I have a Nikon Coolpix S610 (I think model #32507688). The little orange battery lock that keeps the battery in place broke and fell out. The outer door does not hold the battery in and the camera does not work or shuts down if we don't constantly hold the battery in place during use. Can I purchase this piece and replace it myself. Quotes on a repair of this is almost as much as a new camera. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I've replaced the battery door using the solution on this site, but still have a problem. The battery door does not slide all the way into the slot and will not stay shut when batteries are present. there is a 1/16th inch gap between the door and the camera body. The original door was sitting the same way and think that is what caused the clip on the door to break off. Any suggestions?

Olympus FE-140 I keep having to install new batteries. The batteries die after a short usage time and I always shut my camera off when not in use. The batteries are not 'dead' because I test them but a lot of their juice is used up (about 1/2). Is this normal for this type of camera. They also die if the camera is not used for lets say a couple of weeks. Thanks!

Fuji S5000 camera problem....The battery door will not latch because the cheap plastic retaining nipples inside the battery box have worn down/or broken. Tape will not even hold door closed! The retainers on the hinged door are fine (naturally it's the body!) The retainers don't meet each other as one slides the door closed and the spring loading makes the door pop open. Can a person use machine screws and latches or what??? (Velcro?...probably like tape that won't hold)

Where can I get hold of a replacement battery door for a Fuju Finepix S5700? I've trolled the web and can't find anyone with one for sale. The lugs on the battery door have snapped and won't hold the batteries in anymore. I've got tape on it at the moment which keeps stretching after a while. I don't really wan't to use a bodge job like tape or rubber bands - I'd really like to get hold of a spare part that I can fit myself. Any ideas?

I cannot figure out how to remove the battery from the Nikon S570; when I move the orange piece to the side, my finger keeps the battery pressed into place, and if I attempt to use a tool to move the piece, the battery still fits so snug that it does not come loose enough for me to grab. Does anybody have a suggestion?


Keeping your finger in place to hold the orange piece to the side, turn the camera over. You may have to GENTLY shake the camera, but gravity should pull the battery out. ... Nikon COOLPIX S570 Digital Camera

I have ordered a battery door for my CD43 as the plastic tip has broken and a new door with new tip will keep the door closed tightly. I see the rod in the back of the door with a black cover which I assume can be grasped with a needle nose pliers and pushed to the right to release the door hinge. Is that right?

Memory Door My Fuji S3000 has gone through two memory doors since I purchased it about two years ago--the original one that was on the camera, and the second one from a second camera that I had to purchase for parts. I download photos quite often, and use a reader to do so. The little piece on the door that snaps it shut is what breaks off, no matter how gentle I am with it. I merely need to purchase the door, as I have someone that can replace it for me. Does anyone know where I can find th
