    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.

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.

How to remove Canon A570is broken battery door


I had the same problem and found nothing online to fix it so based on what little I could find and some common sense I got it done fairly easily. Here's what I did...if you need more detail on any step either re-read it to see if you missed something or let me know 'cause maybe I missed something.

Standard warning - you are dealing with small screws, small parts and things that might break. If you damage your camera trying this repair - please don't blame me! <G>

1) remove batteries and memory card
2) carefully remove screws around the outside.
There are: 3 on the bottom, 1 under the plastic usb cover on the left side, 3 on the right side. Once those are out, remove the clip that holds the wrist strap and you'll find 1 more on the top of the camera under the wrist strap clip.
3) starting at the bottom of the camera, gently separate the back cover from the camera body. YOU DON'T NEED TO TOTALLY REMOVE THE COVER!
4) (note the small spring on the battery hatch - when you complete the next step that spring will come out so look at where it is, which way it is and don't lose it!) While holding the cover and camera body apart slightly, use a pair of fine needlenose pliers or possibly tweezers & slide the pin that holds the hatch in place toward the back of the camera until the spring and door come off. You don't need to totally remove the pin.
5) take your new door assembly and put it in place. the fun part is the little spring - the shorter end of it has to go through a small hole at the back of the hinge area, the longer end puts pressure against the hatch. Once the spring is in place, hold it there and slide the pin back into place (I found that just allowing the cover and body to come back together moved it into place).
6) try the hatch to make sure it opens/closes freely and latches
7) put the screws back in place - note that one of them is shorter than all the others - that one goes on the top of the camera under the wrist strap clip

Hope this helps!

Please note - this is the only digital I've taken apart so I'm not likely to be able to help with other makes and models but feel free to ask!

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.
