Hi,

My old LCA's metering seem's off. Any idea where can I get it servised?

It is indeed a very old LCA with only Russian words on it... :sweat:

Thanks in advance for any input.

Cheers!

You can try bringing it down to Objectifs and see if they can get it fixed for you.

hi guys, having some prob with my vivitar cam.
when i turn the film advance wheel, the film take-up spool does not rotate..
anybody knows how to solve this?
i've tried fiddling with the film rewind button underneath the advance wheel to no avail..

if not, it seems i'm doomed to get a new one.

thanks for your time guys.

this is why i quit the unreliable lomo.. and recommend XA or rollei 35s.. my shutter died.. i fixed for 100.. if its a mechanical thing.. the guy might be able to modify and you can still use it.. if the electronics have fried.. then you can kiss your lomo goodbye.. they usually say they will take it in and see how.. no guarantee that can bring it back to life.. this is what is called the lomo "shutter of death"

ask for discount lor... :p

he might give u a discount

but take it in account that..

160.. steven will fix ur lca until tip top condition
+ cla for u..
and also make sure ur lens is clean clean wor...

u buy a new one also doesn't mean it will work properly
cuz there's no new lca.. except for lca+ which is 400+++
all those lca are ex-stock or used....
