Question about Pentax K1000 35mm SLR Camera
In solution presented by poolseman, I am not able to locate the mirror box lever. I was able to locate a shaft that moves up and down when I press the shutter. That is the only device I can find that moves up and down. Please clearify.

I have a Pentax K1000 film camera and the film advance arm will not move so that i can advance the film. It was working just fine and then it wasn't. There is currently no film in the camera and cannot load new film because of the arm immobolity. Any help?Solution #1 posted on Sep 17, 2007
Hi,powerpe. The mirror release rod can be located in the bottom of the body once the plate has been removed.(there are three screws on the old k1000's) There is a gear train on the left side when viewed turned over.The mirror cockong rod is towards the rear and a little right of the main shaft.You might need to move a little silver pawl with a pin or micro driver then you can push the mirror **** in to release the reflex mirror.the mirror cocking rod is about 1/8" dia.Hope this helps
