Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z3 Digital Camera
One of the two lugs that hold the battery cover closed has snapped off and the only way now to secure the cover flush to the casing is to use an elastic band around the cover and over the microphone. I can buy a new cover but am a bit timid about actually doing the replace job. Is this something I must take to a professional or does anyone have some instructions or tips on doing this job? Thanks
I ordered a new cover for around 4 euros and it was delivered promptly by mail. It took me some time to get it in place. You don't have to open the whole camera, but it is useful to remove the rubber grip (just by tearing). Underneath are some screws that make the job easier. I finally didn't break anything but I had to use some force. It functions normally again.

OK this is a design flaw. If you fix it or have it fixed with Minolta/Cannon supplied parts, it will break again. I use gaffers tape which has left a nasty residue onn the camera body but keeps me shooting. love the camera, despise the battery cover.
