Fitting replacement film door release catch

The film door release catch on my Canon 300V broke recently and Canon have sent me a replacement but no instructions on how to fit it, although apparently it's 'easy when you know how'! I've removed the six screws in the film door, but the inside is still attached to the outside. I think the LCD display is holding it in place, but I'm not sure. How do i get to the release catch in order to replace it?

    I've got the same problem. I contacted Canon but they wouldn't tell me anything because of liability reasons.

I suggest you bring the camera to the Canon service rep in your area and for a few dollars you let them do it. This way, if there is any damage they are responsible.

I don't know the answer for your particular model, but in many of these cameras it is possible to easily do colaterol damage when changing parts.

How can I get repair parts for my eos elan 7 Canon film door?

Remove front cover to get to latch. Be careful not to touch the flash circuit as it can have a nasty 300 volt shock.

Canon parts phone number: 732-521-7230. They used to take credit cards, not sure if they still do. They are really good about ordering by description.

Canon elph 2 film door wont open , tried to open with door release button but wont budge.

You need the camera powered up and all the film used to activate the release mechanism for the lock to release the film door, the Elph film door will not open until all the pictures have been taken. It uses A CR2 Lithium battery

How to replace the door latch on a canon rebel eos ti

The cameras film door has a very small phillips head screw inside the battery doors hinge. Its a pain to take out & replace if you hands are shakey for this screw is so small. Also installing the replacement hinge would be a little harder to install tha removing the broken one.
I hope this information will help you. A camera shop should be able to do it for free if you maybe purchase some items there. Most shops which are very small and privately owned shops will do this for you

Photos are dark halfway across as if something was blocking lens.

Take the lens off and charge the shutter. with the film door open hold the camera toward a light. Fire the shutter and if you see half light in the film window the shutter magnets need replaced. Or the shutter is not being charged enough. If so,camera must be disassembled by a repair shop.
