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 follow the instructions (press 4-way controller down in play mode, select protect, hit ok) but then I don't get the same screen as what the instructions say will appear.

I inherited a Manfrotto tripod with a a Manfrotto 3130 head attached. I purchased a very large lens and need to change the head, but I can't get the first one off. This is partially because I don't know how it is attached to the tripod. I would have guessed it simply screws on, but nothing moves when I try to unscrew it. Help please. Thanks, John

This is a stupid question I know. I purchased a Digipower Universal Charger TC3000; I have used it once and now can't remember how I'm suppose to put the battery in.

My Olympus FE-370 has a broken screen, my fault. I bought a replacement off ebay for really cheap and it seems like it would work fine, but I'm having trouble taking the camera apart..A few of the screws, three around the screw-in tripod holder in the base of the camera, two on the right hand side close to the lens, and one right under the USB port, refuse to come out! If someone could help me with just that part, I would probably be able to figure out the rest! Thank you!
