Pentax ME -- Mirror Stuck ... - Photography

.... Bought this from Ebay ... it worked for a while, then the film advance began skipping frames. Finally the mirror stuck in the up position. Fresh batteries didn't help. Any ideas out there? Thanks ... -- Message posted via http://www.photokb.com...

    You'll probably want to take your question to a group like
    alt.photography or rec.photo.equipment.35mm before the usenet cops
    string you up. This is a digital group and some folks get downright
    testy about that sort of thing.

    It's proberbly repairable, though economically is another matter. It is
    after all a 20 year old camera. Still it'd make a nice
    paperweight/doorstop/shelf ornament.

    Did those Pentax's have cheap plastic gears like the K-1000?
    Should have bought an Olympus OM-1 used.

    Common problem in older Pentax cameras. Small pin that spins during
    shutter release and is wound up during film advance has grease at the
    ends that gets old and sticky. A camera repair place with know the
    problem and be able to fix it.
