Re: Change the batteries cover

I'm not an expert by any means, but that does seem like the way to take it apart and fix it. I have the same camera and the same problem. Where did you find a replacement cover for your batteries? Thanks & Good Luck! Free Eagle

Cannot open battery compartment to change battery's

All you need to do is slide the battery cover to the Open position, then open the battery cover to access the batteries. If it doesn't open easily you may have some corrosion on the batteries holding the cover closed.

You need to go in and physically open the lens cover.
1. take out batteries 2. remove memory card + the small phillips screw.
3. remove the 3 remaining exterior screws. carefully with a small flat tip screwdriver pry the plastic halves slowly. eventually they will come apart. 4. at the bottom remove the small ribbon cable. 5. disconnect the mini motor wire, black and red. 6. unscrew the motor drive for the lens cover and then open the lens. 7. purchase a new lens cover motor. 8. If your screen still says turn off , then press menu and delete some files. good luck ! Work Slowly and carefully and ground your hands to a pipe somewhere before working on the unit. the static electricity could ruin the circuits !

DSC 55W Sony Camera Cyber shot . Zooming function is Unserviceable . When zooming tried -response is " Turn the camera off and then on"

Had the same problem with my W55, Access and then a slight lens movement noise and then "Turn the camera off and then on", which means the motor is trying to push the lens but it is getting stuck. Normally happens if there is some dirt between the sides of the lens. Mine was sand. If there is no noise of the lens motor then the problem may be a dead motor, in that case the following solution will not work. Observe very carefully if there is slight movement and slight motor noise.

Now, the solution of our problem. I have tried various options, like tapping, blowing compressed air but nothing worked.

Needed the camera urgently so tried self help... later realized it is pretty simple.
What you will need is a watchmaker screwdriver set, a clean lens cleaner cloth (I used the microfiber which normally comes with the spectacles), a clean soft cloth and a clean workspace (you can put some white paper)
Remove the battery and the memory card.
There are 7 star screws in total. Five on the sides and two more once your remove the plates, unscrew them slowly, they are very small, so be careful, do not lose them. Now remove the plates on the right and left sides of the camera, they should come out easy. There would be two more screws on the left (facing the lens), open them.
Now slowly pull out the side cover which covers the LCD display, next pull out the cover on the other side. It should come out gently.
Now put the camera flat on the LCD, make sure you keep it on the soft cloth.
Now there would be quite a lot of space around the lens, using two small flat watchmaker screwdrivers, using your both hand try to remove the topmost rim on the lens with the help of the screwdrivers, it just a cover so do not worry. Once the rim comes out there would be enough space, blow air in them once or twice. Now put the battery and switch on the camera, lens should come out. Remove the battery and clean the side of the lens with the microfiber, if there is too much of dirt then you can use a drop of ethyl alcohol on the cloth, you will get it in the most chemist shop.
After cleaning, put the battery again, switch on, take some snaps.
Remove the battery and begin to assemble the camera back, first the side covers, then the two screws on the left side and then the plates and the remaining screws.
Hopefully you will be with a working camera again.

Broken battery door

Most cameras of this design have a small section of the battery cover that is broken and the hinge and case are in goof condition. Use an x-acto knife to remove the old cover. Do this by heating the knife over an open flame and cut away the side area facing the LCD screen. This is necessary due to the "snap-on" engineered fastener that is inside the hinge plate/battery terminal area. The hinge plate will not be damaged this way and will receive the new cover by simply sliding it on until you hear a "click" This is when the engineered fastener is engaged.

The lens cover won't close or open all the way.

Got It! You might try just soaking the camera for a little while like one response said. But I just removed the front face plate. There was accumulated gunk holding the lens cover, and I had the exact same symptoms you're describing. Gently wiped it all clean and presto! all good. You are not opening the camera, just removing the front face. There are three small allen screws on the front and a small phillips screw on the edge.You will need a very small (1.5mm) metric allen wrench (found in common allen wrench sets), and a very small screwdriver for a little screw on the side (found in common micro screwdriver sets). Keep track of which hole each allen set screw came from, they are all different, in fact one appears to be just decoration and has no threads, I just secured it with a tiny dab of all purpose adhesive (Ace hardware brand). Check the tab near the lens goes back in place. Dr. John Christensen

More iris problems

I tried the cover trick with no success. I wanted to get at the iris by opening the camera . After removing a dozen screws, I could not remove the lens becauce of hidden screws. I placed the batteries back in and it works now. No more black screen.

Battery Cover latch is broken

what camera is it ??
Due to the frequency of changing batteries on my camera, I have 'dremelled' a very fin pin hole through teh side of the case, and into the battery holder.
Then opened the case hole up to accept a small screw, then allowed the scre to tap itself into the battery housing.
Small phillips screw nice and flush on the case now.
Works for me, and could save you money and tape !!

Changing battery..can't find

I took my izone 300 apart and replaced the battery with one purchased from Digiplant on Ebay for $9.98, shipping included. The battery is a Lithium Polymer 3.7 volt, 280 Mah, but I used a 3.7 volt, 550 Mah. It improves the battery life immensly and the flash never fails like it did on occasion when it was new. Hope this helps everyone looking for a replacement battery.

About battery door broken in Kodak CX7330

I've got 16 of these cameras and had to replace the door on 3 of them. (I'm a teacher)

it is quite simple, but there are little tiny screws and some dexterity required!
to replace the battery door, you need a super small screwdriver (I've used both an eyeglass size and the screwdriver that came with my son's tech deck!) . you'll have to unscrew all of the small screws that hold on the back of the camera. remember which screws go to which hole - because some are longer than others. once the screws are out, you'll have to gently pry off the cover. carefully - you dont want to crack the camera case. you'll also want to be careful not to touch the sensor, which will be exposed with the case off.

NEXT you;ll have to pry the little spring out of the battery door to actually remove the old door. you'll probably have to use a screw driver to pull the spring on the new door back enough to fit back into the holes. that's really all there is to it. replace the cover and the screws.
