Question about Pentax K2 Film Camera
The camera was not working (would not allow me to take pictures) so i changed the battery and it still wont let me use it...do i have to do somthing to turn it on or will it just work on its own. and if none of these what can i do to try and fix it
The camera is not dependant on the battery so changing it will not help.
In order to operate the camera you need to wind on to prime the shutter for firing.
The most common fault that jams these cameras is a catch under the bottom cover. A camera repair person will know what to do about that, but it might not be that.
This is closely related to the K1000 so any solution for that camera will apply.
To see how to open the camera up for repair and how to do this properly there is a camera repair site which deal with this and other cameras in detail. alternatively you can contact the author who can offer a very competitive camera repair service for these models.
