The battery door latch is most likely damaged/broken. Try using a piece of duct tape to keep it closed. I've done this on several cameras with battery door latch issues & the doors stayed shut just fine.
I see this message at least 3 times, so it must be important.
Looks like a mechanical problem. But not having the camera in my own hands I have to do some educated guesses.
Could be something broke off. Could be a small chip of plastic or a very small piece of metal. Difficult to repair it yourself. But you also could look if there is something in the battery compartment that should not be there. Could be just a little bit of debris, that is lifting the battery, (not if the battery is behind the lock) or debris in the door, so you can't close the battery compartment complete, and it can't be locked.
If you can't find anything and it looks as if the battery compartment closes correct, and still you only can't lock the door, please visit your dealer or the Nikon service centre closest to you.
I have a handy can and had trouble with the cage closing with a tape installed. I found the most unlikely problem the rotation of the drun was slowing up and then siezed eventually.
I took it apart abd it was not a good idea to go any farther into the cage to extract the drum. The drum goes for over 250 dollars the price of half of the camera. Well I figure what the heck I experimented. I soaked the hole cage and drum in Denatured alcohol and unn siezed it. then I blew it out with the air compressor and really made the head spin. Then as I put the unit back together I found i was not careful with the audio ribon cable lost sound but the unit did work for silent movies. It was junk anyways over 250 dollar 3 head drum.
try this quick fix. check and see if the video head is bound. I have seen alot of these stick. put your figure on the top edge of the head only and see if is free spinning on not. sometimes you can more it one way or the other and free it up. this problem could also just require a tape path cleaning. anything sticky on the tape path or head will cause this.
HI, ERROR CODE E03 MEANS THE THE TAPE IN YOUR CAMCORDER IS TOO SLACK, ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS EJECT THE TAPE & TIGHTEN IT USING YOUE THUMB LIKE I DID, ONCE I PUT THE TAPE BACK IN THE ERROR HAD GONE ( FOR EVER I HOPE!) GIVE IT A GO ANYWAY, HAYLEY X
i bought this camara from someone with the same problem for 5 bucks at a yard sale. an easy fix. 1. blow the dust out 2. charge the battery. 3. put the tape in and when it gos down into the case close the door and turn it on, run tape on ff then rr then turn camara to record. if it says to eject tape at any time, eject it and do it again. it worked for me.
You need a new battery lid. The problem is the lid has a pin that when closed properly, allows the battery to power up the camera. You can get one for $30.00 on Ebay item number 7623965577 if you act fast. This is a good camera and would be worth $30.00 (plus 5.50 shipping) to fix it.
Please let me know how it works.
