    I just bought same camera for Xmas 07,,,Same problem..it appears that there is a broken piece on cover that normally would hold cover closed tightly. I'm loooking for replacement or will probably return to factory for repair (under warentee I assume).

    I dont have the EXACT problem as others with the door but my problem is about the 5th time we removed the battery, the small yellow or orange battery retainer clip broke. We now have to press the battery into place with a paper clip and wrestle the door closed.

    The camera is not even a few months old, it was received by Nikon yesterday and they sent me a repair authorization request for nearly $90 to repair it!

    Needless to say, we will reject the estimate if a voice call doenst get the repair made, have the camera returned and get rid of it as soon as possible.

    The nerve of these people...

    Bring on the Sony we should have purchased in the first place.

I have an Amana ABB2527DES and the bottom freezer door is not closing tight. Any suggestions?


Inspect door seals for shifting, bunching, and tears and adjust or replace them. Inspect shelving in compartment to make sure of proper positioning. Inspect door baskets for item protruding over the top and holding door back. Inspect door for loose hinges allowing doors to sag.

Battery door won't stay closed on Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S90 Digital Camera


The battery door latch is most likely damaged/broken. Try using a piece of duct tape to keep it closed. I've done this on several cameras with battery door latch issues & the doors stayed shut just fine.

I can't keep the battery door cover closed on my Nikon coolpix digital camera L.22


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.

Cant get back door to stay closed . The lock is stuck in locked position I think and the door is open. When I go to close it, it is'nt staying closed. Had to duck tape it to stay closed. LOL! I keep...


It sounds to me ( correct me if I'm wrong ) like the door latch on the side vertical edge of the door is in the LOCKED POSITION. In order to unlock it perform the following. First electrically with the LOCK button UNLOCK the locks. Now with one hand hold the OUTSIDE DOOR HANDLE IN THE OPEN POSITION, while at the same time FLIPPING OPEN THE LATCH. All Done . Now you can close the door. Hope this helps

I have a Fuji FinePix S5000 and the battery door catches (on the body of the camera) have broken off. Replace complete body assy??? I am sure mine is not the only one. any help appreciated.


I had this problem also (see below).
0241d48.png

After getting poor results with the duct tape solution, I discovered another work-around. This should work whether it is chipped lugs on the door or on the body.

Firstly I used an old camera flash bracket that screws into the tripod socket, and this holds the battery door in place quite securely. However it was too long, so I cut and filed a piece of aluminium 25mm (1") wide by 2.5mm thick to the right length (around 100mm/4") and shape, and made a hole for the bracket screw.

End result is not exactly like new, but more functional than the duct tape and does not further damage the actual camera:

Compartment door will not shut properly, camera will come on


Drill 2 tiny holes, large enough to insert thin paper clip wire. One hole is drilled in the battery compartment door, close to the sidewall but in between the 2 adjacent batteries.
Drill second hole in battery case by first peeling back the ruberized coating slighty. This hole should be adjacent or sighted in line with the first hole. In each case, allow enough in tact plastic door or case so that it can withstand the pressure of a tightened piece of wire. Insert batteries. Then insert wire carefully tto penetrate both holes. Press down hard on battery compartment door and carefully twist the 2 ends of the inserted paper clip wire to secure the compartment door tightly. The one drawback is that each time you wish to change batteries, you will have to follow the above procedure.Don't know of any recalls on this condition.
