Pin fell back inside the central shaft.

I just bought a G1298 and the pin that holds the camera fell back inside the central shaft. Is there a way to get the pin out again? Thanks.

Use a good strong magnet from the outside while holding it upside down. Move the magnet around the shaft as if going through a maze that you can't see- untill it finds the exit path out! Take an old hard drive apart and use the magnets they have-they're very powerful.

Central shaft is stuck on my dolica tripod proline


Try completely removing the thumbscrew that retains its position, then spray a very little penetrating lubricant inside and see if that will loosen it.

Video camera attaches backwards


Is the anti-rotaion pin in the way? It is the fixed pin that may not allow you to mount the camera correctly,if the camera does not have an anit-rotation hole. You can remove the pin and it should work fine.

3rd shaft lost inside 2nd shaft


Yup.Close all leggs up,tape the other 2 so they don't come out,then shake the tripod like your shaking a thermometer to get the mercury down.That lost leg should slide out easily.Once out,place a small hose clamp on each of the final legs just above the rubber tip and this will NEVER happen again.

My Canon 60d fell in salt water, briefly but enough to submerge. It has dried out and will now turn on but keeps showing error 70. Is there any chance this can be fixed? Could it dry out more and work?


I'm afraid the salt already started to corrode the inside of the camera. Are you sure you cleaned the connection points of the battery and memory card? I mean both the ones on the battery and memory card and the contacts in the camera. Do not use any sharp objects to clean the contacts, because you will damage them bend repair. If the error stays, you have to contact a Canon support centre close to you.

I need a guide pin for a cartoni b511 quick release plate and i can not find one


If you are looking for a non-threaded 'locating' pin to stop smaller video cameras from twisting on the plate...Cartoni does not make one!!! You will either need to mickey mouse something or purchase a new camera plate from another manufacturer that offers this. Luckily this plate is a standard 'Euro' plate used by many video tripod manufacturers. For example, I know the Miller cat# 860 will take a cat# 493 DV carriage which provides not only the 1/4-20" screw but also the locater pin as an assembly.

Samsonite attache case lock


I just used the following solution successfully...
thanx to whomever posted it.

Email from Samsonite in response to my plea for help:
Dear Sir/Madam:
The following are the lock picking instructions you requested from Samsonite Consumer Relations.
1. Position the luggage so that the numbers on the wheel are
right-side-up as they face you and set all three wheels to “0′.
2. Starting with the wheel on the left, to the right of the wheel,
look into the narrow space between the right side of the wheel and
the body of the lock. Look down into the shaft. (If you have a
safety pin, straight pin, or thin nail file, place that in the
narrow space.)
3. While looking down into the shaft, rotate the wheel slowly. You
are looking for an indentation (a square notch). When you find
the indentation, stop and write the number down. (If you are using
a tool, the tool will fall into the indentation.)
4. Follow the process for the remaining two wheels.
5. Try to open the piece of luggage.
6. If the luggage still will not open, please try the following:
a) If the number on the wheel is over 5, subtract 5 from the
number showing. For example, if the number showing is 8 turn
the wheel to 3 because 8-5=3.
b) If the number is under 5, add 5 to the number showing. For
example if the number showing is 2 turn the wheel to 7
because 2+5=7. The numbers showing on the wheels will be
your combination.
If you still have a problem with the combination lock, contact the nearest authorized repair center to your zip code for repair assistance. Our warranty and repair information can be viewed at http://www.samsonite.com under the heading “Customer Service Repair Centers” for your reference.
We appreciate your loyalty and will continue to design products that are reliable business or travel companions.

Need parts to repair pan handle


I just had this problem! I took it to Ace hardware and the guys helped me out, big time. I have a PH-358 panhandle and the same piece fell of during a shoot into some brush and dirt outside.

We (they) fixed it using a #6 metric bolt and butterfly wing nut along with two grommets (3/8 ID and 5/8 OD). It worked perfectly! Not only does it hold the handle together but you can tighten or loosen the handle as well using the butterfly wing nut.
