How to replace battery door?

Ugh...I'm stumped. I got the replacement battery door for my camera but can't figure out how to take off the old one and put the new one in place. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Re: How to replace battery door?

I just replaced my battery door. You have to take every screw out of the camera. I used a philips eye glass screw driver. Then, pull the front and back covers apart carefully, its only plastic. There is a pin that holds the door to the rear cover. If you push the battery door button back and fourth the pin will start to show out the side of the camera. I pulled it out once it showed with small pair of needle nose pliers. Just reverse the procedure to install the new door.

Need to replace battery door.

i have not replaced the battery door but have disassembled an S5000 following the service manual

it looks like once you complete the first step 'Removing the R CABINET ASSY' you can withdraw the hinge pin and replace the battery cover without any more disassembly [see attached image]

The camera won't turn on. It's not the AA batteries but could it possibly be the small watch battery in the camera? I'm stumped because the camera was just sitting in a camera bag and is only a year old.

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Battery door replacement

Does this mean you have a replacement door already?

If so, you will need to figure out how the camera comes apart. This is not always easy to do. I suspect there will be screws or snaps hidden. Improper dis-assembly will cause damage to the case and/or finish.

I would contact Canon and ask if there are any repair shops near you that they could recommend.

Remove battery door of Canon A630

This is an old A70, but the way it's done is very similar as I don't think this has changed much over the years. It's a pin design that you have to push out with a stiff unbent paperclip. You push in on the side with the smaller hole. To access the pin you'll need to remove the front and back case covers. See the following:

Battery Door Broken

So far, I was able to find a camera like mine on Ebay that was being sold cheap for parts only, because the LCD was broken. I figure that this amounts to probably what I'd be paying if Kodak offered to sell me a replacement battery door (which they do not). Kodak only considers the wrist strap a "user-serviceable item." Maybe so, but I intend to try to fix this myself. If anyone has done this successfully before, please write. Otherwise, will let you know how it goes.

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.

Replace Battery Door

you may have to remove a few screws and seperate the case a little to slip it in. Some plastic is flexable and it can give a little. If it doesnt look broken that could be good.
