Question about Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR Camera
I love this camera, and ive got it loaded to the max---- but the lazer type cell batteries go dead overnight ! i dont have a manual for it yet ? but ive ordered one. ive put 10 batteries in this camera--- help ! firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello davidpritchie, As I recall, this was Pentax's way of mating electronics with mechanical cameras and the success rate was quite good. The only problem with the Pentax Super Program was the rather complex electronic circuit board. Your canera could have a short, bad condensers, bad on-off switch, etc. You would need to do a circuit check from batteries to every electronic component using battery power. Wow - really expensive and time-consuming = complete stripdown and repair. The camera is over approximately 30 years old making it a classic. It is no longer in production meaning parts need to be cannabalized from another old non-working Pentax Super Program. The cost of repair would exceed the value of the camera. Look for another good used model or move on to a Pentax DSLR (digital SLR) camera as your tool. Sorry I couldn't give you a better answer on how to fix your problem.
