Fuji Finepix S9500: 'battery door' is broken (clasp only)

The clasp of my 'battery door' is broken which means it powers off suddenly if the rubber bands i've used to hold it closed move.

Where can i purchase a replacement door?

Thank you.

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: I have a Fuji FinePix S5000 and the battery door

I had this problem also (see below).
0241d48.png

After getting poor results with the duct tape solution, I discovered another work-around. This should work whether it is chipped lugs on the door or on the body.

Firstly I used an old camera flash bracket that screws into the tripod socket, and this holds the battery door in place quite securely. However it was too long, so I cut and filed a piece of aluminium 25mm (1") wide by 2.5mm thick to the right length (around 100mm/4") and shape, and made a hole for the bracket screw.

End result is not exactly like new, but more functional than the duct tape and does not further damage the actual camera:

SOURCE: I have Fujifilm Finepix S1000. The battery door does not close

Is it the battery door or the plastic latches on the battery compartment?
There should be 4 catches on the battery compartment, 1 at each end and 2 in the middle.
If it is the catches then you will have to replace the front casing altogether.
Cheapest option for that is a faulty donor camera off ebay

Battery doors are almost impossible to find online. I'd contact Fuji by telephone to see if they retail themselves, if not, i'd try and use the broken battery door to somehow replace the elastic band.

Is there a repair for command dial on a fuji s9500


Yes. contact Fuji and it cost about £14.00, its a doddle to fit.
When you recieve it you'll work out how to remove the broken part because you'll understand how it locates, basically a small Pozi screwdriver and a sharp knife to lever the top off.

Our camera (S9500) has mysteriously stopped allowing us to use any of the manual functions in manual mode. The light meter is only working on auto exposure setting.
