Where to fix a Canon 400 2.8 series II in SOCAL

->> I was just wondering if anyone knew of any places to fix a Canon 400 2.8 Series II (non IS version) in southern California around the Los Angeles area. If non in LA, would be glad to hear of other places around the west coast or country.

Canon no longer services these lenses and the aperture on my camera's read 00 when connected.
It was working perfectly then I switched to a shorter lens at a football game and when I reconnected the 400 it just didn't work. I tied multiple cameras and also cleaning the mount.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

(Have also used Midstate in similar a out-of-manufacture situation (Canon 200/f1.8). Sent my lens from Calif and service was prompt & excellent.)

389 Warwick Ave
Warwick, RI 02888

Two brothers, Keith and Mark, run the shop and are fantastic. Keith usually answers the phone, but at times Mark seems to get it (usually when Keith is not there).
