    Hi everyone, I have a question.

    Either my Pentax ME Super, has a problem or I don't know how to use it.


    The exposure mode dial won't budge.

    Did you press the little white button on it?

    It could be that there is a mechanical problem with the button. I have one ME that has a stuck button. I suspect that a small pin that is either under the button or part of the button has snapped off.
