You'll want to apply some of the oil on the outside of the blades and if possible - detach (the way you would when you clean your clippers) and put a few drops of oil where the spinning rotor from the rotor goes into the bottom piece with the blades of your clippers. When you run out of what they give you - Try INOX - it's a completely non-toxic machine grade oil. Available through Ace Hardware or you can google the product name: MX3. INOX - MX3. Ask for it in the 60ml needle bottle. Hope this helped.
Take your camera and carefully look at the lens side of it. Does the lens look slightly out of center. Sort of pointing very slightly the wrong way. If it is you've given the lens a knock while it's been extended and put the complete lens barrel out of alignment. Please don't try what I've seen touted around the Net and bash the camera lens down on a table, this will make the whole thing completely unusable. The camera needs stripping down completely and the lens either realigned or worse, completely replaced.
The other problem it could be is a piece of grit or sand jammed between the lens elements or the lens and the camera body. Again a strip down job to free the jam.
Just make sure the batteries are at full charge and in good condition if they are getting a bit old try a brand new set of High quality alkalines and see if things start moving then. Quite often the camera may switch on but simply doesn't have enough power to drive the lens. Try the batteries first, you could save a packet.
Hi A5 blades are not made to be unscrewed. They are snap on blades. You can call 800-830-3678 which is Oster Direct consumer service. They will walk you though the process or you can send them back to Oster and they will put them back together and realign them for you. Hope that helps.
This is always a problem with clippers, it's just a matter of holding the blades tightly in place and getting the screws in as tightly as possible without letting the blades go. This has always worked for me in the past.
lol This is unfortunate! I set these day in, day out, you have the right idea. Use the lever to push the cutter all the way forward, then push the comb down using your work surface, then use you free hand to tighten the screws. If your clipper is in factory condition this will have aligned them perfect. Give up? May or may not be wiorth it for you but try www.sheareaseltd.com Get postage details there, send your clipper to them (I work for them), pay the postage for them to get there, put a note in your box to Ash, asking me to align your blades, and I'll sort it for you but I'd have to charge return postage at £5!
Hope this helps!
if you put oil on the blades does it help if you remove the blade you should see the pivot what make the blades moves hair preventthe blades from moving freely after if it still weak motor is weak not mush to do with that pricewise better by andnother one cheers
