Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I need a Hannimex Praktica Nova 1B repair manual. Can you tell me where I might find one. At 70, I still like to tinker.


Answers :

You'll have more success if you search for the real camera behind the Hanimex badging: in this case it's the Praktica Nova.

As the camera ceased production long before the internet age, it's unsurprising that there do not appear to be any free downloads of the repair manual. However you can still buy them: it's been a long time since I saw one even when rummaging through boxes at camera fairs, but you can order a printed hard copy of the repair manual if you click here 9scroll down to the bottom of the page). The link is provided for convenience only, you may wish to search further to see if you can get one at lower cost. Having said that, the price quoted is about par for the course for a ready-printed copy.

To be fair, the manual costs more than your camera is worth, but in this instance I suspect that's not really an issue. Spare parts are as rare as fresh dodo doo-doos, but many can be fabricated if you have a basic workshop: that's pretty much how the camera was originally built anway. Spares are also readily available from the millions of abandoned Praktica screw mount SLRs lying unused in cupboards and drawers, models like the later MTL5 may look more modern but use many similar parts under the surface.

I hope that my reply has been of some assistance to you, please take a moment to reciprocate by rating my answer.

My Nikon CoolPix 5700 seems confused about OFF and ON, and now I can't take a photo becase it won't stay ON long enough for me to press the shutter release. The problem appears a bit like a low-battery issue, but I have been placing totally recharged batteries (as fas as I can tell) in it (two different ones) over and over, and still the camera turns on and off at will. Any ideas? Is there a way to totally reboot the camera, like one reboots hard drives? Thank you.

Shuts off My camera shuts off in the middle of taking pictures. There are no low battery warning lights, new batteries (and even replaced those with new ones) but the problem is still the same. Does anyone know what the remedy might be. I love this camera and wish it would work like it like it once did. thanks.

Can you tell me where to purchase a new lens? My daughter dropped my camera, Kodak easy share M1063, and it does not open anymore. Probably a gear is off inside the housing, which I could not open without smaller screwdrivers. I figure it would be easier to replace the whole lens. I have already taken it apart and know that I can replace the lens if I can find one. I had an estimate for an online repairman to fix it for $85 + shipping. For that price I might as well purchase a new camera. Only r

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).

I have a Kodak EasyShare C143 serial number KCGMU03223587 and this is my second one since August of this year. I had the same problem with both. The first one I was able to exchange, but the second one I can't since I haven't been able to find my receipt for it. The problem is I go to turn on the camera and the lens goes out so far and that is it. No screen or anything. If the screen does happen to come on it is on for like 2 seconds and it goes off.

We have a Fuji S5000 digital camera we really like. However, lately it takes shots that are more like artwork with colors running down the page. I looked it up and it appears to be the image sensor.
