Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-80DX TTL Flash

2 Answers

I dropped mine and the diffuser flap and its black plastic hinge pooped off. They don't look to be broken so I just need someguidance on dismantling enough of the flash to reattach the diffuser. Now the flash won't switch on but I can hear the lens servo whirring as if trying to focus the lens back and forth.

    Thanks Mate - not the result I hoped for but no doubt realistic advice :-) One thing...I've now realised that the sound of the servo motor 'hunting' was due to weak batteries, not the lack of the diffuser flap. I bunged in a recharged set and the flash works fine, aprt form the lack of a diffuser.

Hi.

If you still need to take apart the Speedlight, the only service document available for download is here. It is not free, a small fee is asked for the purchase of the document.

Hope it helps.

Ginko.

It's going to be difficult to find the service manual for this unit, and Nikon simply recommends that the flash be serviced by an authorized dealer, and is due to the tight, sturdy construction of it's body. I never took one of these apart, but I have taken others apart years ago, and there were hidden screws beneath metal or plastic covers, and it wasn't straight forward, if you didn't wish to damage some part of it. You're going to be hard pressed to find a person who knows about this, since they're few and far between and not likely to be perusing the net on their time off. What I would do is simply take the flash into a reputable camera repair shop and simply ask them how to take it apart- you might get lucky and get enough advice to fix it yourself. Sometimes, if some tech isn't busy, they'll be happy to even do it for you if it's simple enough.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.

How do you fix a dm4 Hinge that is broke where it connects to the screen


You can buy hinges on ebay at:

http://www.ebay.com

Just type your computer make and model in the search followed by lcd hinges.

If the hinges are broken where the lcd screen connects to the base of the laptop then you will have to remove the screws from the bottom of the laptop and remove the strip that is at the top of the keyboard to get to them.

If the hinges on the side of the lcd frame is broken then you will have to remove the plastic strip that is around the lcd screen. Remove the plastic or rubber bumpers on the plastic strip then you will see screws to remove to remove the plastic strip. Then you will see hinges and screws on the side of the lcd screen that you can remove. Once you have them removed you can lean the lcd lid forward so that it drops in your hand. Don't let it drop on the keyboard, just into your hand and not too far because there is a cable on the back of the lcd that you don't want to damage. The cable can be taken loose from from the lcd at the back near the top if you like. Sometimes there might be a piece of tape securing it. If the lcd screen does not come out then there are screws on the 4 corners that is securing it and the hinges.

MF4350d gives a paper jam error when it has no paper in it.


I hired a technician who came to house and showed me where the paper jam was hidden... found technician on craigslist for $50 flat rate, came out on Saturday. He solved the paper jam problem in 20 minutes. One place to check for paper jam you cannot see until to look behind a hinged plastic flap above the cartridge area. Remove cartridge.Above the cartridge area is a width-wide plastic piece, about 1 to 1 1/2 inch wide from top to bottom, hindged along the top edge, moves but is attached along the two lower corners of the piece by small springs (one at each corner) to the housing of the machine. You cannot easily lift the plastic flap up to look behind it for paper jam until you remove the springs. I used forceps to remove them. Tweezers may work. Don't lose them! Once you remove the springs you can easily lift up the plastic flap (it is hinged) and look behind it into the crevices for any paper. That is where we found a small piece of paper. We needed a skinny forceps to reach into the crevice to get the paper out.

Ice dispenser has black ugly gunk from which the ice drops. It is the rubber flapper that opens and shut that is dirty. Question. can the rubber flap be removed to wash?


It;'s possible, but not recommended. The pin that holds the door into place is metal, but the hinges are plastic and have been known to break pretty easily. They do make a replacement kit in case you break the hinges, but that job is usually best left to a professional.
