Question about Pentax K1000 35mm SLR Camera
Given the age of the camera and the fact that it hasn't been used for a while, it's quite likely the lubricants have dried up, causing the mechanical parts to stick. I'd suggest taking it in to a reputable camera shop for a CLA (Clean-Lube-Adjust), the camera equivalent of tuning up your car.
