Extension tube connecting to d5100

Tube does not properly connect to camera

    Do you mean it won't fit mechanically? Or electronically? If the tube doesn't have the necessary electronics to allow the camera to communicate with the lens, you'll have to use it like a mechanical lens. Set the camera to the manual exposure mode and set the exposure yourself.

Most after market extension tubes do not have any means to link up with camera electronics,so need to be used in manual mode,but have you forgot a simple rule,all nikon cameras are bayonet mount(reverse to other brands) ??

Why commlite macro extension tube does not work with d5100

Not sure, but if you shoot in manual mode and use manual focus the camera should still take photos. Kind of defeats the purpose of spending money on auto focus ones though. Try to turn the top dial on the camer to M (manual) see what happens?

Operating nikkor 70-300mm f4.5-f5.6 with nikon d5100

No Nikon lens ever zooms automatically, so I assume you mean focus.
The D5100 lacks an autofocus motor, requiring the lens to have one. The older 70-300mm lenses lack this motor, expecting the camera body to have one.
The D5100 will only autofocus with lenses designated AF-S or AF-I. It will not autofocus with older AF-D and AF-G lenses.

How to use Nikon Pk-3 extension tube?

It should work with just about any lens, though it works best with moderate focal lengths (say about 24mm to 200mm). Its primary purpose is to let the lens focus much closer than normal.

When you say "no results," do you mean it's not letting you focus closer? Mount the tube on the camera, mount a lens on the tube, then focus the lens to its minimum focus distance. Looking through the viewfinder, move closer to an object until it comes into focus. Does it come into focus? How close? What lens(es) are you trying?

I have a extension tube stuck on my Nikon lens. It's not stuck on the camera body. It's stick on the lens.

There should be a button or tab on the extension tube at approximately the three-o'clock position as viewed from the lens side, about where you would see the lens release button on a camera body. Press this button or tab, then turn the lens clockwise, exactly the same way you would remove the lens from the camera body.
Without knowing the make of the extension tube, I can't tell you whether it is a button or a tab, nor describe it in any further detail.

When i connect my new stppo macro extension tube my d3000 says no lense connected, please help

Apparently the extension tube doesn't have the circuitry to connect the electronics in the lens to the camera. You will need to use the manual exposure mode, and you will get no exposure metering help from the camera. You can take a picture, review it, and adjust the exposure accordingly.

Water does not stop pouring from water/ice dispenser. Door-to-door GE Profile Refrigerator Model TFX22PPDACC. How to troubleshoot the problem? Or what part need to be replaced?

With the water running tube/pipe is cracked in between or its got loose from its fitting.First inspect the line for this problem.The tube from which water passes, one end is connected to the water valve at the back base of refrigerator.And then from valve two tube runs.One tube is for water dispenser and another tube is for ice chamber filling.Follow that tube from back of the refrigerator.The water dispenser tube That passes through the freezer door also.And the ice maker tube.That connects to the back of ice maker tray.The water fills in the tray.See if that tube is got loose and its not throwing water out instead of ice maker tray.Many a times this happens.--- May be you need to remove the ice maker to get exact location for tube setting and position.----------- But if tubes from water and ice dispenser sections are fitted properly and then there can be crack in the tube.------------But if tubes checked out ok then other possibility can be faulty water fill grommet.------- The grommet is cracked.And that is causing the leak.--------- Go to the back of the unit and remove the cover at the lower right of the unit. This is where the water line goes into your unit. Remove the water line at the solinoid that goes to your ice maker . This will allow you enough slack to remove the old water fill tube and replace it with the new one.
You need to push the white retainers in to release the tubeing from the solenoids.
The part you need is called fill tube grommet.It has to be removed and replaced.The tube is connected to the grommet. Click this link below for more help:---
------------ The other possibility for this leak, is water valve.The water valve close and open.When its open, it lets water to the tube.When it closes it stops water.But if the valve is not closing then it will let the water to enter non stop, slowly --- slowly the inside tube getw over filled and then starts leaking.------------ The water valve is not required as per the problem.But if after doing all the repairing, still the same problem, noticed then water valve is required.Because is water valve is not closing properly, then it leaks some water, (drop by drop) and this can cause water to collect in the grommet and this gets formed into ice and the same leaking repeats.---------but at present dont buy water valve.Just keep an eye on this same problem.sometimes leaking will start after few days.In that case also replace water vale.------- Now for other parts, that are extension hose,icemaker tube and clamp.Out of this you will require clamps, sometimes while removing old tube the clamp gets can buy this.The extension hose is required if the tube is getting short or actual hose is cracked in between.i dont think you will require extension hose at present.And for ice maker tube.This tube can also be cracked and cause leak.this tubes by time gets bit swollen and loose its grip.Its actually not required.But if you still replace it, that it will be good.--------so you can order clamp and icemaker tube with the grommet part.----------- The parts which you want to order, this is direct link for parts:-- 1. Dual Inlet Water Valve------------ (
2. Icemaker Water Line ----------
3. Icemaker Fill Hose Extension ----------

A fill tube clamp for the fill tube grommet----------------
( ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Lens error, restart camera

It is more than likely dirt on the lens zoom extension tubes, try looking for any dirt or obstruction when the lens is extended ( if it will open) if not try using a vacuum cleaner suction tube NOT FULL STRENGTH YOU MUST LIMIT THE VACUUM. insert a small tube into the large suction end and seal it with your hand then run the small tube end around the lens extension. Remove the battery for 15 minutes then replace, if still not working then you will have to send it back to Canon for repair.

Water tube extension

it sounds like the water inlet valve is bad. if it slowly leaks it will cause the water to freeze inside the inlet tube extension blocking water from entering the icemaker and it could leak around the extension tube. after freezing solid the tube may have a crack in it as well. so replace the water valve and take out the inlet tube and extension tube and inspect it for cracks and make sure they mate properly (you can glue them if you want but it might make it harder to clean out if you have the same problem again). a clamp or tie strap may help.
