Breaking Plastic Lugs

Battery Compartment, one of the tiny plastic lugs that hold on the cover has broken off, making the entire camera useless! Also one of the Plastic lugs holding in the Card readre cover is also showing signs of plastic stress! I am very careful with my Camera, so to me this is either a bad unit, or a designed in floor to facilitate upgrades Think I will box it up and send it to Kodak - what do you think

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.

Have a Scott Bonnar Greenkeeper. Top had come loose. Pull start action works but will not engage to turn motor. Took top off. Where do 2 plastic lugs locate that were loose inside cover.


you will see two holes on the cover that the lugs pivots fit in
most likely the pivots have broken off and that is why the lugs were loose in the cover

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.

I. have just bought a classic 250 honda superdream the battery has gone flat and i dont know how to remove the side panel im scared of breaking any of the lugs any advice would be grateful .Thanks


The lugs get a bit fragile over the years and are indeed prone to break. Spray some WD40 into the areas where the grommets / lugs sit. Wiggle the cover to lubricate the plastic and the grommet. Now pull ( or pry) straight outward to pull the plug out of the grommet. The illustration shown is from a CB200 but yours will be the same. Some covers have a small bolt at the bottom edge. Some have slots that fit into a slotted metal fitting. Do the top lugs first. Good luck. You may need to get friendly with a bit of super glue if a lug breaks.

Camera dropped an the lens broke off the camera


I have the same problem - the plastic bayonet lugs are the weak point on the lens assembly, but better that then breaking the camera body mating ring. I've dissasembled the rear of the lens and will try to reglue the two split lugs with cyanoacrylate glue. Be very careful not to mix up the 3 different types of screws, avoid damage to the multi-contact plate ribbon cable, and to not to loose the backfocus shims! Cheers.

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:
