Re: EVERYTIME I CUT MY CAMERA ON IT CUTS RIGHT BACK OFF
Your camera continually shutting off (added with the fact that the battery cover is broken) probably means that your batteries are not making good contact with the hatch lid. You need to strap that battery cover down tight after your sure the batteries are installed correctly. Keep in mind, your going to have to strap that puppy back down every time you change batts. Let me know if this will help you.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

On most cameras you can hold the catch closed with an elastic band around the body of the camera, if necessary with a small square of cardboard over the hatch itself, or several bands, if the hatch actually holds the batteries in place. At least you will be able to use the camera, even if it does look a bit untidy!
I had the same problem and found nothing online to fix it so based on what little I could find and some common sense I got it done fairly easily. Here's what I did...if you need more detail on any step either re-read it to see if you missed something or let me know 'cause maybe I missed something.
Standard warning - you are dealing with small screws, small parts and things that might break. If you damage your camera trying this repair - please don't blame me! <G>
1) remove batteries and memory card
2) carefully remove screws around the outside.
There are: 3 on the bottom, 1 under the plastic usb cover on the left side, 3 on the right side. Once those are out, remove the clip that holds the wrist strap and you'll find 1 more on the top of the camera under the wrist strap clip.
3) starting at the bottom of the camera, gently separate the back cover from the camera body. YOU DON'T NEED TO TOTALLY REMOVE THE COVER!
4) (note the small spring on the battery hatch - when you complete the next step that spring will come out so look at where it is, which way it is and don't lose it!) While holding the cover and camera body apart slightly, use a pair of fine needlenose pliers or possibly tweezers & slide the pin that holds the hatch in place toward the back of the camera until the spring and door come off. You don't need to totally remove the pin.
5) take your new door assembly and put it in place. the fun part is the little spring - the shorter end of it has to go through a small hole at the back of the hinge area, the longer end puts pressure against the hatch. Once the spring is in place, hold it there and slide the pin back into place (I found that just allowing the cover and body to come back together moved it into place).
6) try the hatch to make sure it opens/closes freely and latches
7) put the screws back in place - note that one of them is shorter than all the others - that one goes on the top of the camera under the wrist strap clip
Hope this helps!
Please note - this is the only digital I've taken apart so I'm not likely to be able to help with other makes and models but feel free to ask!
Hold the camera like your going to take a picture. Now turn the camera over to look at the bottom. On the right hand side is a small latch. The latch secures the battery hatch door. Pop the latch and the battery door should open.
Turn the camera back over carefully and the batter should slide out.
Then plug the battery into the charger and you can charge it. Have fun with your new camera!
There are two types of batteries that are suitable for your camera: Alkaline and NiMH
make sure that your batteries are made for a digital camera these seem to fit a bit differently into the digital camera then standard AA batteries.
but what you are saying is ushally the cause of the batteries and nothing to do with the camera, when the unit does power up make sure in the menu the right battery is selected for the camera as well.
I have just done this very thing. I ordered a new replacement OEM LCD from a seller in the US listed on E-Bay. Even with postage it was a third of the cost of sending the camera to Fujifilm for repair (and Fujifilm wanted a couple of quid less than buying a whole new camera!). To Dismantle the FujiFim S5800 and get the back off the camera you need to remove 5 screws, and dont mix them up as they are different lengths. I used a set of those small jewellers screwdrivers to do this. Make sure you have taken the battery's out and taken the carrying strap off. First remove the screw on the side just above the flap where the memory storage card goes. On the opposite side of the camera where the carrying strap bracket is you will find two screws in the recess, just remove the one screw nearest the back of the camera. Now turn the camera up-side-down. You will find 4 screws around the threaded hole for a Tripod. Remove the two nearest the back of the camera (they are also the widest apart). Now open the battery hatch and remove the screw nearest the outer edge of the camera which is effectively below the memory storage hatch. The back of the camera should now be easy to lift away and reveal the LCD screen. Be careful as there is a small semi transparent printed circuit cable that connects the rotary switch to the main body of the camera. I chose to leave this in place as I was reluctant to remove more parts than necessary - however if you choose to leave it in place be sure support the the back bit of the camera as you do not want to strain rip or excessively twist this cable. The LCD screen rests in place between some guides and had a small piece of black tape holding the end down at the ribbon cable end. Use the blade of one of the screw drivers to lift the corner of the tape away. and you can lift the LCD screen up. The Ribbon Cable looks like a push fit but in fact there is a tiny black hinged section holding it in place. Be very careful and lift this up and the old cable can be released and removed. You will find the same system holding the cable in place for the rotary switch so if you want to give yourself working room you could disconnect that in this manner. Fitting is now a reversal of the removal process. Put the ribbon cable into the socket as far as it will go, No force will be required. Clip the tiny black hinged section down and this will lock the cable in place. Re-assemble the camera and remember to fit the memory storage hatch while doing so. Note: the storage hatch has a small plastic lug that presses a switch. When the hatch is opened it cuts the camera off (personaly I think this is a bit of weak point in this camera's design, if this lug or switch wears or breaks the camera is not going to work - but that is by the by for now). Presumably this is so you don't add or remove memory cards while the camera is powered up. This means it is difficult to test the new screen without putting the camera back together. But all being well you should be back up and running. Just take your time, study all the parts first and you should be ok. Don't come crying to me though if you break it - remember all repairs are carried out at your own risk.
yes on the ex-z75 Casio camera there is a internal battery right under the front cover by the speaker wires this battery is a 3.6 volt battery that is soldered on the board. the only what is to make a make shift battery pack and solder it on to the prongs. I do this with out any guarantee that because it is not factory default and they do not sell the battery to any one. most of the time they will tell you the main board has to be replaced. if the main board has to be replaced it is 85.00 plus shipping from my shop but if soldering a 3.6 battery pack works then it would be 40.00 to replace the battery.
Sound like it was dropped and somone lied about it. Mine got dropped and it behaves in a similar fashon...something about a plastic pin that hold the parts of the telephoto lens together.I had a computer wonk guy lok at mine andit is the little pin on the bottom of the lens assembly inside the ring that snaps on and off. Mine would work if you help up on te bottom of the lens but the it stopped again...lotsa luck
