Broken latch on camera back

The ' hook latch' on my camera back broke - this happened once before and I was able to superglue the piece back ... this time ... I lost the piece - I have been taping and using a rubber band to keep the door shut ... Can I purchase a replacement 'back'??? Is there any other suggestions to keep the door latched???

An authorized Nikon dealer should be able to order the back for you. If there's no dealer in your area, Nikon's service center info is on their web site. There's currently one new back on eBay for US $98..95 from a Canadian seller with good feedback. My only other suggestion is the old joke about pros. How can you tell if a photographer is a real pro? His camera has gaff instead of duct tape.

Charger


If the end of the charger broke off inside your nabi, it will be difficult, but you can get it out. Ideally you still have the broken piece. Superglue the end, put it back in and let it set, then pull it out quickly. If you don't have the rest of the broken piece, you can use something like a toothpick or a cotton swab with the cotton tip removed. Check out YouTube for videos on this. If your charging cord just fell apart and nothing is broken inside your nabi, just buy a universal charging cord. Make sure the tip matches the one you broke. Amazon is a good place for finding these. It will still charge your device.

Left drivers door will not open from inside it does open from outside how to repair


you will need to remove inner door panel, either the handle itself broke where the rod connects,or the rod fell off or broke at the door latch, or the door latch lever bent or corrodded, the outer and inner handles use the same door latch but not the same mechanisms or rods to operate the latch. Once you remove the door panel and the inner dust shield with the window up look in the bottom of door for clips or a rod or broken parts. and note latch and handle for boken or bent and missing pieces. once you start looking it all becomes self explanatory.

I havve a nikon S51 the battery latch is broken


they can repair/replace according to the damage and how it broke off. if the door broke into pieces it will be replaced. Replacing is done 99% of the times since it offers the pressure the battery needs to continue to charge well.

The latch that opens the Trunk (Hatchback - as it is a minivan) is broken. I cannot open the back...


If you still have the broken piece, you can try to use that to try to open the back. Otherwise, you have to open it from the inside.
I changes mine in 2007 so if memory serves me, I had to remove the back panel and pull on the cable to open the door.

Now to see and pull on the cable, and replace the latch, you have to take off the inside liner/panel to get to the latch to replace it. This took about 2 careful hours to replace.

The trick is to get the two side pieces off.
These two plastic pieces are next to the window on the left and right sides. Each piece is about 3 inches wide and 18 inches long. Using a strong grip, or a pry bar or large screwdriver, take off both pieces. There are three clip areas that holds each piece in.

If you are using a tool, be careful to protect the area by wrapping a towel on the screwdriver/tool.

After that the bottom liner piece pulls away and you can see the latch.
There are two screws/bolts that holds the latch.

The two pieces snaps back in pretty easily.

You probably broke the plastic piece shaped like a J.
You can try to glue the pieces back, but note that the piece broke due to age. I changed the whole assembly - good for another 7 yrs. I could not find just the plastic piece.

A key broke off in ignition


TRY SOME SUPERGLUE ON THE REST OF THE KEY AND CAREFULLY PLACE IT ON THE BROKEN SEGMENT, INSIDE THE CYLINDER. IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THIS IDEA, THEN TRY TO USE A PIECE OF STRONG TAPE TO EXTRACT THE BROKEN PIECE. IF YOU DO USE THE SUPERGLUE METHOD, THEN OIL THE OUTSIDE OF THE CYLINDER SO THE GLUE WON'T STICK TO IT. PUT A VERY VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF GLUE ON THE KEY AND INSERT IT SO IT ONLY TOUCHES THE KEY. HOPE THIS METHOD WORKS WELL FOR YOU. KEEP ME POSTED. THANK YOU FOR USING FIX-YA. AND THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AS WELL. GOOD LUCK.

Broken locking ring on Quantaray 28-90mm. 1:3.5-5.6


Hey Quiltzlady,
If you were an authorized service technician you could probably order this part from the manufacturer, and if this camera is really only $90 to purchase new it is very likely the cost of the repair would not be worth doing. The suggestion to super glue the ring back together might work but I would try epoxy being that it is a lot stronger, but remember you run the risk of rendering the lens inoperable when you involve glue with something that relies on moving parts to operate properly. Another suggestion is to find the same lens, but broken, for sale that this ring is not broken on, and use that lens as a parts lens I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

DSC-F828 Battery Latch


I suspect if you write a cordial note to Sony they just might fix it even though it is a few days out of warranty. I personally have had extremely good service from Sony (Sony Germany that is).
