Question about Canon EOS Elan IIE 35mm SLR Camera

The camera back button requires power to operate and as the electronics seem to be fried button pushing doesn't open the door. So is there a manual access way? thanks

I had a Canon Elan IIe and I don't recall having to have electronics to open the camera back.
Make sure you have a battery in it, turn it on look at the LCD panel and see if it has film in it.
If so you should be able to push the "mid roll" film rewind button located on the back left side it shows a film canister icon. Once the film has rewound into the canister release the back with the mechanical latch found on the left side (while facing the back of the camera) just push it down and the back will pop open. Those cameras are pretty darn good and the only thing I've seen friy the electronics is using an "old" type flash on the hot shoe and that takes the flash circuit board and melts the thing. I'd expect the camera battery is dead and you can't rewind the film back into the canister.

My GMC Yukon door not opening


This appears to be a fairly common problem on your vehicle 2 seperate occurences the electronic locks will not operate and also the mechanical latch not operating both resulting in an inoperative back door condition. It seems the only way to open the door is to remove back door panel and manually operate the latch mechanism and then find why it will not operate normally for instance the linkage no longer being attached to latch mechanism or electronic connector not making connection both have been found to be common in gmc yukons

Doorbell doesn't work


It seems your doorbell transmitter got wet and corroded the contacts.
These push buttons are not sealed at all and thus will let rain, snow etc. eventually corrode the electronics.
Solution: Find a new push button on eBay.

I just had a power outage. My garage door was open during the whole afternoon. I pulled the red trolley emergency cord and pushed the door down but I couldn't get it closed (locked). Why not?


IF THE OPENER IS IN THE OPEN POSITION THERE IS NOTHING TO LOCK IT IN THE CLOSED POSITION.
YOU CAN UNPLUG THE UNIT AND PLACE A VICE GRIP ABOVE A ROLLER ON THE TRACK. THIS WILL SECURE THE DOOR UNTIL POWER COMES BACK ON - DO NOT LEAVE THE UNIT PLUGGED IN - IT COULD BE DAMAGED BY A POWER SURGE WHEN THE POWER COMES BACK ON (ALL ELECTRONICS IN THE HOUSE SHOULD BE UNPLUGGED) ALSO IF YOU FORGET AND PUSH THE BUTTON THE VICE GRIP WOULD CAUSE THE DOOR TO COME OUT OF THE TRACK, MAKING YOUR CURRENT ISSUE SEEM SMALL.

Communication to the opener fails. The little green light on the door opener goes out. It eventually returns and then the door will work again.


Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn’t work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.

If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote signal.

Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.

The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.
Or a remote in someone’s purse that gets the button pushed by other stuff in the purse.

The test is to disconnect the push button wires at the power unit. If the self operation / interference stops you have located the problem. If you reconnect the wires and disconnect the wire at the wall button this will tell you if the problem is the wire or the button.



HOPE THIS HELPS

Probelm ejecting the dvd from my Hitachi GX3100A


If you go to the Hitachi website, you can download the product manual for your camcorder there.

These are the instructions for opening the dvd door.

1 Press down the DISC EJECT button once and
release it.
A few moments after the ACCESS/PC
indicator blinks, the cover of disc insertion
block will open.
2 Gently open the cover by hand fully until it
stops.

This is the link for the owners manual search: http://www.hitachionlinestore.com/survey/manualsearch.aspx


Hope this helps.
