How do I Repair a Kodak Camera Battery Door?

by Matt Brogan

Kodak makes some of the most popular camera models for photographers of all levels. In between shooting, a camera's battery requires charging and the most common practice requires removing the battery to charge it in an external charger. Over time, general wear and tear can cause the battery door to become faulty. It might not close correctly, the spring can lose compression or the inner pin can become bent resulting in the door not opening fully. New battery doors are inexpensive and can quickly replace your old, faulty one.

1

Open your Kodak's camera door and remove the battery or batteries. Leave the camera door open.

2

Remove all the screws from the camera's outer case using a Phillips-head screwdriver.

3

Pull the two pieces of casing apart. You might need to use the flat-head screwdriver to pry them apart.

4

Push the small metal pin inward that's holding the door to the camera with a pair of tweezers. Make sure you push the side that has the spring attached to it. The pin will slide inward until you hear a small click.

5

Remove the spring using the tweezers. The pin will now be lose. Take out the pin and remove the camera door from the camera.

6

Insert the new camera door, pin and spring by following the above steps in reverse.
