Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I could not get my floppy disk out and the paper sticky that describes what is on the disk got stuck. I had to get it out with a tweezer. The spring load would not push it out. NOW, I cannot put my floppy disk back in. It stops at a certain point and I do not want to push it. I have a Sony MVCFD81 and I love this camera. I need it fixed. How much and how long does it take? Thank you, Sharon A. Miller

    I have the same problem on a Sony MVC-FD88. The disk
    goes in OK, but I can't get it back out on mine unless I take a very
    very small screwdriver and very carefully lift up the door that closes
    when the disk is inserted. I am very technical, but I'm a bit afraid
    to take the camera apart to examine the door not having any maintenance
    instructions. If anyone knows about these problems and the fixes for
    sticking floppy disks in the camera I hope they post something.
    Thanks!!!

On my Sony MVC-FD88 I had listed this as a similar problem on FixYa.com and then explored it further. I'm very technical so I replaced the internal floppy disk drive myself, so wanted to post my findings here.

I bought the internal floppy disk drive (very hard part to find) at partstore.com

It is not an easy procedure if you have not done this type of work before. There are several online places that will replace the floppy disk drive for you.

They are very delicate, any jar to the camera can harm them, as well as, labels on disks loose or a misaligned disk cover on the floppy disk. Mine now works perfectly. Generally, once they jam, getting the floppy disk out often destroys the floppy disk drive heads inside the camera. These are great cameras. I am always impressed by mine, it is a definite keeper. From what I've found the electronics of the camera are quite reliable and I only need to take a couple of pictures at a time, so a memory chip type camera is of no real value to me.

Small strip of sticky paper stuck in shredder opening so the shredder runs continuously. How can I correct this?


Plain and simple you will have to get that paper out by any means necessary. Long tweezers, needle nose, knitting needle, vacuum....etc. Unplug while you are doing that.

Hpllaser jet 1200 paper stuck in the back I had try to pull it but I can barely see it there, i can't see it from the front


You might use a tweezers and try to pull out the paper. The paper is stuck by a sensor, and if you can clear that sensor, the machine will start up, and transport the rest of the paper out. Be carefull and try not to hurt the fusing rollers, while picking with the tweezers.
If it's no good, you have to disassemble
the fuser-unit and remove the paper, or in worst case, replace the fuser unit..

Paper jam???


Follow these steps :
1.1
Remove all paper from the trays. This will prevent further jams during the clearing.
2.2
Remove the covering to the printer's outer case to expose the jam. Locate the jammed paper to ensure there is not another problem causing the stall.
3.3
Pull gently on the jammed paper, taking care not to tear it. In most cases, this will remove the jam.
4.4
Press the flashing "Printer Jam" button. This will allow the rotors to turn and facilitate the release of the jam.
5.5
Turn off the printer and firmly pull on the jammed paper. Be careful not to tear it.
6.6
Remove remaining paper shreds. if a tear occurs, remove any residual paper that may hamper printing.
7.7
Refill the paper tray and try printing again. If the jam persists, repeat the process and search for more paper.

How di i change the batteries in my Casio Pathfinder 2782


  • Choose a quiet, well-lit room where you can replace the battery in your Casio Pathfinder watch. Prepare a table, desk or other clean, flat surface where you can perform your watch repair. Put down a soft cloth or piece of craft felt to protect the face of your Casio Pathfinder watch from being scratched during the battery installation process.

  • 2

    Set your Casio Pathfinder watch face-down on the soft cloth or craft felt. Use an optical-sized Philips screwdriver to remove the four screws that secure the watch back to the body of the watch. Set the screws aside, but don't lift the watch back.

  • 3

    Slide the watch back off of the body of the watch very slowly. There are three important springs held underneath the watch back; it is essential to remove the watch back slowly to avoid losing them.

  • 4

    Lift the three springs out of your Casio Pathfinder watch using a small pair of metal tweezers. Take note of the length and placement of the springs as you remove them. Set the springs aside with the other disassembled watch components.

  • 5

    Take the black rubber protective disk out of your Casio Pathfinder to reveal an identically-shaped white plastic disk. Remove the white plastic disk and set it and the black rubber disk aside. Use your metal tweezers, if necessary, to lift out the rubber and plastic disks.

  • 6

    Release the battery strap that holds the battery in place in your Casio Pathfinder watch by pushing the battery strap latch to the left. Remove the old battery from your Casio Pathfinder using a pair of small plastic tweezers.

  • 7

    Pick up your replacement watch battery with the small plastic tweezers and insert it into the battery compartment of your Casio Pathfinder watch. Replace the battery strap and push it gently with the tip of your plastic tweezers to snap the latch in place.

  • 8

    Touch the "-" and "AC" terminals on your Casio Pathfinder watch with the tips of your metal tweezers for at least two seconds. This helps ensure that your watch will work properly once reassembled.

  • 9

    Put your Casio Pathfinder back together to complete the new battery installation. Start by replacing the white plastic disk, followed by the protective black rubber disk. Use your small metal tweezers to replace the small watch springs in their correct locations. Replace the back cover of your Casio Pathfinder, insert the four screws and tighten them with your optical-sized Philips screwdriver.

    Paper doesnt go in properly and kinda tilts to the right. Then the paper is slightly screwed up....Sign comes up saying 'Paper is jammed'.


    Often that's caused by a sticky piece of paper that's caught on one side of the printer. People who print a lot of labels tend to get this problem. Or there could be something else stuck in there. Open the printer as much as you can to see if you can find it and pull it out with tweezers. It may also need adjusting so if you can't find the problem you'll probably have to take it to a technician.

    Paper pulls to right and then jams up printer


    I once had this problem after I printed labels. Part of the sticky label got caught in the corner of the printer. Hopefully you can find out what it stuck in there and pull it out with the tweezers. If the problem isn't caused by that, you may have to take it into a repair shop.

    Can't get instuctions for my paper feed cleaning kit!


    Hi,

    Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry. Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print. Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job. Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..
    Thanks
