Need Pentax ME Super winder contacts.

Discussion in 'Pentax' started by Chris Lindgren, Nov 30, 2004.

  1. Does anyone know of a source for the winder contacts strip located
    under the bottom cover on the rewind side of the ME Super? One of my
    contacts is coroted and makes intermittant contact with my winder.

    I suppose I could buy a junker and strip it.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've never owned a Pentax, but know someone who has medium format Pentax
    kit. He was surprised how reasonable *Pentax* were at sorting out his
    old Pentax. He had previously tried a 3rd party company, who said it was
    too old and the parts were unavailable. You might try getting Pentax to
    repair it - they did him a free estimate, but this was some time back
    and it was medium format.

  3. Probably the best is to get a broken one and move it over.
    The old bodies are cheap enough.
    Inquire on the list at http://www.pdml.net and you might find a broken
    one available.

    The US Pentax web site has a listing of the models that are no longer
    serviced, and the ME Super is on that list. Sending the camera to
    Pentax will do no good.

    If the original poster feels that he can handle the repair himself,
    there are often inoperative bodies on eBay. You can also find cheap
    bodies in the "As-Is" section at KEH (http://www.keh.com/). Click on the
    "New and Used Equip." link on the main page, then click on the
    "AS-IS" link under Miscellaneous, then click on Bodies under Cameras.
    They have several ME-Supers with various problems listed, at prices
    ranging from $25 to $45.

    Send me an email. I'm sure I have those bits in my parts bin somewhere.
