Question about Nikon SB-400 Flash

2 Answers

Dropped my SB400 and battery compartment door broke. Unit works with rubber band holding door in place, but want door replaced. Please advise cost, including return shipping. I have one estimate already and need 2 more. Already bought an SB600 replacement, but if price is good, I'd like to have the SB400 as a backup. Thanks.

I dropped my nikon coolpix l14 camera and the part that keeps the battery compartment closed chipped, so now the battery compartment will not shut by itself and needs to be held by a rubber band.


I did the same thing and decided to try and fix it myself. Here are the steps to follow after you acquire the new door, which is available online through Boca Photo for about $16 plus shipping.

On the bottom of the camera remove the three small screws and the one bottom screw on the side (left corner) of the camera. With these four screws removed you then gently pry the camera apart at the seam so it opens about 1/8". Then pull the battery door up and you'll see the steel pin the door pivots on. Pull the door and pin up and out and then slide the steel pin into the new door and reverse all the steps.

Polar fs2c battery replacement


Many people replace their own batteries but some of them have problems with replacing the backs and finding (for some unknown reason) the watch no longer works!


I advise you to take your watch to your nearest authorized dealer and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving in doing it yourself.

Sony CDP-CX300 How To Replace Drive Belts?


The Sony call center says the two belts are the same size. Supposedly, there is a third belt "under the motor board" but I have not been able to find it. That is the 42x1.2 (4219362601). The two easy ones to replace are 421606101 and only cost 1.95 from Sony.

Fujifilm S1500 broken battery door


Yes, but you would most likely (don't quote me) have to send it back to the manufacture to get it fixed. That means $$$, is there a way for you to tape it on? You really only need the metal piece/plate touching the batteries.

Kenmore elite washer metal band on gray seal


The retaining ring inserts into a groove in the rubber seam around the perimeter of the door where it attaches to the door frame. To reinstall, first make sure the door boot is fitting snugly around the door frame opening. Sometimes when the retaining spring comes loose, the rubber may pull away from the door frame. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Make sure the wire spring points towards the bottom. As you work your way around the door to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, you will need to maintain some constant downward pressure while pulling the spring apart in order to snap it back into place with your thumbs. It would be advisable to use a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place while doing this as it has the tendency to want to come out of the groove.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

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:

Your camera needs to be sent in for service. I would advise calling Canon for free tech support.
