Extend the center column, there are 3 screws underneath that when unscrewed will allow the head to be tightened or loosened. The head is screwed on about 4 or 5 revolutions. You will need a flat head screwdriver. Take the center column out if you need to to be able to get to the screws.

The Tripod Head Pan and Tilt are EXTREMELY difficult to move.


Un;less something is caught inside the working parts, or there is grit inside, it should move smoothly. I would recommend that you send it in for repair. http://www.manfrottotripodparts.com/repairs.html

How should fluid heads be stored?


Alisa: With all 'video tripod heads'...., regardless if the are the original 'true' fluid heads (that actually used a liquid (oil) to achieve 'fluid' type movements) or a modern professional 'fluid' head (that actually uses a clutch mechanism like a cars transmission) or a fluid effect head like the Manfrotto #501HDV (which used nylon discs sandwiching a ball bearing race)...., always store with the pan and tilt mechanisms unlocked!!!! This means the camera platform should be positioned in the 'rest' position (not tilted forward or backwards), also ensure that any counterbalance mechanism is released so as to eliminate strain on the internal mechanisms!!!!
If you remember to do this and don't overload the head..., you will extend the life of your gear significantly

What fluid do i need in my 3066 tripod


they don't use fluid - maybe some grease in the tilt and pan of the head, but the tripod itself doesn't need any.. you might need an adjustment somewhere... I own 3 of these.

There's a wiggle when I try to pan side to side (so there's always a slight **** in the video). This is a fairly new tripod (Manfrotto 7321yb), so not sure if it's a defect, or something that I need to...


The first thing that comes to mind with this issue is that this is not a real video tripod. This is a still tripod. With that said you might just want to try to make sure the pan/tilt locks are fully unlocked, then move the head back and fourth quickly (without the camera attached) for a few seconds to actually warm up the head.
Hope that helps!

Can this be used as a steady cam


I have used a tripod as a steady cam by just extending the legs straight down, but using it like a pendulam. Works ok.

Head does tilt smoothly on 516. How do I get it smooth? Eric


Not fully understanding your question. You stated that the "head does tilt smoothly on 516. How do I get it smooth". What are you asking exactly? How to smooth out the pan as well, or how to make it tilt even smoother?

I'm trying to attach a Canon EOS Rebel XS to a Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod, but the tripod socket on the camera is too small. How do I attach them?


You need a head. The tripod has a standardized screw for accepting a tripod head, which is a larger screw than for the tripod mount on the camera. There are a variety of heads available, ball heads, three-axis heads, geared heads, pan-and-tilt heads, and more.

Here's a page showing Manfrotto heads:

Which head do i buy with the manfrotto 055xprob


Any head that matches your requirements. Do you want a ball head? A tilt-and-pan head? How much weight will have it to support? The tripod comes without a head because no one except you can decide which is the best head for you.
