Hi Martin.

This camera has been out of production for quite some time now and new parts are not available. However, most repair shops still have a supply of rewind knobs that will work on your camera. You may want to check locally for a camera repair shop in your area, or, ifyou need assistance finding a shop, please let me know and I'll locate one for you.
