Eric Hendrickson Time Off Until 2018
Hold off on new repair orders for a bit, please.
By K David in Photo Industry News on Oct 22, 2017
A PSA from Pentax Forums: Eric Hendrickson, well-known Pentax repairman in the US, is pausing new orders for a few months. He is not retiring, just clearing out backlog.
A bit more than two years ago, Pentax Forums traveled to Knoxville, Tennessee, to interview Eric Hendrickson about camera repair. Eric is the most-well-known Pentax repairman working today. He formerly ran the Honeywell Pentax repair shop outside of Chicago, and repairs a lot of cameras and lenses for Pentax Forums members at reasonable prices. In addition to CLAing and fixing legacy bodies, Eric can also service many modern lenses, such as FA Limiteds.
Our users have done well keeping Eric busy, and he's taking a couple months off of new work. Eric asked us to help spread the word that, until 2018, he's closing the roll-top desk to new repairs. This will give Eric a chance to work through the significant backlog he has and take some much-needed R&R.

Eric is not retiring. He's not hanging up the screwdriver set. Just hold off on sending Eric new repair orders for a little while so he can get all caught up!
For help with anything related to repairs, please post in our repairs and warranty service forum, and check the sticky threads for alternate repair facilities.
