Okay my holga flash was broken too....the batteries were working just fine cus when i turned it on, the little back light came on and the whining sound happened, but then click...no flash! so i took the back off and made a small repair and it worked!

so this is how to fix it (if its the same problem...i.e. everything electrical is working but the actual flash):

use a small screwdriver to remove the two small screws inside the camera (take out the frame and they are on the bottom and top). the front will pop off and you should be able to see the wiring.

where i circled in red was the problem. that curved metal piece at the bottom was too straight and was not making contact with the shutter (the top little metal prod sticking outta the circle) when i clicked it. so just bend it forward to how it looks in the picture...then do a practice click to make sure it makes contact. you can even try it with the batteries in, but be careful!! its electricity!

hope this helps!!

Same problem with mine. i think maybe a soldering iron and the flash setup from a disposible camera should work, but havent tried it yet. :-I

Same problem with me. i took mines apart and it looks like everythings fine. im guessing i blew the capasitor or something. seems like an easy fix with some parts from radio shack though.

Brush won't spin when carpet cleaner is running


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner brush is not spinning, the brushroll bearing might be jammed. Try removing the brushroll assembly and cleaning all hair, string, lint, etc. from the brushroll bearing. If that doesn't solve the problem the brushroll may need to be replaced.

Hi! I've just bought a Lomo LC-A on ebay, and it seems that the shutter doesn't work properly. It opens and closes, it doesn't get stuck, but there's only one click, even when I put it in...


It's got ONE speed - 1/100. It's designed to use ISO100 speed, outdoors in daylight, or with flash, using sunny 16 exposre. These are incredibly basic machines similar to Holgas and Diana's. 1 or 2 f/stop choices, 1 shutter speed, maybe a flash connection.

I accidentally broke the battery chamber on my Fujifilm Z33wp camera, were can i get a new one, and also the flash doesn't work, what can i do to fix the flash


In my experience regarding the flash; make sure to check the settings of the camera that you did not deactivate the flash. It is usually a lightning bolt symbol displayed in the lcd screen; it is usually activated in full auto mode. If you do not see the lightning bolt or the symbol with the lightning bolt crossed out this also means it is deactivated.

If the camera still does not fire the flash then you may need a repair and the authorized FujiFilm service center that I deal with is Photo Tech Repair Service in NYC. www.phototech.com They can also probably get you the battery door that is broken. Contact them and tell them you were referred by Paul

Good Luck

In my holga 120 cfn the flash doesn't go off when i press the shutter. the batteries seem fine and the orange light turns on, but when i press the shutter nothing happens. a couple of times it has worked,...


The flash would fire as per the requirement, in auto mode.

If the ambient light is enough then the flash will not fire.

In case you need to use the flash in bright conditions (e.g. For using as a fill flash) please repeatedly press the flash button (The one with the lightning symbol on it) till you get a lightning bolt symbol on the camera display.

Now your flash will fire on every shot that you click!

Please ensure that you revert back to the Auto mode once done.

If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

Check the starter mounting bolts.. If greasy remove and clean them 100%
The bolts serve as a ground to operate. another tip.... If you have a big block engine a remote starter bracket should be attacted as well. Its a torque brack to prevent the starter fron twisting causing the drive housing from cracking.

Film problem for my holga


Black film as in underexpose, after you have them printed?

If you open a roll of 120 film:
Remove the little tape holding to the film.
Place film onto Film Spool Studs.
Pull film out from film leader and thread to Take Spool.
Turn until Arrow Line on film aligns with Start Mark of Film Holder.
Close film cover or back.
Advance camera to Zero (0). Now you are ready to shoot.
Just rememer what film speed your are using.

Hope they are helpful.

Truly,
