View Full Version : g2 autowind fault - all fixed!
Don't know if anyone remembers, but I had my G2 go wrong on me about two months ago. I was looking for the original post but I guess its dropped off.
Well its all back from Japan, winding unit replaced, some general adjustments, serviced and cleaned. £115 spent and its back to showroom condition. Now I've just got to ween myself off the Mamiya 7ii I'd bought to get me through the downtime.
You bought a Mamiya 7ii to replace your G2 in the interim?! :eek:
Good to know you could still get your G2 repaired if things go awry...
Can you post where you sent it to in the event another G owner needs that final option?
Well the Mamiya wasn't really a replacement, but it did give me a reason to justify the outlay. Lovely viewfinder, very very bright although the framelines are taking a little time to get used to.
My Contax was repaired through Alpha Digital Services Ltd, they're in Reading, UK. http://www.alphadigitalservices.co.uk/
They sent it onto Japan for the repair. They appear to have regular repair packages going back and forth all the time. Repair costs are usually in the £50-£150 price bracket and rare for anything to go over £200. It takes about 4-5 weeks unless it gets held up at customs like mine did, and so took nearer six.
