Focus error finepix hs10


About the HS10 autofocus problem, I discovered the cause and solution. It is a problem of camera design, and is caused by three screws securing the CCD sensor. These screws are not properly secured and the vibration eventually dropping.
In two cameras with the same defect, the screws were loose. These screws adjust the sensor position relative to the lens and the sensor is loose when out of position not allowing proper focus.
The solution is to disassemble the camera and secure the screws.
These screws can not be too tight they need to be adjusted to position the CCD sensor correctly. The camera is difficult to dismantle because several wires are soldered.
Care must be taken to discharge the capacitor of the flash, this may cause an electric shock and burn the camera board.
Those who want to try the repair, follow the link to the service manual.

D60 error press shutter release button


Here's what I found on the Nikon forum and it also works for D60 Digital Camera.
Get a very small cross head screwdriver (watchmaker size)
A can of WD40
Sticky tape
A good light

Remove the Battery and SD card
Open up the bottom of the D40x putting the small screws onto the sticky tape in order of removal.

You know the camera well, so you know where all the screws go.
Remove the metal plate (used for the tripod mount, you will need to remove the back of the D40x as well, it's only 2 screws)

Now look at John C Ayr's pic of the D40xwww.flickr.com/photos/johncayr/3969534234/

Spray a SMALL amount of WD40 onto the red and white gear wheels.
(Don't use so much that it drips down onto the optics, you don't want oil in there!!!)

Put the battery in and hold it down to make contact, put in the sd card and switch on the camera and try the shutter button. (switch it to manual focus or it might try hunting around for ages for focus)

It might start working, if not move the red wheel a few stops and try again.

Once it's lubed up and the wheels move it should be ok.
Keep taking pics until you feel it is ok.

Then reassemble following the screws backwards on the sticky tape.

Hi experts. my D80 with AF-S Nikkor VR lens refuses to AUTOFOCUS. When half pressed, the focus just shifts wide / close unable to latch onto anything - and I cannot complete the shot. Manual mode seems to...


Hi, first try cleaning the contact lens and body (off Camera & Without bat.) isopropyl alcohol.
Do you hear any noise in the lens when you focus on auto?
If your answer is yes, maybe the SWM has been stuck and not turning.
If you have the tools and you can carefully try to disarm it by removing the screws holding the lens connector 2 screws, then holding the back cover ring 3 screws and it comes out, you let the sw AM VR on / off, and eventually take away the bayonet unscrewing the screws that hold it.
Remove the cover and can you see

There may be some connection misaligned flexible connectors.
SWM bad.
Electrical bad component.

I hope will be usefull.
Best reggards

Dear Sir,I would like to ask you to help me with determination of old Carl Zeiss Jena binocular 15x50. If you send me e-mail adress I can send you photos. I can not find similiar piece 15x50 in the Zeiss...


Carl Zeiss Jena is East German manufacture, that is why you don't find it in the Zeiss catalogue (it isn't Zeiss). It is also almost certainly post-war, as there was no East Germany before WW2.

Carl Zeiss Jena made inexpensive optical equipment for export to the West. The optical quality was fairly high, but not as good as the West German Zeiss, and the finish was less good.

I dropped my Binoculars and the lens are out of focus with each other. Can you help?


Your binoculars either have a bent or broken yoke assembly (the bit which carries the eyepieces) or one or more prisms have came unseated. It's not uncommon to have both faults after dropping binoculars.

The first repair involves replacing the entire yoke assembly: the part is expensive in comparison to the retail cost of a new pair of binoculars and with labour charges on top is not usually a cost-effective repair except on high end models which cost in excess of around £250

The second repair is straightforward and fairly quick for anyone with the right collimation equipment (in effect, a professional repairer), but the screw(s) usually need to be secured with thread-locking liquid afterwards to prevent them working loose.

Either way, you need to decide whether to send the binoculars for a repair estimate or to replace them.

I hope you manage to use this information to fix your binoculars or at least that it assists you to choose your next course of action. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

Focus error


You will have to disassemble the unit. 2 screws on 1 side and 1 on the other and 2 on the bottom, pop the back off, being careful of the 2 ribbon cables attached to the rear and unock these cables and remove. 3 screws holding the top circuit board (remove the eye piece first and unplug the 2 cables attached to it) carefully unplug all cables attached to this top board and unscrew and remove (there is one on the bottom of the board that you must flip to unlatch. After you remove that board there is the power board... BE CAREFUL!!! The flash capacitor (the black tube looking unit on the bottom of this board) stores chrge and you WILL feel it if you touch the terminals... it they touch metal you will see fireworks so be careful. unplug the single red and black wire plug and unscrew the 3 screws here You do not have to remove the white plug with the 4 or 5 wires because you can just flip the board over out of the uni.. BE CAREFUL!!. unscrew the 2 silver screws securing the metal plate underneath and remove this plate. now remove the single screw left and pull out the lens assem. Here check 2 places... 1 is he zoom screw (it is behind the long silver panel) and also the focus screw (behind the shorter metal panel. Do one at a time. remove the screws from one of them and carefully lift off the motor plate. for he zoom line to metal ring on the screw into the groove of the lens (Shaped like a V) carefully screw the screws back in bu d ni tighten to tight, leave a LITTLE slack. (1/8 turn from tight). Now for the focus screw, remove the cover and align the ring to encase the top of the V The ring is shaped like < the lens is a > so just allow the rinng on the screw to "pinch" the top of the lens groove. secure like you did the other plate (dont forget to back out 1/8 of a turn) reassemble the opposite of disassembly and you are done... it look hard but it is actually pretty easy... any uestions email me at worldin1@gmail.com

I'm getting double vision in my Nikon 10X50 Lookout II binoculars. This is the second time in about 2 years. They have been excellent for many years ad I really don't want to buy any more at this time. ...


Hi cmbaldwin,
Double vision is caused by misaligned collimation,
Make sure all segments are screwed tightly together.
including the screw under the little cap on the center hinge.

If none of the above fixes it, you probably have a misaligned prism In the binoculars. That unfortunately is a factory fix.
I would call Nikon customer service on the phone,
Tell them you love their product, but are very, very, frustrated with the same problem repeating itself ( I hope you haven't dropped the binoculars)

If you get nowhere, ask to speak to the customer service manager, explain the problem all over again.
If that will not resolve it. Ask them them if they have a trade up program.
Never hurts to ask.

As you say, they are a outstanding company to work with.
and let them know that you won't settle for anything less than a Nikon. They do want you as a lifelong customer.

Don't get frustrated, just keep jumping through the hoops until you get the problem resolved to your satisfaction.
Good luck and best regards, Paul

Lens is loose from body


One note on this fix. There are four screws that need to be tightened on the lens. With the cover off and the lens pointing straight forward, there are three small screws visible. After tightening them, rotate the lens upward to expose the fourth screww. After that one is tightened, you can then replace the cover and six cover screws.

Please help - camera will not focus


It's the focus motor gears. They have been knocked out of alignment, and the noise is the tiny focus motor spinning. The lens will need to be disassembled to fix it, but it is fixable...unfortunately, you probably won't get help from Casio.

Dismantling procedure for camera


Oh how fun, yep when I dismantled one of my old dead kodak digital cams - same thing, I'd removed all the screws but still struggled to open it up. Yes, the body is also "snapped" together with a couple of fittings. And after much futzing & prying, yah me. Holds up 2 plastic halves & one former camera guts. Yea was a good camera, it had lived a long & happy life, even after the super cheapo battery compartment door fell off, um, after being dropped maybe.
