Question about Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR Camera
When advancing film - the winder crank is so tight that it is stretching my film. And at times it is very loose to where it doesn't advance to the next picture. So I have double images, and poor quality streaked ugly pictures. Is their an easy way to fix this?
Take top cover off and look in the area of frame counter ( right hand side ) and underneeth the main transport drive ( under the frame counter ) for a short piesce of metal ( 3 mm long ) that may be wedged in or between the gears of the drive. The piesce breaking off and falling into the drive is a common problem with MEs and ME supers. The broken off piece does not have to be replaced ( no vital role ) just assamble the camera and it will work fine.
