To replace the battery door you will need to disassemble the camera.
remove the six screws (#0 phillips) on the sides and the bottom, two
per side. make sure the batteries are removed and the door is open,
whats left of it anyway. slip the front of the camera off, you might
need a small flat screw driver to help separate the halves. with the
front off remove the screw just above the view finder and the one by
the battery compartment in the corner. now pry the back off, start with
the side by the lens. the usb jack will not let you slip the back
straight off so you will have to pry the lens side down a bit and then
push it toward usb jack. with the back off you can remove the remains
of the broken door by sliding the pin toward the negative symbol on the
camera, watch for the spring. reassemble in the reverse order. when
putting the back on slip the usb jack into its hole and make sure that
it is not pushing against the inside of the case.

i just purchased a new cover for $33 from uscamera. part#omp vg4293. You will need a jewlers philips screw driver. Make sure you lay out screws where they came out. They're different. Looking at the bottom,Remove 1 screw under battery door. Two screws on bottom my mount. Open little door on left for mem card and remove 2 screws. Open little door on right side where cable goes, remove 2 screws. Then gently on end wher door goes, pull back cover back just enough to remove old door and reinstall new door. Press back together and install screws.
Right, this is the info that you need. To remove and replace the battery door you need to follow 15 steps in the correct order, they are:
Remove the two screws (above lens) that hold on the flash cover. Remove the flash cover Remove the three screws on the view finder cover Remove the view finder cover Remove the two screws on the side of the battery compartment Remove the two screws in the middle of the base of the camera Remove the sliding cover on the left hand side of the lens Remove the single screw on the left hand (curved) part of the camera case Remove the single screw on the bottom left hand side of the casing Remove the trim piece on the right of the camera next to the lens, the top has a sticky pad under it so will be difficult to lift up. Remove the screw behind the trim plate Remove the back casing
The flap should now be replaceable, if you do not feel comfortable with this then get a professional shop to do it.
remove two small phillips head screws next to battery compartment,,this will allow you to raise the camera case enough to insert the tabs from the new battery door cover,replace the screws,,,i just replaced mine not to difficult
I've got 16 of these cameras and had to replace the door on 3 of them. (I'm a teacher)
it is quite simple, but there are little tiny screws and some dexterity required! to replace the battery door, you need a super small screwdriver (I've used both an eyeglass size and the screwdriver that came with my son's tech deck!) . you'll have to unscrew all of the small screws that hold on the back of the camera. remember which screws go to which hole - because some are longer than others. once the screws are out, you'll have to gently pry off the cover. carefully - you dont want to crack the camera case. you'll also want to be careful not to touch the sensor, which will be exposed with the case off.
NEXT you;ll have to pry the little spring out of the battery door to actually remove the old door. you'll probably have to use a screw driver to pull the spring on the new door back enough to fit back into the holes. that's really all there is to it. replace the cover and the screws.
I have the 530, You have to remove the 6 screws holding the covers together. The back cover comes off in one piece, you also have to remove the front cover too (which is held with 2 inner screws, you better use a magnitized screwdriver) please use caution not to disturb the inner board and parts.
Then use a thumb tack to push the holding pin completely thru(watch the spring so not to lose it) remove old door replace with new door, remember to replace the spring before pushing the pin and door back in place.....
Good luck, this can be frustrating if you dont have the right tools, and patience!
I just replaced my battery door. You have to take every screw out of the camera. I used a philips eye glass screw driver. Then, pull the front and back covers apart carefully, its only plastic. There is a pin that holds the door to the rear cover. If you push the battery door button back and fourth the pin will start to show out the side of the camera. I pulled it out once it showed with small pair of needle nose pliers. Just reverse the procedure to install the new door.
If you're handy, you can replace it in about 3 minutes. Don't attempt it unless you're willing to risk tearing a thin flexible circuit under the rear cover. Looking at the camera from the rear, remove the screws on the right hand side ( 2 ? ) then the screws across the bottom - open the card door, remove the card, and wedge a knife blade between the front and rear cover halves - the card door will be loose with an attached spring coming free. No need to remove the rear housing completely, just enough to expose the tracks for the battery cover hinge. Remove the old door, noting the position of the opening spring at the hinge, by angling one hinge out first. Insert the new battery cover and the card door in reverse order.
