Where can i get the wingnut/parts for a Sunpak 6600DX Digital Tripod


You can probably buy them at Amazon.com...as I had to order the micro XD memory card from them last week. Fry's and Best Buy do not sell them anymore because they are outdated already. But I think you will have better luck with Amazon. Please let us know if they have them. Good luck.

Why can't I find a replacement part?


Available replacement parts for Sunpack tripods are pretty much limited to new heads, mounting plates, or carry cases; take a look at what B&H Photo has to offer. You don't say what specific tripod you have, but I'd suggest a search at eBay where several are available at auction right now. Furthermore, a check of completed auction/sales shows both new and lightly used ones sold in the past month for between $10 to $50. Buy one for parts or use it as is. You won't find any part plus shipping for less than that.

Sunpack makes consumer not pro level tripods even though the term Pro may appear in some product names. When you buy a tripod that costs $400 and up without the head, you get more options for replacement parts. I have a Sunpack myself for lightest duty when hiking, but my main tripod is a Manfrotto with the grip head. The huge difference in cost makes a corresponding difference in what parts I can find online. When my Sunpack broke (in a different way than yours but equally unusable) I used gaffer's tape to hold it together until I could find a new one (on eBay for $15).

Good luck!

Cannot find way to attach new Pistol Grip head


Often the less expensive tripods do not have heads that are removeble and replaceable. On the Sunpak 6600DX you have teken the head apart, but there is no provision for putting on a new one because it was never made to take one.

My sdhc card shows a 'locked' icon when i put it into my gopro 2 recorder


SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Broken screw on top and plate.


Go to the hardware store and get an "Easy Out" and the proper size drill bit. This is a simple procedure and the salesman or woman, can explain the process to you ... You may want to take the tripod with you.

Simple.

Thanks for your question.

Did you grab the hand screw on the bottom of the head? Loosen it and the head will swivel to level.
