Battery cover clips broken

I had the same problem with mine, sent mine to Fuji for repair.
Unfortunately they no longer have parts for this model, 8-(. I simply had to resort to using tape to keep the cover closed.

How to change key fob battery in 2010 mazda cx 9?

I just figured out how to change the battery in the Advanced (keyless) fob for my 2010 Mazda CX9. You just need to take out the physical key, and use a small flat-head screwdriver to pop off the back cover. Then there is a black battery cover with an o-ring that just pulls up to reveal the CR-2032 Battery. Here are some pictures to explain better:10_10_2012_2_13_28_pm.jpg

The battery chamber has broken off and been like that for at least 6 months. I have only owned the camera since June 2010. Will my warranty of one year still cover me? More importantly: Where do I send...

The warranty will cover the battery chamber, I would take it back to the store and let them deal with it, since they sold you the product in the first place and let them know you are not happy with the purchase and that you expect them to take care of the problem. I find you get more prompt service than if they try and say it is the manufactures problem, don't let them sway you. When you call the manager out, the last thing they want is bad publicity especially when you have prospective buyers going shopping, I think you will do far better this way under the circumstances.

My remote that came with the TV will no longer let me move channel up or down. All other features work, changing batteries dors not work. The TV was purchased In Feb, 2010.

Your remote is broken. You are covered under the factory warranty. Contact the manufacturer using the contact infomation within your user manual. Look in the section which details the warranty terms. The mfg will likely ship you a new remote straight to your home. Don't delay, usually it can take 7-10 days to arrive.

Battery cover broken

A repair is unlikely without parts, It also depends weather its the part that is actually broken is on the battery cover or the camera itself.
If the camera itself a new case for the camera will be required if the battery cover then a new cover will be needed.

to obtain the spares you have two routes,
a) contact the manufacturer (contact details should be in the manual or on the gtee card)
b) buy a faulty camera from somewhere like ebay and use it for parts
