Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
Canon A-75 directions to remove and replace battery door
I have a canon S1 IS camera with a broken battery door. I have ordered and received the new battery door, but am at a complete loss as to how to take out the old one and install the new one. If anyone has some pointers, or better yet step-by-step instructions with pictures (never hurts to ask!) I would greatly apprciate it.
Never did it on an S1, but on other models it required removing the back face of the camera to access the battery doory hinge pin.
Examine your camera, and if this sounds feasible, remove all screws along the perimeter of the camera (keeping track of their sizes and where they came from, write it down with a crude drawing of their locations/sizes). Also look for screws in the battery compartment, and any visible screws behind flaps/doors. Once all perimeter screws are removed, you should be able to remove the back face of the camera by prying it open from the bottom. Once opened, the pin holding the battery door should be able to be slid out, enabling removal of the old door. Then in reverse slide the pin into the new door, and reassemble the camera and its screws.
