Question about Hasselblad 555ELD Medium Format Camera

1 Answer

Hasselblad 555ELD My attached Digital Back has play in it. It does not seat firmly against the body. It can wiggle or pull outward by 1 mm. This would change the focus by the amount of play, but in most of my photos, the Depth of Field seems to take care of the anomoly.

I would check the top latch plate first. They do have a tendency to become loose. The latch points at the base could be slightly bent too.

How do I remove rear seats in my 1987 xj6 jaguar to access the sunroof motor?

If I recall correctly, the lower seat cushion pushes rearward toward the boot, then pulls up and out. Once that has been removed, you will see two bolts attaching the rear cushion to the body. Remove those bolts, then pull the rear cushion slightly outward (towards the bonnet), then upward to unhook from the body.

How do u remove the rear seat on 1196 honda accord?

The rear seat is four (4) pieces.
You will need two tools a 6mm and 8mm wrenches.
1.) Unbuckle the rear seat belts. 2.) Locate the bolt in the center part of the rear seat, between the cushion and the seat-back. Remove the bolt with a 6 mm socket wrench. 3.) Push down firmly on the front edge of the rear seat cushion and pull it toward you to unhook and remove the rear seat cushion. Push the seat belt stalks through the center holes and lift the cushion out of the Accord. 4.) Pull the lever on the side of the rear seat bolster to lower the rear seat-back, which must be in the down position to access its bolts. 5.) Slide the center seat belt toward the passenger side of the vehicle. Move the loop over the edge of the seat-back to prevent it from hindering removal. 6.) Remove the three bolts from the bottom edge of the rear seat-back, using an 8 mm socket wrench. One bolt is in the center; the other two bolts are on either side. 7.) Pull the rear seat-back out of the Accord. The remaining sections of the seat should be the two side bolsters. 8.) Remove the bolts from the bottom of the side bolsters with a 6 mm socket wrench. Push firmly against the first side bolster. Push it upward to slide it out of its mount. Repeat the process on the bolster on the other side to finish removing the Accord's rear seat.

This should take approximately 15-30 minutes depending hoe mechanically inclined a person is.

      Unscrew the passenger seat\'s mounting bolt, positioned on
      the rear of the seat, using a socket wrench and a 10 mm socket. Lift the
      passenger seat up and away from the rider\'s seat.

    • 2

      Flip the passenger seat upside down and place it on a clean
      work area. Pry out the seat cover\'s staples from the bottom of the seat
      pan with a small pry bar or staple puller. Pull off the vinyl cover and
      remove the foam from the seat pan.

    • 3

      Flip the seat pan over. Place the Utopia back rest bar over
      the top of the seat pan, following the contours of seat pan. Center the
      bar in the middle of the pan, then mark the location of the bar\'s
      mounting holes on the seat pan with a permanent marker. Remove the back
      rest bar.

    • 4

      Drill two holes into the seat pan at the marked locations,
      using an electric drill and a 9/32-inch drill bit. Place the back rest
      bar onto the seat pan. Screw the kit\'s bolts and lock washers through
      the bottom of the pan and into the back rest bar. Tighten the bolts with
      a 10 mm socket and a socket wrench.

    • 5

      Lay the seat\'s foam next to the seat pan. Mark the
      approximate location of the back rest bar\'s protruding neck at the front
      of the seat onto the foam with a permanent marker. Cut a slit into the
      foam at the marked area, using a sharp knife. Place the foam over the
      seat pan and push the bar\'s neck through the foam\'s newly cut slit.

    • 6

      Place the vinyl cover over the seat foam and pan. Pull the
      cover tight around the sides of the seat and staple it into place, using
      a heavy-duty staple gun. Cut a slit into the seat cover with a razor to
      allow the back rest bar\'s neck to extend outward. Remove the paper
      backing from the plastic boot included with the back rest kit. Slide the
      boot over the bar\'s neck and hold it firmly in place for 30 seconds.

    • 7

      Reinstall the passenger seat on the motorcycle and tighten
      its bolt with a 10 mm socket. Place the back rest over the bar\'s neck on
      the passenger seat. Slip a bolt through the backrest\'s mounting holes
      and into the tube on the bar\'s neck. Loosely screw a nut onto the end of
      the bolt. Adjust the angle of the back rest, then tighten the bolt and
      nut using a 10 mm socket and a 10 mm wrench.

    • 1 Remove the rider's seat, using an Allen socket to unscrew the pair of bolts that secure the rear of the seat to the frame. Lift the rear of the seat upward then pull the seat toward the rear of the motorcycle to disengage it from the frame's catch tabs.
    • 2 Remove the pair of bolts that secure the front of the gas tank to the frame. Lift the fuel tank upward on the pivot at the base of the tank. Support the fuel tank against the frame using the tank's support rod.
    • 3 Remove the air box. Pull the three air hoses from the air box. Loosen the clamps on the air box's rubber boots with a screwdriver, and pull the air box out of the motorcycle.
    • 4 Pull the four coil packs out of the motor's cylinders. Clear any dirt and debris that has accumulated on top of the cylinders with compressed air, directing the air into the spark plug holes that the coil packs were installed in. Remove the spark plugs using a spark plug socket attached to a socket extension.
    • 5 Install new, properly gapped spark plugs into the motor with a spark plug socket. Tighten the socket until it is seated firmly against the motor. Reinstall the coil packs onto the spark plugs.
    • 6 Reinstall the air box, tightening the clamps on the rubber boots to secure the air box to the throttle bodies. Reconnect the trio of air hoses to the air box.
    • 7 Remove the tank support rod and lower the fuel tank onto the frame. Insert and tighten the fuel tank bolts with an Allen socket. Reinstall the seat, firmly tightening the mounting bolts with an Allen socket.

Don't have the directions to put evenflo exersaucer together, need help. Is there somewhere I can get the directions? reg. number 07T-0538604

    • 1 Place the large, round base on the floor. The outwardly curving edge should be facing downward.
    • 2 Attach the three pedestals to the base. To do so, insert your finger into each pedestal and loop the spring within around the hook found on the base in the appropriate holes. Insert the three plastic tabs on each pedestal into the base, locking them into place.
    • 3 Press the wider end of a lower leg assembly onto each pedestal piece. By wiggling the lower leg assembly side to side, you will eventually snap the pieces into place.
    • 4 Hold the seat ring in your lap with the open edge facing upward. Press each of the six wheels into the wheel holders around the edge of the seat ring. Each wheel will snap into place when positioned correctly.
    • 5 Insert the cloth seat into the seat ring, aligning the diamond on the cloth seat with the triangle on the seat ring. Each plastic tab lining the edge of the cloth seat attaches to a peg on the seat ring. Snap these connections into place.
    • 6 Hold the Exersaucer tray on its side and press the seat ring into the center. Once the seat ring snaps into place, it should be able to spin in place.
    • 7 Attach the three spring caps to the Exersaucer tray. These spring caps cover the three large holes in your tray, and are attached by a firm clockwise twist.
    • 8 Attach the upper leg assemblies to the upper leg crowns. These crowns act as the "socket" and the upper leg assemblies act as the "ball." By pressing them together with a click, the upper leg assemblies can twist and rotate in place.
    • 9 Turn the tray upside down and press each upper leg crown base into the round holes in the tray with a firm twist. Each upper leg crown features a height adjustment hole, which will face outward when properly attached.
    • 10 Turn over the tray so that the upper leg assemblies are facing downward. Insert each upper leg assembly into a lower leg assembly, being sure to pull away the height adjustment tab to allow the assemblies to slide together.
    • 11 Press each toy into its respective port on the surface of the tray. The toys each have a distinct base, which clicks into the correspondingly shaped tray port

Adapt a Hassie 500el/m to a Imacon ixpress back V 4.7

The Hasselblad ELM does not need adapting to use the Imacon or hasselblad digital back  the following backs fit on the ELM and can be triggered with a cable that should be supplied with the back. 
Hasselblad V96c 16mp square format back  Hasselblad CFV 16mp square format back with CF slot Hasselblad CFVII 16mp square format back with CF slot + larger screen
the following backs will work but need to have a V adapter plate fitted to the back 
96c 16mp square format back  132c 22mp 645 format back  528c 22mp 645 format back with Multishot option CF-22 22mp 645 format back with CF slot CF-22 MS 22mp 645 format back with CF slot & Multishot option CF-39 39mp 645 format back with CF slot CF-39 MS 39mp 645 format back with CF slot & Multishot option

When fitting and digital back to an older camera the best advice is to get the camera body serviced to ensure that the back mount is correct as the digital backs require a better fit than the film backs did. If the mount is off it will cause back or front focus.

if you can acquire sharp image with your 80mm, but not the 50mm and 120mmmm, there is no problem with your camera body, i.e. lens-flange to film plane. but how come you can not manage to get a sharp spot anywhere from the full turn of focusing rings with your 50mm and 120mm, unless the lens units inside these 2 lenses shifted. i doubt this happened to both lenses simultaneously?

if you are sure that your lenses have problem, send them for focusing test, since they are good and expensive lenses.
