Can we repair/replace the lcd of old film cameras? I have an old pentax sfx camera and its lcd does not work.
I just checked my SF-1, and the mirror will go through four cycles while
trying to load the film. You should be able to hear the mirror go up
and down when you open the back and close it, then turn the camera on. I
cannot get my SF-1 to keep the mirror up. Check to see if you have the
mode set to bulb, and that the shutter release isn't stuck down - that
will keep the mirror up until you release the shutter button or turn the
Also look carefully inside the lens mount on the side nearest the red
dot. at the horizontal spot there is an internal button. It should be at
the bottom of the track it runs in, about 1/3 of the way from the screw
below the red dot to the lens release button. That moves up when the
mirror goes up, and down when it comes down. If it is in the up
position, you could perhaps try to gently move it downwards. It
definitely moves up and down with the mirror on my SF-1.
