Yes. You need to find a working example of either a Winder ME or a Winder MEII. The former has 1.5 frames per second and the latter runs to 2.5 fps but a well-maintained ME Super will be fine with either of them and a battered and heavily used example will be less stressed by the earlier version.

Yes, with limitations. The lenses will fit on any Pentax (now Ricoh) digital SLR. You may lose autofocus and/or auto exposure metering.

Pentax ME super advance film doesn't get caught

This is a known fault with this retro model, I'm afraid - over time, the plastic gears get worn, and eventually fail. Solutions are mentioned on the Pentax Forums.

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.

Plastic shutter button broke. Can release shutter by pushing in the middle but button is gone includeing screw int piece for shutter release. Is this an easy fix?

The only easy fix is to glue with a super glue with the broken part or parts. If this is lost then you need to fabricate a similar type knob to be glued into the slot making sure that glue does no overflow and get the whole shaft stuck.
other wise the original can be sourced or replaced from a worn out/discarded camera or consult the Pentax service for estimation.. to restore it originally.

Pentax me super can not advance the film advance

if the re-wind button is not stuck in, then the tab on the advance shaft is broken off. this small piece of metal will jamb the gears eventually.
take or send your camera to a repair shop for a cost estimate before repair as there are no new parts available for this model .

Film won't advance

Pentax ME Super was one of my favorite camera, small and clean shutter release. But it has been about 25 years since it was manufactured. They happen to use rubber break within shutter unit and as any rubbers, it started to deteriorate and melt between the shutter-blades. This prevents the complete cycle of the shutter and jams the winding. You may be able to unjam the winding but eventually you have to overhaul the shutter unit. Overhaul charge is around $100 in US repair market. -James

Hi could you answer a question for me about the pentax mv

The Pentax MV has a similar body and uses the same lenses as the Pentax ME Super, but it is a fully "Auto Exposure" camera. It does not have manual override or shutter-priority modes. It is a good camera to take pictures, but not if you want to have full manual / creative control over the camera.

Take care & Happy Imaging!

Light meter

Yes, the Pentax ME Super has a built-in light meter. It is used by the ME Super in order to determine the correct exposure settings when the camera is used in the "A" (Autoexposure) & "AV" (Aperture-priority) exposure modes.

I don't mean to insult you, but have you tried new batteries?

Sometimes the meter fails when the batteries don't have enough juice.

Take care & Happy Imaging!

Pentax Super ME

Yes, the ME super has an electronic shutter that works in conjunction with the LEDs. Purchase some fresh S76 button cells, A76 will work, but the will not last as long. Make sure the battery cover is corrosion free and install the batteries so both cells face positive toward the cover.
