Re: white plastic between card slot and battery charges...
If you feel technically inclined you can open the camera carefully and take it apart to the point where you can remove the upper circuit board ( NOTE 1: make a careful note of every screw you remove since they are different size and need to be used exactly in the same order) and then the small black plastic assembly above the circuit board below, you can see the defective switch on top of the 2nd board, remove the plastic part of the switch until you see the bare 2 contacts on the circuit board, solder a small piece of wire to bridge the contacts, now very carefully reassemble the camera observing the exact order of screws used, see NOTE 1. If everything is back in order insert the battery and the camera should work now. note: should you not be inclined to do this work and want to sell the camera as is for spare parts I am interested, drop me a note at: cocnutray at yahoo.com. A Nikon repair shop will charge between $80 to $110 FOR THIS TYPE OF REPAIR, THEY WILL ACTUALLY REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE MICRO-SWITCH. HOPE THIS HELPS :-)

Have you tried removing the battery, charging it, reinstalling the battery and then powering it on. also remove the memory card and reinstall it. You didn't say whether you had removed the usb cord either.
Hi Sasha - New Nikon repair parts are not available in the marketplace. You'll find repair parts that are offered for sale are used. The used products may be very good - and in some cases practically new - but you'll never know for sure. A battery door and other non-electronic parts should be pretty easy to determine if they have been abused or damaged upon arrival. Electronic parts are going to be a crapshoot.
I was quoted $270 to replace a sensor in my old D70 last year. I found one on eBay for $55. I have no idea how many times the sensor was used, but fortunately it seems to work fine. The work to replace it was tedious and required a very steady hand and some small specialty tools. Replacing the battery door will probably be nowhere near as involved - but I don't know your level of ability, either. You should ask anyone that is selling this part for written instructions or a link to instructions or video that details the replacement process. Read or watch the directions and determine if it is in your skill set. If not, you'll never go wrong sending the camera to Nikon for repair. It will only cost you a bit more - but it will be done right and your camera will not incur additional damage during dis-assembly and reassembly.
I hope this helped and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks.
look into memory inserting slot if you see a bent pin, I doubt it, most likely something internal failed, as of now fixing the camera is not worth it unles Nikon fix it and most likely they will as this is possibly internal component failure, contact them and send it for a repair, they will give you estimate, if it is free or acceptable let them fix it if not garbage can will gladly accept it and move on.
