    The camera fell from a shelf, while the lens was out. It'll cost a lot to repair it, it would be great if someone could give me some tips on fixing it, but if going to a repair shop is unavoidable, then I'll go. The lens is now damaged, the camera itself can't shut off and cannot take pictures.  ...HELP!

"To get the lens to retract, we tried to do a slight twist over to the left (looking at the camera like your the subject - camera lens is facing you). Sure enough it went back in! But now it has trouble focusing. That's another question now. Darn thing...we'll see what else we can jimmy :-)"

Yes, with limitations. The lenses will fit on any Pentax (now Ricoh) digital SLR. You may lose autofocus and/or auto exposure metering.

Film cartage broke missing parts


To repair this camera will be well over $100; my opinion not worth it. You would be better served purchasing another camera of the same type from ebay. An alternative terrific camera is the Pentax K1000, better yet K1000 SE. The SE has a split viewfinder, easy to focus. The K1000 have microprism that are more difficult to focus with especially in lower light; need good eyes. Then there is the Pentax K2, that at the time was their top of the line camera. All three cameras can be purchased for about $100-ish. Most will come with the Pentax 50mm f/2.0 lens.

I recently dropped my Pentax K1000....oops! The only damage I noticed was a small dent in the metal side of the lens....hardly even noticeable. But now, the focus isn't working, and the light meter doesn't...


Unfortunately, this is a serious problem.

If the focus ring is not working then there is serious damage inside the lens. This cannot be repaired easily and must be taken in for repair.

As for the light meter, this is slightly more worrying as it is damage inside the body. It could be something as simple as the battery contact. But it could also be somehting more serious.

I would recommend taking it for repair.

If repair turns out to be too expensive I suggest you have a look on ebay. Pentax cameras are available with a wide range of prices and so are compatible lenses. A good upgrade would be a Pentax MX or even an LX if you can afford it. The ME super is also an excellent model if you want soemthing simpler.

Pentax K1000 35mm SLR Camera Lens will not turn or focus= stuck


Impact damage??? remove the lens and check the barrel for straightness. also the rear lens element must be perfectly straight. some of the latest lenses have a plastic helical gear that can be tapped out with a light hammer and a piece of wood ( 1in X 4in. ) used on the high end of the rear lens, if impacted.

Can't get my lense off!


You can use any mm lens you want as long as it was made to fit the K1000.
Is the lens a Pentax lens ?
Push the lens release button down and turn lens Clock-wise then while holding release button down quickly turn lens counter clock-wise, it should come right off.
If it did not then it must be disassembled to remove the lens.

Fresnal lense


What kind of camera? Some camera's have removable fresnel lens held on by a spring loaded frame. Other camera's must be disassembled to replace the lens. There is no way to repair a damaged fresnel lens.
Pentax K1000 must be disassembled.
