Fujifilm s5000 battery door broken

i broke mine a couple of years ago and fixed it by drilling and tapping two holes to suit 6-32 x 11/4" bolts as shown in the attached photo... one of the holes had to be enlarged to suit 6mm x20 because the thread is in a very flimsy area and had stripped
BTW the battery cover doesnt have to be removed from the camera as is shown in the photo! the photo was taken after i disassembled the camera for another repair

it works well with a couple of provisos...
1- the bolt heads may get in the way of mounting the camera on some tripods without modification
2-not as quick to change the batteries
3- dont screw the bolts down too tight - or the threads will strip

before this method i made a metal plate, the same shape as the base of the camera and used the camera tripod socket to attach it... thus keeping the battery door closed [ the advantage of this was that i could drill and tap a thread to attach the lot to a tripod - and the tripod mounting hole could be ia the centreline of the lens - making panoramas easier]11_28_2011_10_48_37_am.jpg

The threads cannot be replaced by the end user. Because the cameras are mounted at all sort of angles and can have very heavy loads placed on the tripod mount, they are usually built in under the body shell, or actually into the body shell. In order to repair this, send it to the manufacturer and they will provide you with a quote. An alternative option would be to take it to a local camera store, however it may be difficult to find one that can repair a Sony DSLR.

Having trouble mounting my Nikon D3000 to Zeikos 72" tripod. There is not manual included and I'm not sure how to get it to stay on the quick release plate, other than manually rotating the camera...

Quick release plates on all tripods are in two pieces. One stays on the tripod and provides a locking mechanism to secure the camera and the other stays connected to the tripod socket on the camera.

I have Fujifilm Finepix S1000. The battery door does not close. Is there a place on-line I can purchase a battery door? Thank you.

I know this is an old question, but when I had this problem I came across several forums that had the "tape it" or "drill a hole and screw it shut" solutions. Some even gave step by step instructions on taking the camera apart and replacing the battery compartment with one from a camera bought for parts. I even contacted Fujifilm for an estimate. All were either expensive, ineffective or damaging. The solution I came up with was to go to the Camera Exchange and buy a Quick Release plate used for tripods. One that was long enough to cover the battery door. It screws into the tripod mount on the back and holds the door closed. No damage, no hole drilling and it works. Also only cost me $8. Win!

Fuji s5100 batter door cover prongs are broken off.

I have the simple and cheap fix to a frustrating problem!
Just take a tripod base and screw it into the bottom of the
camera. The square tripod base is large enough to hold the battery
cover on the camera closed without any interference.
So there you go! No tape, rubber bands or other crazy contraptions!
Cheap, Quick and simple.

Viviteck 3x optical zoom, battery door does not close

I got an estimate of $125 to fix the Coolpix 7900 door, and the camera probably isn't worth that much. So I looked more closely at the camera to create a jury rig fix. As I never use a tripod with the camera, I thought about using the threaded tripod mount. I found a very short 1/4 inch thread screw in my garage and cut a thin metal strip to about 2 1/4" x 1/2". I then drilled a 1/4" hole at one end of the strip, laid the strip across the door and tightened the screw through the 1/4" hole and into the tripod mount. The door is now secure. To remove the battery, I simply loosen the screw a little with a dime and pivot the metal strip out of the way. There are many variations that can be done similarly such as using a plastic strip and a plastic 1/4" bolt or even a shorter strip that just covers the door.

Battery cover for Olympus camedia C720

Go to homedepot and get a small (1.5" x 2" x 1.5") L-shaped THIN METAL BRACKET used for bracing shelves. One side of the L is longer -- slip this between the bottom of the camera and the tripod pad that holds the camera, with the shorter side of the L parallel to the side of the camera. Push the short side of the L tight against the camera body and tighten the tripod screw, securing the longer section of the metal brace under the battery hatch.

It's not quite a fixed hatch, but it works great for me. The key will be whether your tripod has a mounting pad big enough to secure the L-brace enough to keep the battery cover closed under pressure. I have a Mohawk tripod with a detachable mounting pad and it's perfect.
