This something you will have to contact a local camera shop for repair.They normally do not carry your exact part always due to the low % they may see but may order one for you.I would almost bet they will want at least $50(+or- $10) for repair.If they will not order the part for you,you will need to contact Epson at the link below.If it does require a screwdriver,normally the cameras have small screws and you need what is called a jeweler's set of screwdrivers.Not to worry though.They are very common,you may have seen them but not know it.They are the tiny screwdrivers,usually a set of 4 or 5 of them with a clear plastic top part to see them,usually at many major stores like K-Mart,Walmart,etc. although most of the employees do not seem to know their real name.Just go to the tools section and look.The person there,and maybe a few English speaking stock people may know the real name.Or I guess the old where are the teeny tiny screwdrivers at could work too I guess.They usually are there.If they are not there then they likely do not have them because they are not likely in the camera deparment even though that is the most common use other than jewelry.I have never seen them there and ocassionally ask just to see if they know when I see a different employee not asked yet or at a new store and when I ask for jeweler's screwdrivers where do they send me?Please do not buy the set where there is one screwdriver with changeable tips.Those are normally dollar store types.The 4 separate packaged ones should only be $3-$4,depends where you live,and are much better built.A friend bought the changeable tip one,ruined the main screwdriver part,which made all the tips useless anyway.I bought the multi-set years ago because i mess around with alot of my own electronics and even if you may not,they are very hady in the strangest situations.One example is I had to pry something open but it was so tight/narrow,what ended up working after about 20 mins. of everything else?Good luck!

When the batteries die I have to reset the date and time again in order to take pics! Was there something that I missed or did wrong?!


The manual states that when you change the batteries, you will have to reset the date and time; this is normal operation for this camera (though it is a pain!!!)

Epson 850Z and ibm microdrive


While my epson batteries were charging, I used a set of alkalines, and something similar to that happened to me (had to re-set time a bunch). When I pulled the batteries out, they were warm enough that the little built in test strip (a thermal lcd) was 'lit up'. It could be a battery load problem.

What is the battery life using the LCD with this camera?


Batterie life seems to be a couplre of hours of continuous use. I don't know how this compares. I can't seem to get regular AA batteries to make the camera work in LCD mode.

Tiffen 2X teleconvertor telephoto lens


I was testing the new Kenko 2x teleconverter I just got. Seems to work, but only at full zoom. But I left the epson supplied adapter ring on when I turned the camera off, and it interferred with the lens cover, and jammed it. It's a 4 leaf shutter assembly, and mine is screwed up so it won't open or close. Needless to say I'm kind of unhappy. I've heard Epson service is good, guess I'm about to find out. If you use the adapter, take it off when you turn the camera on or off!
