SOURCE: Focal tripod

There is a small piece of metal that wedges between the latch and the leg. It is pretty thin, yet strong, and curves in the middle. If you bend some pieces of metal and cut them to fit into these latches, they should work again. I'm sorry I don't have a picture at this time.

Manual for vanguard mk4 tripod


Do you really need a manual for a tripod ? Easy to use - just move the legs to their widest extent, to ensure stability, mount camera on top, attach remote release to camera, aim camera at subject and shoot.
You can download a manual for almost any equipment by Googling the make and model followed by the word Manual, then follow the appropriate link(s).

Broken quick release plate lever on Vanguard PH-32 3-way Photo Magnesium Alloy Panhead.


Unfortunately, Vanguard does not sell replacement pieces, you may have to ship it off to them in order to get it fixed. It's either that or you can buy a new pan head or quick release adapter. You can find those at www.tripodquickrelease.com, sometimes though pan heads don't come off of a tripod.

The leg clamp on my tripod is broken i need to find a replacement


They were not made to be serviced. They were made to be disposable essentially, but you might contact the folks at B&H to see if they may have a solution.

Otherwise depending how it broke, it might be able to be cemented, or reconfigured to accept a different type of clamp. I had a no name type of tripod that required some caredul filing to restore a lip on a clamp so it would lock after the original lip snapped off.

Ive got a broken enter key how do i go about getting a new one and getting it fixed


HI There!

I replace alot of keys because I'm a laptop expert. It's a little tricky because the different ways the keys are "snapped" into place can require some excruciating positioning and the proper setting of tiniy pinion points into holes that I prefer to look at through a 6 power magnifying glass and set with surgical tweezers (you can actually see the ends through the looking glass).

I answer alot of the tough questions here (not that they're so tough) that no one wants to answer because they don't want their rating to go down for telling a difficult truth.

So. coplain to the manufacturer, conmplain to the retailer, ANYTHING but replace the key yourself.

And finally, please don't give me any rating at all if you don't like my answer. If you're going to, make it 3 or 4 thumbs up. 2 just demeans me in a miniscule way rating-wise.

Regards,

TheSelkie

Washer unbalanced on final spin, cannot stop the unbalance


Hi Sparky,
The reason it's out of balance is because the skate plate shoes are worn out and need to be replaced. You'll have to access the washer in order to do this. There's a video available that shows how to do it.

After you have opened up the washer you'll see that the tub is sitting on a three legged pedestal. The shoes are in between the skate plate and the top of the pedestal. Here's a picture (and part number) to illustrate...

bc62875.jpg

Do one shoe at a time by lifting the skate plate off of the pedestal about an inch or so and wedging it there (I use a hammer handle as a wedge). The shoes simply snap into place, so the old ones will have to be snapped out of place first. Use another hammer and tap the shoes out of their sockets from underneath.

NOTE! ---> When you place the new shoe into its' place DO NOT try to snap it in!!! (if you do, you'll break it) Just let it rest in it's place for now. Remove your wedge and allow the full weight of the tub to sit on it. Then move on to the next shoe and repeat.

After all 3 shoes have been replaced it's time to snap them in completely. Do this from the top of the tub. Using your body weight, press down on the tub from above on all three corners (where the shoes are located). This will apply even pressure to the top of the shoe and keep it from breaking. You should have all 3 snapped in now. Use a flashlight and look underneath to verify (you should see the tabs of the shoes poking all the way through the pedestal).

Now all that's left is to rebuild the washer cabinet and start some laundry!

SG

p.s. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but this job can be done easily within an hour and the parts only cost ~$12.00!

How the hell does the skirt go on this piece of ****?


Put the metal frame on the board - then turn them upside down. The skirt has four slits - where the knobs on the bottom of the board come through - pull the material tautly while snapping on buttons.

ART055 manfrotto pro tripod


Hey there fotoflika, I have had a similiar problem in the past and found replacement parts unavailable. My solution was to drill a small hole through the leg section, and I used a similiar size allen key to stick in the hole, effectively locking the leg in place. You could drill several holes for different extension lengths. Crude I admit, but cheaper than buying a new tripod.
