Question about Pentax K1000 35mm SLR Camera
Posted by Anonymous on
If you are talking about the rewinder, it should screw on. If that does not work you will need to remove the top plate. If you have some issues doing that it would be better to have it serviced. Besides, these are quite old cameras thus it may well need a CLA as well.

SOURCE: The quick winder not working
That camera has several rubber bumpers and gaskets in the mirror
mechanism that have a tendency to turn into sticky gooey sludge causing
the levers in the shutter and mirror mechanisms to get sluggish.
The latch that tells it to stop winding is not dropping into proper position when you wind the camera. Try holding the film advance lever all the way to the front when winding it to allow the latch to drop into place before letting the lever to return.
The only permanent solution is to completely disassemble the camera to clean out the old goop and replace them with newer neoprene fittings. My suggestion would be to find a replacement body since the repair is probably going to cost between $80 to $90 and you can probably find a good used body for less than that.

The clip spring broke jambing the advance gear. by forcing, the tab on the advance shaft broke.
take or send your camera to a camera repair shop for an estimate cost to repair.
there are no new parts for this model so the repairs could be expensive.
there should be no cost for an estimate.

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.
