    I have the same issue. I can't find information on the company that made this tripod anywhere. I'd hate to throw it away because I really like it.

Fujifilm s5000 battery door broken

i broke mine a couple of years ago and fixed it by drilling and tapping two holes to suit 6-32 x 11/4" bolts as shown in the attached photo... one of the holes had to be enlarged to suit 6mm x20 because the thread is in a very flimsy area and had stripped
BTW the battery cover doesnt have to be removed from the camera as is shown in the photo! the photo was taken after i disassembled the camera for another repair

it works well with a couple of provisos...
1- the bolt heads may get in the way of mounting the camera on some tripods without modification
2-not as quick to change the batteries
3- dont screw the bolts down too tight - or the threads will strip

before this method i made a metal plate, the same shape as the base of the camera and used the camera tripod socket to attach it... thus keeping the battery door closed [ the advantage of this was that i could drill and tap a thread to attach the lot to a tripod - and the tripod mounting hole could be ia the centreline of the lens - making panoramas easier]11_28_2011_10_48_37_am.jpg

I need a one bolt and screw for my Vivitar model #1100 tripod. How do I get it ? It attaches any one leg to the body of the tripod.

That means the other two legs are connected with the very hardware you're looking for. Why not remove them and take a trip to the hardware store for a match?

Got a Mark-V FH616B tripod, at the first slide on the leg from the head down it came apart, can I get a diagram showinh how to put all the parts back together. Or can I buy a tripod with wheels, with a...

The 'wheels' section is sometimes referred to as a 'Dolly'.
There are some non-dedicated units available, but you will have to Google to check their dimensions and specifications.

You will probably never find a diagram to aid re-assembly of the tripod, but usually a bit of common sense or logic will guide you.

Good luck !

The Parts for the Velbon VS-3 are hard to come by. I just bought one from a flee market for about $10. I would say you woud have to check ebay or some other type of online retailer for a damaged or complete one that some is selling. Depending on what part is missing you can alos fix the crack with a bonding agent (Epoxy).

I have heard of this problem and it was sometimes solved by the following...

1. Remove battery and memory card

2. Place a paperback book on a solid surface

3. Bump the camera firmly on the paperback book

4. Reinstall battery and test

Worth a shot if it can save you from sending it in for service.
