I need a new battericap

Normally you'd have next to no chance: not many AFM35's were made and they mainly appealed to well-off, older, amateur photographers. As a result used ones are rarely for sale and parts donors are as rare as **** ****. If you do find a parts donor they've likely been dropped damaging the battery cover which is exactly where the camera tends to land. On the plus side, the cover on this model is a round bayonet type fitting much like the type used on some film SLRs and sometimes on motor drive covers. I don't currently have an AFM35 in my collection but I do have a Canon Sureshot Classic 120 and the battery cover looks like it may well be a passable replacement for your damaged one. As a first point of call visit a camera repairer or a large used film camera outlet to try a few covers for size. If you're in the UK and in the London area then Mr.Cad in Croydon is hard to beat for odd parts like these. I'm confident that you'll find a cover which fits, but you may need to do a little surgery to transplant parts from the old cover to the new to get a fully functional cover. The only other fix is to get one custom made by an engineering hobbyist. They'll need either the original cap as a pattern or may be able to use the camera itself to work out what's needed. You can also be a bit more Heath Robinson and adapt a cover which doesn't really fit properly at all, but is held in place by a plate secured to the bottom of the camera using the tripod mounting thread. At the very least it will buy you time whilst you source a better alternative. Canon Sureshot Classic 120's are fairly easy to find and go very cheaply (£15 or so on auction sites). If you see one in good condition then you've nothing to lose in trying it: even if the cover does not fit you'll discover that the camera originally cost about the same as the Rollei and does pretty much everything the Rollei does but is a largely unrecognised gem. The light metering is highly reliable and the spot metering is superb. I can honestly say that the 38-120mm zoom lens outperforms some of my Leica and Zeiss T* primes and in my opinion is one of the best lenses ever fitted to any compact 35mm which I've owned. The only downside is that it's autofocus only. I hope that you've found my suggestions to be of some use and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

My photo's are grainy and fuzzy.

Sounds like you are not getting enouth light on the film or they are being printed by the lab too light. Without more info it is hard to say. Take the pictures and camera to a camera store and see if they can help.

No power when battery was replaced

I have found some variation in how long the CR2 batteries are. You might try bending the negative contact up to give more pressure against the battery.

Zoom lens not retracting

May be a bit of grit gas got in. Do not try to manually manipulate it- this will wreck the motor drive. A Vacuum clean suck way have some affect. Certainly contact Pentax Tech Support Team .

Take the battery out then push some buttons - the zoom buttons or the release button - til the LCD goes blank. This sometimes resets the circuit if there is really no problem. Then reinsert the battery and try again. If the H reappears, there is a problem with your zoom. It'll have to go to a repair shop.
