Question about Pentax MZ-50 35mm SLR Camera
Got a pentax mz50 and it has a small hair on the inside of the viewfinder how do i clean it, cleaned everything else ;thank you
That camera has a removable focusing screen. Usually the object(hair) is sitting on top of the focusing screen so the screen has to be dropped down to remove it. There is a clip(frame) accessable from the mirror box that needs to be un-hooked. The frame swings down and usually the screen and a brass shim(s) comes down with it. If your careful and don't actually remove the frame, screen and shim it's pretty straight forward to gently blow the hair out. After removing the hair, gently swing the frame up and clip it back in.If the frame, screen and shim actually fall out it's tricky getting them back in correctly. The screen is also very soft and scratches easily so much care is needed. If you're uncomfortable trying to attempt this then take the MZ50 to a good repair shop. We do this service free and usually while you wait. Other shops may charge you a fee to do it. If the hair is behind the eyepiece then the top cover has to be removed to get the hair out. That is a totally different problem and the camera will need to be repaired. Since the hair dosen't affect the image on the film, you may just want to live with it or have it removed when something else needs to be done when the camera has to be disassembled anyway. Hope this helps.
