Description for Pentax ME Super Potential Problems and Fixes for Pentax ME Super

Sticky Mirror Syndrome

This issue is caused by the degradation of the foam bumper at the top of the mirror box. When the mirror flips up, it can stick to the degraded foam. To fix it, you'll need to replace the foam bumper.

Stuck Shutter

This is often due to a lack of use. The lubricants in the shutter mechanism can become sticky over time. A common solution is to repeatedly fire the shutter at different speeds to work the lubricants around.

Light Meter Inaccuracy

The light meter may become inaccurate over time due to the aging of the CdS cell. Regular calibration is recommended to ensure accurate exposure readings.
