I have an old Pentax P30 (P3) which I occasionally use as a backup\nbody. The other day I noticed 2 things. Firstly that the battery had\ngone flat and secondly that the film winder would not wind. Are these\nrelated, or is there something wrong with my camera? Since it is a\nmanual camera, I assume that the winder problem and the flat battery\nare not related, but I would like to remain hopeful.. Does someone\nhere who has this body know if a flat battery prevents the winder from\nfunctioning?\n\nFailing this I guess I could just go and buy a battery and check for\nmyself :)\n\nThanks in advance\nRussell.
