Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L20 Digital Camera ?

I have ordered a replacement battery door for a Nikon Coolpix L20 and want to know how to change it.


Answers :

It's doable. A few things to consider before you start.

1. Make sure it's the door and not the frame of the camera itself. I got a new door and replaced it only to find that the part of the frame that receives the door latch was broken.

2. There are several fragile parts in the camera (notably an aluminum strip on the bottom of the camera, opposite the battery door). I would suggest that if you are nervous about operating on cameras and the like, you find a friend who is comfortable with this.

For removal of the back half of the frame, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xg6vczoliB0

You will need, however to pry off the FRONT part of the frame to get to the pin that holds the battery door. Do this carefully; you don't need to get it off completely to see the head of the pin.

The head of the pin is bent at a 90° angle. The head is about 2 millimeters long. You will need to get a fine instrument (a sewing needle will do the trick) to get beneath it, and pull it out. You only need to pull it out about 3/4 of the way to lift the battery door and slide it off.

Now, just do the above in reverse to reassemble the camera. Snapping the back and front into place can be tricky, so look carefully how the screw holes need to meet parts of the frame before pressing too hard.

Good luck!

I have a Nikon Coolpix S610 (I think model #32507688). The little orange battery lock that keeps the battery in place broke and fell out. The outer door does not hold the battery in and the camera does not work or shuts down if we don't constantly hold the battery in place during use. Can I purchase this piece and replace it myself. Quotes on a repair of this is almost as much as a new camera. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I have several Nikon D40 cameras for my yearbook program. We have generally had good luck, but the doors on two of the cameras have either broken or are not closing smoothly. I do not want to be without the cameras if I can order doors and put them on myself. Has anyone done this? How complicated is it to replace the doors? Thanks


Yes the doors warp and cause this problem, the real issue here is that you can't buy the parts or the tech manuals for the camera, that is the exclusive domain of the Nikon factory service centers, so what this means is if u want to fix the camera yo ... Digital Cameras
