Battery compartment cover

My battery compartment cover is chipped and won't clip shut. The hinge is perfectly intact, it's just the plastic cover (which slides off the hinge) that I need to replace. Fuji won't send one out "for health and safety reasons" and they want £99.00 to do a "repair". Does anybody know where I can get a cover?

Re: Battery compartment cover

The plastic cover is attached to a metal hinge, but the plastic bit that stops it coming adrift is worn, you can bend the metal part that slides into the cap so as to enable plastic cap to hold on

Re: Battery compartment cover

They really want you to buy a new camera instead!
TAPE it shut!
Otherwise you can sometimes find equipment sold 'as-is' for parts on eBay or other internet sites.
Do a web-search for it.

How do i remove the battery cover from my kodak easy share dv7590

from this manual:

is the following statement:
On the bottom panel of the DX7590 are the metal tripod mount (kudos for the use of metal here), dock jack, and battery compartment. The threaded tripod mount is a little off-center and too close to the battery compartment for quick battery changes while working with a tripod. The battery compartment features a locking, hinged door, which slides to the side to open under spring pressure.

I can't keep the battery door cover closed on my Nikon coolpix digital camera L.22

I see this message at least 3 times, so it must be important.
Looks like a mechanical problem. But not having the camera in my own hands I have to do some educated guesses.
Could be something broke off. Could be a small chip of plastic or a very small piece of metal. Difficult to repair it yourself. But you also could look if there is something in the battery compartment that should not be there. Could be just a little bit of debris, that is lifting the battery, (not if the battery is behind the lock) or debris in the door, so you can't close the battery compartment complete, and it can't be locked.
If you can't find anything and it looks as if the battery compartment closes correct, and still you only can't lock the door, please visit your dealer or the Nikon service centre closest to you.

How to change battery

Hi, try:

To install the battery:

Note: To open the battery door, you will need a paper clip or thin pen.

1. Take the paper clip and use the end to press down on the door latch.

2. Holding the latch down, push the battery door up.

3. The door will slide up and spring open, allowing you to access the batteries.

4. Place the battery into the compartment. Be sure to match the (-) on the

battery with the (-) inside the compartment.

Canon G3 camera just stopped working completely

Do you have a way to test the battery and you know it's ok?

Those batteries have built-in protection circuitry that can cut out or turn off the battery entirely if it detected a problem like a short circuit, etc. And it may not get over it.

Try a 2nd battery or the AC power adapter directly.

Also check that the 3 little pins in the camera DC input jack are intact, straight, and not touching each other.

Some camera's won't turn on if the memory card door is open or the card is ejected but I tested that on my G3 and it still turns on either way.

Ah.... and lastly... there is a little electrical limit switch connected to the battery cover door that disables the camera if the battery door is open. It gets pressed by a small plastic piece attached to the battery cover when you close the battery door. If the plastic piece or the tiny, recessed switch has an issue then the camera won't turn on The switch could be bypassed internally (not easy to do) if that was the problem.

Look for a tiny, thin, black plastic switch about as thin as a staple down in a recessed hole (slot) near the battery cover hinge. Try gentle pushing the battery closed switch "over" a little. You can tell which way to push by observing how the battery door slides into position as you close it. I was able to turn on my camera with the door open by doing this.
The switch is very tiny, don't break it.

If the battery door isn't closing all the way that would also cause the same issue.

The orange plastic clip that holds in the battery broke.

use some tape, or put a piece of something on top of the battery, when you close the battery door and latch it, it should hold the battery in place. That orange clip just holds the battery low enough that it comes in contact with the terminals at the bottom of the compartment.
Hope this helps

How to replace cr2016 from 450d/XSi or 500D/Xt1

The other bloke doesn't know what he is talking about..this is plainly obvious.

Looks like the CR2016 is inside the battery compartment under a small cut-out plastic piece (on same side as hinge). Use a torch and you can see it under this plastic piece.

You either need to dissemble it to get access or break off this plastic cover to replace...or take it to canon.

The little clip on the battery cover on my Nikon Coolpix 4300 has broken. I see I can buy a new one online, is it worth it?

Mine has broken as well. It appears this clip is just to keep the battery from falling out as you open the battery door. It will function perfectly fine without the clip. Just be careful not to drop the battery when you open the battery compartment.

Hope this helps,

Replace Battery Cover

to get to the battery door you must remove the back, to remove the back you must remove the top of the grip (shutter button and dial and WT lever). remove top of grip... 1) starting at the bottom of the plastic strip (along the front edge of the grip) that holds the shutter button, slide upward, the strip will bow outward and after about 3/16", the bottom's free. the only other thing holding it in place is a bit of double-stick tape and a similar clip at the top. CAREFUL! there's a spring under the button that's easy to lose. 2) Inside the battery case, front battery, all the way at the top, there's a tiny phillips screw, pull it. 3) peel away the right side rubber grip right by where your thumb meets the W on the W/T lever. 1st hole you'll see is a springy clip, keep going around to the right til you find a screw. pull that. 4) back to the springy clip hole, pushing inward on the finger, the top will come off straight up. leave it hanging, you just need it out of the way so the back can come loose. remove the back... 5) bottom of camera, remove 2 screws nearest the CE label and one outboard of the rearmost battery. 6) viewfinder cap: 4 screws, skinny on top, fatter on the bottom. the cap pops off. 7) lcd cover/frame: pull away from viewfinder(top) edge about 1/4 inch. the bottom's held by fingers; they need to slide to the left 1/8", then that's off. 8) remove screw @ lowerleft of lcd. now the whole back will slide rearward. 1st thing loose is memory door, remove it. slide the back off, out of the way. you'll now see that the battery door is held on by two hinge pins, not one continuous. the rearmost pin will slide left into the memory cover area, and the door will flex enough to remove it toward the front. trickiest part of reassembly is the spring under the shutter button. balance the spring on the camera, put the button into place. hold it in place with the screwdriver through eye of plastic strip, leaves plenty of room to seat the strip. lose a screw? I did, and the least-needed one is the one pulled at #3.

Optio 555 Battery Compartment cover problem

My Optio 450 has the same type of cover and I am surprised how tough the cover is. I thought it would have broken by now. I suggest a call to Pentax would answer your question about getting it fixed. Alternatively, just leave it. The Plastic hinge should keep it closed
