The short answer is "you don't"! Take it to a professional camera repair man. If you try to fix it yourself, you will quickly end up with a table full of parts and no way to put them back together. Typically, lenses are made like complex jigsaw puzzles. If you try to fix it yourself, you will fail and it will cost substantially more to have it repaired then it would if you had not tried to repair it yourself.

HOW TO PUT Fotodiox 49mm Filter Thread Macro Reverse Mount Adapter Ring for Sony E-series


The ring threads onto the front of any lens with a 49mm filter thread, just like a filter. The front of the lens then fits onto a camera body, effectively mounting the lens "backwards" or reversed. With most lenses, this allows the lens to focus very close, for close-up or "macro" photography.

How can i get my kalimar auto zoom lens fit my canon eos 650


Don't know but I just bought a kalimar 135mm f2.8 lens on eBay and it has a threaded mount that is not T mount and is not M42 mount? I am hoping there is an adapter somewhere out there as it seems like a very well made Japanese lens! If you figure it out let me know?

Can I use one nikon d5100 with one sakar mc zoom 80-200 No. 803489


If your lens has a Nikon mount then yes, you can use it on the D5100. You'll have to switch to the Manual exposure mode and you won't get any exposure help from the camera's light meter.

My hand towel ring is loose. The wall mount is secure but the ball that holds the towel ring and connects to the wall mount is loose and looks like it could fall off.


Usually there is a set screw in the side of the wall mount. If there is loosen that and take the towel ring down. There maybe a second nut or fastener you can tighten up the ball with. If not just buy another one. Some just get worn out over time its normal.

Elevation adjustments do not seem to hold or the scope moves slowly over time. I'm not certain. Windage works fine. Looked at manual on the web and the scope must have changed design because not...


Most of the time a scope that creeps off its zero, has a loose mount screw and or loose mounting ring. Check the mounts all screws. Some times the opposite is true. The mounts are to tight and in a bind. Then during firing the receiver heats up an tweaks the scope enough to cause creep. If the scope is always on zero when cold and creeps off after a few shots, she is in a bind. Make all adjustments to the scope base and rings with a cold gun. Loosen the front ring screws first then re-tighten then loosen the rear doing the same. Then try and re-zero the gun. If the gun never comes back to zero, you end one day shooting hi to the right and try again the next day shooting in the same spot try to re-tighten all screws. Screws from mount to gun then scope rings to scope body.

Plastic fan cowling ring is loose, strikes fan blades


No. Removing the ring probably won't significantly affect cooling, but the misalignment indicates either a missing or loose mounting screw or a bent or broken tab. The problem is more likely the fan mount; failure to properly repair the problem will invariably lead to additional, more severe problems later.

ROKINON AUTO ZOOM Macro--- HELP to enable macro


Some of the Rokinon (and other ) zoom lenses could only go into MACRO at certain focal lengths- the lens you have "zooms" from 80 to 200 focal length,but is that done by "sliding" a ring forward and back on the lens, or by twisting a different ring that the one that focuses?

70-300 DL Sigma Macro Zoom lens element loosened, and then reset


amaizin, That's not really normal, because you might only normally hear a tiny noise if you shake a lens not mounted on the camera, but not loose glass sound, everything is fixed and solidly set for alignment when focusing if any element is loose it could never be able to get a clear focus and the element would be so scratched there would be all kinds of distortions even if it went "back into" place. You'll hear loose glass after you drop a lens on to the sidewalk or hard surface and an element is dislodged. Inspect the lens body for an impact mark a lightened portion in a ring shape where the metal or plastic has been stressed or the telltale signs of an abrasion from something like a hard rough surface such as concrete (a little group of pin **** on a corner). The lens should be inspected by a reputable shop to determine if it needs to be repaired or replaced. I take it that you were selling it to upgrade to another lens or other equipment. randy320sgi

Nikon D40 I bought a set of macro lenses that said they were compatible for the d40 but i cannot figure out how to fit them. They are 52mm lenses - should i have bought an adaptor or something? where...


Macro lenses are mounted to your camera body in place of the lens you currently have mounted on the camera. If you bought the camera with the lens already mounted you may not have realized that the camera and lens are 2 separate objects. To remove your lens see page 8 in your user manual for instructions and an illustration. If you don't have your user manual handy, you can download a PDF file from NikonUSA Here.

If what you bought are macro rings, they go on the camera, then your regular lens mounts onto the ring. You can use one or more of the rings between the lens and camera to produce different macro settings.

If what you bought are macro filters, they screw on to the front of your lens. If you have a UV filter on your lens you need to remove that before you attach another filter.

Canon EFS17-85 mm Image Stabilizer Lens stuck in Macro mode.


The USM focus works by applying pressure to a set of rollers. That pressure is achieved with a large diameter spring washer. It is held in place by another large diameter flat washer that on assembly is rotated 60 degrees to lock it in place. If the lock washer has moved due to mechanical movement (ie rapid manual movement of the focus ring) it could unlock and then all pressure to the USM motor parts and rollers is lost giving the loose feel you mentioned.

You will need to dissassemble the rear of the lens to see the USM motor parts, rollers and locking ring to reattach it. Follow the links at my pbase gallery to see the dissasembly. When I took my lens apart the focus and USM motor went all loose and I wondered how could it work ever!!!. The locking ring was off which sounds just like your fault. http://www.pbase.com/barry_2718/efs1785mm I also have a flex cable cracked which is a much harder fix. Take careful note of the parts (mark then with a felt marking carefully) to achieve a reassembly exactly as removed.
