SOURCE: wont turn on

Hello,
I assumed that you loaded a fresh battery set and with correct polarity ,otherwise it does give such signal.
If you have the user manual,please check the other alternatives on trouble shooting section.
If you do not have a user manual you can visit the site below where instruction manual copies for Pentax,
www.pentax-manuals.com

It's not an official site, but the manuals for downloading are better quality copies and in color
where possible: and they have the MZ30 too.

SOURCE: My pentax k1000 works great

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.

I would say the film in the camera is lost.
Take it out with as little damage to the film as possible. If required cut the film and remove from the camera spool.
Try the camera with no film, does it work.
It could just be a bad roll of film, unlikely but possible.

Does not flash with takumar zoom lens attached (Pentax SF10)


You don't state which Takumar model you have, but your camera is behaving entirely correctly.

The built in flash on the SF10 is automatically disabled when certain lenses are used, this is because the low position and narrow coverage of the flash combined with the size of many lenses causes the light path of the flash to be blocked or the flash coverage will simply be too narrow for some wide angle lenses; this can create vignetting or other dark shadows from the lens to appear in the photo. When a proper SMC-Pentax F lens is used the camera will warn you of this, but third party lenses like the Takumar lack the ability to trigger the warnings.

Built in flash units on all SLR's are just a handy get-you-by feature for parties and snapshots using standard lenses. For all other use, there simply is no substitute for using a proper external flash.

I suggest that you read the manual, if you don't have it then you can download it for free from here.

I trust that my answer has fully resolved your question; if so then please return the favour by rating my answer.

Screen is black and film won't load


If it's a 35mm film camera and you see nothing through the viewfinder, then as long as the lens cap has been removed, your camera has a locked up mirror.

You don't give any clues which exact model you have, but if it's one of the later electronic autofocus models with automatic film advance then the additional detail that the film isn't loading confirms that your camera simply has no power. Replace the batteries and all should be well.

If your camera does not have automatic film advance then you still almost certainly have flat batteries and just need to learn how to correctly load and wind the film.

I have no idea how to put my film in the "Pentax mz-m" camera? Someone help me. I'm new to this as I am just doing photography at school!


Pull up on the rewind knob ( left side ) to open the film door. put film cassette in chamber then lower rewind knob and pull enough film leader to the take up spool. attach film to spool. close the film door then advance the film to #1 on the counter.

Pentax SF10 Camera -- double exposure


If you press the film release button like you are going to rewind exposed film you may be able to activate the film advance lever to cock the camera so you can take another picture, and the film should stay on the first exposure allowing you to re - expose it. I would underexpose each image 1 F stop because.you are exposing the same film twice. Double exposures are always an iffy proposition and anything can happen. After the second exposure cocking the film advance should allow the film to advance once again. You might test this on the final pictures on a roll in case the camera won't start advancing the film after you try it. This way you won't blow a whole roll worth of pictures testing it.
