Question about Cameras
SOURCE: Battery door broken
You're making it harder than it has to be. Simply hold the camera in your left hand, and open the battery door so it is standing up. Look closely at the lower left corner of the batterry door. Notice the notch shape. The door plastic door is locked in place by the mating little "L" shape on the hinged door of your camera. Thats all that keeps it from sliding off when you put in batteries. Simply insert a small screwdriver or knife blade in that slot, twist it counterclockwise to push the battery door lock to the left, and slide the door off with no force at all. It's a snap.

no idea where you 'normally' buy a door, but I happen to have one for sale, as the guy for whom I removed it decided it WAS too much trouble to follow my instructions.
it's actually pretty easy, requires only a good jeweler's phillips screwdriver and follow the instructions. I did spend a bit of time digging to figure out how to do it, and I was being extra careful as I didn't want to break anything. That done, I wrote the instrs to save you the trouble of figuring it out. lots of verbiage, actually pretty simple.

You've got to be kidding. My battery is useless after only about 5 years. I've already purchased the new battery for $35. Does anybody know how to replace it?

I had the same problem with my Sentry S3877. I found the exact 4-battery replacement (with snap attachment on top!) at an online electronics.retailer, but had to purchase a lot of three. I don't need the other two, so I'll sell them for just $6 each to the first two folks to contact me [email protected]
Oh, by the way, once the batteries went dead, you lost your combination! When you pop the new battery compartment in, the factory default combination will be in effect. That default combination is in your user's manual. I'm currently searching frantically for mine! Gee, how could I have misplaced it ... I just had it in my hands when I purchased the safe 10 years ago !!!
Anyone know the default combo for the S3877?

The same thing happened to me this week. I called Canon Canada directly and asked to order the part (The battery compartment door). They gave me a phone number to call and I was able to order the replacement door for about $8.00 + $10-$12 shipping. Hope this helps!
