New to Pentax and need some repair assistance

Hi all, first time here and I am hoping someone in U.K. can help.
I have been given this nice little Pentax ME Super and I would like to use it. But sadly the shutter does not work.
Anyone with a good Pentax service contact? Information gratefully received.

Hi Peter, welcome to the forums from Hampshire. Beautiful little camera. I'd recommend Robin Gowing, who is Harrow Technical, the former UK Asahi Pentax agents. His website is Home - Pentax Camera Repair - Harrow Technical, where you will find email and phone contact information.

does the shutter not fire at all, or is it that you can't control the speeds? The ME super will need batteries to fire at anything other than 1/125 as the shutter is electronically controlled.

Also, make sure the exposure control dial around the shutter release button isn't set to 'L' as the shutter release will be locked in that position.
