Viewfinder shows a inkstain
Check/clean the mirror first, then the viewfinder and the lense. If the stain doesn't show on pictures, it's probably just in the mirror or the viewfinder and doesn't affect the pictures.

PENTAX K1000 CAMERA EXPOSURE METER IS NOT WORKING
Clean the battery cap and contacts with a pencil eraser including the cap threads.
there are no new parts available for this model Pentax, so a good used part repair could be expensive.
An inexpensive hand held light meter might be the way to go if the cleaning did not work, and the camera is otherwise working good.

HI i just got a pentax winder me and i put new
the winder should stop when the camera counter is on # 1. take the winder off the camera and clean the winder contacts on the bottom of the camera with a pencil eraser. also be sure that the winder is coupling to the advance shaft correctly. not much else you can do as there are no new parts available for this winder.

Pentax K1000 rewinding knob restore
There is a spring in the way. straighten a paper clip and from the top of the camera push it out of the way while you gently push the shaft up. rotating the shaft helps.
or you could file a little of the shaft collar on an angle ( if it's not there ) then rotate the shaft while gently pushing up. don't bend the spring.
