Question about Kodak EasyShare CX7430 Digital Camera
I've ordered a new battery cover for my Kodak CX7430 since the old one was broken. Unfortunately Kodak refuses to give any advice or instructions on how to install it. The alternative would be to submit it for repair with total cost of 60? (to replace a simple battery cover)!!! So I've decided to take my chance in ordering the 10? replacement cover but I'm affraid to break it when installing. Dis anyone already replace the battery cover? If so, was it difficult? Are there any cautions I should take? Thanks in advance. Regards, Rui
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.

Hi ... I have the same problem that I'm dealing with. What I decided to do was to purchase a broken CX7430 with a good battery door cover and go from there. At least I can take the broken one apart to get the door off and have an idea of what I am dealing with then before I tackle my own camera. The other upside is that the broken camera costs less than the battery door does ... price wise and shipping (go figure). Meanwhile I e-mailed the company selling the door and asked them the difficulty involved (not mentioning that I was not buying it from him of course ... but I knew they were selling the instructions) He e-mailed back and basically said that 2 people out of 1 hundred can't do it and then end up sending the camera to him at a $50.00 charge to fix it ... I'll be taking my chances and I'm pretty confident it will work for me! Good Luck ...
