Hey if this is still usefull...
you dont nescesarly need a new door, there is a small black pin at the very top of the slot on the camera body and a grey piece of plasitic sticking out on the door. The camera wont turn on unless the pin is pushed in (normaly by the piece on the door) so just find a way to keep it pushed in. you wont need a new door.

I have never done this, however I have heard that u jut take the camera to the place u bought it from or any other electronic shop and ask for a new catch. If the camera is a common model then parts should be easy to get. This must be quite a common problem I would imagine so I am sure the retailer u bought it from can help, don't forget your proof of purchase,
I can't imagine the new door will be free.
This sort of thing with the door happened to me the other day and I thought I would have to buy a new door, however I was able to get someone else to put it back in place.
