Open the camera film cover back.

The flip up switch to rewind the film has fallen off, I have all the original pieces but cannot fit the bar in. How do I take off the rewind lever to fix it?


Perhaps the following site will help you visualize the fixing. I remind you that these film cameras sell for very little now days and can be purchased for a song. see: http://www.slideshare.net/lokerd/pentax-k1000-35mm-slr

My pentax k1000 works great except for when I first load the film. Every time I first load the film, the rewind knob wont rotate when I snap pictures. Everything on the inside is intact and usually I have...


I'm not sure I see a problem here. There is enough slack in the film that the first few exposures can spool out of the canister without it turning. If in doubt, close the back and then _lightly_ turn the rewind crank to take up the slack. Don't force it, just turn it until you feel resistance. Then advance the film and see whether the rewind knob turns.

Pentex k1000 rewind knob unscrewed, shaft fell inside camera


first make a small hook on the end of a straightened paper clip. insert the hook and pull up rotating the hook as you pull up. being careful not to bend the spring near the hole. once the back door is opened check the rewind shaft, there should be a beveled edge on the collar of the shaft. rotate the shaft while pushing up. if no beveled edge on the shaft use the paper clip to push the spring out of the way while inserting the shaft. if it still will not return file a bevel on the collar of the shaft. I am assuming there is no film in the camera as the canister will prevent the shaft from falling in.

Pentax K1000s tear film


Film issues on the Pentax K. 1000 can be caused by three things. The first, is the cassette fails to lay flat when you inserted into the camera when this happens in the film is pulled across it will pull at an angle against the rewind shaft causing the film to bind and the main drive sprocket to tear the film. The second issue is caused when the take-up spool is bound and pulls too harshly on the film itself you can test this by resting your thumb against the take-up spool not the drive sprocket the take-up spool winding and winding the camera it should slip a little If it's very stiff and pulls hard against your thumb that's probably your culprit. The third issue is a bent rewind shaft if the rewind shaft has been damaged by impact it can come into connection with the main body of the film and cause a binding.
The first thing I would check is to make sure that film spool is laying flat if you'll notice on the door there is a spring mechanism that is designed to hold that film cassette down flat be sure that that spring mechanism is pressing against the top of the film cassette and it doesn't hurt to pull it out slightly and re-arch the spring to press down on the film cassette. See if this cures your problem.

are you sure the camera is a Pentax K1000.
the K1000 is a manual 35mm film camera, the only electronics in it are for the light meter. plus a circuit for the flash connections.

Rewind shaft installation


bremerfamily,
to remove the shaft, lift the knob until the film door opens, place a small screwdriver between the prongs and turn the knob to the left. pull the shaft down and out. replace the shaft------ if the new shaft has a notch on the collar just rotate the shaft while pushing back in. if no collar, use a pin to push the spring away while inserting the shaft----- don't force it or you will bend the spring.

Film developing clear


Hello

This problem could have a number of causes,

To check to see if it is a camera fault of developing fault you could try using a cheap colour film in the camera and getting it developed at a normal photo processor.
This will determine in which half of the process the fault lies.
If the pictures from the colour film are the same then it must be a camera usage problem or fault.
If the pictures are ok from the colour film then it will be a problem in either the film being used, developing problem (poor mix of chemicals etc).

This will just speed up the diagnosis a bit.
