Re: i would like to know what these do
Bower is brand name skylight is slightly yellow helps soften light there are diffrent densitys. Filter is mostly used to protect orginal glass of lens from dirt smudges scratches & rough treatment. Keep on lens most of the time.
Hyda brand name. PL 3 i believe to be a dark polarizing filter.
Quantaray 1A4 I believe is a haze or skylight filter. Haze filter does almost the same as a skylight filter.
Hanimex brand name. Polarizing filter used to shoot through reflective glass or surfaces (water), also in color used to sharpen colors. The reason it is turnable is it is light directional beaning light comes through it at a angal hold up to light & turn it you can see how it darkens or litens. Also can stay on lens when not useing skylight filter.
reason you have 2 is one of each for two diffrent lens, 49mm & 55mm.

First inspect the bottom of the camera, on the right side there should be the pin that you push in when you roll up the film. If it is not protruding while there is film inside then there is a issue with the mechanism.
If not then it may be an issue with the way the film is inserted. Is it a new problem or has it been an issue since you aquired the camera?
You can use any mm lens you want as long as it was made to fit the K1000.
Is the lens a Pentax lens ?
Push the lens release button down and turn lens Clock-wise then while holding release button down quickly turn lens counter clock-wise, it should come right off.
If it did not then it must be disassembled to remove the lens.
The shutter parts are most likely broken. That is usually the tell-tale sign of a broken camera, not advancing. Repairs for film cameras are very expensive and if parts are needed, it may be impossible for a 20+ year old camera. My suggestion is to find a replacement film camera system. Your Ricoh lenses will fit on a Pentax camera, but not work in Auto Mode. Prices of used Pentax cameras with built in motor drives are around $100. Check on line cameras stores. They have lots of use cameras/lense. A lens to use on that is another $75 or so. Only Nikon and Canon make new film cameras anymore. If you want an indestructable K-mount, find a Pentax K1000. Many lenses are available but no motor drive nor auto exposure on that model.
When you say ''back'' of the film do you mean on the emulsion side or the base side. Base can take light scratches can may desapear in processing..Emulsion side is not forgiving...
Hard to tell..Anything along film path can cause scratches, including the back of the cover, film tension, aperture gate..
Hard to suggest anything precisely other than a good check up by registered Pentax rep.
I once spoted a similar problem by loading a camera with he film wounded backwards. That is emulsion facing the back of the camera and base toward the lens. Emulsion being softer, I found a spot where emusion built up (thus scratching on base side). I did not dare fixing it and sent it for repair for a good clean up.
Under proper lighting, you may also want to remove the lens and carefully look for the scratch in the aperture gate. If you see it, problem is before (feeding side).
Good luck. KX is aging but still a good camera
I don't suggest that you attempt to repair this yourself.
The K1000 is a very solid camera and one that isn't very expensive to repair. Please do yourself a favour and take it to your local camera repair shop. You'll be glad you did.
