Question about Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Battery cover/cap I found this camera in my parents basement and am really excited to start using it. However there is no manual so I don't know what kind of batteries to use and the cap/cover is missing. Is there anyplace I can order a replacement from or is there any way I can improvise a replacement?

    Cap damaged by non-use of coin to open so I need a source to obtain a replacement.Also camera back needed as present one needs to be taped in order to give secure closure.I am told it is also advised to have new "lining"fitted to inside of frame to give a truly light-secure seal avoiding light entry.

    I can assist the other query by stating that the camera uses 2X watch type batteries KodakKA76 1.5V or similar

REPLACE BATTERY ON t70


The T70 uses two AA batteries. They don't have to be lithiums; alkalines and rechargeable NiCd/NiMHs will work just as well.
The batteries go inside the grip on the right side of the camera, under the lid on the bottom. Push the latch toward the center of the camera and the lid will flip up. Follow the illustrated instructions beginning on page 8 of the manual.

The camera uses two 1.5V alkaline LR44 batteries or two silver-oxide SR44 batteries. You can get two alkalines for about 5USD at

Missing battery cap


I lost the battery cap of my K1000 on vacation...I replaced the battery and taped it snugly in place with a bandaid. It hasn't budged in a year! Just find a good strong tape and tape over the battery.

Can't open battery compartment.


ashe 1977

there are two ways to fix this.
1- remove the bottom cover, take the rubber seal off from the battery compartment, remove the battery then soak the bottom cover in vinegar overnite. this will remove all corrosion. remove the battery cap and clean the threads. completely dry the cap and bottom cover, apply WD40 to battery cover threads. clean battery contact with pencil eraser ( carefully ). reinstall the rubber seal, replace bottom cover.------ best fix.

2- this may not work but it's worth a try. just apply ( carefully ) WD40 around battery cap and let it set for about an hour, re-apply and wait another half hour. If this doesn't work refer to # 1

Loading batteries


Most Nikon manual focus cameras I see have the same battery chamber, and their battery loading procedure are exactly the same. Use a coin to unscrew the battery chamber at the buttom, the batteries should be instered into the battery holder (the unscrewed part) , with negative end goes in first. Also refer to the battery insertion direction on the side of the plastic part of the battery holder you will find it :)

Camera inoperable


According to the manual found here:
http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/ZX50.pdf

It says, "If the film is not loaded properly, 'E' on the LCD panel blinks, indicating that the film is not loaded properly. Open the back cover and load the film once again."

My led's are not coming on at all on my Pentax ME Super.


Easy solution : remove battery cover and clean inside the battery chamber AND the battery cap/cover itself ( use pencil erasor or anything slightly abrasive )
More demanding solution : remove top cover and locate red wire on the left hand side of the circuit board ( impossible to miss; the wire brings power from battery chamber to the main board ) and resolder ( dry joint ) . You should also actually measure whether you are getting 3V through this wire ( one connection to the contact and the other to the body of the camera ). If you are still not getting anything out from the battery chamber the red wire needs replacing.
