Question about Pentax Photography

1 Answer

I have a pentax zx-60 that is showing an error message o_ _ _ _ with an E on top of that. I'm not sure what it means or how to fix it. I tried reloading the film and it doesn't seem to advance.

I think the 'o____' is intended as a pictorial representation of a roll of 35mm film, the 'E' signifying an error in loading it. Not used this particular Pentax model myself, but some of them have a slot in the take-up spool where the 'tongue' of the film should be inserted - is that the case with yours ?

This model has a gear train from the motor to the advance sprocket. The gears are plastic and prone to strip. Try E-Bay for a reasonable replacement and keep this one for parts. There are no new parts available.

Others here have suggested the problem lays with the plastic gear on the advancing motor beside the mirror.

This might cost $100 or so...?

I have a pentax zx-60 and i am taing a photo class how do i set the camera on maual but still be able to change the aperture

Use the exposure mode to metered manual mode using the [mode] button until the [M] is selected on the far right of the LCD screen.
The [M} is to the right of the [Tv] and [Av] selections.

Also, there is a switch on the camera body where the lens is attached... switch from AF to MF (UP position) (AutoFocus to ManualFocus).

The meter inthe viewfinder will continue to work so that tou can use the built-in meter to assist in your manual configfuration.

Good Luck! Photography is a great hobby and profession!
