Having problems with your HP Photosmart MZ67 Digital Camera ?

Battery door latch broken

\015 I just got this camera on Ebay and am SO happy with it...but I accidentally dropped it the other day, and the latch on the battery door apparently broke off. I can still use the camera, as the battery door still slides back into place and holds the batteries in, but it is not secure. Is there a way to purchase a battery door and put it on myself, and is it fairly easy to do?\015

Answers :

Is it the battery door? or the small plastic post thats broken. There should be four of them. When you slide the latch there are little metal things that slide into place which secures the door. If one is broken I dont think there is much you can do HP no longer can fix these. If its just the door you may have a chance at fixing it as Steve was saying. Good Luck But check the posts to see if its them..
Unfortunately HP will not sell you a camera battery door. If you can find another camera that is broken with a good battery door you may have a chance.

\015\012To repair/transfer the new battery door, you will have to use a small jewerly store screw driver that you can buy at the dollar store and use it to push the door hinge bar to one side of the camera.
\015\012
\015\012Then, pull the door hinge out but be careful not to lose the tiny spring that is installed in between the hinges. ( Make sure that you know and understand how to put it back the same way.) You can then pull the battery door from the camera.

\015\012Do the same thing to good camera. Practice on the broken camera first. The second time it should go easier for you. When you install the new battery door, push the hinge bar in all the way to one side of the camera. Hold the door to give you the proper alignment and then use the small screw driver to pry the hindge bar from the one side to make sure that it is equally in each of the black hinge connectors.

\015\012This worked for me. I was fortunate enough to find someone who had a broken HP MZ67 digital camera that had a "good" battery door. It took me about 30 minutes to complete the job. I hope this will help you. You can email me if you need more advice. I am a computer tech.

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
