Card reader door will not stay closed

The plastic door that opens and closes to provide acccess to the memory card will not stay shut. It appears that the two (2) small plastic 'ears' that act as a latch have broken off of the card reader door. Can I purchase a new card reader door and install it myself? Thank you, Michael

    I was trying to avoid taking this back to the dealer because I know I'll be charged out the Ying-Yang for a part that costs next to nothing. It is amazing what a bad design this cover is on an otherwise fine camera.



    Thanks for your help.

    I do not know if you still want this info, but . . .

    The door itself you can buy from http://www.uscamera.com for about $10 (+ $4 S/H).

    Replacing the old one was a little tricky; what I did was remove the three screws inside the door, and the 11 other screws on the bottom of the camera (NOTE: some of the screws are different, so, be sure to remember where each one goes). Then I carefully pried the front half of the camera housing from the back half just behind the card door bottom edge. You only need to separate both half of the housing about a millimeter to be able to release one end of the hinge pin and slide the door off (twisting the old door a little bit helped.
    Then, just reverse the procedure to install the new door.
    Maybe you do not need to take off all the 11 screws in the bottom, but, I screwed them off anyway.

Download photos computer


Download photos from any camera is highly unrecommended because that quickly disharges the camera battery. Instead, turn camera off and then open battery door. See picture memory card at camera edge, push in and release to pop up. Then, draw card out of the slot taking care to avoid finger contact with contacts. Close battery door. No insert card into card reader on computer. (Most computers these days have built in reader. USB interface readers can be purchase at low cost.)
If the upload start up dialog does not auto star, then open Computer and double cick open it there. A menu will appear offering wholesalee import you can chose Review Folders in Explorer. Once opened, photos can be handled and stored ot computer like any other file. It is preferable to copy files as opposed to moving them, using camera itself to delete files. Now close Fuji folder and initiate safe removal. When approved, remove memory card and reinsert in camera. Question answered.

When you shut the ref. doors the right one stays open. there is nothing in the way. you have to go back and shut it.


First I would look on the inside bottom of the refrigerator, where the door closes into and see if you can see any scrap or drag marks on the plastic. some doors will drop just enough to grab the plastic right befor the door closes.

your hinge could be bent causing this.

take a look at the top of the doors when their closed, and see if the right door is a little lower.

some of the doors can be adjusted at the top hinge moving the door to the right lifting it in the center.

Rear door won't stay shut


Check the latch mechanism on the door. There is a piece of the latch that closes around the clasp on the door frame. sometimes this closes when the door is open and you can't shut the door. Take a screw driver and flip this latch piece open and close the door.

Memory card shutter wont close


Try closing it with the card removed.
If it will will not close shut, this suggests a piece of plastic has broken off.
The quick fix is gaffer tape it shut.
Indeed it is likely the only fix unless the camera is still under warranty, whereupon it will be replaced

If door does not close at all, even if you push you need to replace the door pickoff.
If door stick a bit but does not stay closed you have to replace the door seal.

Here you find all diagrams for your appliance

See also here, there is seal and pickoff for the freezer, you can buy them from this site.

Battery/memory card compartment wont close


Don't force it. It could be that your memory card is in backwards. This is a common cause for your battery door to not shut.

Hope this helps!

Card-cover open


Look for the switch on the memory card door of your camera. Usually a small piece of plastic on the door closes the switch when the door is closed. Check to make sure that the plastic piece is not worn down and is making contact with the switch. You can confirm that this is the problem by powering on the camera while closing the switch manually with a toothpick. Make sure you keep your fingers clear of the extending lens while doing this. If the plastic is worn down or broken off, try attaching a small piece of scrap plastic with super glue.
