No image through view finder

Take the lens off, is the mirror stuck up? If it is then thats why you cant see through the view finder. It should come down after you take a photo.You can try to gently push the mirror down. This is caused by the mirror box warping due to heat or being dropped. Try it a few times and if it still sticks, more expensive to get fixed than the camera is worth so look for a 'new' camera on ebay. do not spray anything like CRC or WD40 into it, makes things worse.

My Pentax ME Super dropped. I no longer can see out of t?e view finder. I pray it ios not damaged. What can do?

The 'drop' may have caused the shutter to engage. If so, pull the two batteries from the bottom compartment and wait a few minutes to see if the shutter opens.
You may also operate the camera manually in the x125 position without batteries.
This may also be a good time to go Digital! ... I put my ME Super away and purchased the Pentax K110D for less than $200. All of my Pentax lenses work just fine, and it is ver cost effective. Please consider.
If you need more info, please comment (I am not a camera dealer).

Can't see anything through the view finder, i've

The mirror in the lens throat has locked in the up position. Mirror lockup can usually be cured by replacing the batteries.

Light metre not working

clean the battery cap and contacts with a pencil eraser including the cap threads. rotate the select knobs a few times to clean the internal contacts.
there are no new parts available for this model Pentax, so any repairs with good used parts could be expensive.

Pentax K100 Super D clicks, but no pictures.

Hate to say it, but it's dead. My Pentax K100 D Super did the same thing. Took it to the local camera shop. They scratched their heads and sent the body to Pentax. The reply that came back was that the circuit board was completely fried and it would cost more to fix than it would to buy a new body.

I was out of luck because the warranty was out (had it a year and a half), but with yours being less than a year, you should be able to get a new body without having to shell out $$$.


The camcorder fell ,shows only black and white inthe view finder

What has happened is that one of your cabels has come disconnected in the accent. A solder job would fix this, but it is likely with the cost of todays cameras for the price of the repair, you should go out and buy a new camera instead. Super V is a good looking picture but can't compare to the High Def cameras that are out today. You will be very happy with the results of taping resolution from one of these. Infact, there are some great HD cameras that record directly to Hard Drive, thus saving you on tape costs for the rest of your life. So, one could say that the camera eventually pays for itself since you won't ever have to buy tapes for it! (Make sure that the HD conversion from camera to your computer is compatiable and there are no issues with it... Do a google search on your new model before you buy it, as some have issues with transfers to different Operating systems).
