Question about Pentax ZX-50 35mm SLR Camera
That will happen if the mirror is stuck in the up position and so blocking any light from entering the viewfinder.
Mirror lock-up is very common on 35mm SLR's like yours where the shutter is entirely electronically controlled and in most cases it's cured simply by fitting new batteries.
If this resolves your problem then please rate my answer, if not then add a comment instead to confirm that the batteries have been replaced and I'll try further options.
