    rubber bands did not work, too much downward pressure, the parts broken are on the door AND the camera body, but i will try a local repair shop but am not hopeful

  • goodwitchnow Dec 01, 2008

    the dogs are broken on the body as well as compartment so replacing just the compartment cover would not help..what is the plastic repair workshop, couldn't find on line..is it a buisness?

  • goodwitchnow Dec 01, 2008

    if it were only the compartment cover i would have already done that

  • goodwitchnow Dec 01, 2008

    i think it is not properly fixable bu twill be in a city next week and try out a repair shop, thanks for trying

Even cheaper, try this link out:

http://shop.ebay.com/items/?_nkw=digital+camera+parts&_sacat=0&_fromfsb=&_trksid=m270.l1313&_odkw=750+parts&_osacat=0

I do not like to endorse ebay, as it is very good at endorsing itself, but if you have the time to search, this is an alternative place to search;-)

I fixed mine with a rubber band, but that is not a good solution.

go to a local repair shop and ask them to order the part for you.

    If you go to a local repair shop, they will order the replacement from Olympusand repair the camera for approx. $50/$60, that is a good fix, and it will work much better than using bands or sealant tape.

    Rubber band can work, I did the same on my Sanyo, I put 3 natural rubber bands wide nearle half inch each, sure they work.

    However that is just a temporary adjustment, my rea solution to this problem is going to a camera shop and having it fixed for less than factory repair.

Can battery compartment be repaired when tabs are broken off which hold lid down?


possibly...if it is the body where the tabs are broken off the manufacturer (Olympus) might be able to replace the body shell. I'd check with them.

If you have all of the pieces, you can use crazy glue to make the repair, otherwise take your camera to any camera shop where they will have access to whatever broken components need to be replaced. Regards, Joe

Sentry s3877 battery compartment broke


I had the same problem with my Sentry S3877. I found the exact 4-battery replacement (with snap attachment on top!) at an online electronics.retailer, but had to purchase a lot of three. I don't need the other two, so I'll sell them for just $6 each to the first two folks to contact me mark@irregardless.net.

Oh, by the way, once the batteries went dead, you lost your combination! When you pop the new battery compartment in, the factory default combination will be in effect. That default combination is in your user's manual. I'm currently searching frantically for mine! Gee, how could I have misplaced it ... I just had it in my hands when I purchased the safe 10 years ago !!!

Anyone know the default combo for the S3877?

Batteries


The E-10/20N battery holders are designed to fit the longer type CRV-3 lithium batteries and conventional sized AA NiMH batteries. Once installed into the battery compartment the AA sized batteries will make an electrical contact with the camera
