Battery compartment won't open?

\015 I don't know how to open the battery compartment. I tried pushing it and pulling and everything so can someone please tell me how to open it??\015

Answers :

Push the cover toward the back of the camera and then toward the end, just as the arrow indicates, then the end of the cover nearest the end of the camera will swing open. Follow the illustration in the "Insert the Batteries" section of the manual (page 12 in my copy).

My battery won't come out - when I open the battery compartment, the battery will only come about one forth out and then stops. What is holding it?

I have a Kodak 7.2 model# kcghl83122853. My problem is the shutter wont open. I have tried battery replacement, still does this. Sometimes once it is charged it will open. But then it does it again. Just have no clue as to when it will open. Very disappointing for some family gatherings I have missed out with no show on shutter.


This could be as simple as dust/sand particles or trapped within the layers of the lens or it could be a mechanical failure. Either way, it's time for a new camera. It would cost you more to have it fixed than to buy a new (better) camera outright es ... Kodak EasyShare M1033 Digital Camera
