Lens Repair

Eric does top notch work on lenses; even lenses that aren't Pentax. Eric does great work at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended!

Eric's website is here:

Always email or call him first for a quote.

Many of us here owe a great debt to expert repairman Eric Hendickson, who keeps our Pentax cameras humming along.

Eric has repaired/CLA'ed most of my Pentax cameras past and present, currently including LX, K2, KX, KM and MX bodies.
I'm planning to send him two more recent acquisitions, a DOA MZ-3 and another KX, this one with a shutter problem.

What have you had repaired by Eric Hendrickson?

Chris

Eric has repaired my 67 and my 45mm and 90mm lenses for that camera.
He has also done CLA's and repairs on my MX, SV & Super Tak 55/1.8, and ME.
Every time has been great, fast, and honest service. His prices are great, I got a quote for a CLA from a camera shop for a Nikkormat EL for $150.
I highly recommend him.

CLA and seals on my LX and MX. Both are working very well.

Anyone looking to purchase an LX should bear in mind that the CLA/seal on this camera is pricey and factor that in to the purchase.

He's done 4 LX's for me - CLAs and minor repairs. Also, 2 other cameras - but I don't remember what they were.

All were done well and quickly - HIGHLY recommended!!!

Thumbs Up

I've only sent one camera to Eric, an circa 1980 K1000 for CLA and minor repairs. I'm amazed to see how many people are sending so many cameras his way. He must be very busy!

He exceeded my expectations. Of course the CLA and repairs were perfect. The the cosmetic cleaning he gave the K1000 is amazing; it came back positively sparkling. The camera is in better shape now than it's been in a decade or more.

He says he treats the cameras like they were his own, and I believe it. Very pleasant to do business with, too.

I'm currently running a test roll through a new-to-me MX. If it has any issues, you better believe I know where I'm sending it!

Just got my SV back today. 10 days, and from what I can tell so far, better than new!

HaHa - yes, he posted me here when I remarked on the fact that I am the current owner of said mount.

He asked for an opportunity to work on the lens.

For the first time in my life I had to send money to the Federal Government at tax time - and Missouri hasn't seen fit to send me their refund yet.

That entire exchange of money has been so depressing that I haven't gotten to sending it off.

Hopefully my work isn't seen as too shoddy by the in-house expert. I never claimed for it to be beautiful, but it seemed to be strong enough for me to trust it to pass on. I hope you've gotten some use out of the lens.
