Anyone fix camra's?

My friend has what she believes are vintage 60's camra's and she would like to get them checked out and "tuned up" so to speak. Does anybody know how to or where we could go to get them looked at? Much thanks for your help in advance!

1. Thread back from the dead
2. Vintage camera, unspecified brand, many manufactures no longer around
3. Local may be able to fix same day, same week etc. Shipping it out may take a month turn around.
4. Hi.

I actually need to have a couple cameras looked at. My Canon PELLIX QL was working fine, but suddenly stopped for no apparent reason. Seems like something is just a little sticky. I've also got a Kodak Retina IIc that is in great shape aside from a dent on the top cover and a couple scuffs. Could probably remove the top cover and push the dent out and it might work fine. Right now, though, I just have Five nice, old silver and black shelf decorations (though, two of the SLRs and one of the rangefinders work fine).

That's one of the cameras I have at the moment. Like I said, though, that one is pretty just a decoration. Got it the other day. Right now I have:

Canon PELLIX QL
Canon AE-1
Olympus OM-10
Kodak Retina II c
Yashica Electro 35 G

All in all, I paid like $100 for all of them, if that.

That does suck. Mine's just an old beater AE-1 in black and silver. I like it in black and silver, because that's what all my other film stuff is. Hoping the OM-10 will be gone soon, though. Have it up on eBay right now.
