KODAY DC3400 BATTERY DOOR BROKE

Kodak no longer sells the DC3400 camera. The battery door broke on mine so I purchased a replacement door on ebay. Are you able to give me instructions on how to take the old one off and put the new one on so I don't have to mail it in to Kodak and pay the expensive repair cost?

    I have yet to purchase a replacement door as I'm not sure a new one can be installed without breaking a hinge-tab. The solution offered in this thread is how to change batteries, not how to replace a broken battery door. "Know it all" apparently doesn't know how to read 8^). If the original problem was solved, or anyone has a good idea of how to replace the cheap plastic hinge-tabbed door, would be terrific... thank you kindly. This camera has served me well for 7 years and still takes beautiful pics... why Kodak put on such a cheap door is a mystery... it's a broken part walking. My fix has been to use a couple heavy-duty rubber bands to put pressure on the battery door when closed, to keep it closed. It works but would be nice to have a battery door that locks into place again like it should.

Easy Fix-
I had the same problem. Place the camera upside down with the battery door to your right. There is a plastic plate with the eject switch to the left. It has three philips screws. Get a jewlers screwdriver (Any hobby store, Harbour Freight, etc.) Take out the three small screws. Don't lose them. Get a razor blade and pry up the plate in the line just to the right of the top right screw. Only pry up about an 1/8 of an inch and only that corner not the whole plate. Then you can slant the new battery door so that the top part goes to the left under the plate and then straigten it out so that the tabs seat in the grooves. Repace the screws. Voila.
Good Luck,
-Joe

The Battery Door does not slide all the way off! It only slides an eighth of an inch and then
swings open. Two little plastic screw on the door act as hinges preventing the door from
completely coming off the camera.
Trying to slide the new door into position would probably snap one or both screws off,
ruining the replacement door. They must be entered into the grooves in the camera body
CAREFULLY to prevent damage as they are fragile. Be careful. hdave1

The battery door slides off. Holding the camera upside down, press your thumb on the door and move it toward the side of the camera to which the carrying strap is attached. Note the correct positions (+ & - ends) of the batteries and insert the new ones in the same positions. To reinstall the cover, reverse the above process and slide the door on until it snaps closed.

I purchased a used kodak dc3400 camera without a memory card how do i get it to work or a new memory card

The DC3400 uses Compact Flash (CF) cards. You should be able to purchase them at just about any electronics or office-supply store.

You can download the manual from the manufacturer's web site at

The latch that holds the battery door shut broke off...where can i find that part

You could try and find it on EBay or other online forums however KODAK no longer produces the parts for this model so unfortunantly you might run into some trouble trying to find it.

Good luck

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.

Pentax IqZoom 700 film camera E9 error shutter failure Hi, I have a pentax iqzoom 700 that I'd like to repair myself but E9 appears on the lcd screen after inserting a new battery and powering on. Other posts mention this is a shutter failure. When turning on, the zoom lens extends and the outer shutter covering the outside of the lens opens. I've read tutorials that say you can sometimes fix a shutter error by causing a power outage during a shot and opening the battery door while taking a picture, but this isn't possible in my case because no shot is fired when the shutter is pressed, likely because the camera recognizes the shutter failure. I've also watched videos on how to repair leaf shutters and mechanical shutters, but the manual for this camera states the shutter is an AE between-the-lens shutter so I have no idea how to disassemble and fix this sort of thing. Looking thru the lens both thru the front of the camera and in the film compartment on the other side show a dark covering behind the lens even while the outer shutter is open covering the outer lens, which I'm assuming is the between-the-lens shutter. Ideally, I'd like to repair this myself, as there's nothing lost if I screw up and it's not worth it otherwise to take it for repair. I'm a complete novice with absolutely no prior knowledge of taking apart things, but I can follow directions so any suggestions or links to videos/tutorials would be very much appreciated Side note that I've searched the web extensively and have yet to find anything specific to repairing this camera model, and I'm not knowledgeable enough to adapt a tutorial for a different camera to this model Thanks in advance!
