Desilvered prism repair

Cost = £25 for the part + labour (£40)

The prism inside the Pentax K1000 is topped with foam, over time as this degrades it can damage the silver coating of the prism. You may see a black fungus like growth through the viewfinder that indicates that your prism has desilvered. This is more common in the Chinese made Pentax K1000's which can be identified as they do not have "Asahi" written above Pentax on the top plate.

While this does not impact the camera's function it can become distracting while trying to focus the camera. The best course of action is to replace the prism as a whole and remove/replace any foam to prevent any damage to the new prism. 

Fitting replacement light seals

If you would like the light seals replaced on your Pentax K1000 this will cost £25. If your camera is already in for a repair the cost will be lower.


Replacement leather finish

We also offer a replacement leather finish service which costs £40 for a Pentax K1000. If your camera is already in for a repair the cost will be lower.
