Program Plus focusing screen

Hi guys,

I just won a Program Plus and a ME Super in a combined eBay lot. The seller noted that while both cameras are functioning perfectly, the focusing screen on the Program Plus is messed up from a cleaning attempt gone wrong.

So what I'm wondering is if there's a way to buy just the focusing screen for a Program Plus, or if I'm better off buying a broken one (or a broken Super Program) and swapping it out. Does the famous Eric sell them?

Thanks!

Messed up screen?

You might check with your friendly local camera repair. They have ways of cleaning gunky/gungy screens. My local guy has worked miracles on a couple of my cameras in the past.

His exact quote was: "the focusing screen is nasty, all streaked up and cloudy from an improper cleaning attempt?.....needs a new screen"

Just got word back from Eric that he can sell me a new screen for the Program Plus for $20 shipped. Not bad!

You could send it to him for a complete CLA and have him install the screen.
