Question about Nikon N80 35mm SLR Camera
The latch tips broke off. Purchased new door. Moved all the old parts from the old door to the new one and attached new door to camera body. The only part I cannot get on is the "Focus Area Selector". It is so frustrating because it looks like it should snap right on, but it doesn't. Please Please Please Help! There are no instructions, videos or otherwise available anywhere on the WEB!
It does snap on. If it doesn't then you probably broke it trying to get it off the old door.

Parts are scarce unless you get them from a scrap camera. If the broken bit is on the body then it's not worth bothering. If it's on the door then it's fairly easy to swap the door from a donor camera.
But as you can buy an n75/F75 in virtually as new condition for under £50 on auction websites you have to decide whether a repair is cost effective.

Can it be repaired? It needs a new latch piece. Maybe a new door, if its all one piece.
I do not own one so not sure about that model. Look at the door hinge. If a small lever sticks out of the hinge, it may be easily removed and replaced with a new door. otherwise you need to remove the bottom plate of the camera to replace the door. Be very careful doing so as things could pop out when you open it.
You could also send it in to a repair shop, where they will also clean, lubricate and adjust it before returning.
Is it worth it? Only you can answer that. You might be able to pickup a used one on Ebay, so you have a source of parts.
If you have no reason to keep that particular camera, replace it with a newer Nikon, so you can keep using your flash and lenses.
