Door will not lock light stays on


Usually this is caused by the door being bent, the hinges being bent, or a worn out door strike/catch not holding the door tightly closed. Lol, got kids?? Mommy's little helpers love to lean on the doors(the ones that open/close vertically). Also, slamming the dryer door can break the little plastic arm attached to the door switch--I see MANY switches with the arms broken in-half or the strikes/catches damaged from slamming. Usually a relatively simple repair to replace the strike/catch.

Camera does not stay on


Check battery charge is full.
Clean battery contacts with alcohol and an ear bud or electrical cleaner.
Make sure the door holding the battery in is securely closed.
If battery is not holding a charge, it could be time to buy a new one.

The door that holds the batteries in will not stay shut i believe maybe where you slide it shut a piece of that might be broken is there anyway to fix that or do i just need to hold it closed and hope for...


Pull the batteries out and see if it will stay closed, if it does the batteries are installed incorrectly. If it still won't stay closed your options are to either tape it shut or get a new camera unless it is under manufacture warrenty still or you have an accidental damage plan.

The battery door catch has broken


On most cameras you can hold the catch closed with an elastic band around the body of the camera, if necessary with a small square of cardboard over the hatch itself, or several bands, if the hatch actually holds the batteries in place. At least you will be able to use the camera, even if it does look a bit untidy!

You could use a piece of velcro as a strap but I would start looking at ebay or other places for the parts to fix it. Sooner or later someone will sell it.

I dropped my Fujifilm s1000fd and the battery door wouldn't stay closed, so I had to tape it down for it to work, now it won't turn on at all, how can I fix it?


It is possible that because you had trouble with the battery door not staying closed the intermittent power from the batteries has blown the fuse inside. Thats just a guess tho but my S1000fd also has a damaged door catch and I drilled a hole through the battery door and glued a nut where the catch used to be on the top of the battery compartment and fastened the door with a screw. Job done.
To fix your power problem would involve finding the fuse, or what ever has failed. Search online for a repair manual - shouldn't cost too much
