Ok i have looked at the manual, so hold the camera in your hand upside down to where your thumb will be pulling the hasp towards you. while doing this with one hand cup the other and smack the camera down into your other hand this should make the batteries move just enough to get the hasp to release. I have had this happen on several models of cameras over the years. Sometimes this works, other times not.

The way I look at it, the camera is useless the way it is, nothing beats a failure but a try. I think the spring tension below the batteries is causing this. I don't like the design of cameras with a hasp locking mechanism on the bottom of the door like this. My daughter has a nikon coolpix that did this exact same thing, I had to fight with it for about 10 minutes to get it open!

I do have a volvo S70 yeat 98. The trunk dont close it seems to got locked up; i tryed to fix it anf the only lock I found its for the seats. Csn sny onr hrlp me how to fix it mysrlf?


This is a diagram of the lock assembly in the trunk lid. The highlighted area shows the lock in the open position. If you look at your lock assembly and it doesn't look like this, it may be in the locked position causing the trunk to not close. use the trunk key and turn the lock cylinder. You may have to use a screwdriver to gently pull on the lock hasp while using the key to unlock. If the hasp is in the locked position, it should open and allow the trunk to close properly

Toyota avalon 2000 front drivers side door closes but lock does not lock it to a solid shut....can still pull door open whats happening


Sounds like a badly adjusted door lock. Either the hasp on the door post is too far in, not allowing the lock to cycle to a complete lock position, or the lock is faulty. The hasp can be adjusted, so try that before looking at replacing the lock mechanism.
To check the door lock, open the door and manually turn the lock mechanism until you hear the lock click in place, then using a round object like a longish 8 mm bolt, hook it into the lock mechanism and pull real hard. It should be impossible to turn the mechanism by hand once it is locked.
It is also possible that the hasp (the bent piece of metal mounted on the door post) is too low. This will allow the lock mechanism to slip over it and not close properly.

Installation of a2500lhc1d


Hold one half of the hasp up to the edge of the door and use the 3 holes as a template to mark where to drill. Drill the holes and attach the plate to the door with carriage bolts of an appropriate length for the thickness of the door. Attach the other half of the hasp with the lock to the mounted half. Close the door and mark where the holes should be drilled for the other half of the hasp. Open the door and drill the holes and attach it as above. You're done!

My master 1500id lock won't move the circle seems very stiff and it won't open. I need to get my stuff for class


Try lock lubricant. Spray it sown around the shackle on both sides, and around the dial. Push the shackle into the lock body to unload the mechanism, then try to turn the dial again - if your hasp has the shackle under tension, it may drag the mechanism and keep it from unlatching.

How can i attach a lock on my refrigerator


Here is an easy way. Buy a lock hasp from a local hardware store. Mount it to the right or left side, depending on which way it opens by holding it up so that the entire lock hasp covers the opening of the door seal width, but allows you enough room to drill the holes into your refrigerator sheet metal. If too small then buy a larger or if to big buy a smaller hasp. Use common sense and your best judgment. Once you have found one the correct size, you will need to mark the position of the holes that you will have to drill through the sheet metal. Once the holes are marked they will have to be drilled. You are going to permanently mount this hasp to the refrigerator with a pop rivet gun, so ensure you want to do this before you drill any holes. You will also want to buy a hasp that has holes no larger than 1/4" to make it a solid mount. Once you buy the pop rivets that fit through the holes in the hasp and are long enough to grab the sheet metal of the refrigerator, use the recommended drill bit size for the rivet. That info is on the rivet box. Once all holes are lined up and the door and hasp will allow you to put a small padlock on it use a pop rivet gun to permanently install the hasp to the side of your refrigerator. After it is installed, simply close the door and put your padlock on it and snap it shut to lock it. I learned how to do this, because sadly I lived with someone that had an eating disorder and the food had to be locked up. I pray you aren't going through the same thing, but this works!

Seat belt won't lock


it could just be that a little corrosion has set up in the locking mechanism and will not let the snap come into the hasp. Squirt some WD-40 into the lock and see if that frees it up by working the hasp in and out of the belt lock

Stuck battery/ScanDisk card


Unfortunately, you have to force the battery door (very carefully) to open it, and find what is wrong with it.

It is more likely that when closed the battery door, it was forced and it slided out of one guide channels.

You need to practice a little bit before to try it with force (genlty but with firm force), but the only way to do it is slide the button to open it, and at the same time slide to the side and pull the battery door, everything at the same time. Try it until you are able to open it.

Using any kind of tool (such a plastic pry tool, a small screwdriver, etc) to force will leave marks in the housing, and it's very possible that the plastic locking tabs will break, causing that you will open it, but unable to close properly again.

Best regards,

Deville 98 glove box is jammed not locked??


If you hang upside down and look up under the glove box there may be access to reach up behind the door, small hands may be a help here, but comprehension on removeing what may be jammed is a different story.
