Replace Battery Cover

I bought a replacement battery cover and I am looking for instructions on how to install. The obvious 2 screws that looked like they held the hinge cover released nothing.

Re: Replace Battery Cover

To get to the battery door you must remove the back, to remove the back you must remove the top of the grip (shutter button and dial and WT lever). remove top of grip... 1) starting at the bottom of the plastic strip (along the front edge of the grip) that holds the shutter button, slide upward, the strip will bow outward and after about 3/16", the bottom's free. the only other thing holding it in place is a bit of double-stick tape and a similar clip at the top. CAREFUL! there's a spring under the button that's easy to lose. 2) Inside the battery case, front battery, all the way at the top, there's a tiny phillips screw, pull it. 3) peel away the right side rubber grip right by where your thumb meets the W on the W/T lever. 1st hole you'll see is a springy clip, keep going around to the right til you find a screw. pull that. 4) back to the springy clip hole, pushing inward on the finger, the top will come off straight up. leave it hanging, you just need it out of the way so the back can come loose. remove the back... 5) bottom of camera, remove 2 screws nearest the CE label and one outboard of the rearmost battery. 6) viewfinder cap: 4 screws, skinny on top, fatter on the bottom. the cap pops off. 7) lcd cover/frame: pull away from viewfinder(top) edge about 1/4 inch. the bottom's held by fingers; they need to slide to the left 1/8", then that's off. 8) remove screw @ lowerleft of lcd. now the whole back will slide rearward. 1st thing loose is memory door, remove it. slide the back off, out of the way. you'll now see that the battery door is held on by two hinge pins, not one continuous. the rearmost pin will slide left into the memory cover area, and the door will flex enough to remove it toward the front. trickiest part of reassembly is the spring under the shutter button. balance the spring on the camera, put the button into place. hold it in place with the screwdriver through eye of plastic strip, leaves plenty of room to seat the strip. lose a screw? I did, and the least-needed one is the one pulled at #3.

How do I replace the canon sd40 battery door. it wont stay hooked, looks like a pice broke off in the hinge

Ebay was selling one for a few dollars in working condition, you are better off buying a used one or a none working one making sure the battery door is good. You can replace the battery door but it will require you to take the front and rear cover of the camera off. You will have to take off the little screws all around the camera and the pry apart the front and rear case.
Sometimes you can use a pair of small needle nose pliers and just squeeze the ends of the plastic battery door inwards from the hinge and the battery cover should pop out. To install the new battery door you do the same, squeeze the plastic axle and push it into the cameras case.

Replacing a battery cover

I have the same problem with my camera. Mind telling me where you got a new battery cover? :-) I need one!
Maybe you have already found out how to replace the cover, but anyhow, here´s what I think:
I have looked closely at the cover and it seems like you should be able to just loosen the only screw on the inside of the cover and then you should be able to just slide the cover off and replace it with your new one. :-)
Hope this helps! :-)

Batter door replacement

I have the 530, You have to remove the 6 screws holding the covers together. The back cover comes off in one piece, you also have to remove the front cover too (which is held with 2 inner screws, you better use a magnitized screwdriver) please use caution not to disturb the inner board and parts.
Then use a thumb tack to push the holding pin completely thru(watch the spring so not to lose it) remove old door replace with new door, remember to replace the spring before pushing the pin and door back in place.....
Good luck, this can be frustrating if you dont have the right tools, and patience!

How to replace battery cover for Kodak Dx6440

We had the same problem dropping the camera, and ordered a pair of new battery covers. I was able to install this by carefully removing the cover screws and slipping the pins into their slots. I am sure you probably got it by now.

This problem was before the one posted about start and then die. The "expert" response posted was worthless. This whole website seems to be a collection of anecdotal semi-worthless stuff.

Perhaps other topics may contain more relevant valuable commentary.

Cx7330, battery cover BROKEN

Remove batteries and memcard. Remove 8 screws, the screws on the bottom are smaller than the side screws. Rear cover will slide off, watch out for loose LCD screen. Two protruding slots on the bottom hold the battery cover hinges. Hold battery cover wide open and at an angle to snap hinges into place. Reinstall rear cover and screws.

Replacement Battery Cover Assembly

If you're handy, you can replace it in about 3 minutes. Don't attempt it unless you're willing to risk tearing a thin flexible circuit under the rear cover. Looking at the camera from the rear, remove the screws on the right hand side ( 2 ? ) then the screws across the bottom - open the card door, remove the card, and wedge a knife blade between the front and rear cover halves - the card door will be loose with an attached spring coming free. No need to remove the rear housing completely, just enough to expose the tracks for the battery cover hinge. Remove the old door, noting the position of the opening spring at the hinge, by angling one hinge out first. Insert the new battery cover and the card door in reverse order.
