Fan won't turn on in a argus 300 projector

Steps : 1) W/the power cord UN-pugged, remove the 6 screws holding the 'metal projector portion' to its lower wood case. 2) If you find loads of old dirt, spider webs, etc present on the underside then vacuum them all off well, _especially_ around the fan motor. 3) Position the 'metal projector portion' on it side, on it's lower wood case, such that you can both see the fan blade _AND_ the bulb (in my case = Sylvania CLS, 300W, 120V) is not touching the wood case. 4) Manually try to spin the fan blade. 5) If the fan blade spins freely and the wires connecting it to the AC power are sound then you might have a bad fan. The orig fan (at least in my 300) was marked as follows { The Alliance Mfg. Co, Alliance O (letter 'O' or number '0', not sure), Alliance No. 2261890, winding ohms ~35 ohms, and on 115V the fan draws~ 2.5A AC current once it warms up } So in this case, w/the AC connector unplugged from power and w/bulb switched OFF, you're looking for a stable 30<->40ohms across the AC cord connector. If you're not seeing that then might try tightening the only wire nut present that goes to the fan and re-CK ohms. Otherwise, unless the other soldered connection looks bad, then you likely need a new fan motor. 6) However, if the fan blade seems bound, resistant to spinning (ie: a flick of your finger should normally yield 5-7 revolutions) then there may be a solvable issue in the area of the rear bearing assy. To verify :: 6.1) Remove the fans rear bearing cap (you may need an ice pick or small screw driver shoved in sideways to hold the machine screw's Philips head while removing each nut). 6.2) Grasping the exposed shaft, if the fan can now be rotated much easier by twisting the shaft in your fingers then the issue is in the area of the rear bearing assy area. Clean the bearing cup well and add a few drops of 3-in-1 oil to the oil matt in the rear bearing's cup that surrounds the bearing. Clean the shaft area well. And pay attention to a small fibrous washer on the shaft {it's height & it's OD -vs- ID might be a bit more than ~1/16-in } and if you see some fibers ( ? fiberglass ? ) flaying outward toward the rear bearing area (when latter is installed) then try to brush them off. Then add one drop of 3-in-1 oil to the shaft where it mates to the bearing. Then re-install the rear bearing's cup via its pair of machine screws previously removed. If the fan now spins freely then it's very likely you've fixed the problem. Making sure the lamp switch is OFF, and no one (especially children) will be touching the exposed AC connections, you can quickly test by plugging in the 300's AC cord (as the fan is wired to always come ON). 6.3) Otherwise, still NoGo then you're likely back to '5)'s need of a new fan motor.

Why doesn't my HP Photosmart camera want to work? It says 'unable to format card'.

It has to be the same type and it must be the same size. The modern trend is for cards with huge capacity, but older cameras had a maximum size, sometimes as little as 256MB, so it won't recognize a 5GB card. Google PhotoSmart (model) Memory Card Specs. Looks like 2GB Max https://www.google.com/search?q=%E2%80%8BPhotoSmart+(model)+Memory+Card+Specs ..

My s7000 is showing Magenta on the screen, is there a fix for that?

If your s7000 camera is displaying a magenta tint on the screen, there are a few potential solutions you can try. First, check if the white balance settings are correctly configured; adjust them to see if it resolves the issue. Additionally, ensure that there's no color filter applied accidentally. If the problem persists, it might be a sensor or hardware issue, and you may need to consult the camera's manual for troubleshooting steps or consider seeking professional assistance for a more in-depth diagnosis and repair.

What are some old and timeless techniques in beauty photography?

We have seen numerous trends in beauty photography, including augmented reality and sustainable photography. However, there are also timeless techniques that will never get old. One of these is monochromatic palettes.Beauty product photography has always been suitable for black and white photography. However, currently, more and more people are going with vibrant and colorful designs - which is great. But, in the end, there is just an appeal that comes with monochromatic palettes and patterns that will ensure that they remain forever.Personally, I think one of the reasons for this is that black-and-white photography gives products a timeless feel. It makes it feel as though they will last forever, and that evokes a sense of nostalgia, so to speak. Other timeless techniques include macro photographs, soft lightning techniques, and classic poses.

My Fujifilm camera wont start up correctly.

This is 12 years old and if it has been left in a cupboard unused for some time, will require a good Fuji service centre to replace the leaking capacitors.
