Removing oxid

31 March 2008 - 11:30 AM


I'll get my spare parts soon, so I'm on the way to take my Ike housing apart for service.

I've got some oxide on a couple of the push-buttons and wonder what the best way to remove it is?

I assume that it's not such good idea to put the buttons in the ultrasonic cleaner?

Any suggestions? Vinegar?

What about greasing the small o-rings for the buttons? Do you use the same amount as on the port and housing o-ring?



Unknown slug

I hope that there is someone on this forum that can help me to identify this small slug.

The pictures are taken at 4 meters depth at Grand Hotel lagoon in Hurghada, Egypt



Hang Time

14 January 2008 - 10:32 AM

I was on my way up the line to do my safety stop at 5 meters when I saw that my friends where perfectly aligned in the middle of the sun.

We had really strong current so they had nothing else to but to hang on to the line and passively watch me take some pictures. The current was also perfect for me since that made my bubbles drift out of the way :ninja:

I hope you like it.

Broken Ike D200 housing

15 October 2007 - 12:20 PM


After my dive in the pool when I rinsed my housing in the shower I realized that one of the push buttons where sticking out longer then it should. When I looked inside the housing I could see that the metal part (don't know the English name for it but in Swedish it's called "springryttare") that is keeping the button in place have split into two pieces.

I have no idea how it could happen but now I'm in big trouble since I leave Sweden for work in Egypt in two days with a whole in my housing. :)

I'll try to look around in my local hardware stores tomorrow, but since I live in a small town my hopes to find a new one before my trip is unfortunately low.

Can anyone else think of what kind of shop except a hardware store that might have what I'm looking for?

The button that came out is the lower on of the four that controls the D200 joystick.
