Kodak EasyShare C643 Digital Camera - replaced broken battery door

You asked me to let you know . . . On May 15th, you posted that you have the same problem as mine posted by SelfFixer on May 06, 2008: My battery door is still on its hinge, but the plasic cover is broken in half ...

Next, I was able to find a camera like mine on Ebay that was being sold cheap for parts only, because the LCD was broken. I figure that this amounts to probably what I'd be paying if Kodak offered to sell me a replacement battery door (which they do not). Kodak only considers the wrist strap a "user-serviceable item." Maybe so, but I intend to try to fix this myself.

Then I posted today: SUCCESS! My "parts only" camera from EBay arrived, and I was able to remove it's batt door. And was able to take to broken door off my camera, and replace it. Now, it's really small work, so I hope you don't have big fingers. You have to be slow and patient. The only tools I needed were one of those tiny "watch" screwdrivers, and a pair of good tweezers. Remove all the visible phillips screws until the back of the camera case lets you know its ready to come off. Fit tolerances are almost microscopic, so it takes courage and care to see what you have to do to remove the front cover also (another screw or two). I practiced on the EBay LCD-broken camera first. Now, the batt door has a hinge pin that you can then pull out with tweezers, but first study the tiny door spring to make sure you know how it goes back. Withdraw the pin and capture the spring. Replace the door, and put everything back together in reverse. In the process I was careful not to touch anything in the camera that's electronic for fear of electrostatic discharge from my fingers that might "fry" something. Feel gratified for having beat the "not user serviceable" Kodak camera repair industry. Saved maybe $75, plus didn't have to buy a new camera.

My batterry door is broken I don't know how to put


KODAK doesn't sell battery doors for any of their models.

A repair for this fault is 24,47 pounds + shipping to the repair centre.
If you already have the battery door; I suggest you will have a local camera TECH to attach the door to the unit.

Battery Door Broken


So far, I was able to find a camera like mine on Ebay that was being sold cheap for parts only, because the LCD was broken. I figure that this amounts to probably what I'd be paying if Kodak offered to sell me a replacement battery door (which they do not). Kodak only considers the wrist strap a "user-serviceable item." Maybe so, but I intend to try to fix this myself. If anyone has done this successfully before, please write. Otherwise, will let you know how it goes.
