    Same problem-- Battery Compartment latch is broken- Haven't found a good solution yet.... except Ductape! UGH!

    little tab for door lock is broken off. I do not like duct tape either. I used some regular tape and then stuck a flat head thumb take through the tape into the catch mechanism on the camera body. It works just fine. Eventually I will use some melted plastic or fiberglass to rebuild that broken latch tab.

Can I replace the latch or change the full internal chamber?


sir,
this part is available with Nikon agency, to replace this you have to open the whole camera, then detach the front portion, it doesn't matter, just a piece of rubber or sponge fix on the battery lid, this will be help full to hold the battery at contact perfectly.

I dropped my Nikon Coolpix L1 camera and cracked the battery door. Now whenever I take a picture, I have to hold the battery door manually so it will stay shut and recognize the power of the battery. I'm...


So other than the broken battery door (very common) it works just fine?

Well you could go and spend a fortune on another camera. Or you might decide that a few cents worth of sticky tape to hold the door closed is far better value.

I've fixed the same fault on similar Nikon models before by fashioning replacements for the broken plastic tab/loops using shaped short lengths of paper clip wire glued into carefully filed channels using epoxy resin (the designs vary, but Nikon keep making them of plastics with all the structural integrity of cheese!). Doing it that way makes a far neater and original-looking job of it and restores normal functionality.

The little clip on the battery cover on my Nikon Coolpix 4300 has broken. I see I can buy a new one online, is it worth it?


Mine has broken as well. It appears this clip is just to keep the battery from falling out as you open the battery door. It will function perfectly fine without the clip. Just be careful not to drop the battery when you open the battery compartment.

Hope this helps,

Nikon Cool Pix 7900 Battery door won't stay closes


There are plastic clips on the battery door and body of the camera that lock the door in place. If they are broken of the battery door the door can be changed. If the clips on the body are broken the camera as a rule is history. Replacing a camera body is not a feasible repair.

Nikon 4500 latch will not hold door to storage card shut


1) No, the screws do not hold the hinge itself in place. the door hinge is integrated into the CF card reader. the screws hold in the reader.

2) no clue, sorry.

3) no recomendations, but there are lots of authorized nikon repair centers online.

good luck.

Nikon Coolpix 2100/3100/3200 battery compartment door latch broken (again)


I just purchased a new battery door for $15 with shipping from nikon. They sent a simple assembly diagram and I was able to replace the door in 30 minutes. I used a dremel to cut the old door off, but you dont have to do that. I got a little impatient.

Just buy the plastic piece and u can reuse the metal parts for your old battery door.
