Casio QV-R51 Battery Door

The plastic latch on my battery and SD card door chipped and will not stay closed tightly. The battery life last only about one hour, if that. Even when the batteries still have power, the "low battery" message appears and the camera will not come on. Any suggestion? I have tried taping the door shut, but that did not work well.

Taping the the door is about all you can do. n Battery short life may be another issue -what type of batteries are you using? Ni-Cad or NiMah are the only acceptable AA type cells[Alkaline do not have the oomph] Coming back the to door, there will not be a repair answer to this I feel- there as usually no spare parts availability.

Door won't stay latched on dishwasher


Make sure nothing is binding the racks which could be pressing against the door when closed. Also make sure the dishwasher isn't installed too tightly in its place, which puts pressure on the latch. You may need to lower the leveling legs a bit.

The door that keeps the batteries and memory card will not stay closed. Can it be fixed?


Mine is broken also. There are 2 tabs in the cover and 2 raised slots on the camera body. When you open the battery compartment, you are supposed to slide the lid forward releasing the tabs from the slots, before the cover pops open. If you don't do this, you ~will~ break the tabs (or the raised slots). Well someone who didn't know this got a hold of my camera tried to force the compartment door open, breaking the raised slots that are part of the camera body.
Take a close look at yours and figure out how this latch is supposed to work and then see which part is broken. If it's the tabs on the door you can buy a replacement door online (do a search) and have someone good with electronics install it. (requires soldering). If (like me) it's the slots on the camera body that are broken, then it's not repairable. The original parts are too small and flimsy to be repaired (designed to fail). My best idea is to find some other way to latch the door closed. I've tried a velcro strap but it doesn't hold the lid tight enough and I've looked in hardware and craft stores for some kind of latch that might work, if I could atach it to the outside of the door somehow, but haven't found anything suitable (it would have to be small but sturdy and attach to the thin plastic of the door)
I'm thinking of taking it to a jeweler because they work with very small parts and might have something that could be screwed into the plastic door and camera body.
If you know of a better fix, please let me know.

Latch Hooks Not Working


This is a VERY common problem, and the fix can sometimes involve replacing the door.

The following site should have the latch/gasket assembly: http://www.repairclinic.com

AFAIK, the top latch can only be replaced with the entire door gasket assembly, but it's not too difficult to do.

A google search on 'GE refrigerator latch' will find you thousands of other (former) GE customers who have had this problem.

Battery door doesn't close tight


Usually part of the plastic battery door breaks off so the sliding latch (when you push the battery door in toward the camera after replacing batteries) can't latch. If this is the problem you can buy a new battery door that will come with a new latch that isn't broken.

SD Card causing problems?


The V3m has an inherent flaw with the Sd Micro Memory Card. Installing the card, which fits extremely tight can damage the electrical contacts in the micro chip socket. This can result in low battery life due to a short to metal chassis of phone and not being able to communicate properly with memory chip. I had my first Razr V3m replaced by Sprint after only 2 days of ownership.When I got my new phone I carefully filed the tab on the Sd Micro Chip so insertion and extraction is much easier.
