How do I get the strobe light on the Mobilite 300 to stay on continuously?


Answers :

You can't get the strobe light to stay on continuously, the strobe is a very high voltage discharge lamp which can only illuminate briefly.

But the unit does have a built in modelling lamp at far lower power and intensity, used only to set up the lighting rig and to check for shadows and highlights. As long as the unit is connected to mains voltage then you just use the power switch to turn the modelling lamp on.

CRACKED SCREEN dropped my camera and when i turn it on the screen looks cracked and it white! it looks broken on the inside. I have a polaroid i830. One day i dropped it on the floor, and it doesn't work now. If i push the power button on, the power light comes on, but the screen and everything stays off. I also can't get the light to turn off unless I take out the batteries. The screen appears to have a crack. Is there any way to fix it before spending to get a new one ??

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it. There is no history

We have a CoolPix L3 that is not very old nor has it been used (and or misused); perhaps 14 months old. Serial No. 30649827. The telescoping lens has tended to get stuck in a closed position. After installing FRESH new batteries, I gently tapped the camera body against my other hand and the lens opened but continued to move in and out. Sometimes it would stay open but not at its maximum position. Furthermore a message was displayed; LENS ERROR.What do you suggest we do. Is it repairable?
