Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Broken viewfinder eyepiece

Its not "broken" to where I cant see through it, it is just chipped along the top edge. It chipped while removing a right angle viewfinder. My question is "Can this be replaced?". I see two very small screws, one on each side of the viewfinder. Can I buy another viewfinder from Nikon and replace this myself?

I cant see through the Viewfinder its just all black but i can see on the led screen and i can switch the display to he view finder and see it fine , so is the viewfinder broken ?


It is not likely the view finder is broken, because it is deep inside the camera. There can be many reasons why you can't use it as it should. Did you know you can adjust the brightness of the viewfinder and the display separately? It is in the manual page 31. And if you are with the manual (still online available) have a look on page 16 too.
When the camera does not give the image to the view finder, it also could be an electronic problem, because switching in the camera goes along electronic paths.

I have just purchased a Nikon D60 and the viewfinder eyepiece always appear blurry prior to taking a photograph. Yet, when I take the picture it is clear and sharp so the picture is in focus, but prior to...


There's a diopter adjustment control near the right edge of the viewfinder. Look through the viewfinder at a blank wall and adjust this until the focus marks appear sharp.

I also wanted to repair mine but can't find the parts. So I guess I could sell you mine as I have just upgraded to a Canon 40d.

I need to replace a belt on my hotpoint dreyer how do i do it


Disconnect power.

Open the door and look along the front upper edge of the door opening. In the top left and right rounded corner of the door opening you will see screws going upward into the top. Remove both screws and raise the top.

Look down inside the open top dryer from above . If unbroken it should be showing across the tub from left to right. If broken you won't see a belt (about 3/8" thick). If belt is missing, proceed. On each left and right edge there will be a screw holding the front assembly to the case of the dryer. Remove 1 on each side.

The dryer front can now be pulled toward you about 3 inches at the top. Take the new belt and work it over the drum from front by lifting and rotating the drum. Lay belt on drum about 1/2 way back from front with groves down on the drum and proceed to reassemble machine by reversing disassembly procedure.

When reassembling the top, part of each underside edge of the top must go beneath a sheet metal lip located at each right and left edge of the dryer just below the control panel. If the small space between the side and top panels is wider at the back than the front you have not accomplished this alignment, try again.

Once you have the top and front back on, pull out the dryer and remove the small access panel at the back bottom. The belt must be "looped" around the motor and idler pulley like this ( http://www.applianceaid.com/images/ldrger-idler-pulley.jpg ). Slowly turn the drum around one turn to line up the belt, to make sure that it will not fall off because of being crooked or twisted.

I have broken the glass on the viewfinder of my powershot S3IS, can it simply to un-srewed and a replacement put in - if so where can I get one from?


If only the viewfinder glass is broken, you can put other one to replace it.

It could be glass but I do recommend you to replaced with an acrilic or a plastic part.

You can get it from different soruces: Ebay from a broken camera (S2, S3 or S5), or use transparent plastic film and cut it to the right size.

You don't need to open the camera completely. You will need just to remove the viewfinder rubber protector, and carefully, pull the viewfinder frame that holds the glass. There are four plastic locking tabs (two up, two down).

Best regards,

The prong that the battery charger plugs onto is loose/broken, how do i take the top off the laptop to do so?


Remove the keyboard first, there may be screws holding the case together under the keyboard.
Make sure you first remove all the battery and drives etc. there are usually screws in these areas that secure the case together.
The top and bottom parts of the case are held together by plastic clips. The best way to open the case is to start at an opening and gently spread apart the case until the clip releases and then continue along that edge and gradualy continue working along the other edges of the case.

Viewfinder broken


Is the viewfinder set to auto?

Auto turns it on or off when the LCD is flipped out to save energy. Look through your menus for this setting. If there's some problem the camera is having recognizing when the LCD is flipped out or not, this would solve not being able to use the eyepiece.

Nikon D70 Repair


Well, it depends on the extent of the repair. You don't necessarily need to repair the crack on the chassis, just the damage to the eyepiece components. Yes, it's worth repairing. Those D70s are just the right tool for people who want fine art pictures from a camera simple enough for a novice to use. The eyepiece is your most important resource when you're shooting, so you really want to make sure that it works as well as you do!

Sight target needs adjustment


I also had the same problem my Yardage Pro Compact 600. We live in the desert and I often leave my golf bag in the trunk of the car. One day the display on the rangefinder was shifted up so I assumed that the heat affected something. After checking with Bushnell, their answer was to ship it in and couldn't guarantee a cost.

So I also peeled back the rubber grips from the bottom - you only need to go far enough to unscrew the four screws. From there you have to snap apart the case so the top shell comes off (be sure to remove the battery and cover first). Once you've done that, unscrew the top circuit board (mine only had 2 of the 4 screws from the factory). Be careful not to unplug any of the 3 ribbon cables.

Move the top circuit board aside. Looking from the top front, there is an assembly at the back that holds the laser/reader, it is held in by 3 screws, 2 on the back left and 1 on the back right - remove them. Carefully remove the assembly leaving the 2 ribbon cables in tact. The 3rd (largest) ribbon cable is taped to the center sighting barrel. Gently remove the tape, the ribbon cable disappears into a **** in the back of the sighting barrel near the eyepiece, it is connected to the LCD display. Now flip the unit around and looking from the back eyepiece, remove the 2 screws near the ribbon cable. Now you should be able to lift the eyepiece up and away from the sighting barrel.

The ribbon cable and LCD window at the end of the cable should be glued on two corners inside the eyepiece (worse case the LCD is loose as mine was because the glue had deteriorated). First scrap out the old glue from the LCD and eyepiece frame, being careful to not let the remnants drop inside the eyepiece or you will see these in the viewfinder once you get it back together!

Using thick superglue and being careful not to touch the LCD and leave a smudge (or forget how it came out as your yardage display will be backwards!), put a tiny drop of glue on each lower corner of the eyepiece frame. Now carefully position the LCD window and push down to the bottom of the eyepiece frame. Try to center it left to right as near as possible (mine had a little gap on each side) while holding the LCD against the bottom edge. Keep it there until the glue dries.

Now reassemble everything, making sure the sighting barrel and especially the laser/reader assembly fits snugly in its cradle before reinstalling the 3 screws, then install the top circuit board. Snap the top cover back on and before putting the 4 cover screws in, put in the battery/cover and test it. Remember if your display is reversed you installed the LCD backwards!
