Change a bulb

I have a Bell & Howell 797 slide projector and when I turn it on the light doesnt come on. Need to change bulb but not sure how to release the old bulb to change. The projector has been in my mothers attic for years and would like to view the old slides.
Havent found the manual yet but everything else is in the original box.

Re: Change a bulb

Hi Janet,

Put on rubber gloves.
Hold bulb and push down and turn counter clockwise to remove bulb.

Maybe hard to remove, try spraying WD-40 first. MAKE SURE AC CORD(power cord) is disconnected. Wait a few hours and try to remove the bulb.

I need a operating manual for Sunpak Auto Thyristor G4500DX Flash gun only

I found this for a Sunpak flash which is similar to the G4500dx:

Reading from the "auto555/G4500DX" Manual, you need to:
1. Slide the Film Selector to desired ISO - (that is the same as your camera ISO used - so, make sure you turn Off the Auto ISO feature if your camera has one).
2. Slide the Mode Selector to "A" (Auto position). This will be Auto Thyristor mode on the flash.
3. Slide the Auto F/stop Selecct Know to desired lens openning - ( so use your camera in Aperture priority mode, more in Manual to prevent changes in the camera aperture value during shooting)
Shoot, and be happy with well exposed pictures by the Auto Thyristor features of the Sunpak 555 flash.
The Sunpak 555 works great with Nikon D50, D70 cameras, as you can synchrinize flash practically at all shutter speeds. Excellent for sunny days to get narrow DOF, yet get any ambient light level contribution as desired.
For other cameras, make sure (watch out for) that Aperture Priority mode does not use shutter faster than the camera max X-sync speed - so Manual camera mode could be a better choice for a novice photographer.
In the manual there is also a list of accessories for various brand cameras, How to use Power Ratio in Manual mode, some advice on using wide lenses, how to care of your 555, and Specification section.
Minimal flash duration is 1/450 at full power, so you can safely use Auto Aperture up to 1/500 sec. Flash duration decreases with lower power setting, or lower auto mode need for poser, and the shortest flash duration is 1/17000th sec.

My Metz 58 AF-2 isn't working, it still has all the lights and beeps but isn't flashing when you take the photo. I think it's the bulb but not sure on how I change this or if I can do it myself?

When you trigger a flash can you hear a high pitched sound (charging oscillator) or is muted? Are the batteries fresh? If indeed the discharge element is defective it needs to go in for repair or replace it.

Changing heads How does the 622 flash change its heads

The flash heads just plug into the unit. You slide off the normal head and slide in a different one. The pins also code the GN changes so the display on the back are consistent with the head used.

The ready light never turns green, it just stays red. Will not flash. Could it be that the bulb needs replacing, and can that be done by me? I have a wedding next weekend, and really need to have it by...

The ready light is not supposed to turn green,it only glows red.

For a start check the trouble shooting guide in the User Manual - page 84 - 86 to see if this helps.

The flash tube needs to be changed by a Nikon Service Centre

I can't make the flash work,

Are you don't know how to turn it on? Ever wonder what the on/off switch is for?
Slide the switch from left to right and wait for the 'ready' light to change from red to green...then it's ready to shoot.
