Finepix z70 looking for battery door catch can you help


On many cameras it is a small recessed sliding switch actually on the door of the battery compartment, on the baseplate to the right of the tripod socket. There should also be information in the manual to help you.

I have lost the bolt that fits inside the Slik 88 head, It secures the camera to the tripod


The bolt (actually a knurled bolt) is 1/4 inch. Almost any good nut and bolt supplier should have something that will make a suitable replacement. Just select the right length to suit your tripod. You should also be able to get a bolt that only has a thread on the end bit and a bare or recessed shoulder, similar to the original.

Canon G3 camera just stopped working completely


Do you have a way to test the battery and you know it's ok?

Those batteries have built-in protection circuitry that can cut out or turn off the battery entirely if it detected a problem like a short circuit, etc. And it may not get over it.

Try a 2nd battery or the AC power adapter directly.

Also check that the 3 little pins in the camera DC input jack are intact, straight, and not touching each other.

Some camera's won't turn on if the memory card door is open or the card is ejected but I tested that on my G3 and it still turns on either way.

Ah.... and lastly... there is a little electrical limit switch connected to the battery cover door that disables the camera if the battery door is open. It gets pressed by a small plastic piece attached to the battery cover when you close the battery door. If the plastic piece or the tiny, recessed switch has an issue then the camera won't turn on The switch could be bypassed internally (not easy to do) if that was the problem.

Look for a tiny, thin, black plastic switch about as thin as a staple down in a recessed hole (slot) near the battery cover hinge. Try gentle pushing the battery closed switch "over" a little. You can tell which way to push by observing how the battery door slides into position as you close it. I was able to turn on my camera with the door open by doing this.
The switch is very tiny, don't break it.

If the battery door isn't closing all the way that would also cause the same issue.

Reseting Sony H1 digital camera


Hi

If you examine the body of the camera there is a tiny reset - which is recessed into the body. To access it you need somthing such as a bent out paper clip wire.

Hope this helps. Remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Next step for the rebirthing of my DSC-V1 ??


Hi Pat,

There is a reset button which is recessed on the underside of the camera, next to the battery cover. You'll need something like an unbent paperclip to press the bottom and it resets the camera back to factory presets. This reset includes setting the the file numbering system back to zero so if it works you'll need to go into the menu and manually set your file and folder numbering to something which won't clash with earlier photos.

The only trouble is that the camera needs to be powered up for the reset to work, so you'll need to plug the charging lead into the camera to power it up.

If this fails, then your camera has sadly become a parts donor.

DSC-V1's in excellent condition regularly appear on auction websites but take care: many will have a CCD just waiting to fail so either ask if it's been replaced by Sony (making sure the seller can supply proof) or get a DSC-V3 which is very similar but does not have the risk of a faulty 5MP CCD. The DSC-V1 is still a better camera though as it handles better and has less image noise.

Flip Mino HD battery will not recharge


I panicked when I saw all these posts but the reset did work for me. Others say it doesn't but this first time at least, it did the trick. I stuck the end of a paper clip in the little hole in where the tripod mount is (it's further recessed than the mount itself). It doesn't seem like it fits, but it does. The minoHD was off, since by this time it wouldn't turn on. When I tried to turn it on again, it finally came on with the battery in the red zone. I recharged and it appears to be fine.
