Topic: Asahi Pentax film advance lever stuck
The film advance lever on my Asahi Pentax S1a has just seized. I tripped the shutter and now the lever won't advance...it's stuck and won't move at all. I've taken off the bottom cover and can't see anything broken there, but I don't know anything about camera mechanics. I am quite handy though, so I could attempt any repair someone might suggest.
I guess the problem is that the advance lever lock that is engaged while the shutter is cocked did not disengage after the shutter fired. Is there some way of resetting it?
