My camera wont' take a picture...PLEASE HELP!

I have a Pentax ZX-7 35mm, it was my uncles and he passed away. We can't seem to find the owners manual. I put it on Auto Pict and it seems like it is taking the photo but won't turn over on the number dial. I need extreme help, it doesn't seem like it is processing the photo. Thank you.

My camera has been put away for a couple years just put in fresh batteries and now the shutter will not take a picture. It will focus on auto and manuel setting will not release all the way to take the...

Before using it I suggest you to keep it in a dehumidifier. Or a large airtight container with dehumidified silica gel. Keep it there for two or three days.
When a camera is lying around, fungus tends to grow inside. Also the metal parts become rusty. Dehumidifying and exposing to mild sunlight might reduce these effects.
Gentle patting might also relieve the problem. Don't pat too hard, or you will have more problems!

Which zoom lens to buy for my pentax zx-50

Two lens should be good enough. First one for closer objects, 28-80mm lens which covers wide angel to portrait shoots and 70-200mm for distance shootings. Bring the camera to the camera shop to try on. Some pawn shop should have good prices. makes sure to purchase with returnable guarantee if not satisfied. -Good Luck. -James

Pentax zx-50 Shutter Problems?

I really think this is the classic zx - 50 shutter motor problem : small motor on the side of the mirror box is not cocking the shutter . This is very repairable but unfortunately it requires fair amount stripping down of the camera to get to the fault and so you will have to take it in for repairs.
