Probably not worthing fixing unless you can not do without it. Fix this kind of problem requires a deep overhaul of the body so it is a matter of cost of manpower. You'd better sell it as is and buy a similar one, these days film cameras are very cheap even for the top models.

Fuji jx520 wont charge

Your battery probably is in the wrong way.So take it out and look on the bottom of it.You will see 3 copper cubes.Next look in to the slot where the battery goes and you will see 3 metal wires.Now take your battery and carefully line up the copper slots with the metal wires.Then push the battery in and close the battery slot.And your done go plug it into your USB slot and you will see a white battery symbol and you will know that it is charging.
Simple fix for a simple problem.

Flash for mamiya 7

As with most cameras, the flash for a Mamiya is universal. Any flash with a hot foot connection will fit onto the camera, and function on the camera's shoe mount. You may alternatively use any flash which has a PC sync cord to plug into the PC sync socket on your camera, it just depends on whether you want to use a camera phycially mounted on your camera, or an off-camera flash.

The flash shoe on the Mamiya 7 isn't an "intelligent" type, meaning it only has the standard single contact and doesn't communicate any exposure or other information between camera and flash, so even the cheapest off the shelf shoe-mount flash will work just as well as the most expensive. Even specialized dedicated Nikon, Canon, and other brand "dedicated" flashes with multiple contact pins will also work, only the functionality of the information communicated through those other pins will be lost.

My Pentax ME Super dropped. I no longer can see out of t?e view finder. I pray it ios not damaged. What can do?

The 'drop' may have caused the shutter to engage. If so, pull the two batteries from the bottom compartment and wait a few minutes to see if the shutter opens.
You may also operate the camera manually in the x125 position without batteries.
This may also be a good time to go Digital! ... I put my ME Super away and purchased the Pentax K110D for less than $200. All of my Pentax lenses work just fine, and it is ver cost effective. Please consider.
If you need more info, please comment (I am not a camera dealer).

My S2 has been dropped on the winding knob and bent the metal plate inside.have you any ''scrap''bodies that have not been similarly damaged. ?. Regards, Gerry Walton.

Sorry Gerry, but FixYa is an online resource only and does not supply tangible products of any kind. Think of FixYa as an interactive library: folks here may be able to tell you how to fix things (or who can fix your things) and where to get the parts, but the deal ends there.

In this case I cannot even suggest a supplier as I know of a number of cameras over the years referred to as S2's by different manufacturers and you haven't specified which one you're referring to.

I dropped my camcorder and now I'm unable to see any images,only a greenish screen with lines. Any advice, is it able to be salvaged?

Probably there has been misalignment in its mechanism(s).Take it to a good service center.If unrepaired, it may lead to damaging your tapes (if it is a tape type camcorder) and leaving those unusable even in other camcorders besides loss of the recorded video.

The fixed flash does not work

Don't even attempt a repair or dismantle the flash unless you're familiar with electronic circuits. The electrolytic capacitor that stores the charge for the flash carries that charge for weeks even with no battery in the camera. The working voltage is 330 at a high current density - if you touch the wrong terminal it will give you a serious jolt, maybe a burn. I'm not familiar with the Lomo but it looks like a very simple camera - it shouldn't take a competent tech. very long to repair it if it comes apart easily enough.
