    Exposure knob stuck on 35mm Pentax ME Super?

    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?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    You Don't know how to use it, the exposure is controlled by two white buttons one for up and one for down, here's the manual http://www.butkus.org/chinon/pentax/...x_me_super.htm

    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.

    But the OP is referring to the exposure mode dial not moving.
