The camera itself doesn't have a battery. If you have a light meter in the finder however, then the battery for it is in the finder itself. Press the button the back on the left side while at the same time, push the lever over on the finder. That will release the viewfinder.

Look underneath and you will see the battery cap. Unscrew that and you'll see the compartment. If it is an old FTn finder, then it will likely take the mercury batteries that are about 1.35V. They don't sell those anymore as mercury is illegal in consumer batteries, but if you do a search on eBay for 1.35V WEIN cells you should be able to track down replacement batteries.

You could put Duracell PX625 batteries in, but they ar 1.5V and thus will give inaccurate meter readings.

How can i open the battery door of nikon coolpix l3


Most camera battery compartments have "raised lines" on the cover. They usually suggest that you put your finger or thumb on that surface and push with a sliding motion to open the cover. Again, there are many different models, but the Coolpix I have seen have that kind of opening device. Hope this helps!

Open battery compartment


Spray WD-40 around the compartment door and try to let it trickle inside the compartment. That should break the acid corrosion buildup that holds the door from opening.

Are yo using a stock Nikon battery or an aftermarket brand?? Nikons cameras are all famous for their batteries not staying in their compartments tight which means your battery in not getting a good, solid connection. Open the battery compartment and put a tiny piece of folded paper on top of the battery (on the end where you close the door, not the side with the contacts) and then carefully close the lid, this will create more pressure on top of the battery making a stronger contact. Hope that helps.

How do I remove the battery out of My NIkon D60?


Open the battery cover by sliding the latch toward the center of the camera and flipping the lid up. Holding the other side of the camera, lightly slam the end with the open battery compartment against the cupped palm of your other hand and the battery should slide out a little. Grasp the battery and pull it out the rest of the way.

Have got a joe hunt magneto and i want to put it into my triumph 750 1970 model is there a diagram for this or is there instructions on how to install it


I ran one of those on several 60s-70s Triumphs.....great ignition!

Both plugs fire at the same time so there is no left/right to worry about.

Remove spark plugs and gap .018. Remove timing cover (right hand side of engine) over battery ignition points.
Disconnect and tape (insulate) all battery connected wires. Better yet, unhook battery hot wire from battery terminal.
Hold breaker cam in opposite direction of rotation (advanced position) and rotate engine until the points on #1 cylinder just start to open. Note: Use .0015 feeler gauge.
Remove breaker plate, breaker cam advance mechanism, and dowel pin from internal taper if your model used a dowel pin to position breaker cam and advance mechanism. CAUTION Do Not Rotate Engine. If engine is rotated, reverse rotation until piston is down and the cylinder at least one inch before top center on the compression stroke.
Rotate engine in normal direction of rotation until piston is 5/16 from top center on compression stroke. Install magnetos adaptor plate and adaptor shaft in cam taper. DO NOT TIGHTEN SHAFT. CAUTION 1963 to 1970 Triumph unit construction twins have a different length taper on shaft and internal threads are dissimilar. Suggest checking threads and taper. 1963 to 1970 bolt has BSF 1/4 x 26 threads. 1971 and later bolt had 1/4 x 28 thread. Early shafts are marked with the letter "A". Later shafts are marked with "B".
NOTE: Some applications will require drilling and tapping engine with 1/4 x 20 for better security of magneto mounting adapter. Some customers with severe service report that they heli aced adaptor to cam cover with approximately one inch length bead, top and bottom for security.
Remove Magneto cover. With shaft slightly loose in taper mount Magneto so that points are just starting to open and bolts are approximately in center of slot (for timing adjustment later).
Carefully remove Magneto and tighten center bolt in shaft. Re-install Magneto and time. Install cover and plug wires. Hook up ground wire to a separate kill switch to ground only. DO NOT HOOK ANY BATTERY CURRENT TO MAGNETO.
Point Gap .012 to .015

My nikon 775 just won't start even after i put in a new battery (i thought it was a battery problem). any clues on what i should do before i retire if permanently?


Hi

The Nikon Coolpix 775 can be powered using a EN-EL1 rechargeable battery or a disposable 2CR5 type battery (Panasonic, Duracell, Maxell etc). If you are trying to use an EN-EL1 you may want to try using a 2CR5 - this would prove if the battery charger you are using to charge the EN-EL1 battery is working correctly.

You can also try and check if the contacts inside the battery compartment are clean - the camera is quite old and there will normally be some dirt deposits after that length of time.

Hope this helps.

How to open battery door to recplace battery?


On the bottom of the camera you'll find a plastic tripod mount and the battery compartment. The door covering the battery compartment is fairly sturdy, and it has a locking mechanism. As you can see, the Coolpix 4600 and 5600 use two AA batteries.

My Nikon N2000 works great but it has one problem , on one side of the battery compartment the two aaa dies very quickly but not the other two aaa batterys


You may have some corrosion under the battery compartment causing a short that drains the batteries. You can safely remove the battery compartment with a small cross point screwdriver. Remove the batteries, there should be 5 screws, The only concern is that some models had wires soldered at the contact end, but most had only spring contacts. Check the backside and end of the compartment for a white or green build up.

I have a new Nikon D3000 and find the battery will not eject when I open the compartment. It comes out about 1 cm only and I don't want to force it out


This is somewhat a 'design fault' of Nikon. This way the battery won't jump out and get lost so easy. It will come out in some position. Keep trying.

The little clip on the battery cover on my Nikon Coolpix 4300 has broken. I see I can buy a new one online, is it worth it?


Mine has broken as well. It appears this clip is just to keep the battery from falling out as you open the battery door. It will function perfectly fine without the clip. Just be careful not to drop the battery when you open the battery compartment.

Hope this helps,
-Tor
