Question about Fuji FinePix S3100 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Door is actually broken- doesn't click shut due to that part being chipped off. The camera is perfect other than that. Right now I have duct tape holding it shut! I'd like to buy a replacement door and install it myself.

I have the same problem with the Fuji S3100 and I am using the duct tape fix -- not the neatest solution, but it does work. I would also like to find a replacement door that I could install. Have not found anyplace to purchase one.

Take a piece of duct tape on the door. I know this will leave a residue after the tape wears off, but it is cheaper then buying a new camera.

Battery door won't stay closed on Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S90 Digital Camera


The battery door latch is most likely damaged/broken. Try using a piece of duct tape to keep it closed. I've done this on several cameras with battery door latch issues & the doors stayed shut just fine.

Aw, Based of you have said. May be your cassette housing is deformed or dented, if this happen switches fail to do their job due mechanical deformity. I am afraid may be some other mechanical parts is affected that needs special skill to repair. If you have background in repairing, yes you change cassette housing by yourself, just be careful not to damage flexible wires. Good Luck

One side of the door on my Fuji s300 where the card goes in has broken off. The other side is still intact. Right now I keep the door closed with a piece of duck tape. Can the door be replaced and where...


Didn't fix the problem. Part not available so duck tape will have to do until I'm forced into another camera. I like this camea but both Fuji's I purchesed had the same problem with a door. The other was the battery door where the tabs that kept the door closed chipped off so the door would not stay closed.
I will not purchse another Fuji.

Broken latch on camera back


An authorized Nikon dealer should be able to order the back for you. If there's no dealer in your area, Nikon's service center info is on their web site. There's currently one new back on eBay for US $98..95 from a Canadian seller with good feedback. My only other suggestion is the old joke about pros. How can you tell if a photographer is a real pro? His camera has gaff instead of duct tape.

I have a Fuji FinePix S5000 and the battery door catches (on the body of the camera) have broken off. Replace complete body assy??? I am sure mine is not the only one. any help appreciated.


I had this problem also (see below).

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:

Door of the Battery compartment broken


To buy a replacement battery door is easy - go to Ebay - buy the replacement or, for the same price (around $20), buy an old camera just for the sake of the door. The second part, replace the door is much more difficult but I found out how to do it. The door has a hinge (a 1 inch long pin) which needs to be slid out from the camera to take the old door out and then to insert the new door. However, this pin just comes out if you open up the camera. To open it up, you need to remove 6 screws with Philips precision screw driver 1.6 mm ($7 at Radioshack) - there are 2 screws on 3 sides of the camera. After removing these screws carefully separate the two parts of the camera - you just need a gap of (maybe ) 1/16, just enough for the pin to slide out, which can be done forcing it out with a sharp knife. After the pin is removed, remove the old door, put the new door in place, put the pin back and use some pressure to join the two parts of the camera together. They join back with a click, put the 6 screws back and it is done.
