Question about Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR Camera
Ive got a pentax super A and ive rewound the film using by pressing in the button on the base and then winding the film back up. That worked fine but now the button on the base will not pop back out and i think that is causing my camera to not take any pictures. For this is another problem i am having where I am pressing the shutter release button but nothing happens. Any ideas on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.
Did you check the batteries? What "Poolsman" mentioned in his response is a common problem with Pentax cameras of this age, but if the batteries are flat the camera will not release-or fire. If the camera is charged-or wound- when you push the rewind button but will not release after you rewind the film, the problem may be bad batteries. Check that first. If that's not the problem then "Poolsman's" advice is probably correct.

This is a common problem with the older Pentax SLRs : shutter / mirror box needs servicing . The problem is caused by perished rubber parts. Although the problem is easy to fix, it has to be carried out by a pro because the mirror box has to be removed from the camera so that one can have access to the shutter and the side of the m-box where the problem is. Costs ? +- $150.
