Question about Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR Camera
My camera works fine. All the LED lights light up and the shutters works fine. The main problem is when ever I take a reading, and then change the aperture it still suggest the same shutter speed no matter what f-stop I use.
Example: If I keep the lens at a f-stop of f2 and says 1/500th of a second then change it to f22. It still says 1/500th of a second without saying its under or over exposed.
Take lens off to check the lens/light-meter coupler situated inside the lens mount at the top part of the mount at 'one o'clock' . First see if it moves freely ,clock wise. Then -with the lens off- look through the view finder while you activate the coupler : moving it should make the l.meter lights move up and down.
If you are not getting any joy the connection between the coupler and the board needs re-soldering ( dry joints ) : remove top cover and resolder two blue wires on left hand side of the board . This should do the trick.
