How do I change lens orientation on my F828?

It does'nt explain how in the manual. Is there a button or some kind of release? Or do you just man handle it? I dont want to just try and twist it and damage my camera.

Just move it. I assume you're talking about the swivel? It's just a friction joint. Hold the body and rotate the lens up or down.

Graco alano not folding? the push and twist handle not turning?? so the stroller does not collapse or fold. how can i get it to fold. wife needs to travel back and i am not sure airline would allow her if...

Took a while but finally figured it out. Original thinking was that the problem is in the handle twist and release mechanism. The problem actually lies in the collar where the unit locks into place. If the stroller is in the open position it can't be fixed unless it's folded up. To open stroller without the twist handle -- locate both black spring loaded collars where it locks into place (approx outside where the seat and seat back meet). Manually pull both the collars up the shaft. The spring is tight and it may take an extra set of hands to get the right leverage. Once the unit is in the folded position -- flip the stroller upside down and blast WD-40 into the hole where the spring pins are and work the black collar up and down. The twist mechanism on the handle will now work. My daughter claims it didn't even work that good when the stroller was brand new and we saved the time and trouble of shipping the entire stroller and seat system back to Georgia just to let the Graco people decide what to do. Bottom line is that this mechanism design stinks from the get go. Hope this helps.

How to unfold a safety first playpen

Most all of the newer playpens called Pack N Plays use a bottom-center
safety device. You must lift up the bottom of the playpen, usually a tab or twist handle. Either lift or twist and lift to be able to drop or raise the sides. YOU CANNOT RAISE OR LOWER THE SIDES UNLESS YOU LIFT THE SAFETY UP. Dont man-handle the sides. Slamming them up or down will break them. Sometimes it helps to lift the side releases before pressing the releases thet are inside the cloth. Basically the floor of the playpen has to be sticking up to allow the sides to raise or lower and lock.

I cannot open the trunk. I tried from inside the car with trunk button, car key button. Nothing. Help!

Checked all the fuses? I assume your trunk has no key cylinder.
Can you fold down your rear seats? Many times there is a manual release inside the trunk, just incase you lock yourself in the trunk!
If there is no manual release lever or cable with handle to pull the latch itself may have a slot on it that when a flat screwdriver is inserted and twisted it will rotate the release.

How do I change the lens opening when the samera is on the manual mode. I swtch to manual and can change the shutter speed, but not the lens opening. Can you mail me a user manual to desccribe these...

Change the aperture setting by turning the command wheel while holding down the aperture button.

The aperture button is the same button as the exposure compensation, southeast of the shutter release button.

You can download the manual at

The manual exposure mode is described on page 77.

Lens error 12 & 25 at first, now the unit won't power on unless it's set to playback mode

For quick reference, here is a copy of your owners manual's-manual---d80---guide-to-digital-photography Solution 1 • Unlock focus area selector. • Auto-area AF selected for Custom Setting 2 (AFarea mode): choose another mode. • Press shutter-release button halfway to turn monitor o?¬? or activate exposure meter • Memory card is full, locked, or not inserted. • Flash is charging. • Camera is not in focus. • CPU lens with aperture ring attached without locking aperture at highest f/-number. • Non-CPU lens is attached: rotate camera mode dial to M. • Mode dial rotated to S after shutter speed of bulb selected in mode M: choose new shutter speed • P, S, A, and M modes: lower ?¬? ash. • Digital Vari-Program modes: turn ?¬? ash o?¬? Turn long exposure noise reduction o?¬? Turn long exposure noise reduction o?¬? Press multi selector up or down or rotate sub-command dial to choose photo information displayed Select All for Playback folder. Note that Current will automatically be selected when next photo is taken • Select On for Rotate tall. • Photo was taken with O?¬? selected for Auto image rotation. • Camera orientation was changed while shutter-release button was pressed in continuous shooting mode. • Camera was pointed up or down when photo was taken Use Nikon-approved card. • Card may be damaged. Contact retailer or Nikonauthorized service representative. • Delete unwanted ?¬ les or insert new memory car after removing and replacing the memory card and powering off then back on your cam, you may see how the system now registers your photos will having to click back and forth between AUTO and MAN. I posted very closely related troubleshooting steps to take in order to prevent your CAM from performing badly. Check your CAM batteries to ensure they are using only approved NIKON batteries as anything else will cause you lots of errors and potential problems. When you using the timer or remote options, remember these are controlled by battery as well, radio frequency, and radio wave lengths. When you press the button to take a photo, inspect the button, press firmly for a second and release. If your button is not performing the way it should, inspect it to see if any wear and tear is visible to you. Check free deprey around the button such as DUST, HAIR BUILDUP, and small particals that are hardly visible to the human eye. With very low velocity pressure air, blow around the shoot button as build up will cause the same error your experiencing.

How do you remove the handle of the g10d for shipping

On the back of the machine at the base of the handle, there's a release button. Lift it up toward the handle and pull the handle up at the same time. Kind of like releasing some seat belts.

I need to replace the lens hood for my Sony dsc f828 . What size should I be looking for ? 55 mm ? Thanks

The lens thred is 58mm on F828, however a 58mm lens hood does not work; I have both a reverseable and a regular 58mm flower hood that extends 1/2" to the front of the lens causing dark corners on 28mm focal length. In addition, the lens itseft has built in receiver for hood as labled in the manual, I am thinking to get a 62mm or 60mm reversable hood and match up with the receiver on the lens
