Question about Pentax MZ-60 QD 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Pentax MZ-60 very ******* batteries

Sometimes we only get two or three rolls of film to the set of batteries (CR2's). We tried different places to buy batteries and bought very expensive batteries and cheap batteries but was still very ******* batteries. Seemed to discharge in a few weeks if left alone with no picture taking. Anyone else have this problem.

Steve_macint,

the camera has a short circuit. if the camera got wet or was in very high humidity the flex circuit is shorting . take or send your MZ60 to a camera repair shop for an estimate. if the camera has liquid damage they most likely will not repair it.
however if it's just a component part it's fixable.
the battery drain will worsen as the short increases.

Wont turn on


Hello,
I assumed that you loaded a fresh battery set and with correct polarity ,otherwise it does give such signal.
If you have the user manual,please check the other alternatives on trouble shooting section.
If you do not have a user manual you can visit the site below where instruction manual copies for Pentax,
www.pentax-manuals.com

It's not an official site, but the manuals for downloading are better quality copies and in color
where possible: and they have the MZ30 too.

Camera shoots all the film then rewinds.


Repair would be at least $139 from Blue Moon Camera. I would buy another MZ-50 (ZX-50 is the same) off eBay or you could buy a ZX-30 from Blue Moon Camera for $75 with 1 year warranty. They are professional.

PENTAX mz 50 I WAS TAKING A PICTURE WITHOUIT ROLL


Just a guess, but it sounds like the shutter is stuck in the closed position. Maybe you can have the camera serviced. Try to find an online film enthusiast club, such as on Facebook and elsewhere. They might be able to direct you to where you can have your camera serviced. I can tell you that the cost of that camera is about $100 used, and repair might be the same price, so it might be better to buy another one off eBay. They have MZ-50 models for sale and lots of others. Film gear is cheap these days, but repair is not cheap. Better to buy another camera. I'm sorry about your problem and hope you can resolve it. If this was 10 years ago, you'd have a warranty and could have it fixed, but these days it's just easier to buy another camera and probably the same price or cheaper to buy another used/second-hand camera than to pay for repair. Good luck to you.

Pentax MZ 50 film winding problem


Well, I'm not a camera repairman, but it sounds to me (and probably to you too) that the electronics are damaged or perhaps there's dust in the contacts inside. I also have an MZ-50. There's so many electronics involved and they don't age so gracefully. I would consider buying another one off eBay or you can get a ZX-30 (same as MZ-30) for $75 from Blue Moon Camera & Machine with a 1 year warranty (parts and labor). The best way would be, in my opinion, to get a manual, mechanical camera from the 1970s and put a good lens on it. Those seem to last forever. No electronics to worry about. Advance and rewind the film manually. You can use a digital camera as a light meter to set the aperture and shutter speed. I'm thinking of going this route when my MZ-50 finally conks out.
