Can A3000 Focusing screen be used in Super Program?

Hello All, I'm new here and have enjoyed much of the discussion. My question is if an A3000 focusing screen can be used in a Super Program because it is the cheapest parts body I might find in the A series, and I would really like to get the Super Program going but the screen is DESTROYED! If not what other screens are compatible?
Thanks!

Welcome to the forum.

I would email Eric, he will know:

He can also CLA your camera as well.

Thanks, I actually did, but only to see if he had any screens to sell (he didn't). Didn't ask him if the other models' screens would work. I'll give it a shot. bp

Well Eric said that the Program Plus screen and Super are interchangeable, so I guess the A3000 screen won't work.

I have both the Super Program and the A3000. The screens look suspiciously similar. The A3000 screen is not user changable, so you would need to remove it from inside by removing the top cover and the prism.If you got the cameras for a very low price, then you can really could afford to experiment on your own

The Super Program, A3000, and the P series share a lot of common parts.
