Pentax 67 battery

some film negatives are gone or 1/4 are visible like shooting flash with over sync speed. I'm guessing that the weather cause this problem. Is there any way to prevent this problem?

Sounds like curtain travel time issues ( Both shutter curtains need to travel at the same speed or you can get uneven exposure or partially blank negatives). You need the appropriate test equipment to fix the problem which means it must be sent to your favorite Pentax repairman for a CLA.

I agree with pentaxus, you need an appropriate equipment to fix this.

Prevention is not the solution. I would suggest correction. Your shutter (and probably the entire camera) is in need of service.
