Can I use the old lenses on a new camera


Your old Pentax lenses uses the Pentax K mount. The current Pentax digital SLRs all use the same K mount so the lenses will fit on them. You obviously won't get all the features available on new lenses, such as autofocus, but they should all work fine.

Can we repair/replace the lcd of old film cameras? I have an old pentax sfx camera and its lcd does not work.


I just checked my SF-1, and the mirror will go through four cycles while trying to load the film. You should be able to hear the mirror go up and down when you open the back and close it, then turn the camera on. I cannot get my SF-1 to keep the mirror up. Check to see if you have the mode set to bulb, and that the shutter release isn't stuck down - that will keep the mirror up until you release the shutter button or turn the camera off.

Also look carefully inside the lens mount on the side nearest the red dot. at the horizontal spot there is an internal button. It should be at the bottom of the track it runs in, about 1/3 of the way from the screw below the red dot to the lens release button. That moves up when the mirror goes up, and down when it comes down. If it is in the up position, you could perhaps try to gently move it downwards. It definitely moves up and down with the mirror on my SF-1.

I have an old Asahi Pentax, release lever and shutter are stuck.


The Pentax is a easy fix, maybe.. If you feel comfortable removing the bottom cover, then remove the 3 cross point screws. The battery, if installed will be loose. Looking at the bottom section of the camera, locate the tripod socket. On on side is the battery compartment, the other an L shaped lever. Under the L shaped lever is a brass plate with a slot in it. In that slot is another lever that has a spring going through the end eyelet. Move that lever toward the front of the camera until it latches on the L shaped lever above. Then try the release.

The first thing to try on the X700 is fresh batteries. Clean the battery cap and contacts with a pencil eraser.

Pentax ES2; do bayonet lens fit digital Pentax SLR?


Any Pentax K-mount lens will fit any Pentax DSLR. The DSLR will fire the shutter.  There is a menu setting (RTFM) which allows the use of older lenses, but you will lose some of the automation (again RTFM). Remember to allow that the effective focal length when using a "film" lens on a DSLR body goes up by 50%.
A standard 50mm lens becomes a 75mm equivalent, but stays a large aperture.

Pentax ME Super Shutter and Rapid Wind Button...


anmolag,

it could be the rubber bumper next to the fresnel lens has become sticky. very gently ( after removing lens ) try to bring mirror down without forcing it. it should release easily.
if not, rotate the select knob off auto. open film door and check that the shutter is fully deployed, shutters should not be overlapping.
remove screws from bottom cover and remove cover, keep camera up side down so that re-wind button stays put. there is a locking lever under the take up spool ( gray ) . with a pin move lever toward film door and bring advance lever fully to the right , then let it go so it returns quickly.
the shutter should have fired. if not the camera will need to be repaired. get an estimate first as there are no new parts available.

Pentax ME Super Shutter and Rapid Wind Button won't release


Common fault due to perished rubber parts. Can be usually be repaired, but do not try to force the camera, that may cause damage which can not.

Go to http:/www.mypentax.com for information on how to service this yourself. The author can also advise by mail, and can service these cameras too.

Film advance lever stuck


The shutter parts are most likely broken. That is usually the tell-tale sign of a broken camera, not advancing. Repairs for film cameras are very expensive and if parts are needed, it may be impossible for a 20+ year old camera. My suggestion is to find a replacement film camera system. Your Ricoh lenses will fit on a Pentax camera, but not work in Auto Mode. Prices of used Pentax cameras with built in motor drives are around $100. Check on line cameras stores. They have lots of use cameras/lense. A lens to use on that is another $75 or so. Only Nikon and Canon make new film cameras anymore. If you want an indestructable K-mount, find a Pentax K1000. Many lenses are available but no motor drive nor auto exposure on that model.
