The head of the monopod has two mounting screws. The first, outer one, moves down to expose the smaller inner mounting screw (which fits my D70s).
Problem is that the outer mounting screw is jammed down into the frame of the pod. When I unscrewed the camara from the pod, the outer screw did not jump out again. Now its stuck and i'm afraid to use brute force and ignorance to force it out, fearing that i'll damage the threading.

If the monopod is slipping and getting shorter as you use it, then find the clamp that is not secure. flip open the clamp lever and using a small socket wrench, turn that nut about 1/8 of a turn. Test the slippage. if is still slips give it another 1/8 turn. Do this until is is not slipping. Do not over tighten the nut or you may damage the clamp or leg tube.
If it is the head, I will need more info as to which head you have on that monopod.
Each leg lock has a leg locking lever and a screw that hold the clamp assembly tight to the leg. Unlock the leg lock lever, loosen the screw above it that holds the clamp tight to the leg. The legs should fit into each other sice each leg is slightly larger or smaller then then next one. Slide the clamps in the approprite places and tighten the screw enough to hold the clamp assembly tight, but do not over tighten it. Over tightening will damage the 679 tubes.
As in most Manfrotto tripods this tripod should have 3 set screws underneath the head mounting surface. Unscrew these set screws and you should be able to unscrew the current head off the tripod by holding the center column and turning the head counter clockwise. Installation of the new head should be the reverse. I hope this helps!
