It Can Be Repaired
You have not viewed any products recently.
When you have been repairing cameras, camera accessories, binoculars, game systems, iPods and more for as long as we have, you realize that with the right expertise almost anything can be repaired. And even if it looks really damaged, it may be fairly easy to repair. Before you throw it away, you may want to read these examples of what we can repair.
Believe it or not we see a lot of Canon AE1 cameras that were
sold over 25 years ago. If you take a close look at this camera
you can see that the owner took exceptional care of it. All it
needed to work properly was a simple shutter release button
repair. The owner worried that we would not have the parts or
expertise to repair his prized possession, but was pleasantly
surprised when we sent it back to him as good as new.
This 42 year old Mamiya/Sekor 500 DTL camera needed a
general overhaul to bring it back to factory specifications.
It required a meter and light shield repair, and a number of
readjustments. We did it and gained another happy customer.
This set of binoculars was used on a Navy Ship in the 1940s.
Our technicians disassembled it, conducted a thorough
cleaning, milled replacement brass screws, reset and recalibrated
the inner workings, pressurized and sealed the unit. We are
not sure if the ship these were used on is still in commission but
the binoculars are!
The Highly Damaged
This speed light is an example of a very common repair.
Unfortunately when a camera gets dropped, the speed light
seems to take the hit. This customer almost threw it away.
We assured her that this was an easy repair and sent it
back before she even missed it at a price that surprised her.
We did not ask the customer what happened, but we think
perhaps sandpaper was involved. No problem. It looked like
a brand new unit when we sent it back to him.
Dropped iPhones are another common repair we see. The
spider web pattern on the screen shows this phone was
dropped very hard. However, we were able to repair it.
We gained another happy customer when he opened his
repair box to find what looked like a brand new iPhone.
