I see this message at least 3 times, so it must be important.
Looks like a mechanical problem. But not having the camera in my own hands I have to do some educated guesses.
Could be something broke off. Could be a small chip of plastic or a very small piece of metal. Difficult to repair it yourself. But you also could look if there is something in the battery compartment that should not be there. Could be just a little bit of debris, that is lifting the battery, (not if the battery is behind the lock) or debris in the door, so you can't close the battery compartment complete, and it can't be locked.
If you can't find anything and it looks as if the battery compartment closes correct, and still you only can't lock the door, please visit your dealer or the Nikon service centre closest to you.

Dear Readers, i have a Nikon camera and it works great. I have had it for a year now, but last week it got dropped, and the battery door will not stay closed. NOTE: There is nothing actually wrong with...


I would use some epoxy.
Put a big drop where the plastic part is missing, wait until it hardens and then take a razor blade and shape it the same size of the missing latching part.

Epoxy should be strong enough to hold your door in place.

I dropped my Nikon Coolpix L1 camera and cracked the battery door. Now whenever I take a picture, I have to hold the battery door manually so it will stay shut and recognize the power of the battery. I'm...


So other than the broken battery door (very common) it works just fine?

Well you could go and spend a fortune on another camera. Or you might decide that a few cents worth of sticky tape to hold the door closed is far better value.

I've fixed the same fault on similar Nikon models before by fashioning replacements for the broken plastic tab/loops using shaped short lengths of paper clip wire glued into carefully filed channels using epoxy resin (the designs vary, but Nikon keep making them of plastics with all the structural integrity of cheese!). Doing it that way makes a far neater and original-looking job of it and restores normal functionality.

My Nikon coolpix L11 battery door does not close properly, or, the battery compartment is faulty. The camera has no dc power. Help!


Try using a dc adapter and pressing on the battery cover if it is loose. If it is loose go to bocaphoto.com for replacement door.

Unable to keep battery door closed.


We have the same problem and tried the new pin solution as well, but it eventually broke. We are now using strong tape.
