Eyepiece (clear plastic) replacement

The camera was dropped and the thin, clear plastic piece (about 2 cm x 1.7 cm) that is used to look through was broken. Is the part available, I have disassembled the assembly around it or is only the entire assembly available.

My HP Photosmart Wireless e-All-in-One B110 series is displaying a "printer ribbon error". is there a way to reset or fix this easily? Thanks.

There are a few possibilities. Is this the encoder strip, a thin mostly clear piece of plastic about 1/4" wide, 13" long and the thickness of a piece of paper? Another possibility would be a ribbon cable, a white flat cable about 1/2" in diameter. Neither of these are easy to replace but if you provide more details I may be able to help.Or Still having Problem Then follow Us For

Is there an adapter so I can fit my 2"Collimation Tool into my .965" eyepiece holder on my telescope

There are adapters, but normally a 2" collimation tool is way way too heavy for a .965 eyepiece holder. Most of the eyepiece holders are made from plastic, and they break fairly easily, so you take a big chance of your 2" collimation tool dropping to the floor or concrete. Even if the plastic did not break, the weight of the collimation tool would bend the eyepiece holder out of position. It only takes the slightest amount to make your test worthless - after all, you're after precision. Bending or distorting anything destroys the precision. They do make 1.5" collimation tools, and there are adapters to get from the tool to your eyepiece holder. They also make things called "cheshire eyepieces" and regular collimating tools which will work with your 4" reflector.

What can I use to repair a small hole in my coleman air mattress?

Hi rh57...

I will recommend that you use some contact cement, and a piece of thin plastic like a plastic drop cloth, shower curtain, etc.
Cut the plastic piece that will be using as your patch about 1" X 1" square.
Locate the hole in the air mattress, deflate air mattress, apply contact cement lightly to the air mattress approximatly 1" X 1" and the piece of thin plastic material you will be using as the patch over both entire surfaces of the patch and mattress...let it all dry about 20 mins.
After it is dry then apply the patch to the hole in the mattress, apply a weight to the top of the patch, let sit about half an hour and you are done
Hole fixed
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

I have 2 canon AT-1s. I was setting the exposure on one of them, and the circle indicator on the light meter came away. I am ok with using a light meter, but would prefer the camera was in factory working...

Set camera at bulb/3200 ASA to remove top cover. Remove cover on front first to get to two hidden screws. Carefully remove the shutter speed/asa dial. It connects to a round plastic piece with a cutout. This piece is connected to a tungsten wire that goes over a series of pulleys around the eyepiece to the rewind side of the top, then through another series of pulleys down the side of the mirror box. Even if you are an experienced tech if the wire comes loose from the side of the mirror box, it is a royal pain to put back.

Now, if you can see the lollypop (what the circle is called) and it is still attached but not moving, then this wire may have broken, or if the camera was shocked, it may have come off of one of the pulleys and jammed. If it is floating free around inside the viewfinders, then the circle has come unglued.

You will have to unsolder the flexible circuit on top below the top cover and then remove the prism to get to the lollypop. If the tungsten wire has come loose from one of the pulleys you may be able to put it back in place. I usually carefully remove the plastic piece and wire from the eyepiece pulleys keeping slight tension on it and then tape it to the film door so it stays in place.

Canon Pixma MX300 printer had a paper jam. I took out the paper, and it was all there with no missing parts. It continues to say there is a paper jam - there appears to be no reason for the jam. I...

Try checking that a foreign object is in the paper feed rollers- do this by inserting a thin piece of plastic about 2 cm wide through the rollers from the paper exit side. Plastic like that from a shirt box (about 2cm wide by 20 cm long and 1 mm thick works well. I have solved this problem many times with my mx300 and it clears out objects which have droppped into the paper feed, such as Pens , yes pens. and paper clips etc which are otherwise hard to detect on this printer.

Shutter closes half-way

There are many factors that may cause this, so you have to follow each by each under certain conditions:

1. If you have drop the camera recently.
- Disassemble the camera, remove the outter frame (but keep the camera inside body intact). Turn on the camera and look at the shutter neck. Check and see if there is any abnormal shape, is most likely that the thin aluminum casing at the front of the lens got bent and you may be able to bend it back with a thin screw driver, that you can manage to insert between the plastic casing of the shutter and the aluminum cover.

2. If you do not drop the camera however have used the camera for a while.
- Disassemble all parts and clean the camera. There may be dust, sands, or other objects that is in the way of the shutter motor that caused the gears disengage.

Good luck!

Lost Nikon Travelite ex eye piece

I'm supposing by eyepiece you mean the rubber or plastic eyecup. The eyepiece is the whole unit that contains the lens. Nikon has a service center in many countries. If you have one in your country then they can order the part. I have ordered from Nikon. They find the part number if you tell them your model and can email you an order form. Alternately is very good to deal with as is Adorama Camera in New York. Both will sell internationally.

Brother MFC-7220 says "close back cover" but it's closed

Have you tried this solution by joefishny:

Turn the machine around so that you are facing the back. Open the back cover. Pull down the second

smaller roller cover inside the machine. If you look closely at the second smaller cover, on the right hand side (closer the the inside of the machine), is a very thin round piece of plastic that is only half the

length of the smaller cover. There are 2 thin plastic tabs attached to either end of this round piece of

plastic. Gently shift this over so that the 2 plastic tabs can now go into the space provided for them. I had to move mine over only 1/4 inch.

Mode Button Inoperable

In most battery opperated, fim cameras, the buttons are usually composed of a plastic outer, the part you press, and underneath that button is a thin piece of angled plastic that keeps the button from depressing when you aren't touching it. That thin piece of plastic usually isn't very sturdy and can and had a tendency to break in half making it impossible to get a battery reaction. If you trust yourself with a small screw driver and have a good memory of what you take appart, you can replace this piece yourself. Any camera shop will have the piece you need. Other than that, you'll need some super glue to secure it and you should have a refurbished Mode button~!
Good Luck and I hope you're up taking photos soon!
