The problem with this Sekor shutter units is that they become stuck by dirt, rust or grease and sometimes is impossible to fix it. In this model the lens unit can be seriouslly damaged if you try to charge it even it is so hard to move.

Saeco incanto del luxe coffee machine dumps coffee into waste drawer


Your brew unit may be set in the wrong position inside the machine if someone has had it out to clean or try to fix. The unit has two positions open and neutral when putting back into the machine it should be neutral. This is something I would try first. Now if it is in the open position you will need to reset it. Resetting is better explained on video so I have put a link for a Youtube video. This guy is great and guides you through step by step. Hope this works for you good luck. Please post and let me know.
Cheers

What are the best settings to use the Opteka 500MM Mirror Lens with a Pentax K-7. Also when you you add the 2.0X teleconverter with this lens?


These big lenses are very slow and cannot deliver much light to your camera. Obviously, you can't open the aperture any wider than f8 as specified by the lens itself. In the old days, most inexpensive cameras were fixed focus at f8 with a shutter speed of 1/100 sec. That's a good place to start with this lens without the doubler.

If the pictures are too dark, you can't open the lens any wider so your only option is to reduce the shutter speed.

That means that motion of the shooter or the subject will be more inclined to cause blurring so you need to be shooting from a tripod with a remote shutter release and/or a delayed shutter release setting.

If the test picture is too light, I would first reduce the lens opening to the next stop, f9 or f11, then shoot another test shot. You could also increase shutter speed, or both o reduce the light reaching the camera sensor. Keep shooting test shots until you get the exposure you want.

Once you add the doubler, you compound this situation because it will further reduce the lens speed by about 2 f-stops, meaning that you have to start your tests at f-11 at 1/100 sec. or f-11 at 1/50 sec. This gives you far less flexibility to properly adjust exposure.

Further, you will have increased the magnification so much that a slight breeze or a fly landing on the lens can cause vibration and blur the picture.

Before you shoot any serious pictures, you need to experiment with this lens so that you know exactly what its capability is.

Alot of times when i open some sites like "youtube


The internet uses something called DNS. It is similar to a phonebook for the internet, except instead of referencing people to phone numbers, it references IP addresses to webpages.
This error means that someone has purposely removed Facebook and Youtube from the listings in that "book" If you are at a school or workplace, you probably won't be able to fix this without help from a system administrator.
If at home, my suggestion would be to try another DNS Server, or "book".
This webpage explains how to set up an alternative DNS Server

Xbox360 will not read games


If your XBOX 360 is under warranty just send it back to Microsoft and let them fix it. If not, you need to find instructions on YouTube to disassemble your XBOX and then you will need a cotton swab that has two ends on it like the ones you clean your ears with. Use lens cleaner like you would clean eye glasses with or something that will not streak. Be very careful not to damage the laser. Gently take the swab with the cleaner on it and rub it around the laser lens in a clockwise motion about 3 times. Do the same thing counter clockwise. Now turn the swab around to the dry end and perform the same tasks in reverse order. So...you will use the dry end counter clockwise 3 times and then clockwise 3 times. Now put your XBOX back together and see if it has fixed the problem. There are a couple of other options to try as well but you didn't mention anything about it grinding so I did not post those fixes. Let me know if you need them.

numbers ;
but i do know for a fact its because there

My camra head fell off and now it will not stay on


Don't know if you still have the camera since this is an old post.

It's possible that something got knocked loose inside the camera when it fell. Also possible that that could be fixed but better left to someone who's good at opening up devices with small parts and putting them back together again.

There's a video on youtube (in three parts) where a guy takes one of these cameras apart to tighten the lcd screen and then puts it back together.

If you know someone who's good at that kind of thing maybe they could watch the videos and try to fix the camera.

Lens stuck


If the lens is not coming out, its stuck, or it wont completely open or close, that is the lens assembly, that needs to be repaired. You need to take it to somebody, that can either repair it or replace it for you. There is nothing that can be done, other than that......
