Question about Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannot open the battery compartment to change batteries

I push the button downwards but compartment door does not open, even if I try to force it.
I have tried to find a service shop for Cannon and can't find one: I live in Vancouver, WA so Portland OR is also ok for service location.

How do I change the battery on the Door Push Button?


Easy....You'll need a very small screw driver. There's a small hole on one of the long ends (most are rectangular in shape). For the brand of door bell I have (Thomas and Betts/Carlon), you push in and downward with the screwdriver. This pushes out the bottom (back of doorbell button). In my case, there are (3) CR 2032 Button Cell batteries in a stacking position. As a quick side note -> If your wireless doorbell button does use button cell batteries. Look to Ebay to purchase them. You can get 6-10 batteries shipped to your front door cheaper. Rather than 3-4 batteries at a retail store + tax...Hopefully, I have lent you some assistance...Thanks for reading

Where do I change the batteries for my mouse? I can't find where the batteries go.
Answer


This article applies to the following products:
All Logitech cordless mice

For some cordless mice or trackballs, there is a slot for the battery door on the bottom of the mouse. Between the slot and the outside edge of the door is a thin strip of plastic. If you compress this thin strip of plastic towards the slot, the catch on the door will release and the door should open.

On other mice, the battery door is on the top of the mouse. Simply slide the top of the mouse cover down and lift the door up. There should be an etched diagram on the door indicating which direction to slide the door.

Once you have opened the battery door, remove the old batteries and dispose of them according to your local waste disposal regulations. Then insert the new batteries into the battery compartment using the diagram in the compartment as a guide. When you have finished inserting the batteries, replace the battery door.

I just got a new siemens hearing aid and can not open the battery compartment it has a lock. The name on the aid is called intuis and I can open it a fraction but not all the way as it has a lock and I can...


Sounds to me that you have inserted the battery incorrectly. If you are attempting to open battery door with any extra force( not normal), it sometimes will not release the door as you have the positive side of battery against the negative side in hearing aid shell.
