Zoom F1 - broken pin to battery lid

Post by maggan » Mon Jan 21, 2019 5:53 pm

Hello fellow zoomers!

First post for me... Tried to search for F1 in this forum but it's to short and couldn't find any better place for this thread than here. If the topic is wrong please let me know how and where to put it.

I just experienced the same issue as this post:

The zoom customer service says that a new lid and pin won't solve the issue. I don't get that because when looking at it, it seems like just a small plastic replacement will give me full functionality again though, the piece is VERY sensitive when locking.

Has anyone else experienced this behaviour on the zoom f1?

Thanks for following up. It's reassuring to know that they would back this, since it is probably a fairly common kind of break.

I always treat those battery covers like they're made of childrens' hopes & dreams.
