35mm help

I have a Pentax K1000. Have had it about 18 years.

Some recent photos came back with an red/orange line down the center of the photo, fading to the left.

Is this a sticky shutter or what?

Can the photo/negative be fixed?

You know when I first read your post I was thinking the back of your camera was leaking. I replaced a back on a Pentax ME Super and one on a K1000. After seeing the shot I don't think that is it, something is leaking light for sure, shutter I don't know. When looking for a leak at the shutter, remove or open the back and begin looking. Sometimes it helps to shine a flashlight into the lens opening and also you can operate the shutter a time or three to see if abnormalities are revealed by the light.

Are you in the Twin Cities? If you are I would take the camera and a copy of the photo to National Camera or West Photo and see what their opinion is. Good luck and let us know what you find.

Just a few minutes in Photoshop, if you spent the time it could be fixed.

Thanks Dbl.

I thought the shutter might be sticking or something similar. This is the worst one of the bunch from a trip to Mt. Rushmore last year. Interesting rocks at the viewing area, tried some shots of the boys.
