How do you open the film compartment


Film releases are on the sides, or bottoms of cameras. Make sure the film is fully rewinded before you open it (or open it in pitch black, and manually rewind the film into the canister).

On loading a fresh film into the camera the motor winds through to the last frame ie does not stop at first frame


That's entirely correct. Your camera winds all of the film out upon loading and each shot then winds the film back into the canister. Your frame counter works in countdown mode telling you how many shots remain rather than how many you've taken.

Many other camera do the same thing. The beauty of it is twofold: if the camera back is accidentally opened, then the shots already taken are safely in the film canister (except for the last shot), also when the film has finished you wait less time for the short length remaining to be rewound rather than the entire roll.

Film advance lever stuck. Changed batteries but can not move the film advance lever.


Hi fmerlin, If you have film in it you may need to remove the film to free up the advance lever. Go into a closet cover under a blanket etc. Also, Walmart and most drug stores have a big change bag that they could do it for you. With film out it still will not advance it will need to go to Nikon.

Loading film into it.


You pull down on the clip on the side of the camera. That will open the back of the camera. Pull out a little of the film from the canister. Put the canister into the side with the spindle. Put the end of the film that you pulled out over the roller on the opposite side of the camera then shut the lid and turn on the camera.

Pentax K2 Shutter and mirror problem


Without a stripdown it's not possible to give a definitive answer. Clearly the mechnical interlock which prevents the shutter from firing until the mirror is out of the way is not functioning correctly, but pressing the dof button overcomes this.

It's possible that something has broken or worn internally, but far more likely that old dried camera grease coupled with decomposing gooey foam bumpers and light seals has gummed up the workings.

Now that film SLR's are ten a penny and often free on FreeCycle it's certainly makes no economical sense to repair this camera. But it's a real classic and a delight to use so it's worth sending to a professional repair shop for a thorough service just as you would with a classic car or motorbike.

I can't seem to click to take a photograph


Pulling the string doesn't take the picture, it advances the film. Press the button on top of the camera, you'll hear the shutters go, and then pull the string. Just make sure the film is taut when you load it, and that you're not yanking on the advance string too hard.

My lomo will not advance the film after taking a shot


I fixed this a couple of ways with my own LCA.

One is to stick a piece of paper in between the 2 parts of the tape-up spool (the internal and external parts) to make them a tighter fit.

Also, I often fold the leader of the film back (very close to it's end), and push it inbetween the 2 parts of the take up spool, making sure one sprocket is securely placed into the small tooth/hook on the spool. So, the film is folded around the tooth and towards the back, on the inside of the spool.

Film


I am guessing that the film is supposed to wind itself on when you close the camera? If you open the camera you may see that the film "leader" has not been drawn into the camera. When you load the film pull a small amount of the film (1 or 2 inches) out from the canister and place it into the (usually) right hand side of the camera where you will see the gears waiting to engage in the sprockets to pull the film in. The film should also lay flat across the rear of the camera where there are gears top and bottom that should engage with the film.Also check you have fresh batteries.
