My Contax TVS has died!

My Contax TVS Film camera has died and I'm seeking advice as to where if anywhere I could get it repaired.

I was out using the camera and when I came to extend the lens barrel the camera made a repeated ticking sound and the OFF symbol appeared in the viewfinder as though the lens barrel was not extended (you have to extend the lens barrel to turn the camera on).

About thirty seconds later the flash symbol on the top plate LCD vanished. However the camera still has power as you can press the film mid roll rewind button and it powers up the motor to rewind film.

I really would like to get this camera reapired as it's discreet, pleasant to use and gives good results. I'm aware they have not been made for a while or the Contax brand imported into the UK.

Any advice as to what may be wrong with the camera or where possibly to get it reapired is much appreciated.

Thanks Aidan
