Question about Nikon Coolpix 3200 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery door and latch broken

The door for the battery on my Nikon Coolpix 3100 has a slight crack in the side and upon opening it the latch piece broke off so now I can only keep it closed with a rubber band to keep the connection of the batteries to the door working.  I know that I can purchase a new battery door - I've seen them for sale - but is the little latch able to be repaired - is it worth my while to have these repairs done or just purchase a new camera?

Have used a 5-cent nylon cable tie for years on our CoolPix 990 and it never has failed, and still allows for battery changes. Looks a little funny to some, but is very functional. Don't know if your camera's design is similar enough for this to work, but it may worth trying.

    The solution that I referred to is shown below. Ours is a dedicated
    photomicroscopy camera, but it should be possible to use this same
    approach for a personal use camera. Takes only a minute to do and is completely reversible, if you find a more aesthetic alternative.

I havve a nikon S51 the battery latch is broken


they can repair/replace according to the damage and how it broke off. if the door broke into pieces it will be replaced. Replacing is done 99% of the times since it offers the pressure the battery needs to continue to charge well.

I WOULD SUSPECT THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG ON THIS NEW DOOR THAT THE BATTERIES ARE NOT MAKING GOOD CONTACT WITH THE DOOR AND THEREFORE NOT SUPPLYING POWER TO THE CAMERA. IF IT WORKED BEFORE THE DOOR WAS REPLACED, THERE MUST BE SOMETHING AT THAT POINT. I WOULD LOOK THERE FOR PROPER PRESSURE ON THE BATTERY OR BATTERIES.

Nikon Coolpix 2100/3100/3200 battery compartment door latch broken (again)


I just purchased a new battery door for $15 with shipping from nikon. They sent a simple assembly diagram and I was able to replace the door in 30 minutes. I used a dremel to cut the old door off, but you dont have to do that. I got a little impatient.

Just buy the plastic piece and u can reuse the metal parts for your old battery door.
