Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera
The prongs on my battery flap are breaking off on my vivitar 530 dvr 5.0 megapix camera
It sounds like you need a new battery and/or battery charger. I had the same problem with a simular camera before and just replaced both the charger and the battery because I wasn't sure which one of them was faulty. I haven't had a problem since then. I bought them from the website www.needbattery.com the company guaranteed thier batteries for a year and thier price was the cheapest on and off the internet that I could find. They have both batteries and chargers for your specific camera. This should take care of your problem. Hope this helps

Often the prongs on the battery flap (cover) are not wired to anything inside the camera and are simply a way of interconnecting the batteries to each other.
If they need to be replaced, you of course can try getting them from the manufacturer or have a qualified professional do it for you.
Alternately, if you would like to try a makeshift/DIY/workaround, you can try:
1. getting similar prongs from battery powered toys, old/defective remote controls or any other to be discarded electronic devices that uses batteries; or not so technically correct
2. fashion one from a metal type folder/paper fastener;
3. fashion one from a folded thin or aluminum foil.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
