Question about Pentax MZ-60 QD 35mm SLR Camera
We sometimes see a vertical foggy area on approximately 1/4 of the right hand side of the photo. It is always the same shape, just a band that goes from the top to the bottom of the photo. Its not clear if it happens in any particular setting, it seems sort of random. What could be causing this? How could we troubleshoot?
Assuming the film door opens from the right, then the most likely reason is the light seal on the door. If it's just got dirty, brush it clean with a stiff brush. If it's badly worn then a camera repair shop may replace it for a reasonable fee - although I have done DIY repairs on this sort of thing using velvet :). Not for the faint-hearted tho'.
BTW the reason it's random is probably that it depends on how long each shot was in the gate before winding on and the ambient light conditions.
