Repairs

The Pentax total stations that are compatible with the LaserLynx software are older models. Although there are several repair facilities that used to work on the Pentax, most will not attempt the alignment and calibration because Pentax not longer offers the repair facilities the required Pentax factory training and tools.

For the older model Pentax total stations, Western Latitudes, appears to be the only factory authorized Pentax repair facility in the USA. They have headquarters in Centennial, Colorado and a Pentax repair facility in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Contact Barbara Western Latitude (800-330-3336. email: barb...@westlat.com )

The repair facilities shipping address is:

AE2-Westlat
3901 Greensboro
Tuscaloosa, Alabama 35405
phone: 800-877-0155

An estimate at Western Latitude is $205 per unit. Repair work is $120 per hour. As an example, my Pentax-325N was damaged during shipment to a meet in Oregon. It needed 3 hours of work: needs alignment; align EDM; complete calibration. Another unit, a Pentax PCS 215, was also damaged during shipment to a meet in Oregon, required 10 hours of labor: needs alignment; disassemble telescope; tighten and adjust EDM prisms; reassemble; adjust EDM; complete calibration.
