Customer Question

I have a Leitz pradovit n24 which I haven't used for years. I wanted to show some slides to an elderly friend but found that whilst the fan and bulb work the arm that pushes and pulls the slides in and out is not working.
Any suggestions as to a quick fix or where I could take it for repair. Thanks

The parts for the n24 are obsolete, with any luck it just needs serviced, and abit of lubrication with some silicon\ptfe spray.

If you are not wanting to strip it down yourself, I would suggest you approach a local camera store, should you wish me to locate such a store in your area please provide me with your postcode.

Thanks

Good morning Geoff,

I would highly recommend Chiswick Camera Centre on(###) ###-####9114, they charge £10 to look at it and quote for repair\service, but if you proceed the £10 comes off the cost of repair.

Should you wish to have someone look at it drop it in before Tuesday, as the engineer works off site and collects its from store on the Tuesday.

Regards

James
