Finally, for anyone with an old MZ-5 or similar film body, I found out that they can repair both the pop-up flash spring and the faulty internal film drive motors!

I'd be interested to know how much they charge for the cog change on the mirror motor of the MZ-5, did they mention a price?

Sorry, I didn't discuss the cost of that - but see further up this thread for their contact details.
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

Update : Harrow Technical's website says he is still repairing cameras on a semi-retired basis and only by post. Robin only works on film cameras though. He fixed the dodgy circuit board on my LX and its worked perfectly since then.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I'm glad that Robin is still active (in a manner of speaking ) - expertise like his is difficult to replace.

Robin of Harrow Technical is still taking on repairs. He serviced my daughter's Pentax ME Super. Excellent chap. Email info@harrowtechnical.co.uk.

Belated endorsement of Robin's skills. He CLA'd my MX a year or so ago and it came back like new.
Long may he continue.

Thank you. Have contacted HT for an MX service. Will try Asahi if unsuccessful.

Since this thread started about A110 servicing, I thought the following message from Asahiphoto yesterday 21/3/'20 might be useful:
"Yes , our workshop is still open and we are able to offer a repair service on all the cameras on your list except the Auto 110 .".

In November in response to a query about the MZ5 gear failure:
"MZ-5s replace faulty mirror motor £85".

Turns out I can't find the faulty MZ-5 anyway after several moves and I'd picked up a mint MZ-5n for very silly money, so I didn't pursue finding it!
