I need to change the fuse on my Elinchrom 500 head....does it need a special key? I can't seem to open the holder which I believe is where the synch lead screws in. Help please! Am in the middle of a shoot... AManda

I'm guessing this is way too late now- but it's not near the screw in point for the synch lead. It's to the left of where the mains lead goes into the unit-a black plastic slide out panel with a fuse and room for a spare fuse too. It's the reason I keep a swiss army knife in my lights bag-for prising the plastic tab out without breaking any finger nails by using the screwdriver tool!

Model light not working in d-lite rx 4

Make sure the bulb is not broken, they tend to burn out especially at the highest setting. Next, check the fuse (that is part #3 in the picture). It may need replacing. You can follow the directions in the manual, available from the Elinchrom website, to do that. Be sure to scroll down to the Manuals section, they have a lot of information available.

Hi when I turn my high beam on it blows my head lamp fuse? But when I use the low beam works perfect whats wrong and how can I fix it

This can be due to two reasons and must be checked.
1. A possible SHORT of wire or holder contacts in the headlight holder. remove bulb and check.

2. Possible that the wiring to the relay is faulty or there is a short here or in the main switch inside the handle. You need to remove the switch disconnect the lead and see if the fuse fails so as to confirm.

Blown 100amp fuse under hood. main fuse. mazda 6 1993, cant get old fuse out

you need to remove the sides of the holder, when you do you'll see a small bolt on each side of the fuse,, these fuses have legs that get bolted down, I believe its a 10mm head on it,, take care when removing them, they disapear quickly as they are so small, and keep track of which wires attached to them go on which side

Acer LCD (AL1917W)

After removing the back cover screws that you saw, ok, there is a screw under the stand holder. Remove the cover that covers the stand holder joints. you can remove it using a flat head screw driver, it is removeable only it appeares stuck to the back cover. After you unscrew, use flat head screw driver and carefully by pushing to the side of the LCD bend. Carefull you might break the cover. Good Luck.
