Re: broken part on camera
I suspect you won't be able to buy the part. However, you might be able to fashion a suitable piece of plastic and glue it in place using an expoy resin adhesive like araldite. Or use gaffer tape to hold it shut! Samsung may be willing to repair it but it'll probably cost you.

The new Ikea Sektion door hinges mount in 2 holes that are horizontal. The dimensions for the hole placement are 62 mm up from the outside bottom of the cabinet where the bottom edge of the door will be. The first hole is 20 mm in from the front edge and the second hole is 33 mm from the first hole or 53 mm from the front edge. The holes can be drilled with a 3/16" bit to a depth of 9/16". After the holes are drilled, the plastic plugs on the back of the hinge mounting plate are pushed into the holes with the orientation triangle "arrow" stamped on the front of the mounting plate pointing toward the cabinet opening. After the mounting plate is flush with the surface, the two wood screws are tightened in the plastic plugs to expand the plugs and secure the mounting plate. The door hinge mounted to the door is then clipped onto the mounting plate by first engaging the "hooks" near the door end of the hinge then snapping the back end of the hinge into the clip at the rear of the mounting plate. The location of the door once mounted can be adjusted by turning the three screws on the hinge. The front screw moves the door right and left when closed. The center screw (recessed in the hinge) moves the door up and down. The back screw moves the door closer or farther from the cabinet when closed. The hinges "snap" the door closed, so if the door is too close to the cabinet the hinges can't snap it closed and the door remains ajar. The trick is to adjust the inner screw to move the door farther from the cabinet until it snaps closed. The snap can be strong, and the little bumper plastic disks you can stick to the door to soften the bump work to some extent. The best solution is to install one soft-close Utrusta piston per door. The piston clicks onto the hinge and slowly closes the door the last bit without a bang.
Do you have a way to test the battery and you know it's ok?
Those batteries have built-in protection circuitry that can cut out or turn off the battery entirely if it detected a problem like a short circuit, etc. And it may not get over it.
Try a 2nd battery or the AC power adapter directly.
Also check that the 3 little pins in the camera DC input jack are intact, straight, and not touching each other.
Some camera's won't turn on if the memory card door is open or the card is ejected but I tested that on my G3 and it still turns on either way.
Ah.... and lastly... there is a little electrical limit switch connected to the battery cover door that disables the camera if the battery door is open. It gets pressed by a small plastic piece attached to the battery cover when you close the battery door. If the plastic piece or the tiny, recessed switch has an issue then the camera won't turn on The switch could be bypassed internally (not easy to do) if that was the problem.
Look for a tiny, thin, black plastic switch about as thin as a staple down in a recessed hole (slot) near the battery cover hinge. Try gentle pushing the battery closed switch "over" a little. You can tell which way to push by observing how the battery door slides into position as you close it. I was able to turn on my camera with the door open by doing this. The switch is very tiny, don't break it.
If the battery door isn't closing all the way that would also cause the same issue.
The battery door on these models just hooks under a wire next to the battery hole. They can pop off rather easily as they are a small piece held in place by a spring, essentially. You can often find the part on ebay for a few $ and snap it in place yourself. The same battery door is used by the XTsi, HTsi, STsi cameras. Its very possible that you did not lock it properly the last time you put in new batteries. Hold the door down while you turn the quarter as you lock or unlock it. Otherwise the pressure of the battery spring will prevent a good lock.
If you have all of the pieces, you can use crazy glue to make the repair, otherwise take your camera to any camera shop where they will have access to whatever broken components need to be replaced. Regards, Joe
most experts hide where you buy these parts. next you need to know what part number it is. sorry, i have not found the website that sells stuff i will call junk little pieces. you'll have trouble i believe
A: To remove the plastic piece with the door lock button and door handle connected to it:
1- Remove the screw in the middle located behind a plastic cover button 2- Push (slide) the whole assembly Forward (toward front of car) Besides the screw, it is held in place by 3 hooks on the backside that hook into holes in the metal door frame 3- Now unhook handle from small metal bar going through door by pushing (toward door) plastic clip (blue?) off of the bar, then the bar will come out of the clip hole, thus releasing the handle. 4- Depress little grey button /bar (purple painted on it)on elec. connector to seperate connector, thus releasing door lock switch
Now the whole assembly (metal handle, door lock switch, and plastic piece) will come off door panel
B: The door is held on by 2-screws, 7-plastic snaps/plugs, and 1-plastic plug.
The screws are located: bottom of hand hold and the other behind the handle, both covered by little covers that have to be pryed off to access the screws.(hint: the screw with the built in spacer goes behind the handle when you are trying to reinstall) The 7-plastic snaps: 3 across bottom and 2 on each side. Not visible, they are mounted to the inside of the panel. The 1-plastic plug is visible at the upper front of the panel and is the same color as the surrounding trim
C: Take off the big plastic triangle piece above the door panel and behind the mirror. Pull/pry off. It has 2 snaps holding it on. one near bottom and one near the front.
D: Light lens prys off from bottom. Unscrew (1/4 turn) the light assembly with bulb still intact from backside of panel
You're making it harder than it has to be. Simply hold the camera in your left hand, and open the battery door so it is standing up. Look closely at the lower left corner of the batterry door. Notice the notch shape. The door plastic door is locked in place by the mating little "L" shape on the hinged door of your camera. Thats all that keeps it from sliding off when you put in batteries. Simply insert a small screwdriver or knife blade in that slot, twist it counterclockwise to push the battery door lock to the left, and slide the door off with no force at all. It's a snap.
Look for the switch on the memory card door of your camera. Usually a small piece of plastic on the door closes the switch when the door is closed. Check to make sure that the plastic piece is not worn down and is making contact with the switch. You can confirm that this is the problem by powering on the camera while closing the switch manually with a toothpick. Make sure you keep your fingers clear of the extending lens while doing this. If the plastic is worn down or broken off, try attaching a small piece of scrap plastic with super glue.
