  • Camera repair centers

    I have an older spartan mini that I recently took in. Theres a nasty kink about 2' back from the spring..Still works but its hanging on for dear life. Any service centers in chicago ,illinois,or indiana anywhere?I dont think allan j Coleman services spartan cameras...I dont want to send it out to spartan ,they take forever theres a guy that fixes em but I'd have to pay a gwap for shipping...trying to find something local

    And then there was a Place called AJ Coleman in Chicago.

    Even my Ridgid Rep in Minneapolis says to go there.

      Won't hurt to ask. Perhaps they will know who will fix it.

    Who does reterm in SoCal? I need to get my Color SL repaired. Update: I dropped my camera off at EPL for repair. Turns out the slip rings were bad. My only gripe is that I asked them how long it would be down and they indicated a day or two. Unfortunately they didn't have the parts in stock so it's estimated to be more like a week. They did offer to provide me a "loaner" but it was out on loan to someone else.

      I'll never use Spartan service for anything again. Several years ago when I was working for another company we bought a Spartan cam (similar to the one pictured above but I think it had DVD recorder). Apparently they sold us one of the last units before they switched platforms and when it needed repair a year later they wouldn't even take it in for service. They flat out told us they don't work on those anymore and advised us to buy a new one! We ended up getting if fixed locally and continued to use it but WTF!

      I still use their drum machines but NEVER buy anything from them or have them service anything.
