there are two tiny mirrors behind the name plate, remove the lens and then the two small screws holding the name plate on. pull the plate off and try to find one of the mirrors that fell off. they are glued on but most often the top one falls off.
You may have to shake the camera facing it down. eventually it will get into the mechanism and jamb the camera.
if it did not fall out, take the screws off the bottom cover, remove to see if it fell to there. when found use contact cement to reglue the mirror back onto the mirror holder. the holder is just in front of the prism.

ASA setting for M645


It's not on the body but on the finder. Assuming the finder has one, it'll be on the right side (as viewed from the back). See pages 13-15 of the manual available from http://butkus.org/chinon/mamiya/mamiya_m645/mamiya_m645.htm

I have a red hue in my view finder and it makes it hard to see trough any thoughts ?


Remove the lens and then look through the viewfinder at a blank wall or out a window (not directly into the sun!). Do you still get the red hue? (Nothing will be in focus. Don't worry about that. We just want to see if the color is still there.)

How do i view the picture i want to take through both the viewfinder and the monitor?


Dear Mountainv444,

If you can tell me the make and model of your camera I can definitely answer this, but you may be able to find the solution in simpler terms by going to the support section on the manufacturers website.

I hope that this is the fixya for you and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely

I have the canon ti1digital slr and can't figure out how to get the view finder to show up on the screen


Set the shooting mode to a Creative Zone mode.
Press the button with the camera icon located northwest of the cursor pad.

Full details are in the "Live View Shooting" section of the manual (page 105 in my copy).

Don't know what buttons on back of camera are for.


Besides the auto-flash mode, you can select fill flash, flash off, self-timer, and nighttime-view with or without flash.
Press the MODE-SELECTOR BUTTON until the desired indicator appears on the LCD PANEL.
c3015.gif Fill flash and flash off modes remain selected after you take the picture. To cancel the selection, press the mode-selection button or close and reopen the lens cover/flash to return to the auto-flash mode.
Fill flash
c3014.gif When bright light indoors or outdoors comes from behind the subject (backlighting), dark shadows (especially on faces) may occur. Use fill flash to lighten these shadows.
  1. Open the LENS COVER/FLASH to raise the flash and to turn the camera ON.
  2. Press the MODE-SELECTOR BUTTON repeatedly until the FILL-FLASH INDICATOR appears on the LCD PANEL.
  3. Frame your subject within the VIEWFINDER EYEPIECE.
  4. Partially depress the SHUTTER BUTTON. When the FLASH/CAMERA-READY LAMP turns off and the fill-flash indicator on the LCD panel stops blinking, fully depress the shutter button to take the picture.
Flash off
c3013.gif When you do not want to use the flash, especially indoors where flash is prohibited, such as in theaters and museums, or when you want to take twilight scenes or distant subjects that are beyond the flash range, or capture the ambiance of existing light, use the flash-off feature. Use a tripod or place the camera on another firm support, and use high-speed film because the shutter speed in these situations will most likely be slow.
  1. Open the LENS COVER/FLASH to raise the flash and to turn the camera ON.
  2. Press the MODE-SELECTOR BUTTON repeatedly until the FLASH-OFF INDICATOR appears on the LCD PANEL.
  3. Frame your subject within the VIEWFINDER EYEPIECE.
  4. Press the SHUTTER BUTTON to take the picture.
Self-timer with auto flash
c3016.gif Use this feature to include yourself in pictures.
  1. Use the TRIPOD SOCKET to attach the camera to a tripod or place it on another firm support.
  2. Open the LENS COVER/FLASH to raise the flash and to turn the camera ON.
  3. Press the MODE-SELECTOR BUTTON repeatedly until the SELF-TIMER INDICATOR appears on the LCD PANEL.
  4. Frame your subject within the VIEWFINDER EYEPIECE.
  5. Press the SHUTTER BUTTON. The SELF-TIMER LAMP will glow and then blink during the last three seconds of countdown.
    • To cancel the self-timer selection before the shutter releases, close the flash.
    • The self-timer automatically turns off after the shutter releases.
Night-view with flash
c3012.gif In this mode, the camera balances the flash and existing light exposure so you can take beautiful pictures of people at sunset or at night. Use a tripod or place the camera on another firm support, and use high-speed film because the shutter speed at night will most likely be slow.
  1. Open the LENS COVER/FLASH to raise the flash and to turn the camera ON.
  2. Press the MODE-SELECTOR BUTTON repeatedly until the NIGHTTIME-VIEW INDICATOR with flash appears on the LCD PANEL.
  3. Frame your picture in the VIEWFINDER EYEPIECE.
  4. Press and hold the SHUTTER BUTTON for 12 seconds without lifting your finger. Note: If you remove your finger from the shutter button before 12 seconds, the shutter will time out immediately.
  5. After 12 seconds, release the shutter button to take the picture.
Night-view without flas
c3011.gif In this mode, you can capture the natural existing light of city-night scenes or fireworks at night. Use a tripod or place the camera on another firm support, and use high-speed film because the shutter speed at night will most likely be slow.
  1. Open the LENS COVER/FLASH to raise the flash and to turn the camera ON.
  2. Press the MODE-SELECTOR BUTTON repeatedly until the NIGHTTIME-VIEW INDICATOR without flash appears on the LCD PANEL.
  3. Frame your picture in the VIEWFINDER EYEPIECE.
  4. Press and hold the SHUTTER BUTTON for 12 seconds without lifting your finger. Note: If you remove your finger from the shutter button before 12 seconds, the shutter will time out immediately.
  5. After 12 seconds, release the shutter button to take the picture.

No power to my minolta x570


dniere,

are the leds lighting in the finder? if not remove batteries and clean contacts with pencil eraser to remove all traces of battery corrosion.
if the leds do not light then there is a problem with the flex circuit. get an estimate before repair as there are no new parts available for this model.

Could be many different issues.
What camera is it?
When you put a lens on it, is the view finder quite dark?

Battery problem with ETRS


On the AEII Finder, there are four contacts on each side of the finder and also the ETRsi body. Clean the contacts on both sides and see if this helps. Another test to see if it's getting voltage from the battery is on the body contacts(on top of the body where the viewfinder slides on). Take a multimeter (any multimeter) and touch the ground (black) probe to any place on the body except the contacts and touch the positive (red) probe to each contact on the body and see if there is battery voltage anywhere. If you get voltage that's close to the 3 volts from the battery, then it's good. If not, there is a circuit break between battery & body and this requires a repair shop because the camera would need to be stripped down to locate the problem. Be aware that the body battery supplies voltage to the Seiko Electronic shutter and the AEII prism. Hope this helps.

Viewfinder probs. on an old camera


The view finder and auto focus are two different things. The camera can work and the view finder doesn't. The view finder circuit board is probably burned out or has a some bad components. If you are good at electronic circuits you could take the circuit board out yourself and try to trouble shoot it. But your chance of success is nil. RCA no longer carries this camera on their website so help is not available unless you were to take it to a repair shop and then they may not be able to get the parts. Or you may get lucky and they can fix it. You should try that first. At least you'll know what it will cost to fix it. This camera is sold on EBAY, you might be able to get one cheap enough for spare parts. My suggestion: I thinks its time for a new camera. Unless of course you still love VHS.
