Question about Olympus Camedia C-740 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera
RE: CANON A720 digital camera
The top portion of the plastic "catch" for the battery compartment door has broken free (probably from the constant pressure of the springs pushing the batteries against. Is this a material/design flaw? Will Canon fix the problem to correct what amounts to a defect. Camera has not been dropped or damaged.

The switch is a micro switch that is depressed(and not sad :)) by a plastic tag moulded on the battery cover. Once the cover is moved into position and closed, the tag presses on the micro switch closing the switch and thus removing the error message. As with any switch, a switch is simply open or closed, Open = high resistance or O/L, while closed = 0 ohms reistance. You can use a small wire to overcome the switch by soldering the wire to both tags of the switch so it is permenantly 0 ohms. This will send a message to the microprocessor that cover is closed and camera ready for use. Hope this helps.

If you have all of the pieces, you can use crazy glue to make the repair, otherwise take your camera to any camera shop where they will have access to whatever broken components need to be replaced. Regards, Joe
