Re: battery compartment door

Only by examining the camera your self will you find out If you managed to purchase a part- perhaps an installation diagram is available from the same source.

I got a dx4530 w/easyshare Dock II. from a friend of mine. He had been using AA batteries and it worked fine. I went to Best Buy and bought 2 Ni-MH batteries and put them in the camera. I then put the...

In the Kodak cameras of that vintage the original 3V rechargeable battery was made of 2 regular AA rechargeable batteries and a special piece of plastic that pushes some microswitch in the battery compartment. If this piece of plastic is missing, the dock would not charge the batteries. You either need the special CRV3 battery or to charge the normal AA rechargeables with a separate charger.

Broken battery compartment door switch

The switch is a micro switch that is depressed(and not sad :)) by a plastic tag moulded on the battery cover. Once the cover is moved into position and closed, the tag presses on the micro switch closing the switch and thus removing the error message. As with any switch, a switch is simply open or closed, Open = high resistance or O/L, while closed = 0 ohms reistance. You can use a small wire to overcome the switch by soldering the wire to both tags of the switch so it is permenantly 0 ohms. This will send a message to the microprocessor that cover is closed and camera ready for use. Hope this helps.

My easy share CX4530 won't

Mine did that and all it was is the door that holds you batteries in gets weak over time. If you hold or squeeze the door closed and it does not happen then you have found you problem. Clean the contacts and try to "bend" them outward to get a cleaner and tighter connection.

HP Photosmart R927 Battery Compartment door latch

Same problem, The small plastic tab that extends into the slot to keep the battery compartment door broke off. I can't locate a source for replacement part. I disassembled the slide and reversed it, breaking off the little tip that fit into spring, and it sort of works, but a new plastic slide would be much better.

Easy Fix-
I had the same problem. Place the camera upside down with the battery door to your right. There is a plastic plate with the eject switch to the left. It has three philips screws. Get a jewlers screwdriver (Any hobby store, Harbour Freight, etc.) Take out the three small screws. Don't lose them. Get a razor blade and pry up the plate in the line just to the right of the top right screw. Only pry up about an 1/8 of an inch and only that corner not the whole plate. Then you can slant the new battery door so that the top part goes to the left under the plate and then straigten it out so that the tabs seat in the grooves. Repace the screws. Voila.
Good Luck,
