Breaking Plastic Lugs

Battery Compartment, one of the tiny plastic lugs that hold on the cover has broken off, making the entire camera useless! Also one of the Plastic lugs holding in the Card readre cover is also showing signs of plastic stress! I am very careful with my Camera, so to me this is either a bad unit, or a designed in floor to facilitate upgrades Think I will box it up and send it to Kodak - what do you think

Do that
If it is under warranty it will be replaced
If it is not they will mention a price- which yoiu will not like and you will never but a Kodak again.

Or a reel of ducttape can come in useful.

I have a CANON camera A610 - since i changed the batteries it is not powering. The batteries are new. Please advise the possible problem


Double check that the new batteries are actually good. Note that so-called "heavy duty" batteries are terrible for use in digital cameras.
Next thing to check is the battery door slide switch. This is a tiny black micro-switch in the the battery compartment. It's activated by a tiny plastic piece on the battery door slide mechanism that may have broken off.

The plastic cover on my Coolpix 5200 has broken


Is that the battery compartment, use rubber bands to hold them together!? If this is the problem, I am thinking of a solution that works yet! If you have problems with that back contact put aluminium foil on the contacts.

How do I replace the battery and where is it located?


Procedure:

Remove battery cover located under the hood on the passenger side in the back. Simply pry the plastic catch in the front, open it like a lid and jiggle it loose and set it aside.
Use the small flat screwdriver to pop up the center peg in the five peripheral fasteners holding down the plastic compartment cover that you just removed the battery cover from. Each of these has a small black plastic circular flat topped center peg inside a larger plastic circular disk which has 4 slots under which you can slide the screwdriver to pop up the center peg. When the peg pops up simply slide the screwdriver under the larger disk to remove the assembly and loosen that site of fixation. When all five fasteners are out you can remove the entire compartment cover.
The battery terminals are removed with the 10mm wrench
The black box in front of the battery can be lifted out of the way by pressing on the plastic catch in the front of the box to loosen it from the metal flange that it is attached to.
The metal battery holder is removed with the 10 mm wrench. The nut is removed and the long bolt is slid out of the holder and then unhooked from it's bottom anchor. Jiggle the metal bar over the top of the battery to unhook the back hook from its bottom anchor. It may be necessary to lift the plastic over the back of the battery gently and lift out the soft clear plastic washer fluid tube from its guides to get at the back hook.
Gently lift the battery out while holding the cables out of the way.

I have a Fuji FinePix S5000 and the battery door catches (on the body of the camera) have broken off. Replace complete body assy??? I am sure mine is not the only one. any help appreciated.


I had this problem also (see below).
0241d48.png

After getting poor results with the duct tape solution, I discovered another work-around. This should work whether it is chipped lugs on the door or on the body.

Firstly I used an old camera flash bracket that screws into the tripod socket, and this holds the battery door in place quite securely. However it was too long, so I cut and filed a piece of aluminium 25mm (1") wide by 2.5mm thick to the right length (around 100mm/4") and shape, and made a hole for the bracket screw.

End result is not exactly like new, but more functional than the duct tape and does not further damage the actual camera:

Broken battery compartment door switch


The switch is a micro switch that is depressed(and not sad :)) by a plastic tag moulded on the battery cover. Once the cover is moved into position and closed, the tag presses on the micro switch closing the switch and thus removing the error message. As with any switch, a switch is simply open or closed, Open = high resistance or O/L, while closed = 0 ohms reistance. You can use a small wire to overcome the switch by soldering the wire to both tags of the switch so it is permenantly 0 ohms. This will send a message to the microprocessor that cover is closed and camera ready for use. Hope this helps.

Card-cover open


Look for the switch on the memory card door of your camera. Usually a small piece of plastic on the door closes the switch when the door is closed. Check to make sure that the plastic piece is not worn down and is making contact with the switch. You can confirm that this is the problem by powering on the camera while closing the switch manually with a toothpick. Make sure you keep your fingers clear of the extending lens while doing this. If the plastic is worn down or broken off, try attaching a small piece of scrap plastic with super glue.

Optio 555 Battery Compartment cover problem


My Optio 450 has the same type of cover and I am surprised how tough the cover is. I thought it would have broken by now. I suggest a call to Pentax would answer your question about getting it fixed. Alternatively, just leave it. The Plastic hinge should keep it closed
