We are Pentax repair specialists with 20 years’ experience fixing digital Pentax cameras and video cameras.
We carry out the full range of Pentax repairs at our camera repair shop in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. These include the repair, refurbishment and servicing of portable instant cameras and compact cameras offering lightweight, fixed lens flexibility to DSLRs and mirrorless cameras with state-of-the-art features.
Keeping your Pentax camera in perfect working order is key to ensuring you’ll get years of great service from it. At our Pentax repair centre, we utilise leading technology and over 30 years of specialist know-how, to ensure our customers receive a service that is second-to-none.
But we are not solely a Pentax digital camera repair specialist. We also repair other camera, lens and accessory brands, including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic, etc. Furthermore, we repair camcorders and are an approved JVC video camera service and repair centre.
Before we fix your Pentax camera, we first need to establish the exact fault. Common problems include the camera lens, LCD display, shutter, battery door error, sensor issue, software issues, water damage, SD card error or data recovery from the camera may be required.
As Pentax camera experts, we can mend all the following problems:
Underexposed Images: This fault is usually caused by a malfunction in the aperture control mechanism. We can replace and setup the aperture control for you.
Camera Shutter Error: Sometimes the Pentax camera’s shutter might be stuck open leading to overexposed images or if stuck closed, black images.
Camera Lens Error: Lens errors are very common and mostly they’re found in Pentax cameras that have barrel style lenses. We can fix Pentax camera lenses or carry out Pentax lens replacement.
Camera Software Issues: Sometimes with Pentax digital cameras you might find the hardware working well but there’s a problem in the software.
Camera Battery Error: Battery problems are another common occurrence, whether it is the power battery or backup battery. We can repair the circuit and replace the backup battery in most Pentax cameras.
Fixing a Wet Camera: If you’ve dropped your Pentax camera in water by accident, it will damage your camera. We can remove any corrosion.
SD Card Error: Sometimes the problem can be in your SD card and not in the camera itself. If you see ‘write error’ then your photos will not get written to the card. First check your card is not locked and then try to take photos. We can usually replace the socket, rather than the whole board which is far more cost effective.
Our Pentax camera repair shop uses hi-tech equipment to fix Pentax cameras at a component level. It is often possible for us to repair sockets and individual components, rather than having to go to the cost of replacing a whole module (e.g a complete circuit board).
We can clean, service and fix your camera, as well as any damaged casings, motors, CCDs and CMOS sensors.

We offer estimates suitable for insurance purposes. We would require the Pentax camera for inspection and confirmation of the damage.
Inspection reports are chargeable, which would be deducted from the final repair cost should the repair be completed. The inspection fee must be paid before the inspection and covers the return carriage to you if the estimate is declined.
During the inspection, the technician will inspect the camera and report his findings. We will then email a PDF copy of the inspection report to you, which is suitable for insurance purposes. For further details, please review our insurance quotes information here.
Keeping your Pentax camera working at its best means keeping it clean and calibrated. Over time, dirt and metal shavings from lens changes get into the camera body and start to affect performance. Static electricity can also build up within the shutter mechanism which attracts more dust onto the CCD.
Using our modern cleanroom facility and ionising, anti-static air guns, we can ensure that the CCD and Mirrorbox are completely cleaned and static-free.
Our prices for cleaning and servicing start at £48. This cost includes any minor parts required and include VAT.
