Well I did a bad thing and I am not upset at all. I did mention that my sd battery door was loose and broke. and now its over I broke the door, I forgot to close it al the way, and well I amy be able to order a new part ut not going to. I did get footage of the crash, and wouldn't you know. it never showed it flipping it shut off as if I just stopped lol

upt to 60.00 shipping no thank you for ebay

the door can be glued

the camera is intakced

the door will stayed closed.

And I will look for a new one on ebay

I am in need of a new one anyway but I did not want it to go out like that. Lol

What a start for the New YEar.................. gonna see the ride a stiff gear needs let loose too tight that must have been the reason the car gave out.

alright I got the Rc truck fixed, oops I should say the mustek, I got some crazy glue and we know that never works.

So a soldering iron. melting the old plastic to the body using some new plastic ifI had grey plastic it would look far better. now i will sand it out a lil and well it is not perfect. and yep

The camera is now a repair how to fix it work around the house etc camera. and my aiptek mpvr is my trip camera boo hoo hoo. it was getting old and the special effect never worked nor did the flash, so now the door is no way to be repaired a peice of duct tape does the trick.

and happy again but WOW on Ebay 60 for shipping that is world robbery

vid of door working

got my Dremil, well a friends dremil, you know we borrow stuff and hold on to it till it is asked back.

gothe remaining glue off the camera , its plastic, the door is not aligned perfect, but it does my trick I need it to do.

looking at it it is not bad but snapped picreal looks bad lol

at least I know my camera got bashed bad, and still works............................

That's one UGGGGGGGGLLLLY camera lol :-)! How did you manage to break it like that?! Looks like you took a hacksaw to it! :?

oh, and ALWAYS CARRY PROTECTION. In this case, a $5 Samsonite case from Wal Mart would do the trick :G. I've got one and it's weatherproof, fits my MPVR like a glove, AND has plenty of padding to absorb shock. It's also got room for cables, spare batteries, the remote, the charger and even some earbuds. Of course, it's VERY tricky to get the MPVR OUT with all that IN :Gbut hey, at least it holds it all!

fishycomics Jan 2, 2006 11:49 AM

yep. I got my rc truck out as usual and got it taped down. well the truck felt like flipping and sure enouh he dor was not fully closed, i said leave it alone I am onl doinga short vid. wel sure enough BAM!

yep I broke it. did not bother me as it is back in working order lol taken a serious flip and I soldered plastic, with some crazy glue lol

all working now. any ways the battery door is broken so it made no difference b/c the part that holds it closed is the whole camera case.

rather use it as my spare cam. now

rather pay up to 60.00 shippingfor an Ebay one ha ha ha my replacement will be a digilife 520. or a new camcorder (home movie) jvc canon etc 25x optical but not on the truck lol

I have a RC truck....and my 4500 is a piece of crap anyway....HMMMMMM :-)

Why didn't I think of that sooner?! :G

fishycomics Jan 2, 2006 12:44 PM

ha ha ha I placd mine on top and easily forgot what a crash can do. made a vid as wel not one but a few, lol

Cresho Jan 13, 2006 10:16 PM

I feel for you and also like a brother with the same brand and model. That is very ugly :paranoid:

I carry mines all the time and i cannot imagine how much i would miss it if something were to happen to it. The first dent i got on it pissed me off so much. Now the aluminum cover on the oposite side has an awkward shimmer.

fishycomics Jan 14, 2006 5:46 AM

and the worst part is its obsolete trying to get find a ebayine but will be hard. I have the 3500 w/o machro no biggie

it still works lol

fishycomics May 26, 2006 1:40 PM
