Is Garry's Camera Repair still in business? I

I've called twice to send him my Spotmatic for a CLA and have not received a response. Do you know of another good place that services Pentax?

Yes, they are still in business. One or two people have just gotten cameras back from Garry's and were quite satisfied with their work.

Eric Hendrickson is an alternative. He is sometimes slow to respond so be patient. In the meantime try Garry's again.


There is also Advance Camera in Oregon.

I've had Garry clean my DSLRs, he did a great job. It was a big job cleaning my K5, it was pretty dirty - probably pollen on the sensor.
