The power is not functioning. cover for the battery is broken.


This is a pretty crude method for fixing it, but you can apply duct tape to the camera in whatever fashion necessary to hold the battery cover to the camera. You must have the contacts on the cover firmly pressed against the batteries or you may get errors such as low battery (if you just inserted a new pair)

Fujifilm S1500. Batter compart doesn't close


If you can't return the camera for service, my advice would be to close the battery compartment with tape. Not pretty but better than buying a new camera, I've done it a few times on old cameras and apart from cosmetics, works fine. Just make sure to use enough tape so the batteries won't fly out when using it.

Door to battery compartment won't close properly as a piece is broken on the clip


you'll have to order a new door from the manufacturer, use duct tape or velcro or something, or try to glue the missing piece or a similar piece back on.

I have a Fuji FinePix S5000 and the battery door catches (on the body of the camera) have broken off. Replace complete body assy??? I am sure mine is not the only one. any help appreciated.


I had this problem also (see below).

After getting poor results with the duct tape solution, I discovered another work-around. This should work whether it is chipped lugs on the door or on the body.

Firstly I used an old camera flash bracket that screws into the tripod socket, and this holds the battery door in place quite securely. However it was too long, so I cut and filed a piece of aluminium 25mm (1") wide by 2.5mm thick to the right length (around 100mm/4") and shape, and made a hole for the bracket screw.

End result is not exactly like new, but more functional than the duct tape and does not further damage the actual camera:
