Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Nikon D40 where the battery cover latch has broken through on the bottom of the camera body. It's similar to a door jab busting where the latch fits into the door jab. It looks like the bottom of the body can be unscrewed and I'm trying to find the part online so I can repair.

You'll have to get that from Nikon, ( the bottom cover ). I doubt if you will find it else where.

Broken latch on film door


Usually on this level Nikon it was a plastic "hook", part of the door moulding, that was retained by the latch mechanism in the body. The broken part may still be in there - if it is trip the latch and recover it with a tiny screwdriver or even a needle. If you can't find a replacement back door you can try welding the hook back in place with a low-temperature soldering iron - with the tip perfectly clean and a very steady hand - as long as the door is thermoplastic and not thermosetting. If that doesn't work bend a paperclip or similar to exactly the right shape with the free ends (roughened) long enough to extend into the plastic of the door by 4-5mm., heat the wire and push slowly into the edge of the door. There are many variations of this technique that I've used, all require extremely careful work! Best tip: spend more time thinking than doing. Good luck.

Cannot remove the battery from by new nikon d300


Hi Dee and thanks for coming to FixYa.

Hold the camera like your going to take a picture. Now turn the camera over to look at the bottom. On the right hand side is a small latch. The latch secures the battery hatch door. Pop the latch and the battery door should open.
Turn the camera back over carefully and the batter should slide out.
Then plug the battery into the charger and you can charge it. Have fun with your new camera!

D40 will not power up


When a charged battery is installed, the card access led on the back of the camera should blink once. If it doesnt, try resetting the camera with the small microswitch on the bottom of the camera body (opposite side from battery compartment). Failing those, have a Nikon shop look at it.

Battery door and latch broken


Have used a 5-cent nylon cable tie for years on our CoolPix 990 and it never has failed, and still allows for battery changes. Looks a little funny to some, but is very functional. Don't know if your camera's design is similar enough for this to work, but it may worth trying.

Nikon Coolpix 2100/3100/3200 battery compartment door latch broken (again)


I just purchased a new battery door for $15 with shipping from nikon. They sent a simple assembly diagram and I was able to replace the door in 30 minutes. I used a dremel to cut the old door off, but you dont have to do that. I got a little impatient.

Just buy the plastic piece and u can reuse the metal parts for your old battery door.
