Question about Velbon SHERPA 200RF TRIPOD w/PH-157Q 3-WAY HD SHERPA200RF

Open Question

Velbon panhead PH-157Q

Very stiff panning. This happened quite suddenly. Feels like it needs cleaning and greasing - but I can't work out how to take it apart (I've removed side cap and small screw but can't see what to do next).

SOURCE: Need parts to repair pan handle

I just had this problem! I took it to Ace hardware and the guys helped me out, big time. I have a PH-358 panhandle and the same piece fell of during a shoot into some brush and dirt outside.

We (they) fixed it using a #6 metric bolt and butterfly wing nut along with two grommets (3/8 ID and 5/8 OD). It worked perfectly! Not only does it hold the handle together but you can tighten or loosen the handle as well using the butterfly wing nut.

SOURCE: How to remove pan head from velbon 530, it feels

I have the Hakuba HG-503MX which came with basically the same pan head you have already attached to the center column. First remove the center column from the tripod, with the pan head attached. Tighten the knob that prevents the pan head unit from rotating 360 degrees on the center column and gripping the head with one a hand and the center column near the plastic plate firmly twisting the head counter clockwise. The pan head will unscrew from the plastic plate which sits on top of the center column, given enough force. My pan head was also very tightly screwed onto the shaft, since it came already attached to the tripod. Hope this is helpful.

Broken quick release plate lever on Vanguard PH-32 3-way Photo Magnesium Alloy Panhead.


Unfortunately, Vanguard does not sell replacement pieces, you may have to ship it off to them in order to get it fixed. It's either that or you can buy a new pan head or quick release adapter. You can find those at www.tripodquickrelease.com, sometimes though pan heads don't come off of a tripod.
