Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera ?

Problem started with battery door

\015 The the memory card was inserted, then when I tried to close the battery door, it would not close all the way. At this point it got stuck, and would not open or close. I forced the door open and was then able to close it properly, but at that point, the camera would not function. I think something was damaged when I had to force the door open. But am contemplating, do I spend a lot of money to get it repaired or just buy a new camera?\015

Answers :

The door has an interlock on it. You probably broke the door. The door on some of these cameras can be replaced from the outside. You must make sure the interlock switch is not broken as well. The tabs on the housing of the camera can get bent or snapped off if enough force is used.
A broken door will be $75 there abouts, installed.
A broken detect switch, adds about $45 (A board).
A broken case may set you back an additional $75

Put a new fully charged battery in - the camera would lasted for a couple of minutes and then would not switch on. The battery works fine in an identical camera. Put in a second battery - that worked for a bit then started flashing battery problem and wouldn't switch on. 5 minutes later - it did switch on - lasted for a short time and then started flashing ERR 99, and then wouldn't switch on again. Battery works fine in an identical camera. 10 minutes later - started working again, but the Sigma


It is due to some kind of electrical contact failure. For more \015\012details and common causes of Err 99 read the following article:http://www.lensrentals.com/news/2008.12.31/canon-err99 ... Canon Digital Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera with EF-S 17-85mm IS Lens

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?

Battery Problems CANON A80 Battery Problems Have had a CANON A80 for nearly three years. The first two years were great. The batteries would last for ages between charges, and with a new baby we took lots of photos. Then the batteries started playing up. Fully charged batteries would only last a few days, or if left would not power up at all. Have replaced the batteries, and the chargers with no improvement. Here in NZ there is a huge wait for repairs, so if it is beyond repair I?ll just re

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)

My canon 20d stopped taking photos for no aparant reason. Kept getting error 99 and when I re insert the battery it starts clicking on it's own whether turned on or not.

I need a new BATTERY DOOR for my Fuji Finepix S7000. I tried to order just the door from numerous sources & they could not get it (because Fuji insists on me sending my entire camera to them)! This repair would take 60 seconds IF I could just get a door....I finally sent the entire camera to Fuji & they charged me over $100. Obviously the door is flimsy, but I love the camera. Would like to order the door ONLY (and maybe even a spare for future similar problem) Thanx!
