Question about Photography
. I can't tell if it is missing a piece or what. ive tried everything i can think of but it seems to almost be missing a piece. the manual instructs you to use a coin to unlock it, but there is nothing where a coin would even fit into it is just a flat circular thing w threads inside as if something once screwed into it.

This is a Sears make for the Ricoh model of a similar name. The manual at http://www.butkus.org/chinon/ricoh/ksx-p/ksx-p.htm has a battery grip. The battery grip has two contacts that provide power to the body by two contacts. If these contacts are rusted, as the camera is from the late 70's, both sides need to be cleaned or the electronic shutter won't work. So if you do not have the small grip where 3 AAA batteries fit. You are missing the battery grip. Finding one would be impossible, you would have to find an identical camera just to get that grip.

SOURCE: Can't open battery compartment.
there are two ways to fix this.
1- remove the bottom cover, take the rubber seal off from the battery compartment, remove the battery then soak the bottom cover in vinegar overnite. this will remove all corrosion. remove the battery cap and clean the threads. completely dry the cap and bottom cover, apply WD40 to battery cover threads. clean battery contact with pencil eraser ( carefully ). reinstall the rubber seal, replace bottom cover.------ best fix.
2- this may not work but it's worth a try. just apply ( carefully ) WD40 around battery cap and let it set for about an hour, re-apply and wait another half hour. If this doesn't work refer to # 1

You need to widen the gap between the tabs. This will allow the alternator to slip over the bracket much easier. Get a socket big enough to allow the threaded insert to be driven inside it. (18/19mm) Then thread the bolt in a few threads and give the bolt a few taps with a hammer until the threaded insert moves about 1/8" or so. This will allow the alternator to fit easily in the bracket and the insert will be pulled back in as the bolt is tightened.

None of these TVs have any problem removing the stand.
Stands for 32'' and larger TVs plug into the TV's body and are attached by 4 to 8 bolts that go through the cover, then through the plugged-in part of the stand and attach to the internal frame.
In most cases the bolts are 4 - one for each ray of the fork that goes into the TV.
Since bolts for the frame are metal bolts and bolts for the plastic back cover are usually wood-type screws (sharp on the top, wider thread) you can visually tell the one for the stand from the rest.
Look right above the stand for four, six or eight symettrically placed heads that are different from the ones you see on the corners.
Once you unscrew those the stand should feel more flexible and you can simply pull it back.
In order to do all that you have to have the TV laying on its face or back.
Watch out if it's heavy - you may need to support it towards the end of the operation. It's unlikely for it to get damaged if it falls down, but you still don't want to try your chances.
Giving it a little lift also helps unscrew the last bolts...otherwise all the force of the TV is pressing against it...and that makes it harder to unscrew.
