K1000 weird light leak??

  1. I'm not sure if it's seal leak or curtain leak.
    any suggestion? 1502802184383.jpg
  2. It's more likely to come from the front. Leaks from light seals tend to have an orange colour due to passing through the film base first. You should be able to see something when operating the shutter while looking from the open film door towards a bright light, with the lens removed.

    Thank you for your suggestion.
    I'll check the curtains and mirror seals first.
