Question about Fuji Discovery 1000 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

1 Answer

My brother's Fuji Discovery 1000 35mm Camera met with a small accident. The latch on the cover is broken. I don't know how old the camera is, but would like to know if it can be fixed, and if so, what is an estimate of cost.

Parts are no longer available, and like almost all 35mm compact cameras (and many SLR's), your brother's camera is utterly worthless so repairs are totally uneconomic to repair unless you can fabricate a replacement latch yourselves.

Although this may sound gloomy, it's not. The silver lining is that you can easily find a similar or better model on your local FreeCycle or Freegle groups for zilch. There are millions of perfectly good 35mm film cameras lying unused at the back of peoples cupboards and drawers and the majority of owners know they're near worthless so haven't even invested in the replacement batteries that many need.

I came across an old Fuji Discovery 900 zoom plus 35mm camera and it has these 3 small pieces that came with it (and are stored in a pouch on the shoulder strap of the camera case) They have symbols...


They are to tell you what exposure to do it at, you match the weather with the symbols and that should tell you what exposure to do the camera at.

Camera door thats holds battery small grey latch is broken


Try partstore.com they might be able to solve your problem. Also look at the latch and determine if it is attached to the front of the camera case or the back of the camers casing I am assuming it is attached to the back then you might consider caling HP back and ordering the Back or Front cover Assembly. Small pieces like this usually don't come by themselves you have to order an assembly, so when when u call for parts ask for Back cover assembly or front cover assembly, which ever it is attached to or apart of. Asking for a perticular piece they will not usually know what you need. You have to talk to them in technical terms.. Hope this helps you out...

Little bit on battery cover broken. So won't close!!!


Those parts are not easily attainable. You will need to send it in for servicing. You could also buy a parts camera and try a DIY repair, but that may void the warranty.

Battery cover


Hi,
I had a look at my S5000 and see what you are talking about. Those tabs are part of the inner shell, likely expensive to replace if even cost effective. In the past, I have cut the broken tabs off, leaving a flush surface. I then drill small holes and insert large head screws that I file to match the door tabs. It does require some finite work but is possible without disassembly of the camera.

Faulty Latch Sensor


in the bottom corner of the latch there is a little piece of plastic on the hinge that pushes a switch that tells the camera the latch is shut if thats broken off thatll be the problem id shove a piece of a matcher in to see if it does the trick and if so its a new latch or leave the matcher :) 5
