Hey, yesterday on a shoot, my CP16 take up motor crapped out. All that was shot was lost unfortunately. I am in San Diego and I need to get the camera fixed up. If you know of any decent repair shops in the LA area that still work on CPs, please let me know. Thank you.

I think George Zorzoli at Electro Optical House in Culver City may be able to help you. They brought back my CP modified ACL motor from the land of the dead a few years back. They are top notch techs.

Ken at whitehouse is a pretty helpful guy. There is no take up motor on the CP-16r, so you likely have one of two very fixable problems. Possibly, the toothed belt that connects the main wheel to the take up clutch might have been stripped. If so it would be possible that the main wheel turns without turning the take up. The other possibility is that the clutch itself is slipping too much and needs to be adjusted/replaced.

Good luck. PM me if you have any questions. I am not a camera tech, but I have a bit of experience poking around the CPs.
