Introduction

When replacing the battery, realize that there is an adhesive which binds the battery to the camera. Given the adhesive, force might be required to remove the battery. However, you should be able to remove it with your hands.

Thank you so much for showing me how to do this. FYI: For the digital LCD screen version of this camera, there is only one screw to take out on that first step.

Can you tell me where I can buy the replacement battery for this camera? Thanks.

I also need a battery and it seems almost impossible to find one to buy. Please let me know if anybody has found a replacement battery that fits.
