Hi, I did a mess, my camera has follen down and I broke the battery door, since the camera is perfect, I'd like to find a replacement. Any idea? Is there a service or private who could sell a spare part like this?

The door has an interlock on it. You probably broke the door. The door on some of these cameras can be replaced from the outside. You must make sure the interlock switch is not broken as well. The tabs on the housing of the camera can get bent or snapped off if enough force is used. A broken door will be $75 there abouts, installed. A broken detect switch, adds about $45 (A board). A broken case may set you back an additional $75
The same thing happened to me this week. I called Canon Canada directly and asked to order the part (The battery compartment door).
They gave me a phone number to call and I was able to order the replacement door for about $8.00 + $10-$12 shipping. Hope this helps!
I'm having the same problem with my DSC-W1 camera. I dropped my camera and the battery door latches broke.
I found a replacement door on Ebay for $9.95
I followed the instructions in the description and easily removed the broken door from my camera. Now i'm just waiting on the new door to arrive so I could slide the new door in.
I hope this was helpful.
Here's the seller I bought the door from. Hopefully the seller has more doors. =) :
I have the same hp 850, No way to fix it, So to hold the Battery Door Down, I Drill'ed a small hole through the top. & through the case
where, the camera latch Broke, & do it Real Slow..... Put a Sheetmetal Screw in the hole i drilled & it Work's Find. Just do it SLOW<<<<<<<< Good Luck & it's up to You What size to use
So Think it Over before you Try it....Slow slow slow, & the right size Drillbit,screw, & turn it in Slow.. P.S. It was do that! or $500
Down the Drain, Good Luck, The Wizard
The camera will work with the charger cord plugged in, but you are limited to taking photos only near a power source. I have the same issue; broken battery door...Still looking for another hard broke 850 to take parts off of.
Yes i have fixed it.
Sorry for my spell, but i try.
First i kutt off the little broken plastic-bits with a knife. Demontage the four skrews in the battery flip. I take a little bit stainless string ca 0,5 mm dia and ca 20mm long. I hold this string
with a handtool (tong)and put a soldering-heater on the end off the string and pusch the string troth down
two times and get two holes there the two tabs have been.And after that a bend with a tong the string like an U (2x90 degrees) exaktly after the hole-with.
And after that a pusch down the string in the two holes exaktly so high so the little finger on the battery-door go in. Test and try with the battery-door. And take a thinn tong and bend out the string to the left and to the right inside the kamera. Thats it. Work with care and slow and exaktly with mm-tholeranse. Good luck !!
