Hi,
Sure.
Replacement covers on their own rarely surface on ebay, but you might be lucky and find a "donor" camera with a working cover - it will probably work out cheaper than trying to order directly from olympus or their parts department.
The battery cover is attached to the back cover of the camera, you'll need to unscrew it (make sure you take notes of which screws go where as they are not the same).
Hope this helps,
Good luck,
Raf

Broken latch on film door


Usually on this level Nikon it was a plastic "hook", part of the door moulding, that was retained by the latch mechanism in the body. The broken part may still be in there - if it is trip the latch and recover it with a tiny screwdriver or even a needle. If you can't find a replacement back door you can try welding the hook back in place with a low-temperature soldering iron - with the tip perfectly clean and a very steady hand - as long as the door is thermoplastic and not thermosetting. If that doesn't work bend a paperclip or similar to exactly the right shape with the free ends (roughened) long enough to extend into the plastic of the door by 4-5mm., heat the wire and push slowly into the edge of the door. There are many variations of this technique that I've used, all require extremely careful work! Best tip: spend more time thinking than doing. Good luck.

How to replace the door latch on a canon rebel eos ti


The cameras film door has a very small phillips head screw inside the battery doors hinge. Its a pain to take out & replace if you hands are shakey for this screw is so small. Also installing the replacement hinge would be a little harder to install tha removing the broken one.
I hope this information will help you. A camera shop should be able to do it for free if you maybe purchase some items there. Most shops which are very small and privately owned shops will do this for you

Battery door doesn't close tight


Usually part of the plastic battery door breaks off so the sliding latch (when you push the battery door in toward the camera after replacing batteries) can't latch. If this is the problem you can buy a new battery door that will come with a new latch that isn't broken.

Sony Cyber-Shot Battery Compartment Door Broken


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. =) :
