T-90 repair info

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

Could someone point me towards a repair shop that works on T-90's. I need cleaned, lubed, and maybe prisum replaced. I'm in ENM, so about anywhere USA OK.

James, You might try a place called Phototronic. They are in Topeka KS. The phone number is (785) 233-0231. They also have a web sight: www.fixoldcameras.com They treaded me right when they fixed my AE-1. Good luck, Kirby

Thanks to all that answered!

I got in touch with FARGO ENTERPRISES and ordered the foam. It was the self stick kind and was not a problem to put on. Only problem is I now have enough left over to repair 200 other T-90's! :-)

Thanks again!

Here are a few suggestions:

1. Go to www.google.com (website) and search for Canon T90. After several pages there are several repair shops advertising the work they do on the camera.

2. Barry Camera Shop (Glendale, CA) does work Canon repair work for Canoga Cameras. They do all their used equipment inspections. I can not vouch for them, but it may be worth a try.

3. International Camera Corp (Chicago, IL 312-630-1017). My local repair shop encourages their customers to talk with these folks when things get to sophisticated for them. Again I can not vouch for their work, but I have heard several comments of people being satisfied.

If people want to send me the names of shops I will compile a list.

I use Strauss Professional Technical Services in Washington DC for my camera work. So far, I have not had to have them work on my T90s, but they have done wonderful work on my A-1 and 35-105 lens.
