HD Pentax-DA 18-50mm F4-5.6 DC WR RE parts

After sitting down with a screwdriver, tweezers and some patience I got to the bottom of my HD Pentax-DA 18-50mm F4-5.6 DC WR RE lens that would not focus on anything other than 18mm. I have a broken ribbon cable on my hands now and a search for a replacement. Can anyone point me to a replacement part? It was situated around the side of the lens body.

Thanks

Lisa

Ricoh does not sell parts to consumers. You might be able to get your local authorized repair center to order you one. But most likely they will just tell you it has to be sent in for repair. I do not think I can remember anyone saying they were able to obtain parts for a current product.

I assume the lens was out of warranty?

Oh yes, way way way out of warranty. I guess I have to weight up sending for repair v sell for parts & upgrade.

Ugh, that's a real shame. The HD 18-50 has a reputation as a good performer.
