[SOLD] Pentax KX and K1000

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax KX and K1000

Asking Price
20USD for the K1000.

Item Description
1. KX
Canceled.


2. K1000
Bought this camera as claimed in excellent working condition from eBay. But the meter was dead when it reached me. I put in battery, the metering needle stays at the middle no matter how the light condition changes. Other than that, everything else seems working fine. Since it's a cheap camera, don't bother returning it to the seller (actually I bought the camera for the lens attached, don't really care too much about it anyway).

I didn't bother testing it w/ film 'cause I'm not really interested in a K1000 camera. So I'm selling it as is. You can either send it for repair or just use it as is (with the help of some other light meter, or just use the Sunny 16 Rule). The camera is very clean inside and out, there is no ding or dent anywhere on the body, only some light scratches here and there.

K1000 is one of the classic film cameras by Pentax, it's one of the highly recommended manual film cameras for beginners. You can find more detailed info about this camera here:

Take the bottom plate off the KX and start poking around with a screwdriver. If the film advance lever is stuck, give it a gentle push and you'll probably see what's sticking. It might be as simple as a lever or gear that's off track.

this is exactly the problem I envisioned. its common with spotmatics and takes only seconds to fix. im not sure how similar the KX is to the spotmatic regarding the mechanics but I imagine this will be of help.

Thanks for the link.

Tried a bit more, seems the problem has been solved Now the KX camera works! I'll cancel the sale of the KX camera sale for now, but the K1000 is still up for grab.

$20 for the K1000 plus shipping. Anyone? The camera still looks great, besides the dead meter, it's working great too.
