Battery Cover Coolpix L11 Removal

I'm trying to remove the battery cover on this camera and I am able to seperate the two halves apart. Problem is, is that I cannot slide the pin out, even grabbing it with needle nose pliers. I don't want to force anything and break something. I've already nicked the case a bit, in trying to get the two halves apart. Altogether, there are 7 screws. I undid them all, as undoing just a few of them wasn't enough to separate the two halves part.

Any help would be appreciated. I'm already out the cost of the part. Would hate to have to take it in to have this done, when I'm *this* close to getting it done.

Thanks for your help!

SOURCE: Battery Cover for L11 Coolpix

Take the 7 screws out around the edges, place a flat tip screwdriver between the battery door and the case, pry the case apart just enough to get the pin out the side using a pair of needle nose pliers, remove the old door and put the new one in place and reinstall the pin, squeeze the case together and reinstall the screws.

My Nikon coolpix L11 battery door does not close properly, or, the battery compartment is faulty. The camera has no dc power. Help!


Try using a dc adapter and pressing on the battery cover if it is loose. If it is loose go to bocaphoto.com for replacement door.

EVERYTIME I CUT MY CAMERA ON IT CUTS RIGHT BACK OFF


Your camera continually shutting off (added with the fact that the battery cover is broken) probably means that your batteries are not making good contact with the hatch lid. You need to strap that battery cover down tight after your sure the batteries are installed correctly. Keep in mind, your going to have to strap that puppy back down every time you change batts. Let me know if this will help you.

Shutter malfunction


It sounds like a part of your electronic system shorted. It's unusual anything works at all.
THe front and back housing fit together like a **** shell. After you have removed all the screws gently pry a thin blade between the halves and start seperating them little by little. You have to be careful since quiete often there are buttons and/or contacts that may fall out when you do the separation. You may want to try and pry off the front cover first (fewer buttons).
There is no real loss trying it, any repair (by a shop) would likely cost more then replacing the camera.

Lens does not extend


If you drop one of the Coolpix cameras, the case can get jammed up against the lens. The lens may not extend at all, and you are probably getting SYSTEM ERROR messages. The motor that extends the lens isn't powerful. By loosening the screws that hold the case together, you may be able to move the case slightly and get everything back into alignment. This task is for the mechanically inclined and who can be gentle and patient. Brute strength is NOT called for here. Also, if your camera is under warranty, do not do this!

Removing the case screws will require a jewelers phillips head screwdriver and a well-lit workspace that will prevent losing the screws (they are tiny). Not all the screws are exactly the same. You have to keep track of where they came from so that they go back into the same hole. Get a clean sheet of paper and draw a map of the camera body showing where the screws go. There are 11 screws all together two of which are under the battery cover.

Shut off the camera and remove the battery. As you remove the screws, place them on the corresponding spot on the map. When all the screws are removed, the case may not want to come apart. GENTLY move the two halves of the case apart at the bottom of the camera (For some reason, the camera wants to come apart at the base before the top). It probably isn't necessary to take the body apart. If the body does come apart, note that the OFF/ON dial is connected to the circuit board by a thin ribbon cable, so the halves cannot be separated completely in any case. DO not pull on this cable.

What you are trying to do is loosen the two halves of the case and give them a chance to get back into the original position. Note that the tripod mount is a separate piece and will shift slightly if you separate the case halves at the bottom.

If the case halves are loose and they have moved, you've may have fixed the problem. Replace the screws. You may need a pair of needle nosed pliers to get the screws back into the holes. Put the battery in and turn on the camera. If you moved the body correctly, then the lens should pop out. Don't be afraid to try a couple of times.

I may have been lucky in that this worked for me, but if your camera isn't working at all (mine wasn't), this may be worth a try. Just be extremely careful of those screws.
