Pentax USA Parts - Thumbs Up!!!

I have been in communication with Pentax USA trying to get my MZ-5n pop-up flash fixed. I am a DIY kind of guy so I already has the top off of the camera and figured out what was broken. I called the 800 number, got a parts rep who then e-mailed me the parts list/diagram. I e-mailed back with the part number that I needed and asked how to order it. Received an e-mail back saying send your address and we will send a couple of replacement parts, No Charge!!!
I was blown away to be able to get the parts, let alone at no charge. Two big thumbs up from me for the parts department at Pentax USA.
Anyway, just wanted to relay my experience.

I have called the Pentax USA parts department perhaps a half dozen times in the last ten years.
The woman who sometimes answers the phone is often not willing to look for parts for older gear.

Very cool! Don't think they'd do that here in Romania, though.

Models are Very Limited

Yeah, they don't carry parts for many of the old camera bodies. I tried to get parts for my PZ-1P and they don't have anything. I think that the first call screener looks up the camera model to determine if they still support it with parts. If they don't you don't get any further with them. It looks like they only support the ZX(MZ) bodies and the *ist film bodies at this point.

Very nice. Any chance you can take an image of the parts list/diagram and post it to save me some trouble?

Wow, way to resurrect a really old thread!

Here is the .pdf file...

Hope this helps. The part that I needed was Q7-01, which is in red on the diagram.
