    You can try repair shops in Peninsular shopping center, most of them are at ground level. You can also try Camera Hospital. But I bring all my stuff to bro fatigue here in clubsnap.

    what is TSLR??

    never heard of that.

    anyway, be prepare to fork out a couple hundreds for clearing and services, it may not worthwhile to repair it unless it has sentimental value.

    I had an old Yashica Mat 124G cleaned a few years ago. Still using it now. Had it done at Fee Fee at Upper Cross St -- they don't have permanent repair people like some of the shops at Peninsula (Camera Workshop etc). Lens cleaning was ard $80 then, though some of the marks on the lens were permanent and could not be removed.
    One thing I was warned about before going for the cleaning -- the Yashica TLRs sometimes have mechanical issues with internal gears, so film doesn't advance properly. I ran a test roll through the camera to check this first before having the lenses cleaned. If the gears are a problem, you might see overlapping frames and / or uneven gaps between frames.

    Adelphi basement. But be careful, there are some shops there that will clean you up instead.
