Hi guys
I dropped a camera with the flash attached and this happened. Can anyone advise the part number number or how I would order the replacement piece for the end of my GF-1 flash.
Thanks in advance
Moses

I suspect it'll have to be sourced from a broken unit, or via a repairer, as it seems Ricoh/Pentax won't sell parts to end users.

I get the impression commercial repairers struggle to get parts too at times!

Although I don't have the details (search this forum) there are a few repairers out there plus Johnson's of course. Best to try them for quotes first.

There is a new one on eBay at the moment - 49 + postage.

I have bought Pentax parts on a couple of occasions from Johnson's. I did however know the part numbers incase that makes a difference.

Do you have the piece that broke off?

Best regards

Could you not fabricate a piece on the end from something like Sugru, and then carefully file it to shape with a fine file?

Might be considered to a bit of a bodge, but would be a lot cheaper (a few quid for a pack of Sugru) and cheaper.

Not a single reply from the OP on both threads started wrt to this flashgun.

Had not noticed that this was a very old thread, but I agree with what I think you are implying, but not actually saying!
