Question about Pentax PZ-70 QD 35mm SLR Camera
I have an old Pentax SF10 camera. I believe it can take double exposure photos but I can't figure out how to do this. The directions don't seem to be in the manual. Help!
If you press the film release button like you are going to rewind exposed film you may be able to activate the film advance lever to cock the camera so you can take another picture, and the film should stay on the first exposure allowing you to re - expose it. I would underexpose each image 1 F stop because.you are exposing the same film twice. Double exposures are always an iffy proposition and anything can happen. After the second exposure cocking the film advance should allow the film to advance once again. You might test this on the final pictures on a roll in case the camera won't start advancing the film after you try it. This way you won't blow a whole roll worth of pictures testing it.

Common fault due to perished rubber parts. Can be usually be repaired, but do not try to force the camera, that may cause damage which can not.
Go to http:/www.mypentax.com for information on how to service this yourself. The author can also advise by mail, and can service these cameras too.

SOURCE: Exposure needle not working
clean the battery cover and contact with a pencil eraser making sure the cap threads are also clean.
this is a fairly expensive repair if the meter or circuit board needs replacing ( no new parts are available ).
if the meter still does not work, and the K1000 is in good working order buy a inexpensive hand held light meter.

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.
