SOURCE: Pentax ME super dirty mirror

Check out the camera repair site at mypentax.com. Cleaning a mirror safely is covered there. Essentially it is a cotton bud & alcohol thing, but there is a right way and a wrong way to do this.

Ricoh kr 5 super ii mirror

There are some wide angle lenses that will hit the mirror and not allow it to move correctly. Wide angle lenses go further back on the film plane, so they can't be used with that camera. Try a Pentax.

I would like to use my Sigma 600 Mirror lense on Nikon M80 digital camara body lense was used on a Pentax Super A camara before can it fit

Sorry, no. If it fit onto a Pentax camera then the lens has a Pentax mount. The Nikon (I assume you mean the D80 digital camera, or perhaps the N80 film camera) has a Nikon mount. Since the Nikon mount has a deeper flange distance than the Pentax mount, there are no adapters available to allow you to fit a Pentax-mount lens onto a Nikon camera.

Mirror is locked open

Unless you have experience repairing cameras, this is not a DIY fix. Take your camera to a reputable camera shop and have a trained professional look at it.

My Pentax KX (analog) wont show apperture in viewfinder. Maybe something block the apperture window. What should i do?

Hi,
There is a tiny mirror to reflect the f stops to the view finder.
Either this tiny mirror fell off or the needs adjustment.
You have to take out the top cover to have the access to this tiny mirror.

Is my ME Super toast?

It doesn't need batteries to shoot. You can use it on manual without batteries, but the exposure meter won't work (if you know what you're doing you can go by). But the stuck mirror should be fixed. It could be just plain dirty/rusty/bent etc.
The advance lever might be gone since it won't 'click'. A professional shop can fix it, but the one you tried doesn't sound very professional...

Pentax ME Super Shutter and Rapid Wind Button...

anmolag,

it could be the rubber bumper next to the fresnel lens has become sticky. very gently ( after removing lens ) try to bring mirror down without forcing it. it should release easily.
if not, rotate the select knob off auto. open film door and check that the shutter is fully deployed, shutters should not be overlapping.
remove screws from bottom cover and remove cover, keep camera up side down so that re-wind button stays put. there is a locking lever under the take up spool ( gray ) . with a pin move lever toward film door and bring advance lever fully to the right , then let it go so it returns quickly.
the shutter should have fired. if not the camera will need to be repaired. get an estimate first as there are no new parts available.

Pentax ME super dirty mirror

Don't even think about cleaning the mirror in your SLR. For smudges and marks that can't be blown away with a handheld blower, you really need to have it cleaned by a repair shop. Most technicians clean mirrors with a special viscous fluid specially formulated to protect the fragile surface of the mirrors. Definitely do not attempt it with a standard lens cleaning solution or cloth as you could cause irreparable damage.

Keep in mind that this will not require disassembly of the camera, so the charge should be nominal
