Focusing screen fell out

The little rectangular screen fell out and I have no instructions for putting it back in. THe manual just refers to 'the manual that came with the new focusing screen', which I don't have, since this is the original that came with the camera, I am not sure what to do? thanks

There is a metal cradle inside the camera in the roof that flips down. Try firing the shutter without a lens attached, you'll be able to see the rectangular cradle(Tray) The Focusing screen is to be placed in the roof of the camera with the small tab facing OUT of the camera,.be sure to press in firmly with some pressure, but ensure that you support the tray while you do this so as not to damage it.do not touch the main part of the focusing screen Focusing screens get damaged very easily. Try only to touch the tab(make sure your hand is not making direct contact with the screen, as i learnt mine the hardway, you can wear apair of clean surgical gloves) The Cradle then lifts upwards and clicks in. Also note the lock in tab that holds the tray in place and check to see that its not slack, if it is, the tray will drop back halfway after firing the shutter and lifting the cradle/tray. to correct this, slightly push it in & fire the shutter again until you get the right amount of grip nd your tray stays up after the shutter is fired. It worked well for some time until it fell out again and irepeated the procedure above and added this time some very thin line of glue around the edge of the screen to keep it in place. Dont use epoxy based glues like super glue et al.

We have just bought a house in Canberra with a Honeywell Thermostat to operate gas central heating system. There is no manual and we do not know how to programme it. I would guess that it is about 10 years...

I have put many of those in and yes, they are hard to program compared to the new ones. You will probably not find any instructions unless you go on line to honeywell and ask. Otherwise it may be worth your time and less head ache to just go get a new thermostat even the ones at Home Depot are a lot easier.

The shutter inside fell out.

You must be referring to the mirror. In the second part, you must be referring to the focusing screen. If you have not dropped it, there is no likelihood of this getting damaged. You could probably be looking at the split image screen. There is no quick solution for the problem. Please take the camera to the nearest service center.

Frame around lens fell off

Do you mean the focussing ring fell off?

It can be reglued with Superglue, but be very careful not to use the glue from the tube or you could get it everywhere. First focus the lens on infinity. This is the furthest back or most withdrawn position of the lens. The infinity marking on the ring will be beside the diamond or dot indicator. Put a little bit of Superglue onto the end of a matchstick, and then use the matchstick to put traces of the Superglue on the lens barrel, exactly where the ring will sit. carefully place the ring on its correct position on the lens barrel.

FOCUS ERROR

I also had this problem. When starting the focus error alert came. Trying to move the focus button also triggered this. When I turned it off, the lens did not pull back.After being close to trowing it away, I used a little bit more force than before and turned the lens manually. I heard a click, and than it worked again. PS: Follow this tip on your own risk.....

Digitil camera out of focus

The motor that controls the focus of the lense may be bad. Here is a link to the manual, and you many need to have the camera serviced at a local shop or by Vivatar.
Go here to download the manual for future reference:
