Hello and Welcomethe Canon A560's bottom panel is reasonably flat, with a sliding door to access the battery compartment and a threaded plastic tripod mount off in the opposite corner. The battery door and tripod mount are far enough away from each other to permit quick battery changes while working with most tripods To close the battery cover first Hold it and make it Flat and then by the tip of Your thumb Press it in inner sideTo demonstrate it the image is given below: Further assistance i am here to help Please don't forget to click on Four thumbs which are given below if it is helpful THANKS & Keep Using Fixya
You need a head. The tripod has a standardized screw for accepting a tripod head, which is a larger screw than for the tripod mount on the camera. There are a variety of heads available, ball heads, three-axis heads, geared heads, pan-and-tilt heads, and more.

There's a little battery in the camera under where the tripod mount is. Make sure your camera is out of warranty before attempting any repairs. Opening the case will void your warranty. Do this at your own risk.
1) Remove all six screws from the outside of the case.
2) You'll need to loosen the LCD panel, there are two little tabs holding the panel, and one screw up by the speaker (photo/movie/view) switch.
3) Remove the screw by the speaker, this will give you access under the LCD. Do not unhook the LCD cables.
4) Now under the LCD panel you should see a screw that connects the metal backplate with the tripod mount, remove that screw.
5) On the bottom, on the main motherboard, there's another screw holding the tripod mount in.
6) After removing the tripod mount, you should see a battery under the LCD cable.
7) On the main motherboard, gently (GENTLY) remove the large LCD cable and pull it through to the other side.
8) You should now see the battery pretty clearly.
9) Replace the battery. MS614X
10) Reverse the steps.
I got an estimate of $125 to fix the Coolpix 7900 door, and the camera probably isn't worth that much. So I looked more closely at the camera to create a jury rig fix. As I never use a tripod with the camera, I thought about using the threaded tripod mount. I found a very short 1/4 inch thread screw in my garage and cut a thin metal strip to about 2 1/4" x 1/2". I then drilled a 1/4" hole at one end of the strip, laid the strip across the door and tightened the screw through the 1/4" hole and into the tripod mount. The door is now secure. To remove the battery, I simply loosen the screw a little with a dime and pivot the metal strip out of the way. There are many variations that can be done similarly such as using a plastic strip and a plastic 1/4" bolt or even a shorter strip that just covers the door.
Thats a bummer. I don't think there is. I would check with a camera shop. You might want to try some locktite and see it that works but you will probably have to keep the tripod mount permanantly on your camera.
