the value of the camera. Look for another good used model or move on to a Pentax DSLR (digital SLR) camera as your tool. Sorry I couldn't give you a better answer on how to fix your problem.
