SOURCE: battery cover

Hi,
I had a look at my S5000 and see what you are talking about. Those tabs are part of the inner shell, likely expensive to replace if even cost effective. In the past, I have cut the broken tabs off, leaving a flush surface. I then drill small holes and insert large head screws that I file to match the door tabs. It does require some finite work but is possible without disassembly of the camera.

SOURCE: Replace Battery Cover

Okay,

Separating the front and rear covers of the camera is not that difficult. You'll need a good small cross point screwdriver. I do not have a 2600 in front of me, but the 2650 is similar. Remove all the screws around the sides of the camera. The top sections are snapped together. work along the back edge to undo the snap tabs. I do not remember if there is a ribbon cable attached so go easy when you remove the back half.

My chat is not working yet, so if you want to go this far, let me know

SOURCE: Fuji S3100 Broken Battery Latch

There are two potential solutions that I know of, but only if the broken tabs are on the door and not the camera body. Double check which tabs are damaged.

The first involves getting a new door somewhere (good luck with that... Fuji doesn't seem to sell the parts to civilian consumers... you might try getting the part from an old non-functional one on ebay or something). The trick to removing the battery door is to push the door's hinge pin (with the door open) towards the back (LCD side) of the camera from the opposite (front) side. There is very little clearance. I have successfully used a paint can opener to do this on a S3100. You can brace the back side of the opener against the lip of the camera body and push the pin out. Once it is as far out as possible, use needle nose plier or tweezers to grip the now exposed end of the pin and pull it all the way out. Then put the new door in place and re-insert the pin... there may be a little resistance.

The other was recommended to me by a camera repair man, but I have not tried. I would probably have let him do the work, as it seems a little risky, but possible. It basically involves getting a small washer that will fit under the two latching tabs near one another on the body. After figuring out the correct position for the washer to be attached to the door that it will just slide under the tabs and secure the door, you must use a small countersunk screw through the central hole in the washer to attach it to the door. You might have to remove the rim of the door in that area with an exacto knife or something similar so the washer will fit well. Like I said, I would have probably let him do the work, but it sounds like it would work.

Another idea that just occurred to me is a little more work intensive but would probably work would be to sink a (coarse thread) screw through the door all the way into the plastic of the body (maybe 2 or 3 in different places), which could simply be unscrewed any time you wanted to change the batteries with relatively little trouble.

Good luck! =)

SOURCE: How do I replace the battery cover

There is a little spring latch on the larger of the 2 metal components, (the one mounted to the body) on the cover. Raise this gently and the cover just slips off. A replacement can be bought from Camerashop.in for about $10. Fuji wanted £97 to do this!

Piece of lid broke off


Sand the area on bottom of piece along with areas surrounding the broken piece. Get another small piece of plastic that is large enough to cover the broken piece and adjacent areas and apply the glue to that using a good epoxy for adhesion. Let it set up and it will hold - trust me.

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.

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

Fuji S3500 Finepix just stopped working


If you have had it less than a year or even a little over- Fuji may come up with a modestly priced or even FREE replacement,if over and , before you send it to a repairer or contact the Fuji Tech Support team try one more thing. Take the batteries out and with the end of pencil, eraser - give the contacts at bottom the battery chamber a polish. Now take a look at the lid of the chamber if it has a continuous piece of metal inside so as to cover the battery ends put a piece of foil across them if two batteries ,or arrange 2 pieces of foil to replicate the correct alignment if 4 batteries Then close the lid . See what happens - it may simply be a battery contact thing.

Fuji 4700 zoom


there is some chance that it's not getting power for the shutter release. Either becuase of some internal error on the switch, the circuit isn't closed, or that the batteries aren't performing. Unless you're tired of this camera, you could try with new, maybe borrowed, NiMH bats. Good luck
