    Can a Contax N1 be fixed?

    My beloved Contax N1 (autofocus Contax 35mm) will take about 5 or 6 photos fine and then show "EEEE" on the LCD. Recycling the power will make it work fine for 5 or 6 photos.

    I guess I could live with it but does anyone know is this a software "reset issue" or do I need to get it fixed. I am not sure where to even get it fixed (who would have the CPU)?

    KEH? Any ideas?

    Thanks, Jeffrey

    I hope someone has this information because I too have an N1. Nice camera...for an orphan.

    Try TOCAD in NY State. I hear they still repair Contax (officially?) or send they back to Japan for repair. I think I'll be sending my RTS III there.

    Thanks for the TOCAD link. I will be sending it there. They mention they don't repair certain RTS models due to limited parts availability. But they give the name of a company to contract.

    Good luck and thanks for the link.
