Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

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



Answers :

It does unscrew....just apply more force.

I have a kodak z8121s and I have been running it with regular aa batteries but it uses them up so fast so I decided to go ahead and spend over $100 to buy the kodak lithium 3.7v rechargable battery klic8000 with a charger and guess what the battery will not work in my camera. I know that the battery is the right battery and I know that the battery works because my daughter has the same camera and it works on hers. so my question is what would cause a brand new battery not work on my camera

Adding WD-40 Will adding a little bit of wd-50 to the camera zoom swivel head affect the camera? I probably should have sprayed it on a napkin and wiped it but I sprayed it directly on. But not much at all. But my camera has completely stopped working and its stuck with the zoom out and everything. But it might also be a battery problem since I dont have my battery charger and dont know if the camera died but I dont think it would die with the lens still exposed. I have a Sone DSC-W50.

I have a Canon EOS Digital Rebel, and just recently noticed an issue with the focus. I can't seem to focus in on anything, regardless of the distance, setting, lens, or if I'm in MF/AF. I'm guessing it has to be some sort of internal issue, but I don't know what this would be or how to fix it.

The outer lense is smashed badly. I would like to know whether warranty covers this type of damage and if not how much would it likely cost to replace. As far as I know the lenses inside are fine. Thks.

I have a Sony DSC-W370 and the outermost glass lens has been scratched (by a piece of sand, I think). It's ruining every shot I take, really, but everything else on the camera works fine. I can't seem to find a replacement part and I wouldn't know how to fix it even if I had a spare. How would I take it apart, for example? What I'm wondering is whether it would be possible to have this outside piece of glass polished and if I do would it ruin the image? I was thinking of taking it to an e

Humidity Issues Hi! This past week I went on a cruise to Cozumel and Progresso, Mexico. At both locations, once at the pier and once on the ship, the outer and inner lense would fog over and stay like that for 5-15 minutes. The only way I could clear it would be to place the camera in front of a fan (which would "dry" it faster) or fan it with a piece of paper (which took forever - don't really know if this even helped). I have never had this problem before and have owned 3 different Canon c

My kodak DX7630 has a problem. I think I know what is causing it but I need to know how to take it apart. Do you know how the dial for the different controls is removed ? What is happening is the camera continuously turns on and off. If I apply pressure on one side of the dial, it quits. I am guessing that there is dirt between the dial and the contact board.
