Which compartments?

The lid on the battery compartment next to the tripod mount flips down.

To open the film compartment, turn the camera upside down, then turn the film chamber release clockwise.

Open battery compartment


Spray WD-40 around the compartment door and try to let it trickle inside the compartment. That should break the acid corrosion buildup that holds the door from opening.

Battery compartment won't open?


Push the cover toward the back of the camera and then toward the end, just as the arrow indicates, then the end of the cover nearest the end of the camera will swing open. Follow the illustration in the "Insert the Batteries" section of the manual (page 12 in my copy).

I just received this dv002 camera and can't get the battery compartment open. I'm afraid if I force it open, it will break.


You do not need to open up the battery compartment, as it is a built-in rechargeable battery. Use the cable included to recharge the camera.

My digicam won't start


There could be a couple of reasons why your camera would not start.

Before considering it to be defective, verify that the camera has batteries inside and that these batteries are charged. To do this:

  1. Locate and open the battery compartment.
  2. Identify the type of batteries needed and purchase new ones OR
  3. Recharge the batteries with the recharger provided.
  4. Place the new/charged batteries inside, closing the battery compartment.
  5. Try to turn on the camera.
If the camera still doesn't work after verifying that the batteries are in order, remove the memory card and any other accessories that the camera may have and try turning it on again.

If still the camera won't turn on, one last step can be performed if and only if your camera uses standard batteries (AA or AAA). If this step is performed incorrectly, you could short circuit the batteries, which would discharge them. This procedure will not damage the camera if performed correctly. Please pay attention and do exactly as explained:
  1. Locate and open the battery compartment.
  2. Remove the batteries.
  3. Place the batteries back inside in the opposite direction than the one indicated. If the position indicated is for the positive end first, place the battery with the negative end first. Do this process for all the batteries.
  4. Close the battery compartment.
  5. Attempt to turn on the camera. It will not turn on, but this step is necessary nonetheless.
  6. Open the battery compartment.
  7. Remove the batteries.
  8. Place the batteries in the correct position according to the indication.
  9. Close the battery compartment.
  10. Attempt to turn on the camera.
If the camera still does not work, it is likely that it is defective. At this point you should take the camera to an authorized service center.

Jammed compartment door


I am pleased to say that my good lady wife, of 49 years standing, 'fixed' the problem ~ not once, but twice. Pat has always managed to solve such problems, and this time she was fiddling inside the compartment near the camera 'on/off' switch and, Hey Presto!, the camera now works satisfactorily. I attribute her prowess in solving small mechanical problems to a woman's intuition. I just wish I could be more precise on her success.
