So get ready with your screw driver.

I am posting a link below... will give you an idea of how to disassemble a A650... The assembly will of course be in the reverse direction.
Keep the screw carefully... You will only need to understand a part of the whole process.

I don't know how to open the battery door for the


Slide the latch in the center of the battery cover toward the front of the lens, then flip open the cover. It's hinged toward the center of the body, so it flips open in that direction.

There's an illustration in the "Preparations" section of the Basic manual (page 5 in my copy). If you need manuals, you can download them from

The latch for the battery cover on my Power Shot A720 IS is broken. Can it be fixed?


Probably not as the cause is most likely broken molded plastic parts that where to small and thin to last very long. Seems to be a common problem on this otherwise great pocket camera. Use tap or a rubber band to keep the battery cover closed so the contacts still work. Bad design by Canon.

A630 will not power on. Says batteries are dead.


You have to clean your battery compartment contacts. To do this Dampen a Q-Tip swab with rubbing alcohol and clean the contacts well. Also you'll want to clean the battery and charger contacts as well. Thank you, Dana

My battery cover is broken and the camera will not power on. Will the camera work without a battery cover?


Hi,
Very often they won't as there are spring contacts onto the battery inside. The battery needs pressure to keep it in contact.

Remove battery door of Canon A630


This is an old A70, but the way it's done is very similar as I don't think this has changed much over the years. It's a pin design that you have to push out with a stiff unbent paperclip. You push in on the side with the smaller hole. To access the pin you'll need to remove the front and back case covers. See the following:

Canon lens cover won't open


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
