  1. I have a 26 year old Pentax MX that needs to have the light seals and
    the mirror damper replaced. verything else seems to work fine but at
    this age I suppose it could use Cleaning , lubrication and adjusting
    also. Does anyone have a suggestion as to who is a good repair shop to
    send it to. It was a Christmas present from my wife and means alot to
    me. I want to get it done right the first time. Thanks
     
  2. Where are you located?

    I had mine serviced in Atlanta GA by Camera Repair Japan (CRJ) in Norcross, just off Jimmy Carter Blvd. Tel: (770) 849-0555 in 1999 or 2000.
     
  3. In the UK Harrow Technical. (In the old Pentax building in Harrow). Very good service, sensible charges. They have plenty of work.
     
  4. If by any chance you reside in Sydney, try Camera Service Centre. I had my Pentax ME fully serviced, including light seal and mirror buffer replacement, last month and am very pleased with the result.
     
  5. From dealings with local camera repairmen,this should be a straightforward and easy to find service.
    <BR>i.e-most camera repair shops should have no trouble doing it right...anbd indeed most seem to like working on these old things
