Mamiya RB67 Pro S: film counter does not advance, but the film does advance purchase another back same problem. Is there a switch that I'm missing??


If the problem is on the magazine's counter and if the spacing of frames is correct then the counter dial is loose. two screws on the outside front of the top of magazine, two screws in the film chamber hold the top cover. remove leather cover on winding lever loosen screw and remove. you can then remove the complete top housing to expose the counter mechanism.

Nikon s3300 lens alert showing after blurred image


hello,you have the classic quirk what is known as 'CAMERA SHAKE' you need to practice holding the camera VERY steady,do not stab at the shutter release,but just SQUEEZE the button,but without the slightest movement of your hands that are holding the camera,brace yourself on to a fence,or a wall(your back on to it) also adjust both arms to a 'V' position and place camera partly on your forehead,than lean partly on to a solid object,or nearby fence or wall with your back,keep practicing,as that is the only way for blurr free images, hope that helps, cheers.

Camera dropped an the lens broke off the camera


I have the same problem - the plastic bayonet lugs are the weak point on the lens assembly, but better that then breaking the camera body mating ring. I've dissasembled the rear of the lens and will try to reglue the two split lugs with cyanoacrylate glue. Be very careful not to mix up the 3 different types of screws, avoid damage to the multi-contact plate ribbon cable, and to not to loose the backfocus shims! Cheers.

17-85MM IS - mechanically stuck at 17mm - will not zoom -


Hi all,

I've had the same problem. So I decided to give it a try because I didn't find any solutions on the net. Unfortunately you have to pay pretty much for a Canon lens while the internal quality is pretty cheap, the whole mechanism is of plastic and this is also the problem. And after a while some screws will vibrate loose from the plastic components and canon could have done this better.

Probably within your lens is now one of the three zoom mechanism screws complete removed and you will notice that there is some abnormal movement in the zoom part. Unfortunately these screws are deeply mounted inside the lens and you need a lots of skill and patience to get it fixed.


First you need to completely disassemble the lens, and please make a picture of your lens after every step you make because I had to disassemble my lens 4 times! Because some of the elements was not right in place.

I will try to place a more complete description later today including some pictures.

Regards Gert

I have dust under outer lens on my 75-300mm f/4 -5.6 III USM


Front element? You can remove this without alignment worries. The lens zoom mechanism tends to **** in the dust.

Have a look at the front element outer ring. There are 3 black screws. Remove these using jewellers screwdriver (y'know, a very small posi-drive one!). Remove this plastic outer ring. Now you can see three small silver screws, that are about the same size - when you try to unscrew them, they just rotate...

This is as they are not screws, but as mentioned elsewhere - they are plugs (if you notice, they are slightly under the casing. Get a small flat bladed screwdriver, and gently prise them out. Now you can just drop the front element into something sensible - like a microfibre cloth (give it a clean whilst you're there.

Get a rocket blower (NOT canned air), and blow away the dust, and you can use the microfibre cloth (or similar) on the small inner front element.

Then replace the outer front element - you will see where it drops into place - there are plastic guide tabs. Push back the silver 'screw' plugs.

Then screw back on the plastic outer ring and you're done - takes 20 minutes at the most.

Dropped the lens, nothing broke but focus ring came undone


This will need technical service eventually. Try temporary solution with Sellotape or similar
