Pentax Super Program Repairs Needed

I own a Pentax Super Program that is in need of repair but can't seem to find a repair person. It is an electrical issue where the shutter and f-stop is not displayed in the viewfinder or top LCD screen. The issue leaves the camera to operate at a constant a 1/125 shutter speed. Can you recommend a good repair person/shop who can resolve my issue?
