Question about Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR Camera
I have a Pentax ME that I purchased on Ebay a few years ago. It has been working great, but today I noticed something odd. The shutter is prematurely opening whenever I try to advance the film. The only time it doesn't open is when I pull back the advance lever very slowly (and also when I put it in lock "L" mode). What is causing this to happen?

the shutter locking lever is sticking. time for a clean, lube & adjust.
i would take, or send this fine rugged camera to a reputable camera repair shop, have an estimate for a cla.
This model pentax is made with very little plastic and will last a long time with an occasional cla.
