This is not a simple repair - if the wind lever is "ratcheting", parts will have to be replaced. If the wind lever is "free-wheeling", there might be no film in the camera, or the counter isn't working ( it has to be at #1 or above to cock the shutter ). It's a job for a repair shop.

I have a pentax 67 camera and the film advance lever is jammed. it will not advance without putting undo pressure on it which i am not willing to do. i have read many forums that have said this is not an...

Try pressing the film release button on the underside of the camera. This should unstick the advance roller.
If possible, replace the watch battery for your camera (inserted in the bottom, right by the teeny black button I mentioned above).
Change your exposure setting to Bulb exposure and back.
If all else fails, take your camera into the darkroom (or at least a completely light-insulated closet, bathroom, etc.), and pop open the back and recover your film. Hopefully you won't have too much wasted film on your hands.
Good on you, however, for not forcing the lever. Nothing good will come of that.

AE-1 When I advance the film the winder does not spin.

It is probably that the film in the canister is advancing and once it takes up all the slack in the film canister the film tightens and moves the spindle which then moves the winder.

You probably need to take the camera in for repair. It sounds like the film transport is not connected to the shutter/mirror cage ***'y.

Film winder is loose and meter is not accurate.

It is absolutely OK, my dad too has one (not older than urs). make it tighter, but u need some screws drivers (specially for cameras). Open the camera and tighten the screw holding the winder arm. Try this only if u have experience otherwise u may end up with a scramble of camera. About the F-Stop, i have no idea why this is so... might be the technology is gone too advanced compared to the 1978.

Film advance slipping?

This has happened with my pentax super program. All that was wrong is the the spool/winder was dirty. It needed to be cleaned. You open up the back of the camera. Stick something such as a small screw driver, just something to stop the film winder from turning. Now turn the top of the winder off while keeping the bottom part in place. Be very careful not to close the back of the camera while you do this. Once you have it out give it a clean with a soft cloth and then put it back in. I found it tricky to align it and get it back through the whole. But, that's me. After that it worked perfectly. Until the next time in a year or so it needed to be cleaned again. Hope this helps.
