Where can I get my camera fixed?

I have a Pentax K1000 with a stuck light meter and the mechanics to open the back are stuck or broken. My 50mm lens inner body is also falling out of the lens. I know that Pentax no longer repairs its old SLR cameras, and I was wondering if anyone knows of a reputable company that fixes K1000s and can vouch for their expertise and authenticity.

Definitely not in this forum. This should go in the film section

Throw it in the recycle bin. It would be a lot cheaper to get another one in working condition.
