Bogen head slips

\015 I have a pistol grip bogen tripod head. The head will move to any pisition, but when locked, it slips with the weight of the camera. I've tried tightening it, but it still slips\015

I"ve owned four pistol grip heads, and eventually they all do this. They simple wear out.

I have a problem with the Panasonic AJ-D200. The tape will not close. The symptom developed after I loaded a head cleaning cassette. I then loaded a normal tape and now it won't close. I then changed this tape drive for a spare drive. Powered up the camera and tried again. I loaded a head cleaning cassette. Then loaded a normal cassette and now this one won't close.

I have an old Sony Hi8 Handycam model CCD-TR705E. Have not used it for about 4 years and decided to upload tapes to DVD via a DVD recorder. Worked fine for the first 5 hours of film then suddenly picture not visible (sound is fine) but when in review mode (press play then rewind without pressing stop) can see pictures. Have tried using a new head cleaning tape. Do you think this is very dirty heads or more serious? How can I fix it if head cleaner tape doesn't?

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.

I have a Panasonic camcorder NV-GS70B which writes to mini DV tapes. I am now finding that on playback of tapes I have recorded it is losing the audio signal on some tapes. Some of these tapes I know originally had an audio signal recorded. Someone has suggested there may be a build up of oxide on the heads which might have been transferred to some of the tapes. I have tried a head cleaning tape (twice) but without effect. I have two concerns: 1) the camera - can it easily be repaired 2)

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

I am looking for quick release plate for a Radio Shack RST-84V tripod made in the 90s. I looked all over (local radio shack stores and corp. head quarters) but no one has any info. Finally I came across the Solidex Excel Series Tripod. The plastic molding of the head and the label font where exactly the same so I know either it was Solidex who made my tripod for radio shack, or the company that makes the Solidex tripod.
