Pentax 67II service in Europe?

I have read somewhere that the 67II is not serviceabile due to lack of electronic spare parts... is this true?
Does anybody know of a lab in Europe able to service the 67II?

Thanks!

Since the 67II is no longer in production (was stopped being made around 7+ years ago), there's really not going to be any labs that will repair it due not having any parts to do any repairs in the first place.
You'll most likely have to send it to Eric Henderson (Home) or someone who is able to get the parts to do the repairs.

Might be worth contacting some of the film-oriented repair shops listed here:

The owner of Reparatur PENTAX Analog Kameras - KAMERAZEIT ist offizieller PENTAX Servicepartner is a very helpful person. I would give him a call.

It's not a camera made anymore so if there is a serious fault in the electronics, the course taken is either submit it for disassembly and repair as best as possible or repair with cannibalised parts from another, like-camera. This is the same for all older MF cameras (especially the Pentax 6x7 / 67 bodies and TTL finders). I have known the repair cost to actually exceed the net worth of the camera after repairs, so it requires some consideration.

When I got my 67II a few years ago (around the time Ricoh bought Pentax) , the Japanese seller indicated Pentax in Japan would/could still service it.
Not sure if this is still true, best email them.

Note I believe the 67II is one of the film cameras that Eric does not work on.
