Very easy to replace door. Remove base plate (3 screws). Remove 1 screw found in battery compartment. Lift corner of battery compartment (right where you took the screw out) up about 1/4". No more or you will break the opposite corner. Use a piece of picture hanging wire and push the hinge pin from the outside toward the inside until you can grab it with tweezers and pull it right out. Rest is simple.

Broken battery door


No. Duct tape will hold the battery but it won't make contact. Without something connecting that end of the battery to the circuitry in the camera, you may as well leave it empty.

I have a canon AE-1 35mm camera. When I get film developed some of the pictures have a faint red or some times yellow strip down the middle of the picture. what is the cause?


This is a classic sign of a light leak in the camera. Usually this is caused by the deterioration of the sealing foam on the edges of the back where it closes. Check this foam and see it's condition. If it is sticky or doesn't hold it's shape or is not there at all then you will need to have it replaced. There are kits available for about $20 that you can get to replace the seals yourself or you can take it to a camera shop and they will do it for not too much.

Nikkormat 35mm SLR light meter not working!


1) Clean the battery contacts and put fresh battery.
2) Open the top cover and clean the meter switch ( located and the wind cam )
3) Meter needle maybe stuck at the rest position. Remove the stopper and replace or clean.
4) If none of these help, check the meter cells and resistor band under the shutter dial behind the lens mount ( hard to do.)

Contact Canon at their website. Battery doors are a common replacement item and they're relatively inexpensive and easy to replace.

I have dropped my Rollei AFM35 and damaged the battery cover and need a new one,what chance?


Normally you'd have next to no chance: not many AFM35's were made and they mainly appealed to well-off, older, amateur photographers. As a result used ones are rarely for sale and parts donors are as rare as rocking horse droppings. If you do find a parts donor they've likely been dropped damaging the battery cover which as you have discovered is exactly where the camera tends to land.

On the plus side, the cover on this model is a round bayonet type fitting much like the type used on some film SLRs and sometimes on motor drive covers. I don't currently have an AFM35 in my collection but I do have a Canon Sureshot Classic 120 and the battery cover looks like it may well be a functional replacement for your damaged one. As a first point of call visit a camera repairer or a large used film camera outlet to try a few covers for size. if you're in the UK and in the London area then Mr.Cad in Croydon is hard to beat for odd parts like these. I'm confident that you'll find a cover which fits, but you may need to do a little surgery to transplant parts from the old cover to the new to get a functional cover.

Sureshot Classic 120's are fairly easy to find and go very cheaply (£15 or so on auction sites). If you see one in good condition then you've nothing to lose in trying it: even if the cover does not fit you'll discover that the camera originally cost about the same as the Rollei and does pretty much everything the Rollei does. The light metering is highly reliable and the spot metering is superb. I can honestly say that the 38-120mm zoom lens outperforms some of my Leica and Zeiss T* primes and in my opinion is the best lens ever fitted to any compact 35mm which I've owned.

I hope that you've found my suggestions to be of some use and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

I have a Canon sure shot TeleMax with broken battery box door.


Yes, it's very easy to replace, once back cover is removed.
There are no diagrams available anywhere.
You'll have to remove all screws you see and remove first front cover and then back cover.
