Mirror 'lock-up' is one of the selections in the Set Up menu. Have you checked that?

How do I clean the laser mirrors myself? is there a manual or video that can show me how. i don't have the money to pay to have it done. the cheapest quote i have gotten is way more than i can...


Fist you need confidence.. then only you try it.. no video/manual for this, because of its no suggestible. Read once again & once again understand it then try it..

Open back cover & side covers.. two boards you will found at back side left one is formatter & right one DC controller. remove both DC & formatter, mark the connectors where you removed.
Remove the plate where DC & formatter placed,after that only you will find the scanner assm.
Two screws only protected to scaner assm, mark them where you removed.
Scanner assm: While cleaning the scanner assm must be wear glows..to avoid finger prints.
Remove the scanner assm cover(two screws) & shutter. Observe two motors with four reflecting mirrors, clean the mirrors & engine reflector sides(a squared metal part which was rotates along with the motor) with ear buds
gently. ( ear buds are good cleaning method) while fixing the unit back ensure that seated properly.. fix back every thing & do calibration.. check the print quality, if you failed to fix the scanner unit in properly, you need to do entire things once again.. Good luck..

1988 olds cutlass 2.8 v6 4sp trany seems to stick in overdrive. trany fluid looks and smells fine. also shifts fine going up.


Hello,
I have a Olds Cutless Ciera 1089 with the 2.8 MFI V6, and my car was stalling more and more coming to a stop. It would always start right up, but as soon as I put in back in drive many times would stall again. You can try to prove that it is the Lock up clutch converter solenoid which is inside of a side cover on the drivers side. I unplugged mine and the problem went away for good. Per a GM dealership shop tech, said It won't hurt anything for a while. He said it wasn't urgent to fix a sticking solenoid, for weeks or months, but should fix it sometime. You might lose some of the gas mileage from unplugging it, no lock up at upper speeds. Old school cars never even had these, and they were plenty problematic in GM cars, of getting stuck or staying sticky. Hope this helps.

How can reset my buffalo memory stick. I have tried to delete two folders from the stick. It keeps telling me files are protected. It has let me delete files from within the folders but not the folders....


Hi

Thank you for your query

Please try the following

1)Switch on the PC
2) Constantly press the F8 key until you get a startup menu
3) choose safe mode from the menu
4) Once safe mode has loaded up try formating the mem stick in this mode
5) If formatting fails in safe mode then unfortunaltey the stick is faulty and will need to be replaced

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank you again

My canon A1 shutter fires at all speeds, mirror seems to be stuck in the up position until the next frame is wound on, then the mirror stays down until the shot is taken. The shutter fires perfectly after...


Your shutter leavers are getting slow. They will fail soon, most likely the old grease is sticking. You can get a replacement body for $40 as repairs/cleaning will be $80+

Shutter staying open and only closing when dial moved to M90 or B


It sounds like your cameras need a CLA (clean, lube and adjustment). Occasionally when this has happened to me, i noticed that it was the foam on the mirror bumper that had gotten all deteriorated and gummy and as such the mirror would 'stick' to it when it flipped up. Changing the foam seals might do the trick.

Switching to M90 means that the camera is in Manual mode whereby it is not relying on the electronics at all in the camera. When your battery dies in mid shoot, you switch to M90 and you shoot manually at a fixed speed of 1/90 second. Of course your light meter won't have power, but if you meter manually or go by the 'Sunny 16' rule, you can adjust the aperture and get your shots.

Yes, moving the shutter dial to M90 should release the mirror back down, if it is stuck up.I'm assuming of course that you didn't manually set the mirror up anyway... Test it out with brand new batteries!

HLN4365W Picture goes askew and turns to black and white.


Hi...what you are seeing is the DMD board (digital Mirror display board) going bad. And if you leave it turned on like that it will damage the DMD mirror and freeze that picture into the mirror. It will look as if someone etched it into the mirror. DMD boards can be repaired and some cannot be repaired. The DMD board can be replaced. The DMD mirror can also be replaced too.

I have exactly the same problem, my unit has been sent to the service centre 3 times already and they still haven't fixed it. It appears to be a main board issue. I will send it back again for servicing and will NOT take it back unless the main board is replaced.
