How do I attach the camera to the tripod?

Check the back of the camera to check if there is a hole with thread.
The top part of the tripod usually comes out. Screw the top part of the tripod to the camera and after that attach it back to the tripod.
If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers

Where can I get an either replacement handle or the entire head for my Sunpak 7500 Platinum Plus tripod?

Hello, Richard - I am not finding any replacement parts online (in the USA) for the Sunpak 7500 Platinum Plus tripod. However, in the USA, ToCad America appears to provide repair services for Sunpak products. See: https://www.tocad.com/ Scroll down that page to the Contact Us section where you can fill in a form to send an email message. You can ask if the company provides and sells the right kind of replacement handle. Best wishes.

I have the Sunpak 6000PG..One of the leg sections does NOT hold when clamp is in place. All other sections work fine it's only one of the ones that contacts the ground. HELP??

Sunpak 6000PG what ? From the rest of your post, it appears to be a tripod. I am confused when you refer to 'one of the ones that contacts the ground' - all legs on a tripod should contact the ground.Be that as it may, if the leg clamp is broken, it may not be financially viable to have it repaired, and you may wish to replace it with a newer, sturdier model that will stand up to rough treatment.

Mike, does my Sunpak PRO 423PX have a reversible head fitting?

There is no point in addressing queries to individuals - none of us are members of staff, merely volunteers who try to help. You can get a 3/8 to 1/4 adapter at any reputable camera store, or on eBay.

I AM LOOKING TO REPLACE THE QUICK MOUNT ON THE PLATINUM PLUS MODEL THAT MOUNTS MY CAMERA TO THE TRIPOD.

Honestly, I've never seen these sold separately, though you may find them online. I have three tripods, and they all take the same mount, so pretty much any quick-mount should work for yours, too. This link is the best I can offer you: Showing results for quick tripod mounts

I have a Sunpak 6000PG

This worked for me the first few times and I put a link to a video which explains the same thing. "I had the same problem out of the box. Very frustrating. After some research, I found a you tube video showing how to tighten the head. The short version is that there is a fairly small hole that accepts an allen wrench (hex key) that can be loosened to allow you to turn the knurled ring just below it to loosen and tighten. The trick is to turn the knorled ring while pulling on the pistol grip. This loosens the mechanism so you can turn the ring. Worked like a champ. It is now solid as a rock." However, my allen bolt is completely stripped now and there's no getting to it anymore. So...I did the following and I surprisingly, I haven't had to mess with it anymore. This sounds ugly and looks even uglier, I'll show you the snapshot, but it works well even with my dslr, with my battery grip, and with my 1000mm lens or my 70-300mm lens, in landscape and portrait modes. Here's my final solution. I took a can of 3M Super 77 Multipurpose Adhesive Spray and gooked up the ball on which the tripod head rotates on and let it dry. I applied a second coat just to make sure I had enough in there to get a nice thick coat in there. (Remember, this was a last ditch effort and at this point I really had nothing to lose). Today I am using it and surprisingly it pans smoother yet maintains the rigidity to be locked in any position. I can probably clean off the excess goo but I'll do that in my spare time!...yeah, right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayRDeoG63lE b6ac4d71-2130-48e8-beea-e1ab9f4c0390.jpg 4fca20ee-ae09-4b9f-bcd6-782e54b79204.jpg c8672b42-57e7-4337-9a31-87fd209173da.jpg b4ce7380-6a44-467d-b76a-5c9e5e0c3435.jpg 787945db-dc5d-40cc-a4e8-27102ad0bddb.jpg

Why can't I find a replacement part?

Available replacement parts for Sunpack tripods are pretty much limited to new heads, mounting plates, or carry cases; take a look at what B&H Photo has to offer. You don't say what specific tripod you have, but I'd suggest a search at eBay where several are available at auction right now. Furthermore, a check of completed auction/sales shows both new and lightly used ones sold in the past month for between $10 to $50. Buy one for parts or use it as is. You won't find any part plus shipping for less than that. Sunpack makes consumer not pro level tripods even though the term Pro may appear in some product names. When you buy a tripod that costs $400 and up without the head, you get more options for replacement parts. I have a Sunpack myself for lightest duty when hiking, but my main tripod is a Manfrotto with the grip head. The huge difference in cost makes a corresponding difference in what parts I can find online. When my Sunpack broke (in a different way than yours but equally unusable) I used gaffer's tape to hold it together until I could find a new one (on eBay for $15). Good luck!
