Viviteck 3x optical zoom, battery door does not close

Answers :

I got an estimate of $125 to fix the Coolpix 7900 door, and the camera probably isn't worth that much. So I looked more closely at the camera to create a jury rig fix. As I never use a tripod with the camera, I thought about using the threaded tripod mount. I found a very short 1/4 inch thread screw in my garage and cut a thin metal strip to about 2 1/4" x 1/2". I then drilled a 1/4" hole at one end of the strip, laid the strip across the door and tightened the screw through the 1/4" hole and into the tripod mount. The door is now secure. To remove the battery, I simply loosen the screw a little with a dime and pivot the metal strip out of the way. There are many variations that can be done similarly such as using a plastic strip and a plastic 1/4" bolt or even a shorter strip that just covers the door.

I have a SONY mini handycam model DCR-HC52 with 40x optical zoom. It has been working fine until a few days ago. When I insert a new tape the tape holder will not close. You can push the tape sideways into the carrier but the carrier will not descend into the camera. The lcd screen tells me to reconnect the power source. I have tried the camera with the charger cord plugged in and with a fully charged battery with the same results. The minimum repair cost from Sony is over $200 which is over hal

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)

Battery door Door won't close all the way. It won't slide closed far enough to latch. It doesn't matter whether batteries are in or if they're not in. This condition occurred without any prior signs of difficulty.

This happened to me just now too... Kodak wants $175 to repair it. If you look near the hinge, you'll notice a small (at least I did) metal clip-like structure that is blocking the door's ability to slide back. I believe this clip tells the camera th ... Kodak EasyShare C875 Digital Camera

Battery door A small part at the corner of the battery door is broken. The door doesn't close well. I think it's necessary to replace the door. It seems no so difficult to do.

I have verified my Canon A95 drains batteries by doing an amperage test. Starting with new batteries I install them in the camera and then layer a thin copper wire then piece of paper then copper wire and close the battery door. Touching the wires together closes the circuit and the camera functions. With the wires appart I measure the camera amps. The camera measures 0.6 amps when on and 0.14 amps when off. Doing the same test with my A80 Canon yeilds 0.45 amos when on and zero amps when off. T
