Question about Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR Camera
When i advance the film and try to take a picture it doesn't work and have to do it again, so every second picture takes. i took it to be repaired once and they said the advance was slipping, it worked for a little while, and is now doing it again. could it be something else?
This has happened with my pentax super program. All that was wrong is the the spool/winder was dirty. It needed to be cleaned. You open up the back of the camera. Stick something such as a small screw driver, just something to stop the film winder from turning. Now turn the top of the winder off while keeping the bottom part in place. Be very careful not to close the back of the camera while you do this. Once you have it out give it a clean with a soft cloth and then put it back in. I found it tricky to align it and get it back through the whole. But, that's me. After that it worked perfectly. Until the next time in a year or so it needed to be cleaned again. Hope this helps.
