    My Contax 645 body is having trouble 'reading' , syncing up electronically , with my film backs- sometimes it works & sometimes not...frustrating...anyone having this problem (simple cleaning of contacts doesn't seem to work)? Anyone know who works on these cameras? Grimes has declined. Carl

    Tritec in Germany is the official service partner (for Europe) for Contax after Kyocera stopped the production.
    I donĀ“t know whether there is an independent service partner for the US.
    Service for Contax cameras made by Kyocera will exist for 10 years since production stopped.
    Just email them: info@tritec-service.de
