You must contact the manufacture of your camera. With any of the brand names they will sell you the replacement part, or send you to a rep who can sell you the part. If the part is not a user changeable part they will tell you to send the camera to their service rep for service.

Battery life does not last.


The rechargeable battery has come to the end of its life. You'll need to replace the battery and let the new battery go through a complete charge cycle before using.

I have a CANON camera A610 - since i changed the batteries it is not powering. The batteries are new. Please advise the possible problem


Double check that the new batteries are actually good. Note that so-called "heavy duty" batteries are terrible for use in digital cameras.
Next thing to check is the battery door slide switch. This is a tiny black micro-switch in the the battery compartment. It's activated by a tiny plastic piece on the battery door slide mechanism that may have broken off.

Sony Cyber-Shot Battery Compartment Door Broken


I'm having the same problem with my DSC-W1 camera. I dropped my camera and the battery door latches broke.
I found a replacement door on Ebay for $9.95
I followed the instructions in the description and easily removed the broken door from my camera. Now i'm just waiting on the new door to arrive so I could slide the new door in.
I hope this was helpful.

Here's the seller I bought the door from. Hopefully the seller has more doors. =) :

1. Change the battettes for a fresh set --No Go? 2 Do ensure they are correctly inserted 3. Remove batteries and check the contacts both on the cover and base of the compartment. 4. With a piece of foil put a piece of it under the compartment lid to pack it out. No Joy? Still under warranty take/send it back Not under warranty- buy the next one.

My camera will not work


This may or may not apply to your case, but I read a few other articles in this area that mentioned battery type and quality. My ViviCam 3915 stopped working suddenly as well even though the batteries I was trying were showing 1.5+ volts using a multimeter. These were all name brand (like Panasonic, IKEA, Toshiba) but cheaper quality - I tried some higher quality Duracell Ultra batteries and it turned on just fine.

Vivitar Digital Camera 3915 wont turn on!!


The main reason for this problem is the design of the contact plates for the batteries terminals. From inside of the battery compartment lid, you can find two tiny prong shape metal spring. One has small pieces of plastic guides for holding the positive terminal in place. The problem can develope pretty early, depends on how often you open the lid. That spring like metal piece is too delicate to be shifted out of place, even just a very, very slight shft can rest the tiny plastic pieces at the tip of the prong to rest on top of the battery terminal. Using some kind of batteries with bigger, or not too round terminals can contribute to the same problem, even the metal prongs are not shifted. Solution: Check the available batteries that you have, and use those with smaller terminal tips to power the camera. If still not turning on, then the prong(s) might be shifted a little bit. It is hard to check if the prong tips are fully in contact with the battery terminals, because after you push down the lid, it needs to be pushed in to lock. So you can only see they are good in contact before fully pressed down and pushed in. One of the best way is to use some kind of tools to remove the tiny plastic pieces at the tip, but make sure the prong tips still be able to get in contact with the terminals. I, myself just remove the two spring prongs and cut a piece of copper (the old metal tie for electric wiring) a bit longer then the inner length of the lid across, bent the copper strip slightly and sit it on top of the metal door glider. Press down to ensure the ends of the coppper strip touch and stay firm to both inner ledges of the lid. Now, before closing the lid. Cut a piece of plastic (from a ziploc bag) to a size that fits to be slid between the copper strip and the metal door glider. This forms a isolation between the two meatl pieces, the reason is the rubbing of the two metal pieces, if in contact, can cause the batteries installed to be drained faster than to power up the camera itself. This is important, or you will have a new problem with the camera. Finally, as long as you know what you want to do is to ensure a good contact of the prongs and the terminals. You may fine tune and use some other materials to achieve the goal. Your camera might have a different fault developed other than the above findings of mine that is the cause of not powering up. Good luck, Paul

Not turning on


Hello Ariel, 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. Best regards, nightdiver
