How to remove the CF door latch


\015 I would like to know the correct procedure in removing the Compact Flash door latch on my Canon S400.\015\012The original door latch broke a small prodruting tooth that held the latch closed. I can find and purchase a new door, but I'm not sure of the correct procedure to follow to remove the old latch and replace it with the new one. The camera will not operate unless the latch is closed.\015\012Thank you\015

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.

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)

I have a Nikon D40 where the battery cover latch has broken through on the bottom of the camera body. It's similar to a door jab busting where the latch fits into the door jab. It looks like the bottom of the body can be unscrewed and I'm trying to find the part online so I can repair.


You'll have to get that from Nikon, ( the bottom cover ). I doubt if you will find it else where.Nikon Parts 841 Apollo Street, Suite 100, El Segundo CA 90245(310) 414-8107, (310) 322-6979 ... Digital Cameras

I just removed the SD card to view some pictures and now when I put it back in it will not latch and stay down. I have tried two other cards as well and none will latch and stay down. They do not seem to go down as far as I am used to seeing them, like something is in the slot but with a light and magnifying glass I do not see anything in the way. Any ideas? TX DW


The first thing that comes to mind is to make sure you have it in the right direction. You should have the metal connectors of the CD card facing AWAY from the batteries. Even if the card fits the other direction, it is a must to have the connector ... Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera

Hi, i purchased a Siemens wirefree door chime about 3 months ago (the model is either a DCWF13 or DCWF14). However, approximately every three weeks since i purchased the chime i have had to remove the batteries and then replace them as the door chime stops working. Once the batteries have been re-inserted (NOT NEW BATTERIES) the chime then works again for a while. It would appear that the chime is losing it's memory!! Can you please advise what i should do.
