Re: Head movement.

Hmm - I've got one of those. Have you done up the screws on the flange that fixes the bottom of the head to the tripod?

Re: Head movement.

If you cant fix it pop into a Manfrotto dealers and have it checked out it should be a free consultation....

Re: Head movement.

I've got one of them. Normally if it moving its the three bolts that attach to the flange that are loose as Steve said.

Only other movement is going to be down to the handles not being tight enough or release plate not attached firmly enough to camera.
