Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Can someone help out. I have a 058 model tripod, a good old work horse, I want to take the head off and replace it with a #268. the problem is, how do you remove the head? I have removed the 3 small screws from under the base, but nothing gives. What am I missing?? Thanks. Geoff.


Answers :

After you remove the 3 screws, you have to unscrew the head itself (it's threaded by a bolt in the middle). This video on YouTube shows the process:

Hi Guys, I am hoping that someone can offer some explaination for the following. I bought a Nikon D7000 in November and it has suddenly started displaying 3 small doughnut shaped marks on my images. I have not removed my Nikon 16-85 lens from the body so I would not have thought that sensor dust was the problem. To eliminate that the problem is on the lens I have now swapped the lens with my telephoto and the problem is still there! I have just sent an email to the company that I purchased from


Don't kid yourself....most cameras come with factory dust already installed!!! Yours just took awhile to deposit on the sensor. Google the words "cleaning a DSLR sensor" and you will find sites showing you in pictures how to clean the sensor and wher ... Digital Cameras

I have a replacement LCD display for my Finepix S1000 FD camera. I can remove all the screws, but the cover will not come off. There are two small screw like pins on the bottom on each side of the tripod connection but they are not standard tips. Can you give instruction on how to correctly remove the cover. I am fairly hardware proficient as I service pc's and printers.

I have a nikon coolpix 8800. i have a 6gb card installed. I have the latest firmware. I recently took over 1000 pictures on a trip without downloading any of the photos. Once the picture count got over 1000 the camera would give me a system error 2 each time i took a picture so I had to turn the camera off between each picture.

Even with fresh batteries installed, I only get a few shots before the "battery empty" icon appears. Then, if I remove and then re-insert the same batteries, the initial result is a green battery icon which may only give me one shot before the "battery empty" icon appears again. If I use only the viewfinder, I may get a couple more shots. It looks like an electrical problem but what should I do?

Dear Sirs, my Sony DSC F828 would switch off partly through a photo shoot and then it is a problem to get it back on again. If I remove the battery it would come on for a few seconds or untill it has booted properly and then switch off again. The battery is fully charged when this happens so it don't seem to have anything to do with the battery being improperly charged. Could you please give an answer on this one!!!

My Canon ZR200 camera will not eject the tape. I never had this problem before. Camera has never been dropped but all of a sudden the message to eject tape showed up but it won't do it. After repeated emails to Canon it is evident that they are not going to give me the info to remove the tape myself. They want me to send it in (for a price to be determined after I send it in) or to trade up at a cost. I don't want to do either, just get the tape out of camera. I don't even care if it never work

Fairly brand new (less than 6 months old) Canon rebel xti - shooting in manual mode, then it gives a low battery message. I switch the battery and nothing. I recharge the first battery and install it, again - nothing. I removed the internal battery and left both batteries out for 30 minutes. Nada. I have barely even used this camera and I am furious.

Olympus D-435 Our camera has been working fine until last week when we started getting this error message - memory full on a blue screen when we had taken only one photo (and deleted all previous photos). Thinking there was a problem with the memory card, we removed it and used only the camera's internal memory which worked for a short while - allowing us to take 12 shots - but now it will only let us take 1 shot before giving us the error message. Is there anything I can do? Many thanks


You can try updating the firmware of the camera since this is not a problem with the memory card its with the camera itself you can check Olympus web site for software update on this.Hope that helps....... ... Digital Cameras
