    I have an AE-1 that has served me well for the last 20+ years. Recently it
    has started to show (understandable) signs of age - the battery door has
    cracked and broken for one.

    Anyone know of a good quality / good value Canon repairer in the Midlands?

    Or is there any way to get hold of a service manual and spare parts for this
    camera and attempt a DIY service / repair?

    The typical local camera shop wants £70-£90 for a clean lube and adjust.

    Thanks for any info.

    X-No-Archive: Yes
    Hmm. That's the same price range I paid a year ago for 'service' & shutter
    m'chip replacement for Yashica FR1 of similar vintage (in Midlands too, at
    the time)
