Having problems with your Sanyo VPC-S1085 Digital Camera ?

Kid broke the battery door, will this cause the camera to not power on?



Answers :

It certainly can depending on how the battery compartment is designed. If the door is just a cover to hold the battery in then tape "could" be used to serve this purpose. However, if either end of the battery is designed to come in contact with the battery then it is very possible it will no longer power on.

My Fuji 1500s 10 Mp camera will now power on when USB cable is connected. As per the upload instructions on the monitor, I am to plus the USB cable into my computer, then into the camera, then power on the camera. At which time the upload to Finepix Viewer should commence.

I've replaced the battery door using the solution on this site, but still have a problem. The battery door does not slide all the way into the slot and will not stay shut when batteries are present. there is a 1/16th inch gap between the door and the camera body. The original door was sitting the same way and think that is what caused the clip on the door to break off. Any suggestions?

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.
