Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera
There are four small plastic pieces that hold the door shut, two on the door ,two on the camera housing, the door wont close because two have snapped off, one on the door and one on the housing. I tried super glue, it does not work.

I'm having the same problem with my DSC-W1 camera. I dropped my camera and the battery door latches broke.
I found a replacement door on Ebay for $9.95
I followed the instructions in the description and easily removed the broken door from my camera. Now i'm just waiting on the new door to arrive so I could slide the new door in.
I hope this was helpful.
Here's the seller I bought the door from. Hopefully the seller has more doors. =) :
In addtion, I found the last two posts on this forum very helpful:
Good Luck! =)

As a first call I would try visiting the smaller specialist camera shops that do repairs.
The manufacturers are starting to hide behind blanket 1 year warranties that only cover manufacturing defects. Basically if it works when you first use it - they won't help on anything else as it comes under "improper use" or "physical damage"
They are producing them cheaper than they can repair them, so, if you do return a genuine claim within a year - they send you a new one, and bin the old one.
They also charge high prices for repairs.
My personal advice is to watch Ebay for an identical model sold for spares. Just do a search,save it and they will email any matches to you.
Then just swap defective parts.
This is the cheapest option.

You have a broken spring in the film holding end. I would get it repaired so the roll of film doesn't pop out of place and ruin the whole roll or damage the shutter.

If the spring did not damage the carriage flex I would suggest just using some epoxy to hold the spring properly in place. If the spring did damage the flex (as shown in this picture) then you might contact HP and enquire about an extended warranty for this issue. In the US call HP at 1-800-HPINVENt.
