Used 105-R

I just bought a used 105-R, my goal is to restore it to it's original working order. Where can I find an instruction manual? What damage should I look for?

Welcome!

Looks like the manual can be found online (I just put the camera into Google) and found a link to a manual at Pentax 105R Manuals, Support and Troubleshooting - IQZoom Digital Cameras

Sorry, I'm not the expert you need for that question.

We've had one of these for nearly 20 years...a RIPPER little camera..we've had ours repaired a couple of times, but the electronic stuff inside is now getting hard to find.
What happens is that there's a printed circuit "board" inside which flexes as the zoom goes in & out. Eventually this printed circuit will crack....then ya've gotta replace it.....if ya can find one.
Cheers, Pickles.
