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.)

Hi, I have a Sony DSC T70. The battery door for the camera doesnt close now as the latch just came sliding out and I am not able to fix it.... Do i have to replace the whole battery door for it and if...


Hi, With a battery door like that you can tape it shut, while not the most visually appeasing fix it is the cheapest. Your other option is to order a battery door for the camera, http://www.ownta.com/sony-dsc-t70-camera-repairing-battery-door-battery-cover-replacement.html has it for $45, or you can contact Sony and order one directly from him. The only thing I'll caution you about with replacing the battery door is that you do have to disassemble the entire camera to install it.

On the bottom of the camera there is the area where you slide open and put the batteries in. The little "door" that slides open broke apart and I can't keep the door closed. Can you buy that...


I doubt it, but you could just tape it shut. You might contact Kodak but like I said, not much change for a part like that, you might be able to purchase the case but pretty expensive and probaby very difficult to install the guts into. if you have all the parts to the door, you might be able to glue it back together.

How to remove the battery from nikon d3000


the little trap door on the bottom houses both the memory card and the battery. you have to push the battery slightly to release it. i fond the easiest way at that point is to tip the camera and the battery usually slides right out.

Stuck battery/ScanDisk card


Unfortunately, you have to force the battery door (very carefully) to open it, and find what is wrong with it.

It is more likely that when closed the battery door, it was forced and it slided out of one guide channels.

You need to practice a little bit before to try it with force (genlty but with firm force), but the only way to do it is slide the button to open it, and at the same time slide to the side and pull the battery door, everything at the same time. Try it until you are able to open it.

Using any kind of tool (such a plastic pry tool, a small screwdriver, etc) to force will leave marks in the housing, and it's very possible that the plastic locking tabs will break, causing that you will open it, but unable to close properly again.

Best regards,

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).

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:

I have a Canon Powershot A410 which does not remember the DATE & TIME setting when powered off.


The camera's clock battery has worn out. On the bottom left side of your camera is a little grey plastic slide door. Use your fingernail to pry it open and remove the CR1220 battery (pay attention which side goes up). Take it to the battery department of your local drug store and buy a replacement. It's a very common battery and should only cost around $3.

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).

INFO ON REPLACEMENT DIGITAL CAMERA SCREEN


Screens for the Z1275 can be found on Ebay for as little as $20 w/shipping. The rear case of the camera is held in place with 5 screws, one of which is under the left side panel (looking from the rear). Make sure the battery and SD card are removed before starting. Remove the right side panel by removing the two black screws and by opening the battery door it will help give you access to lift it away. Remove one chrome screw on the bottom back and one black screw the bottom left holding the left side panel in place. Slide the left side panel downward and remove the last screw underneath. The rear case is now held in place by several snap-fit points around the edge. Using a small nylon pry tool, strong fingernail, or a small flat screwdriver, work your way around the case and carefully pry the sides and bottom enough to release the rear case. Once the back is removed you can release the LCD from its frame by gently prying the frame around the LCD and lifting it up to gain access to the ribbon cables attaching it to the circuit board. The larger cable is held in place by a locking bar on the socket that has to be lifted to release it. Using care not to break it, pry the bar up so that it pivots 90 degrees. The smaller cable uses a slider that can be released by pushing the two tabs on either side of the socket toward the cable until it stops (only a millimeter or two). At this point the cables should slide out quite easily. Reverse the procedure to install the replacement LCD.
