Question about Pentax K1000 35mm SLR Camera
My Pentex k1000 rewind knob unscrewed and the shaft that it screws onto has fallen inside my camera. how do i get it out without damaging the camera if i cant open the back the way i normally would?
First make a small hook on the end of a straightened paper clip. insert the hook and pull up rotating the hook as you pull up. being careful not to bend the spring near the hole. once the back door is opened check the rewind shaft, there should be a beveled edge on the collar of the shaft. rotate the shaft while pushing up. if no beveled edge on the shaft use the paper clip to push the spring out of the way while inserting the shaft. if it still will not return file a bevel on the collar of the shaft. I am assuming there is no film in the camera as the canister will prevent the shaft from falling in.
