Question about Olympus D-400 Zoom Digital Camera

Olympus D-400 Battery Cover

Battery cover came off. Does not appear broken. However, unable to put it back on slide. Looks like the case has to somehow be loosened.

    The tabs were not broken. However, I was able to remove the small screws, one to the right and the other on the left edge. This allowed me to gently pry the case enough that I was able to put the tabs on the end of the cover back into the slides.

    Just noticed that the battery cover on my D-400 has a broken tab at the end, and on the same edge the tab on the camera front cover that mates with the center tab of the battery cover is broken. This translates to mean that the front edge of the battery cover is only being held to the body by the hinge stub. It's going to require both a battery cover and body front cover to properly repair it. As I begin my quest, I would appreciate any suggestions. BTW, we love this camera.

How do i replace the battery in the garmin streetpilot c330


Follow these steps : 1. Determine that you do have a Garmin GPS with a replaceable battery. Find the information by checking the manual or with a close inspection of the back and sides of the GPS unit. GPS units that have a battery that can be replaced by the owner will have a battery cover lock on the back or side; it looks like a small sliding piece of plastic with slots or ridges.
2 Open and remove the battery cover by sliding the battery cover lock and pulling off the battery cover. In some models, you may have to hold the lock up while simultaneously pulling the battery cover off.
3 Remove the battery by sliding the battery out of the battery cavity. You may need to use gentle pressure to get it to slide out.
4 Put the new battery in by sliding it into the battery compartment. Line up the metal contacts on the battery with the metal contacts in the battery compartment to make sure it is properly installed.
5 Click the battery cover back into place. The battery cover lock should automatically lock and secure the cover. If this does not happen automatically, slide the lock back to the locked position.

    Broken track


    I have the same problem. I contacted Olympus and it is 29.95 plus tax to repair. Right now I am getting around the problem by holding the cover and controlling it as I open or close to make sure the camera turns off and on.

    I purchased a second reconditioned camera from Olympus on the auction site for $35.00 and it arrived yesterday.

    It comes with everything except a remote. The battery is the newer L12B. Considering the cost of a replacement OEM battery and the camera looks new, it seemed to be the best work around to having the camera repaired.

    I keep it because I have the underwater case for this model and to buy a case for another camera is big bucks..

    Error message: battery cover open. This message appears in the window and will not let me operate camera until problem is resolved. The cover is closed, but the message will not go away. I have re-set...


    Hi X,
    There's a little piece of plastic on the battery cover, that presses a switch when you slide the cover closed. Check that manually with a tooth pick and the the battery in place. Don't smash it. I have a Olympus FE -280 and it only happens when I put the cheap Chinese battery in.
    If you are in the least uncertain, call Customer Service.
    Best regards, Paul

    Got a problem with the lense


    I had the same problem with mine after it had been dropped on the ground.  I undid the two screws at the bottom which holds the sliding lens cover on and took the cover off.  Check the small black lever inside.  It might be broken.  I replaced the part from an older model and but the cover back on.  I works fine now.  I hope this helps

    Cover open, unable to take a picture?


    The cover opens in two positions. To completely open the lens cover for shooting images, slide the lens cover over until you hear two clicks. When the camera is on the first position, you can playback images.
