If you look through the view finder and it is black, the mirror is hanged up and the shutter is jammed. The mirror is still there.

I have a Pentax k1000, and was given a few vivitar and olypus lenses. They do not fit the camera. What can I do?????


Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of mounts. Lenses with the Pentax K-mount can be used on the K1000, lenses with other mounts can not.

Olympus lenses will not mount onto a Pentax camera.

You can sell the lenses, give them to someone with the appropriate camera(s), or use them as paperweights.

On my pentax k1000 the black fuzz looking stuff


That's the mirror bumper, it softens the blow and cuts the noise as the mirror flips up.

Carefully remove it and then replace it with a new one. You can get it as part of a foam light seal repair kit for your camera; this also ensures that the sticky black goo which used to be foam and which prevents light from getting past the edges of the camera back gets replaced. Light seal kits are very cheap, and if you buy a pre-cut version then it makes a fiddly job a bit easier and potentially less messy. They're widely available on sites like ebay, just search for "k1000 light seals" and check that the kit includes a mirror bumper/buffer.

If you don't get it repaired the fuzz will get everywhere and can also get onto the film surface causing white spots on your photos or black spots on negatives/slides. The debris can also get into your lenses so remove it asap. Gooey foam light seals are even worse as it's both corrosive and abrasive (due to the grit it attracts) and gradually migrates to gum up the works. It can also result in light fogging on your photos (usually seen as red streaks from the top or bottom of the picture). Modern foam seals do not decompose like the old ones did.

I hope that I've helped you, please take a moment to rate my answer.

Pentex k1000 rewind knob unscrewed, shaft fell inside camera


first make a small hook on the end of a straightened paper clip. insert the hook and pull up rotating the hook as you pull up. being careful not to bend the spring near the hole. once the back door is opened check the rewind shaft, there should be a beveled edge on the collar of the shaft. rotate the shaft while pushing up. if no beveled edge on the shaft use the paper clip to push the spring out of the way while inserting the shaft. if it still will not return file a bevel on the collar of the shaft. I am assuming there is no film in the camera as the canister will prevent the shaft from falling in.

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.
