Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Pentax PZ1 The mirror and shutter are locked on my PZ1 film camera, I am told that it would cost more to repair than it is worth so I would like to try myself. Another expert thinks that the internal gears may be jammed or seized so I would like to know how to get at the gears. Do I remove the bottom plate and work inwards from there or the top plate?

Have been advised that our Megxon C480 needs replacing or repairing due to error message AF NOT CALIBRATED, but would like to know where we may enquire for repairs and would like to know roughly what sort of cost we are looking at?

Is it possible that the card is full and the camera has reverted to the internal memory? If so, how do I retrieve the data on the card? Thanks. Nick
