Question about Pentax K1000 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Loud grinding noise when I "****" the film.

I recently found this camera in my father's closet, he gave it to me.
I loaded the film the first time, and it worked fine, but the negatives came bakc blank.
I asked my photography teacher to load the film properly.
Now when I move the arm to advance the film, it makes an awful grin ding noise.
I don't know a whole lot about cameras as you can tell, but I am very intrested in film and want to do this correctly.
Please, please help me.

Kyle_walsh,
does this noise happen with film loaded or all the time?
this could be a broken gear or the take-up spool is slipping. with the film door opened advance the lever and check if the take up spool is turning. if not turning then a gear is broken. if the spool is turning then the spool is slipping.
there are no new parts available for the K1000, however some camera repair shops have good used parts that can be used.
the take-up spool was one of the very few weak parts of the K1000, you can make a temp. repair if you want.
on the take-up spool push down lightly on the gear like wheel and rotate the spool you should see a hairline crack under where the film is inserted. check both sides. if you find the crack put a very small amount of super glue on the crack using a tooth pick or similar tool. this works 80% of the time.
if you take or send your K1000 to a camera repair shop get an estimate first.

Hello, if the line is freezing there is either a airflow problem or low refrigerant charge. If there is a loud noise most likey the bearings on the motor or the blower wheel is bad and causing a lower amount of air passing over the evaporator coil and thus the freezing of the suction line.

Machine won't drain, or spin and makes a grinding noise


This problem sounds like it could be serveal different thing. A motor that has a broken coupler will make a grinding sound. This machine does not use a belt. A gearcase can aslo make a loud noise when defective. Once I found a wire bra inside a pump and it made a grinding noise. All these things must be check in order to figure out what and where the problems lies.

Loud noise during spin cycle


is it more like a roar or a train going by? if so your rear tub bearing is going out. very expensive have to replace the tub, basket, spinner ring and shaft and seals about 4 hrs for an exprienced tech to do took me 7 hrs to do for the first time. but it will be very close to $1000 to have done not much less to do it yourself.

According to the manual found here:

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."
