Having problems with your Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z3 Digital Camera ?

I dropped my Z3 and broke the battery door. Where can I find a replacement? The camera functions with a couple of rubber bands holding the battery cover down, so it loooks like I didn't hurt the functionasllity.


Answers :

I had this same accident befall my Z1--
Simple fix: I bent a nice looking piece of Chrome plated rod.. (from an old grill that I had dismantled.) Bend them in a vise and hammer nice and square at the corners. Measure the exact distance, and make the bends marked at the vise edge-- It will be perfectly tight-- Holds the door closed equal to or better than then plastic latch..-- and slips on and off easily!
If you want a picture let me know-
Unfortunately, you can't get new spares. Your camera is an obsolete model and Sony (took over Konica Minolta) no longer support the model nor do they retain spare parts.

Your only option is to look on auction websites for a broken example, or to even ask on your local FreeCycle and Freegle groups. But if you do buy a spares donor make sure to ask whether the part you need is functional and present. After taking what you need you can try reselling what's left. I often find that by doing so I get virtually free spare parts.

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?

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. There aren't any camera repair stores in our area any longer. Don Wicks

Battery Cover Broken. The spring contacts for the batteries push the cover away from the body. The retaining lugs on the cover seem to be distorted or broken. Camera works OK if i bind sellotape around the body to hold the cover in place. (Not convenient and doesn't look good.)Can I have the cover replaced or can I get a new cover myself and fit it? How difficult?

Battery Charge My DSC-T1 battery does not seem to charge, when I plug it in, the yellow charge light comes on for awhile, than goes out. If I drop down the cover to turn it on, it comes on, and the battery shows not even half charged.

Get another battery and try charging it. You should have a second, backup battery anyway. That should narrow it down between the charger and the battery as to which is defective. How old is the camera? It may be a better investment to put the money i ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

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)

Brand new battery won't hold charge. Camera is three years old. I bought an extra battery when I bought the camera. They both seemed to go bad at the same time, so I recently bought two new lithium batteries, just like the originals. I'm having the same symptom--the charge lasts for only a few photos--maybe 50 without the flash.


If this happens even to new batteries, it may no longer be an issue with the batteries, but it can be an issue with the camera itself. check the maximum number of shots that the camera can take with the batteries per its specification. if it should p ...
