Hi Bernhard, basically I share your opinion about the Super Macro Mode, which gets only activated if the Zoom is in the Tele-Position. However I don’t have any idea how to re-adjust the position of the cogwheels in Step 14. I would try to block one cogwheel (the small, white one), try to move the big black one and see, if something changes.
Sorry, I can’t help you here. You may try www.korgforums.com. There are some discussions about broken Volcas.
Nice to hear that it worked.
Sorry man, I don’t know why iFixit doesn’t notify me :( In case you haven’t already fixed or thrashed your ESX : The LM2596 should be potent enough to drive the 1A of the ESX. Nonetheless I would monitor the output voltage of the LM2596. If it drops after a while below a relevant value maybe there is an error in your design, so that the LM2596. doesn’t deliver enough power. You could test your fix with an external 3,3V power supply instead of your LM2596. If this works then maybe there is still an error in your design.
Hi, I have written this instruction twice. I had some problems with the first not being published. Please have a look at the other instruction:
Replacing a fuse in the Electribe SX (ESX)
The EMX Service Manual is attached there.
Hi Les, this might be one of the four “rubber tubes” which are wrapped around the screws which hold the lens. These are the screws with the big silver heads which you can see on the three pictures of step 13. I guess the rubber tubes are there to dampen the vibration.
Hi Karel, I am very sorry that I did not answer your question right away. I did not get a notification from iFixit that someone has commented.
Regarding your problem: If I remember correctly there is a small mechanical switch which gets activated when you turn the lens. Then the camera knows that someone wants to take pictures and switches on in “Take Pictures Mode”. Maybe this explains as well why you can play back but not record. This is be the point where I would look first.
I scrolled through my pictures but unfortunately I did not photograph this switch.
Hi, what Happens if you hold the PLAYBACK-Key on your X10? Does the camera start in Playback-Mode?
Hi Mauro, if it fits your wallet and if I were you I would give the camera to your niece and buy myself a new one. There are so many awesome cameras out there.
Regarding the flash, if you take the battery out and leave the camera alone for two days there should not be any voltage left. To be sure you could hook up a multimeter like I have shown in Step 10, right picture, and measure. As soon as you hook up the multimeter the voltage will slowly drop to zero volts.
The CCD Sensor is mounted together with the lens, you can see this unit on the very last picture on the bottom right corner of the green mat. Four screws hold a PCB, to which the sensor is mounted IIRC. I didn’t open this, there was no need to do this and I did not want to deal with an misaligned sensor afterwards. So to say, yes, you have to open the whole thing to get to the sensor.
Thanks for the very helpful guide. I used it to fix the heating problem on my HP Pavilion DV7-4159EG.
I have one addition: Leave the upper left and upper right screw in place until you open the laptop to remove the keyboard (Step 5 to Step 6). To clarify: If the laptop is lying on the back like on the first pictures. I mean the most upper left and right screws, right below the display hinges. These two screws are on my model a bit bigger and "shinyer" than the rest of the screws.
Why? The hinges are mounted by one screw into the plastic casing. This is very flimsy. In addition, the hinges are hold in place by the two screws holding the casing together. If you remove theses screws too early it may happen that the hinges will rip out of the casing if you open the laptop. At least this happened with my notebook on the left hinge. It isn't usually a problem, because you can bend them right when you put the DV7 together. But it is one mount point less for the display.
