Good USA repairer for Pentax P&S film cameras?

I have a broken Pentax Espio Mini (UC-1) plus a spare parts donor camera.
Can anyone recommend a good USA repairer for Pentax P&S film cameras?

TIA,
Chris

This is just a shot, but send Eric Hendrickson at pentax27@aol.com an email and explain your problem. I have no personal interest in this.
Good luck

I received an email reply from Essex; they don't repair this model.
Any other ideas?

Pentax recommended them, and I have had good experiences buying from KEH.
Do they have their own repair department or is everything sent to subcontractors?

I have not use KEH for repairing myself . Since they are such a big store , around for quite a while , they might have in-store specialists . Give them a call . Ain't hurt nothing

They quoted me $90 as the basic charge for the repair of this model.
