Battery door cover

One of the 2 tiny square pieces of plastic that hold the battery door cover shut broke off, I guess I need a new battery door cover but where can I purchase one and bring it to be fixed if I can't?

Hi,
As a first call I would try visiting the smaller specialist camera shops that do repairs.
The manufacturers are starting to hide behind blanket 1 year warranties that only cover manufacturing defects. Basically if it works when you first use it - they won't help on anything else as it comes under "improper use" or "physical damage"
They are producing them cheaper than they can repair them, so, if you do return a genuine claim within a year - they send you a new one, and bin the old one.
They also charge high prices for repairs.

My personal advice is to watch Ebay for an identical model sold for spares. Just do a search,save it and they will email any matches to you.
Then just swap defective parts.
This is the cheapest option.

Sharp r520kst door wont stay shut


If the door will not stay closed it is the spring inside door, or the small plastic piece that holds the spring which is attached to the $80.00 piece called outer door.
To fix it, it is EASY and you do not have to even take the inside cover all the way off. Just remove the three sides of cover by gently slipping a plastic putty knife around rim to release the clips. Then attach the spring to the small hole below where the plastic piece used to be, which is located in the metal on the glass frame piece, use tweezers, hold the other end of spring as you place spring onto plastic door latch and set into place!
Snap the inside cover back on and YAY! FINI!

Tip

Maytag MMV4205 door won't stay shut.


After tearing apart my microwave, I found a little spring broke off the latches. Open the door to the microwave, pop off the plastic piece that the latches on the door go through. You will see a spring behind the latch. If the spring is not connected to the latch it won't operate properly. The spring was held onto the latch with a tiny plastic piece that broke off. An easy solution instead of buying a new latch is to heat up one side of the spring without burning yourself and melt it through the latch piece where it was originally connected then put everything back together.
Hope this helps,

I have a Samsung SMH9187ST microwave, it is about 2 years old. The door won't stay closed. It is worthwhile to try to fix it or should I just replace it?


If you can lift the plastic door latch catches with no resistance, it is most likely the spring/plastic connector. I removed the door by lifting up, pulling the bottom forward, and lowering. I removed the inside black plastic bevel with a jewelers flat screw driver, prying from the latch side's external edge. Once it was started, I could pull it of with a gentle lift. I took out the black plastic latch, drilled a hole near the broken piece and all was good. Samsung is not on my radar for any future purchases. This is the 3rd major purchase that barely made it past warranty or not even thru warranty.

I can not get my tailgate to unlatch and open. what do i need to do to get it to open?


i had the same problem with my 2002 1500, the problem lies with a clip or both clips being broke under the tail gate latch that you pull on to open it. you can check this by getting a flash light and look up under the latch as you have it pulled up, you will then see if you have a broken clip. chevy dealer has these. to replace the clips you have to remove the square plastic piece around your latch handle, this square piece has 4 plastic tabs 2 on the upper piece of the square in the corners and the low portion of the square has 2 in the corners also, get 2 putty knives and slide one under the bottom half of the square plastic piece 3 quarters of an inch from the corner, then slide another putty knife under the very corner, note cover this knife with tape as it will scratch your paint if not careful. you will hit a plastic tab shove in carefully to disengage the tab, do this on the other side,then you can remove bottom half of plastic trim, then proceed to do the same step on the top of the plastic trim, once this is done then take it off carefully these plastic tabs are fragile! then proceed to look in the area to see which clip is to be replaced, use needle nose pliers to install new clip, just put clip on shaft that has dropped down, this would be the one that has the broke clip. then after installing new clip try your tailgate if it opens, if it does all is well. install your square plastic piece top first, then the bottom until it snaps into place.

Card Cover Open


I have the same problem. The card-cover has to be physically held down for the camera to work. I have even taken pictures and because I didn't hold the card-cover down hard enough the pictures disappeared.
I have noticed on my camera that tiny portion of the plastic card-cover is missing. It is the very tip of the card-cover and would normally be angled up to snap into place and hold the card-cover closed. Apparantly this tiny piece of plastic broke off and now the whole camera has to be carefully handled. Can anyone tell me where I can get another card-cover?

The square cursor button does not work on the uniden dect 2080


I fixed mine by using tiny pieces of tinfoil. Just take the back plate off (held by 2 screws under the battery cover). Then remove the circuit board (one screw on top). You'll find that the Square Button is in deed different, using 4 rubber contacts that apparently wear out. So, just cut some tiny pieces of tinfoli to cover each of the 4 black contacts. Glue them in place with a dab of silicone... Viola!!!
