This sounds like a common problem with this product, I hear this one a lot and this also happened on my camera. One of the only solutions is to contact the company's customer support and tell them the issue.

The light meter on my pentax k1000 is not working, despite new battery


Many possible causes. First is that the battery is in upside down. Next you should remove the bottom cover 3 screws and the bottom cover. You can then remove the battery compartment and check for battery leakage corrosion on the wire on the bottom. If the corrosion is too bad it will wick up the wire to the top circuit board. You would have to remove the front and top covers to replace the wire.

the least likely cause would be the failure of the photocell that turns on the meter.

finally, if the camera has been impacted the meter may be broken. Without a battery the needle should rest In the middle of the scale (half way between top and bottom, in the cut out). If, when you put in the battery and the needle goes either to the top or bottom and stays there, and stays there no matter what setting, it is a sign the meter is broken.

Mirror lock up


Turn it off the green rectangle setting and see if it still does this (for example, turn the mode dial to P instead). If it stops doing that, then the flash up shaft in the top cover is bent. If it still does, then either the phase switch on the bottom of the mirror box needs to be cleaned, the shaft the phase switch gear is on is broken (common) or the shutter has a problem.

Turn the aperture ring to f/22 and if the lens has a lock, lock it. You control the aperture from the camera body, the same as on a lens without an aperture ring.

Cant find batteries I live in Georgia


Depending on the battery holder, you can use AA, AAA, lithium.
If you have lithium battery holder, buy AAA battery holder or AA battery holder from eBay.

Model QTsi Maxxum. Need a new battery chamber door. The door is broken off. Any ideas?


The battery door on these models just hooks under a wire next to the battery hole. They can pop off rather easily as they are a small piece held in place by a spring, essentially.
You can often find the part on ebay for a few $ and snap it in place yourself. The same battery door is used by the XTsi, HTsi, STsi cameras.
Its very possible that you did not lock it properly the last time you put in new batteries. Hold the door down while you turn the quarter as you lock or unlock it. Otherwise the pressure of the battery spring will prevent a good lock.

I can't get it to turn on. I put a new AA battery in but it still won't turn on. Do I need special batteries? Or which button is the power button?


  • The HTsi & HTsi Plus cameras do not take AA batteries. They take two CR2 batteries. One AA battery will only be 1.5 volts. The CR2 batteries are 3 volts each, providing 6 volts to the camera(when you have 2 installed). So if you insert a AA battery, there is not a high enough voltage to allow the camera to operate, which is why it doesn't do anything in your case. The AA battery will not damage the electronics of the camera, but it may physically damage the "battery compartment door" if you have to force it closed.
  • There is a slide-type button on the back that is labeled "Lock . . On".
    The "On" mode is just that, it turns the camera on. The "Lock" mode is actually the "Off" mode.

Mirror Locked in Up Position


When you say you put in a new roll of film, did the camera advance the film with the mirror locked up? Have you tried triggering the shutter few times to release the mirror? If that doesn't work, open the back of the camera. Turn the film take up spool in one direction...that should release the mirror down. Turn it also in the opposite direction. If that doesn't work, reach inside the lens mount opening and pull the mirror (very very gently) down. Don't force it down if it doesn't want to go. Sometimes that releases the mechanism that freezes from sitting idle for too long. It is always a good idea to take the camera out and triger few frames every couple of months to keep things lubricated. Let me know if that fixes it. AJ.
