Winder button is extremely tight

Take top cover off and look in the area of frame counter ( right hand side ) and underneeth the main transport drive ( under the frame counter ) for a short piesce of metal ( 3 mm long ) that may be wedged in or between the gears of the drive. The piesce breaking off and falling into the drive is a common problem with MEs and ME supers. The broken off piece does not have to be replaced ( no vital role ) just assamble the camera and it will work fine.

Pentax ME

A simple fix might be to borrow a page from movie cameramen. Tape it shut with some black hockey tape. I was considering doing this eventhough my ME Super works fine. If you think that looks too getto, then it sounds like a service repair shop is the other answer.

ME dillemma

Also, I just tried the delayed picture-taking lever, ??????? you mean self timer. if you have used self timer then unless the cycle is completed the camera will stuck in the middle, with the mirror locked up. Try releasing the self timer by moving the lever manually. if nothing major defect is theirin the self timer it will release by doing this.

Hi there, I just got myself a K1000 Pentax camera, as a gift. I'm not a collector nor photographer, I just wanted to know more about this camera its value and if one can just keep it as a collectors item. I noticed its different from all the ones I've seen so far, it has no sahai LOGO like the others.. It is fairly new... Kindly advise accordingly.

You have yourself a camera with pedigree and it would be a shame not to put a few rolls of film through it before you decide whether to continue to use it, store it as a collectible or sell it on. Using a manual film camera is interesting and rewarding and can be fun - it is an experience no one should miss. Like learning to drive, at first there seems too many things to think of but with the help of a little reading most people soon master the basics. There is plenty of information online - see link below... https://www.google.com/search?q=K1000+Pentax+camera&rlz=1C1CAFB_enGB673GB676&oq=K1000+Pentax+camera&aqs=chrome..69i57&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 Have fun!

Why don't they just download what you ask? they give all but what you ask. I want the simple operating instrusions for Pentax SLR camera

Who, exactly, are 'they' ? There are many models of Pentax SLR camera, both film and digital, and there is a different manual pertaining to the care and operation of each of these. If you go to the Pentax Service Centre relevant to your place of residence, all the available manuals will probably be there. If the one that you require is not available, you may find it by doing a Google search for the make and model, followed by the word Manual.

Flash on all time in auto

Please, which camera model? Are we talking about the external flash or one built in? If it is built in the camera may think there is not enough light thus setting the flash to fire. That is what auto does, it takes all the decisions away from the camera operator.

I have a pentax zx-60 that is showing an error message o_ _ _ _ with an E on top of that. I'm not sure what it means or how to fix it. I tried reloading the film and it doesn't seem to advance.

I think the 'o____' is intended as a pictorial representation of a roll of 35mm film, the 'E' signifying an error in loading it. Not used this particular Pentax model myself, but some of them have a slot in the take-up spool where the 'tongue' of the film should be inserted - is that the case with yours ?

Nikon d40x exposure problem

I assume that this is a film camera that has light meter.It could be that the camera is set to a different film sensitivity than the actual film.For example, the film is 400 ASA but the camera is set to 100 ASA.The sensitivity rating of the film is written on the film box and on the film cartridge. Make sure you set the film ASA number on the camera too.
