I can put fresh batteries in the camera but it will not turn on what can I do to fix it

Could be that the contacts in the battery compartment are bent or broken. Visually examine. Also most cameras have a switch activated by the battery access door - when the battery access door is closed that switch gets activated and allows the camera to turn on. That switch might not engage properly if the battery door is damaged or doesn't close properly.

Battery door won't stay closed on Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S90 Digital Camera

The battery door latch is most likely damaged/broken. Try using a piece of duct tape to keep it closed. I've done this on several cameras with battery door latch issues & the doors stayed shut just fine.

Fujifilm S1500. Batter compart doesn't close

If you can't return the camera for service, my advice would be to close the battery compartment with tape. Not pretty but better than buying a new camera, I've done it a few times on old cameras and apart from cosmetics, works fine. Just make sure to use enough tape so the batteries won't fly out when using it.

I dropped my nikon coolpix l14 camera and the part that keeps the battery compartment closed chipped, so now the battery compartment will not shut by itself and needs to be held by a rubber band.

I did the same thing and decided to try and fix it myself. Here are the steps to follow after you acquire the new door, which is available online through Boca Photo for about $16 plus shipping.

On the bottom of the camera remove the three small screws and the one bottom screw on the side (left corner) of the camera. With these four screws removed you then gently pry the camera apart at the seam so it opens about 1/8". Then pull the battery door up and you'll see the steel pin the door pivots on. Pull the door and pin up and out and then slide the steel pin into the new door and reverse all the steps.

Broken battery compartment door switch

The switch is a micro switch that is depressed(and not sad :)) by a plastic tag moulded on the battery cover. Once the cover is moved into position and closed, the tag presses on the micro switch closing the switch and thus removing the error message. As with any switch, a switch is simply open or closed, Open = high resistance or O/L, while closed = 0 ohms reistance. You can use a small wire to overcome the switch by soldering the wire to both tags of the switch so it is permenantly 0 ohms. This will send a message to the microprocessor that cover is closed and camera ready for use. Hope this helps.

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. =) :

In addtion, I found the last two posts on this forum very helpful:

Good Luck! =)
