Now that Pentax have pulled out of the UK, and JPL have closed, where does one go for spares?
I took out my X-5 this week, only to find that the insert from the mode dial was no longer in place. OK, so I can still use it by looking at the monitor, but I want it complete.


So where do I go?

Won't it stick back on? Even a replacement would require sticking.

An update as promised....

A new company has taken over JPSS.

Contact details:

Tim Kessel - KesselT@jpss.co.uk
Tel: 01782 753 342

I am under the impression that work will be undertaken in the current buildings for the short-term.

The new company name will be announced in due course, but for continuity they are using the JPSS email and website, which will change.

When I've got any more info. I'll share straight away.

I would phone Chris at SRS and ask what the current status is. He'll be among the first to know I'm sure.
Best regards, John

That was my first thought too.

If I could find it, that is just what I would do.

Daft Q time, have you checked the hidden depths of your camera bag or in the car possibly ?

If yes, probably try John's suggestion and contact the team at SRS

yep little bits often find their way up into the seams behind the padding where they're near impossible to locate without pulling the bag apart holding the seams where the padding meets the back of the bag and giving a good shake...
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

I'm sure I've seen something about the new company name, phone etc., but I can not find it.

I have that Peter, but there is a later version with new name etc. What I'm not sure about is that I saw it on Pentaxuser

See post #3 on page 1.

But that doesn't overcome the fact that jpss.co.uk is now a vanished website. It was right when stated early in 2018, but would seem not to be live now. Why do you think Ricoh say to go through them now and not refer you to jpss ? By all means try emailing jpss but I'd expect it to bounce.
Best to try phoning and see if there's anyone there to answer.

Option of a fresh X-5 here perhaps?
