I'm not familiar with this camera, but it sounds as though the spring contacts are weak or bent so it is not making contact. Check to see that all contacts are clean, as well. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Olympus digital camera wont turn on

First: thank you, for suggesting battery terminals. It was failing to power on intermittently for some time; the problem became more-and-more frequent until it would not come on at all. Cleaning the terminals saved my camera! Second: for others, let me suggest plain old pencil erasers as a good way to clean electrical contacts (something I learned from HO model railroads as a kid). A vigorous rub with the brand new eraser on the end of a pencil cleaned the battery contacts inside the camera.

SOURCE: Sony Cyber-Shot Battery Compartment Door Broken

I'm having the same problem with my DSC-W1 camera. I dropped my camera and the battery door latches broke.
I found a replacement door on Ebay for $9.95
I followed the instructions in the description and easily removed the broken door from my camera. Now i'm just waiting on the new door to arrive so I could slide the new door in.
I hope this was helpful.

Here's the seller I bought the door from. Hopefully the seller has more doors. =) :

SOURCE: Fujifilm S1500 broken battery door

Yes, but you would most likely (don't quote me) have to send it back to the manufacture to get it fixed. That means $$$, is there a way for you to tape it on? You really only need the metal piece/plate touching the batteries.

SOURCE: I can't turn on the camera, even with a fully charged battery.

The battery contacts are like little springs, as the camera gets jostled these can stop making good contact. Open the battery case and try force holding the battery against the contacts (You may need to hold a piece of metal across the bottom of the battery as you push) Then see if the camera comes on.

If it does, you may have to stuff, pull, or rig the battery to fit more securely.

Kodak easyshare won't work unless plugged into charger


Hello Pam, You have either a faulty contact for the battery or your battery is suffering from age. After time these camera batteries lose their capacity. Try a new fully charged battery.

Door latch


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Open Lever If the microwave door won't open the open lever might be broken. This part can be replaced separately.

Door Spring If the microwave door won't open the door spring may have broken. The door spring is located inside the door and keeps downward pressure on the door hook.

Door Latch If the microwave door won't open the door latch might be broken. The door latch is inside the microwave. The door hook, which is part of the door, engages with the latch to keep the door closed during operation. If the door latch or actuator breaks the door may not open.

Door Hook If the microwave door won't open the door hook might not be releasing properly. The door hook is installed inside the door and normally releases when the door is opened. The hook is made of plastic and will break over time. When this happens it will need to be replaced, it can't be repaired.

Button Spring If the microwave door won't open the button spring might be broken internally. The button spring can be replaced.
Button If the microwave door won't open the button might be broken internally. The button can be replaced.

Handle Actuator If the microwave door won't open the handle actuator might be broken. This is a plastic part which can become brittle over time. This part is connected between the door button and the door latch assembly.

I have a Finepix xp50, with a fully charged, correctly installed battery, that won't turn on. It worked intermittantly for awhile. We have 3 batteries for this camera thinking it was the battery


Be sure your battery is in the right way. Try reversing it. My battery has 3 rounded corners and one square corner. The square corner goes against the latch.

I put in new batteries in but 5 mins later it says low battery and turns itself off.


I have the same problem. Canon support claims they have never had this problem before, but it is all over the Internet. I won't be buying another Canon for the support, although the camera is sweet.

I have tested everything I can see including the batteries and there's nothing wrong with the batteries.

However, when I eyeball the height of the batteries, I see that one is lower than the others. So I assume that this connection is not as solid as the rest and may be why low battery indicator shows even when the batteries are testing fully charged.

On the SX20 you can't bend down the terminals at the top, so you have to reach in to the bottom and bend the contacts on the short battery up. I believe that this is just a temporary solution because it doesn't fix my camera permanently.

But try it. It is a free fix and can't hurt.

IMHO

I put battery in for the first time I can't get it to eject


Open the battery compartment door, then gently slap the base of the camera against the palm of your other hand. That will shake the battery out a bit, then you can grab it with your fingertips and pull it out.
You don't want to do it hard enough to break the camera or hurt your hand. You just want the camera to stop moving abruptly enough so that the battery keeps moving just enough to shake it loose.

YJ wrangler door wont close


Start out by checking the latch mechanism on the door. Use a screwdriver to "trip" the latch with the door open, then pull on the screwdriver against the latch gate. If it doesn't hold then you may have a bad latch (the springs in the latch can go bad over time). You can also try spraying penetrating oil (PB Blaster) into the latch and again using a screwdriver to trip the latch, then open with the handle, and repeat several times to work the oil into the mechanism and free it up (this trick also sometimes works with the springs on wiper arms that have lost tension). If the penetrating oil trick works, think about spraying dry lube or white lithium grease into the latch to help prevent it from happening again. If the door is misaligned, consider new hinge bushings, a misaligned door can cause damage to the door, and put tension on the door latch in a direction that puts pressure on the latch that it wasn't designed for.

Door won't stay latched on dishwasher


Make sure nothing is binding the racks which could be pressing against the door when closed. Also make sure the dishwasher isn't installed too tightly in its place, which puts pressure on the latch. You may need to lower the leveling legs a bit.

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.

Switch in the door!


The latch needs replaced and/or the door has bent hinges. Light pressure is more indicative of the latch.

Camera battery clip


Well, I got the latch and spring back into my DX7630, and so far (half an hour after) so good.

To do this, I had a replacement latch from U.S. Camera ($10 total, latch plus shipping and handling) and the original spring on hand. I took all of the eight screws holding the camera body together. I also pulled off the "rubber" hand grip on the front of the camera. I'm not sure if that was necessary or not, but in doing it I broke off one of the "claws" that secure the grip.

Then I turned the camera so the battery door was on top, opened the door, and gently pried the camera body halves apart. I used "square" wooden toothpicks to hold the body apart so I could get at the latch area. (The battery was not in the camera during all this work.)

There are two small slots in the camera body where the latch is held and pivots. The latch pivots can be slipped into those slots if the toothpicks have the body wedged open widely enough.

The hard part of the assembly is getting that latch spring properly mounted. The spring fits over the rod of the latch. The spring wire has two ends: one is shorter. The shorter-end goes behind the latch on the memory card side. The longer-end makes the job difficult. It must be held so that the spring is under tension while the battery side latch pivot is slipped into its slot, then the memory card side latch pivot is slipped into its slot. The longer spring-end presses against the camera body.

The latch and spring only flew away into the darkness of this room once during the effort, and that happened because I tested the latch a few times before closing the camera body. The body halves should be closed before doing any latch testing.

I put all the screws back into the camera snapped the rubber hand grip back in, put in a battery and a memory card, and at this writing, all seems to be working as designed. Hooray!
