"Stewart", it is necessary that you change your display name to your First and Last name, as you agreed to do in the terms policy when becoming a member. You can do so in "My Controls".

Those "lines" are scratches on the film that the K3 did. As thefilm passes through, emulsion buildups or flaws in design do that to the film in such low-quality cameras. I know for mine it always scratches on the left side.

Check the gate after you run a roll, if you see emulsion building up, you can see where the prob is. Maybe try to run a dummy/fogged roll (with emulsion of course) and see what happens. Once you find the place you can try to GENTLY file it ans fill with a tinny bit of epoxy. But off course you can also ruin the camera.

It also looks like there may be some scratching on the projection lens b/c some of the lines don't move as in they don't just stay in the same place, they really don't move. I'm assuming this is projected footage.

Olex Kalynychenko would know, he's the resident russian camera expert and i think he may actually do repairs on the K3 you can search the forum for his name and contact him or this is his website http://www.geocities.../russiancamera/ he'll know what you should do.
