Question about Kodak DC3400 Zoom Digital Camera
Kodak no longer sells the DC3400 camera. The battery door broke on mine so I purchased a replacement door on ebay. Are you able to give me instructions on how to take the old one off and put the new one on so I don't have to mail it in to Kodak and pay the expensive repair cost?
I had the same problem. Place the camera upside down with the battery door to your right. There is a plastic plate with the eject switch to the left. It has three philips screws. Get a jewlers screwdriver (Any hobby store, Harbour Freight, etc.) Take out the three small screws. Don't lose them. Get a razor blade and pry up the plate in the line just to the right of the top right screw. Only pry up about an 1/8 of an inch and only that corner not the whole plate. Then you can slant the new battery door so that the top part goes to the left under the plate and then straigten it out so that the tabs seat in the grooves. Repace the screws. Voila.

The Battery Door does not slide all the way off! It only slides an eighth of an inch and then
swings open. Two little plastic screw on the door act as hinges preventing the door from
completely coming off the camera.
Trying to slide the new door into position would probably snap one or both screws off,
ruining the replacement door. They must be entered into the grooves in the camera body
CAREFULLY to prevent damage as they are fragile. Be careful. hdave1

The battery door slides off. Holding the camera upside down, press your thumb on the door and move it toward the side of the camera to which the carrying strap is attached. Note the correct positions (+ & - ends) of the batteries and insert the new ones in the same positions. To reinstall the cover, reverse the above process and slide the door on until it snaps closed.
