Re: Lens are not coming out
Did you put the lens on up-side down? Don't laugh, it happens. If so, hold the lens lock button in (on camera body)and give the lens a quick counter clock wise twist. It should snap out.
If on correctly, turn lens clock wise while pushing in lock button,then with button still pushed in turn the lens counter clock-wise.

Each camera is going to be different, all we know is, "35mm camera". Please help us help you. What brand/model camera is it? Is it an SLR? if so, the lens should come off with a button and a twist. The back should open easily, too.....
This may be something you've already checked, but there's a small dot both on your lens mount, and on your lens that must be lined up for the lens to mount onto the camera - if they are not the lens will seem to not fit.
There is a lens release button to the right of the lens mount - make sure it is pressed fully before trying to rotate the lens to remove it. When you press the release button, there is a little pin in the lens mount that is retracted to let the lens turn. If you do that and the lens still does not rotate to be removed (and you are rotating it the opposite direction that you mounted it) then the release button assembly is probably broken and the camera will need servicing.
It depends entirely upon what you're after and the type of photography you wish to undertake.
Any Minolta AF mount lens will fit. 28mm is a standard wide angle, 50mm is a standard lens with a field of view approximately the same as the human eye, 80mm is a slight telephoto and for distant subjects 200mm is a long telephoto. Some lenses combine a few into one, they're called zoom lenses and will typically be something like 35-70mm, or 70-200mm. The measurements relate to the focal length of the lens, but generally the larger the number the longer the lens sticks out at the front. Zoom lenses are bulkier and heavier than fixed focal length lenses, but they're also the most commonly used types these days.
The lens should be removable

I am not familar with your exact camera, but I would suspect you have what is call a bayonet mount.
Look for a button around the lens in the body, push it, twist the lens.
I have acouple old lenses from my Alpa 9d (Dead) will they fit?
You can use any mm lens you want as long as it was made to fit the K1000.
Is the lens a Pentax lens ?
Push the lens release button down and turn lens Clock-wise then while holding release button down quickly turn lens counter clock-wise, it should come right off.
If it did not then it must be disassembled to remove the lens.
Honestly, I just got a T70 on ebay for $15. Sounds like it's time to move on. I had an AE-1 for over 10 years but it just wasn't working and one has to weigh the cost of repair, the cost to replace it or upgrade to a modest digital camera.
To release the lens you need to push the lens release button which is on the bottom left of the lens mount, and then turn the lens counterclockwise. If this doesn't work then it is most likely a broken lens release button, and you should then bring the camera to an authorized service technician.
