Question about Pentax MX 35mm SLR Camera
The mirror on my Pentax MX is stuck in the up position, so that when I look though the viewfinder I see nothing. I have changed batteries, and it flips down correctly about 1/30 of the time after a shot. Is this a electrical connection problem, and what can I do to fix it? How much would a fix for this cost at a camera repair shop?
This is a result of the linkage from the shutter release button being out of adjustment. It is a mechanical fault that can be repaired very easily.
