    Anyone know someone or a place that can fix a TC-1?

    The problem is that the shutter wont fire at all apertures.

    Someone suggested this place(www.xatx.net.tw/gosn/main.shtml) but I dont speak/ understand chinese so I can't ask them if they can still fix the camera.

    *the camera (boxed+case+strap) will be for sale if I dont find a repairer*

    got a reply from 'camerarepairworkshop' saying they cannot repair the camera they dont do that camera and also have not parts for it.

    the above link was from a guy who had a tc-1 fixed there a couple of years ago.

    i will try and contact the german company.

    Tried to get it repaired here in London (Sendean Cameras) but they managed to make the camera worst by no turning on/off anymore. The camera is completely dead now. Before I use to turn it on/ off and the lens would extend and the winder would move but not anymore.

    Will not be using them anymore.

    You might try writing to Greg Weber in the US. While he deals with Konica cameras, perhaps he could point you in the right direction?
