    Ilford 500S up in smoke... :-(

    Anyone know where I might get a 500S power supply (for Ilford 500H head) mended in the UK? Mine has gone up in puff of smoke.

    One guy who might help (semi-retired electronics technician who has worked for major UK companies) is:

    Brian Chapman
    211 Chart Downs
    Dorking
    Surrey RH5 4DD

    Tel. 01306 888382

    He has done a good job on my elderly studio flashheads, I assume he can fix timers as well! A strong point of his is that he is willing and able to work on older gear.

    Regards,

    David

    I needed help with the conversion of a Colourstar 3000 analyser to allow it to run on a Durst enlarger as opposed to a Devere which is what it had been set up for and Nova Darkroom put me onto a company called Lightwave which it has used for a number of electrical jobs.

    The guy there is very helpful and gave me advice on how I could do the conversion myself so he wasn't looking to capitalise on my ignorance and isn't looking for a "quick buck". Companies like that deserve our business.

    I can't say he can handle your job but he's worth a try.

    The number is 01959 570281

    Thanks for your help. I've sent it off to Odyssey to see if they can fix it...

    Thanks. Shame it's in the States. They weigh about 12kg, so I hate to think what the shipping would cost. I haven't heard if my unit is repairable so I may have to plum for this one anyway!
