On my PENTAX Optio Z10, the slide shutter cover came loose, it slides left and right to open and close. I didn't lose any parts but I can't slide it back on. I currently have a rubber band holding it together. How can I get it fixed, I like the camera, it takes wonderful pictures. Unfortunately I have had it for more than a year.

The cover of the battery compartment does not lock closed properly due to the fact that the front recess for the locking tab has snapped off, is it possible to replace the battery cover on this camera, the camera works well, but when you load batteries in and shut the cover it does not keep the pressure on the batteries causing the camera to shut down.

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 have a VIVITAR CAMERA SERIES 1 / VIVICAM 7500i. The battery suddenley does not fit into the battery compartment and does not shut or close right. Could it be the battery is somekind of warped and not secure into the battery compartment?

I have a powershot a620. The battery compartment is coming undone...where you hold it..so the batteries have a little jiggle room. When it first "popped out" a small amount it was fine. on a recent trip it started coming apart more and the batteries then quit holding a charge. A fresh set of batteries now lasts about 20 min. I am guessing it might be because they don't have as good of a connection but I cannot get that part of the camera to go back under the "lip" and am afraid to take it apart

I have a digital camera type HP945 which has lately given me trouble. Recentlyy, it was stored away for short period whilst it was not in use. Unfortunately, the four AA batteries were left in it during this time. As a consequence, corrosion of the batteries occurred. I have done my best to clean the terminals in the camera and I have replaced the batteries. However, when I now close the battery compartment, I am confronted with the red timer light coming on either at flashing intervals or c

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.

I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them. If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons toget ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

The small sliding bar which operates the closure to the battery compartment on my Canon Ixus 750 Camera has popped out when I tried to open it to replace the battery. It is made of plastic and has two small hooks or lugs on the underside which appear to engage in two holes in the camera. I am having difficulty putting it back and am reluctant to force it in case I break one of the plastic hooks. What is the best way forward?

Sorry to tell you that this is a common problem. You may be lucky in that the usual case is that the flash gets stuck in the down position and is unusable.
