Question about Cameras

The Battery Door on my Sony Cybershot DSC-S40 won't open.

I cannot open the battery door on my camera. I had not used it for a while, and when I tried to open the battery door, it wouldn't budge. There are no batteries inside. I've pushed down on the tiny gray button, pushed toward the outside of the camera, just like the directions indicate, but it doesn't move.I've tried prying it open, but all I've done is nick up the button and plastic case.

No easy solution except:
1. Remove all 3 screws from body.
2. Carefully wedge off the back half of body.
3. The back half is connected to the front half by a small cable. Don't break this!
4. The door has a hinge pin. Wedge up and remove this pin.
5. With small screwdriver, wedge off the door from top. Should pop out.
6. Apply small amount of oil on sliding areas.
7. Reinsert door. If still stuck, see step 5.
8. Reassemble camera back and screw down.
9. The reason for sticking is unknown, but door can still be removed by popping off as in step 5.

The door of sony cyber-shot DSC-S500 which keeps battery and memory card does not close properly.How can it be fixed


Yes, It can be fixed if your good hands on Exp. However, When the camera hit the floor did it dent the lip/edge surrounding the batter door. If so it may not be fixable, and you may be better of getting a new one, there cheap enough! Let me know the cond. post a picture.

I need a battery door for a sony digital still camera T200. Can I get one? Where?


Hi, Sometimes people will list parts like that on Kijiji when their camera has died however with the battery doors on those Sony's you have to disassemble the entire camera in order to install the new battery door. If you're not comfortable with that I'd suggest sending it in to get repaired, if you let me know your location I can suggest somewhere to take it.

Cybershot DSC-P200 broken battery/memory stick cover


I suggest that you contact Sony PAS to get the new Battery cover at 1-800-488-SONY (7669)

Phone Hours:
Monday to Friday - 8:00 am to 12 am (Midnight) ET
Saturday and Sunday - 9:00 am to 8:00 pm ET


Then, contact the nearest dealer to get the Battery door fixed instead of sending for service.
All you have to do is, press the pin on both the sides of the Battery door and insert in the hole available for battery door on camera.

Plastic catch on battery door worn away so no longer catches. Needs replacing.


The battery door replaces together with chassis, so it could get expensive. You will have to contact your local Sony service center.

Sony Cybershot S40 has white screen.still sounds like picture is being taken, reviewed, etc...is there anything I can do thanks


This sounds incredibly stupid but it instantly works- I had this problem with both of my daughter's camera (same model number)
On the front of the camera, to the right of the lense and under the flash, it says "Cyber-shot". Press that spot really hard/punch it. The LCD should return instantly.

Sony Cyber-Shot Battery Compartment Door Broken


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. =) :
