Question about Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR Camera
I am unable to advance the film because the lever will not wind all the way. It doesnt move the film take up spool. How do i get the film to advance?
Your camera is cocked but since the shutter is not working you cannot release it and hence your film advance mechanism does not work. ME-super will work without batteries in full manual mode so set your shutter to B and try to release it. If the shutter will not release in B mode then the shutter/mirror box will need servicing : rubber components in the mirror box mechanism have perished and need replacing. After that your camera will be fine for another couple of years.
