Oil spots on sensor 5d

Have these orbs showing up after using eclipse2 solution... inclined to think that it must be some of that factory lubricant i read about... am new to cleaning the sensor...was thinking of trying Smear Away solution...images appear as under exposed areas in shadows and darker areas in sky shot at f22...suicide is only slightly considered at this time...go ahead and push me over the edge...

Are you sure what's on the sensor isn't dust and not oil? Cleaning a sensor is a delicate operation though I've done it in the field where I had no options to save a shoot. If there is actual debris on the sensor and it cannot be CAREFULLY removed with a LIGHT, INDIRECT burst of air or a very clean, fine lens brush then I'd send it in to have it professionally clean. Canon has a fast turnaround time and pretty reasonable.

SOURCE: spots on images

spot is dust on the sensor. unfortunately, you will have to clean your sensor by yourself (it cost 30$ in a shop) There a fonction in the menu that up the mirror so you can access the sensor. very carefull. the pixel are so small that you can not see the dust but they are there!. caution, you need to put your body on a pod, have a good light to see what you make and some adapted items to clean the sensor. If not neede, avoid liquids. good luck and don't panic.

SOURCE: Under exposed pictures when using studio lighting with 5D

A black shadow at the bottom of the image is usually the result of using a shutter speed that is beyond the max flash sync speed of your camera. The max sync speed of the 5D and 20D is 1/200th. In a studio setting with wireless triggers there can be additional latency. Try using a shutter speed of 1/125th and see if that clears it up. You may be able to push it a little higher as pocket wizards are very good wireless triggers but don't use a shutter speed above 1/200th.

Spots on the display screen


Still not clear, what you mean. But take care wham cleaning a lens. Never use a fluid like alcohol. Use a special lens pen or the soft brush on the other side of a lens pen, when you think the lens is dirty. Spots, or disk, also can appear when light is entering the lens from an angle. Even the expensive Fuji X10, had orbs or disks on the pictures in certain situations. Like dark with one or a few sharp lights close bye. Try the camera in different situations, to make sure the phenomena is in the camera or just a strange rare occasion.
When it is caused by a defect in the camera, it should show on every picture.

How to take apart a signer 7430 model


You can remove screws bottom plate, however, unless you are mechanically inclined, I would take in for service. Lay machine back on soft cloth or old towel. Don't lose screws! Oil moving parts one drop good quality sewing machine only and use Singrr lubricant on gears. If you don't have oil or lubricant, you can blow hair dryer 1-2 minutes and put plate back on. Never oil or lubricate plastic parts! One drop oil on shuttle hook, Run scrap to distrubute oil before sewing on project fabric ! Jimmy

Mower was running fine until I went on a incline .It stopped and would not start again. It has gas.


Check your oil level and condition. Most new motors have oil sensors on them that turn the motor off if the oil level is too low or in bad condition (old). If the oil level is low and you go on an incline the oil that is in the motor will flow away from the sensor and it will 'think' there isn't any oil in the crankcase and cut the motor off. The sensors are usually on the back side of the motor so going straight down hill will cause the oil to run away from the sensor, if it's really low sideways tilting can cause the same effect. If this is the cause the motor should start fine when level.

Our Canon IR2200 model is making squeaky highpitched noices when it copies. We're thinking it needs some lubrication, any suggestions? PS. If oil is needed, where do we apply the oil and what type of...


Regular oil applications is a necessity in order to combat the squeaks of a copier, as for where to oil and what type of oil to use; I suggest going to radio shack (or similar) and picking up a pen-type lubricator, as it makes it much easier to reach tight spots and it is also rated for electronic use. Do not use WD40 or any other petroleum based oil, as this will cause vital components to breakdown and literally melt away. As for where to apply it, you may apply several drops to any gear, motor, clutch, roller; really there is no restriction, just anywhere that may have friction points. With this type of lubricator, you do not have to worry about destroying circuit boards, as only a small amount comes out and it is rather viscous so it will not drip.

Hope this helps,

We have a front loading dryer that is noisy and vibrates a bit when the drum turns during use. Everything else works fine. Thank you for this service!


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Sounds like you have two problems with your dryer, both are fairly easy fixes if you are mechanically inclined and cheaper than buying a new dryer.
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS

1...Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley. 2..Sounds like the front seal between the drum and the door needs to be replaced
If you have a front loading machine, Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt and front seal. You can now replace or reposition the drum seal if it has moved from its normal position. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor. Now is a good time to check the belt for wear. Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt. Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
