Answers :

I have the simple and cheap fix to a frustrating problem!
Just take a tripod base and screw it into the bottom of the
camera. The square tripod base is large enough to hold the battery
cover on the camera closed without any interference.
So there you go! No tape, rubber bands or other crazy contraptions!
Cheap, Quick and simple.

I have a s5500 with the battery lid clips broken.. fuji says ,, nope no\015\012warranty on that part ,, what a joke,,$120 dollars labour plus parts\015\012and freight for repair... anyway ,, went to jaycar (electrical supplies\015\012etc) and found a small metal clip/ fastener that I used on an existing\015\012exterior screw below where the strap is located. i then placed another\015\012screw in the lid that allows the remainding hole in the fastener to\015\012slip over, works like a charm. took me around 3 minutes to do and does\015\012not affect the grip on the camera and still alllows it to be easily\015\012opened and closed. I am most pleased i now have my camera back.

I have ordered a battery door for my CD43 as the plastic tip has broken and a new door with new tip will keep the door closed tightly. I see the rod in the back of the door with a black cover which I assume can be grasped with a needle nose pliers and pushed to the right to release the door hinge. Is that right?

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

Fujufilm S700 won't power on. New batteries and are in correctly. Battery door closed properly, however, the door covering the SD is broken in half. Will this cause the camera not to power on?
