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. =) :
Take batteries out and have them checked, and make sure they are fully charged.
Take a pencil eraser and clean/polish the contacts at base of the battery compartment
Take a look at the battery-comp cover place and make sure the contact plate is firm
replace batteries switch on OK
No? Open the battery compartment, place a piece of foil across the batteries and shut it - turn on -OK
Press the cover in
Them it has broken beyond your reach and needs repair or replacement
My Optio 450 has the same type of cover and I am surprised how tough the cover is. I thought it would have broken by now.
I suggest a call to Pentax would answer your question about getting it fixed.
Alternatively, just leave it. The Plastic hinge should keep it closed
The following steps can be taken to maintain the all-weather:
Make sure that all the covers are closed before using the camera. The camera loses its all-weather capability if the battery compartment cover, connector cover or DC-IN jack cover is open.
Wipe any water off the camera before changing the battery or card.
If the camera gets splashed, wipe the water off as soon as possible with a dry cloth. Saltwater spray or droplets can cause damage to the camera if the camera is not wiped dry as soon as possible.
Do not apply excessive force to or attempt to peel off the rubber packing of the battery compartment cover, connector cover or DC-IN jack cover.
If the rubber packing of the battery compartment cover, connector cover or DC-IN jack cover contains dirt or sand, wipe it off before closing the cover.
If the rubber packing becomes worn or damaged, contact the nearest Olympus service center to obtain a replacement part.
