    Hi,

    My Ricoh GR-1s stopped working recently, basically the aperture thingy
    doesn't open and the flash doesn't fire when I try and take a photo.

    I dropped it years ago and it worked fine for ages after that, then
    stopped working fairly recently, I don't know if the two are related.

    Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows any good repair shops in London
    (UK) which might be able to take a look at it?

    Thanks,

  3. Mine recently failed with the exact same symptoms! Did you get yours
    repaired and if so how much did it cost?

    Thanks,
    Simon.

    I haven't done yet. At some point, when I'm feeling energetic, I'll try
    and find somewhere decent in London.


    Bit unsure about sending it to some random guy with a phone number on
    usenet....

    Will note your email address and let you know how I get on.

    Johnson's Photopia is, apparently, the authorised service place for Ricoh
    GRs. I have yet to try them, by Robert White recommended them.
