Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I've acquired an older Minolta 8mm video camera: the tape door opened, but tape was caught inside. I wiggled the tape out, and now the door won't close. I suspect I bent the closing aperature(s) or ?? Where can I get this repaired? I live between Louisville, Ky (to my south) and Columbus, Indiana (to my north). Thanks much!

Answers :

These days, it is easier to sell a broken camera as-is auction style somewhere, then it is to repair it. You can usually get about 1/2 of your used camera worth back this way.

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 need detailed instructions for the removal of the Memory Card door on an Olympus EVOLT E-300. The lug latches on the door, both cracked and will not let the Card Door latch closed. In the meantime, I have been using a snip of black electrical tape to keep the door closed.

Just bought a Sharp VL-ZL at a yard sale. Great price but I'm beginning to see why. First came the 'dew' issue, but I read here what that is and what to try. The next day a new problem occurred, and this one's not only weird, but I can't find anyone online with a similar issue. The cassette door will not stay closed with a tape inserted. Take the tape out and it closes fine. Any thoughts? Thanks.

I have a Canon Elura 100 Mini DV Camcorder. Previously there were times when it would not eject a tape until it stubbornly decided to. Now it will not accept a tape. The spindles turn & it makes a running sound, the little tape door will close but then pop back open. Any thoughts on what this could be?

Hinge Pins The hings pins for the door to the memory card compartment have disappeared. The camera won't turn on unless the door is closed. I am using duck tape to hold the door in place. I tried Fujifilm and a local camera shop. Both said would cost $160.00 and take 6 weeks. Anyone have a helpful suggestion?

The cassette cage holding my tape in my Canon ZR65 camcorder will not release the tape. The door is open and the cage tries to move forward or backward (barely) and then stops---won't open up. I dropped my charger for my battery a few days ago---could the battery not be getting enough power to the camera to release the tape? This has never happened before.

You can test the charger using a multimeter (it has +-0.5 volts from voltage written on charger), or go to a local repair shop and have it tested.A more serious problem is if the tape is stuck inside or the release mechanism is broken. In ... Digital Cameras

I dropped my Fujifilm s1000fd and the battery door wouldn't stay closed, so I had to tape it down for it to work, now it won't turn on at all, how can I fix it?

It is possible that because you had trouble with the battery door not staying closed the intermittent power from the batteries has blown the fuse inside. Thats just a guess tho but my S1000fd also has a damaged door catch and I drilled a hole through ... Fuji FinePix S1000FD Digital Camera
