I need to add fluid to the head of my C40 pro tripod. Do you have any manuals or help with this?

Thanks,

SOURCE: Pan control not fluid when tension increased

Sounds like you might have gotten some dirt trapped under there. You might try to loosen it and blow it clean.

SOURCE: Problem with solidex tripod

ptolhatley,
If it is a standard professional tripod - they are sold without the head mechanism so you can pick the type and style that best suits your needs,such as for sports, portrait, or commercial photography. Most camera shops can show you samples of the different types. You can go online to get an idea of the range in price (be aware that they are as much as a standard tripod that has a built-in head).

SOURCE: Fluid head platform is moving before the fluid

Below the head where it attached to the center column is a set of three screws. Back them out a little bit and then tighten the head, then screw those three grub screws back in to lock the head.

I cannot tell you esactly, but it seems to be more of an oil or grease than a liquid.

You can still order the plate that attaches the camera/scope to the head from Eagle Optics directly at this link:

How should fluid heads be stored?


Alisa: With all 'video tripod heads'...., regardless if the are the original 'true' fluid heads (that actually used a liquid (oil) to achieve 'fluid' type movements) or a modern professional 'fluid' head (that actually uses a clutch mechanism like a cars transmission) or a fluid effect head like the Manfrotto #501HDV (which used nylon discs sandwiching a ball bearing race)...., always store with the pan and tilt mechanisms unlocked!!!! This means the camera platform should be positioned in the 'rest' position (not tilted forward or backwards), also ensure that any counterbalance mechanism is released so as to eliminate strain on the internal mechanisms!!!!
If you remember to do this and don't overload the head..., you will extend the life of your gear significantly

What fluid do i need in my 3066 tripod


they don't use fluid - maybe some grease in the tilt and pan of the head, but the tripod itself doesn't need any.. you might need an adjustment somewhere... I own 3 of these.

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.

Problem removing head from tripod


Look on the underside of the platform where you screwed on the head. It should have 3 small screws in it. These are tighened and loosened with a jeweler's screwdriver. You may have one screw that is just *barely* tight, so you were able to hand tighten the head until it "locked" into place with the screw. When you loosen each of these screws a few turns the head should come off.

If you can't locate these screws, or you can't remove the head, you will need to take the tripod to a large camera store for assistance. Their rental or repair department can help you remove the head. If you need help locating a large camera store with a rental or repair department in your area, I may be able to help - I would need your location (e.g. city/state/country/zip or postal code).
