Question about Pentax K1000 35mm SLR Camera
We've been told the part required is obsolete so the camera can't be fixed.
Never liked the camera -- not a patch on the old ME Supers. Third fault on it. Won't ever buy a pentax again.
In summary poor camera, poor service.
This is one of the best SLRs ever made. used by the military, police, schools and professionals.
yes it can be fixed with good used parts. it may not be the shutter. take off the bottom cover and check to see if the vertical lever with the spring in it is facing toward the back cover. if it is, push it back towards the lens mount until it locks with the catch lever.
if not then find a good repair shop that still fixes obsolete film camera's. there are many.
