Battery remove I can open the door, but how do I slide out the battery? The top of the battery is flush with the bottom of the camera inside the battery compartment, and I can't grab it to pull it out.

Can you not hold the camera upright and it should fall a little bit to allow you to grab hold of the end and pull it out.

Otherwise it this isn't happening there may be a mechanism problem.

hope this helps.

Open camera


Looking at the bottom of the camera, slide the oval latch in the center of the card/battery compartment door toward the back of the camera. Holding the latch there, slide the entire door toward the nearer end of the camera, and the door will swing open.
To remove the memory card, press down on the card and it will pop up a bit. Grasp it between your fingertips and pull it out the rest of the way. (It'll probably be easier if you let the batteries fall out first.)

Do you change the batteries


Open battery door on bottom of camera (little plastic slide latch with the words "BATT. OPEN" next to it). Batteries will fall out into your lap. One will roll off onto the floor and end up under some inconvenient piece of furniture.
Replace with Alkaline AAs according to the polarity ("+ -") diagram printed on the bottom of the camera, and molded into the inside of the battery compartment lid.

The Battery Door on my Sony Cybershot DSC-S40 won't open.


No easy solution except:
1. Remove all 3 screws from body.
2. Carefully wedge off the back half of body.
3. The back half is connected to the front half by a small cable. Don't break this!
4. The door has a hinge pin. Wedge up and remove this pin.
5. With small screwdriver, wedge off the door from top. Should pop out.
6. Apply small amount of oil on sliding areas.
7. Reinsert door. If still stuck, see step 5.
8. Reassemble camera back and screw down.
9. The reason for sticking is unknown, but door can still be removed by popping off as in step 5.

The date and time will not save on my canon powershot a560 when it is turned off and on.


Open your battery door. Notice inside that there's a little slide door inside labeled CR1220. Pry open this little slide door and remove and reinsert the encased watch battery (this battery powers the camera's clock). Removing and reinserting might fix it temporarily, but more than likely this battery is getting very low. Recommend going to your local drugstore's battery section and buying a replacement CR1220 battery. They're very common and inexpensive (a few bucks).

Canon A75 Battery door


Never did it on an S1, but on other models it required removing the back face of the camera to access the battery doory hinge pin.

Examine your camera, and if this sounds feasible, remove all screws along the perimeter of the camera (keeping track of their sizes and where they came from, write it down with a crude drawing of their locations/sizes). Also look for screws in the battery compartment, and any visible screws behind flaps/doors. Once all perimeter screws are removed, you should be able to remove the back face of the camera by prying it open from the bottom. Once opened, the pin holding the battery door should be able to be slid out, enabling removal of the old door. Then in reverse slide the pin into the new door, and reassemble the camera and its screws.

Battery cover replacement for the Dimage Z2


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. NOW who needs to buy a battery door? I have a z3 with a fried power board.
