    I read your review for the Pentax K50: you need to repair it yourself, it is the solenoid which is faulty.
    Buy only the Made in Japan white Solenoid (to be found in the MZ50, two of them in the K100, ist, up to the K200 or ebay)
    Read my posts concering the repair, I have done it now 6 times, all work!

    Yip, it is a wonder that after 100 years, there are still something left in the desert town. Inside the house in the background there were some bottles etc still lying there. Good to meet someone from PE. I worked there in the 80's then EL and now Centurion. From Grahamstown. Cheers.

    About Me
    Been into photography for a loooong time. Started out with a box camera and a Baby Browning as a kid. My first 35mm camera was a Retinette, then graduated to a Voigtlander SLR and eventually a Pentax MZ50. I used a Panasonic KZ7 for about 3 years and when I outgrew it I bought my Pentax K-r.
    I am really passionate about the Eastern Cape and was a keen blogger. My blog was where I posted my photos and and write about whatever interests me. I now use Facebook as the medium for posting photos.
