    Does this camera have auto zoom, or do you have to rotate the lenses?

SOURCE: Pentax zx-50 Shutter Problems?

I really think this is the classic zx - 50 shutter motor problem : small motor on the side of the mirror box is not cocking the shutter . This is very repairable but unfortunately it requires fair amount stripping down of the camera to get to the fault and so you will have to take it in for repairs.

SOURCE: Film advance lever

Yes this is fairly common with K 1000 and the Spotmatics : although the shutter is cocked and hence you cannot advance film you cannot release shutter because mirror box is not cocked. Remedy : remove bottom cover and locate mirror box lever which protrudes slightely and is movable up and down and is spring loaded. Move upwards until it licks in position ( moving up against spring tension ). Now release the shutter and camera should let you advance the film .

Can you get a digi body camera that will take the 35mm lenses for pentax MZ-7


Hi,

You can try buying a Pentax SLR. But you most probably will need a converter to attach the lens.(That is if the lens will even work at all on the new body).

Cheers

After advancing the film, most times the shutter does not triggers.


Yes, I solved the problem. Apparently the problem was cused by grease aging in the mirror box due to the fact that de camera had not been used for a long time. I alternatively advanced the wind lever an depressed the shutter several times and now the camera is working ok. Regards,

Film advance lever stuck


The shutter parts are most likely broken. That is usually the tell-tale sign of a broken camera, not advancing. Repairs for film cameras are very expensive and if parts are needed, it may be impossible for a 20+ year old camera. My suggestion is to find a replacement film camera system. Your Ricoh lenses will fit on a Pentax camera, but not work in Auto Mode. Prices of used Pentax cameras with built in motor drives are around $100. Check on line cameras stores. They have lots of use cameras/lense. A lens to use on that is another $75 or so. Only Nikon and Canon make new film cameras anymore. If you want an indestructable K-mount, find a Pentax K1000. Many lenses are available but no motor drive nor auto exposure on that model.

Pentax ME shutter triggered just from advancing film


miraje,
the shutter locking lever is sticking. time for a clean, lube & adjust.
i would take, or send this fine rugged camera to a reputable camera repair shop, have an estimate for a cla.
This model pentax is made with very little plastic and will last a long time with an occasional cla.

Camera will not auto focus


Take the lens off and rotate the focus ring, it should turn very easily with little gear noise.Try a different AF Pentax lens that you know is good.
I'm sure the lens is binding, take the lens to a camera repair shop for an estimate cost to repair.
