Battery compartment cover lug broken

One of the two lugs that hold the battery cover closed has snapped off and the only way now to secure the cover flush to the casing is to use an elastic band around the cover and over the microphone. I can buy a new cover but am a bit timid about actually doing the replace job. Is this something I must take to a professional or does anyone have some instructions or tips on doing this job? Thanks

I ordered a new cover for around 4 euros and it was delivered promptly by mail. It took me some time to get it in place. You don't have to open the whole camera, but it is useful to remove the rubber grip (just by tearing). Underneath are some screws that make the job easier. I finally didn't break anything but I had to use some force. It functions normally again.

OK this is a design flaw. If you fix it or have it fixed with Minolta/Cannon supplied parts, it will break again. I use gaffers tape which has left a nasty residue onn the camera body but keeps me shooting. love the camera, despise the battery cover.

How to Wire On-Board Marine Battery Chargers


Battery chargers are wired into a boat's electrical system. Wiring the charger to a battery switch permits the charging of the individual batteries or battery banks. The switch can be configured to charge both batteries or battery banks at once. Mounting the charger in the vessel keeps the charger where it will do the most good--connected to the batteries. This is useful if you are stuck with low batteries and need a recharge. Power from a generator, shore power or even AC power from another vessel can be used to get you going again

Instructions Things You'll Need:
Battery charger
Battery switch
Battery cable (sized)
Cable cutters
Razor knife
Battery terminal lugs
Lug crimper
Terminal kit
Terminal crimper
Hammer
Step 1

Mount the battery switch with the mounting kit provided by the manufacturer. The switch should be accessible but close to the battery or battery banks.
Step 2
Mount the battery charger in a location that will be accessible but protected from the elements. Mount the charger close to the battery switch to reduce the size of the charger leads.
Step 3
Connect the battery cables to the battery switch. Mount the battery cables onto their corresponding terminal studs on the battery switch.
Step 4
Lay out the battery positive cable from the charger to the switch and cut it to length with the cable cutters. Strip 3/4 inch of insulation from the cable ends with a razor knife. Splice the cable to the hot wire from the charger with a **** connector and the terminal crimper. Crimp a terminal lug onto the battery end of the cable with the lug crimper and a hammer. Connect the terminal lug at the battery switch positive output terminal.
Step 5
Lay out a battery cable from the charger to the battery negative terminal block. Cut the cable to length and strip 3/4 inch of insulation from the ends with a razor knife. Connect the battery negative cable to the charger negative power lead with a ****-splice and the terminal crimpers. Crimp a terminal lug onto the terminal block end of the cable with the lug crimper and a hammer. Connect the terminal lug at the battery negative terminal block post.

Tips & Warnings
Set the switch to "1," "2" or "both" to charge battery bank 1, bank 2 or both batteries at once.

Battery cover latch broken , small lugs to hold cover in place next to the well. Is there a battery compartment available to replace it?


I've tried to find the parts on the internet, but had no luck. Here's what I would do in that case...you can get an "as-is" camera on ebay for anywhere from $11 to maybe $25, depending on how the bid goes. Just make sure that camera has a good battery cover- you can query the seller about that. Then, you can salvage the good battery cover. You will have to take the camera apart, but once you take the bad one apart, you'll understand how it fits together and be able to reassemble it easier. Other than that, your options are repair, and I'm not sure how much a shop would charge you, but often it's just better to buy a new camera, in that case. That's about all I can think of, good luck!

Battery door retaining lugs broken,also the plastic lugs on the main body that the battery door needs to latch onto are broken off ,cannot use camera as unable to secure batteries in the camera ,door will...


KODAK doesn't sell battery doors for any of their models.
A repair for this fault is 24,47 pounds + shipping to the repair centre.
If you already have the battery door; I suggest you will have a local camera TECH to attach the door to the unit.

Fujifilm S1500 broken battery door


Yes, but you would most likely (don't quote me) have to send it back to the manufacture to get it fixed. That means $$$, is there a way for you to tape it on? You really only need the metal piece/plate touching the batteries.

Broken Lugs For a Chevrolet Trailblazer


I might try a different shop. I have never heard of a broken Stud nut making any noise I hope they diagnosed a problem with the noise. Also in-experinced tire tech's over tighten lugs with their impact wrench and snap broken studs

I have a Fuji FinePix S5000 and the battery door catches (on the body of the camera) have broken off. Replace complete body assy??? I am sure mine is not the only one. any help appreciated.


I had this problem also (see below).
0241d48.png

After getting poor results with the duct tape solution, I discovered another work-around. This should work whether it is chipped lugs on the door or on the body.

Firstly I used an old camera flash bracket that screws into the tripod socket, and this holds the battery door in place quite securely. However it was too long, so I cut and filed a piece of aluminium 25mm (1") wide by 2.5mm thick to the right length (around 100mm/4") and shape, and made a hole for the bracket screw.

End result is not exactly like new, but more functional than the duct tape and does not further damage the actual camera:

Breaking Plastic Lugs


Do that
If it is under warranty it will be replaced
If it is not they will mention a price- which yoiu will not like and you will never but a Kodak again.

Or a reel of ducttape can come in useful.
