The battery door on mine broke in half! Will not close anymore. I contacted every repair company and they all said I had to contact Polaroid. I did, and they said they no longer make the model, so they don't have any spare parts in their warehouse. They said if I have my receipt (after 2 years) they might be able to do a used camera exchange. Now I'm worried that if I am able to find it, they will give me one that is in worse shape than mine Argh!

Battery door won't stay closed on Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S90 Digital Camera


The battery door latch is most likely damaged/broken. Try using a piece of duct tape to keep it closed. I've done this on several cameras with battery door latch issues & the doors stayed shut just fine.

How to change battery


Hi, try:


To install the battery:

Note: To open the battery door, you will need a paper clip or thin pen.

1. Take the paper clip and use the end to press down on the door latch.

2. Holding the latch down, push the battery door up.

3. The door will slide up and spring open, allowing you to access the batteries.

4. Place the battery into the compartment. Be sure to match the (-) on the

battery with the (-) inside the compartment.
5. Slide the battery cover to its original

Hi, I have a Sony DSC T70. The battery door for the camera doesnt close now as the latch just came sliding out and I am not able to fix it.... Do i have to replace the whole battery door for it and if...


Hi, With a battery door like that you can tape it shut, while not the most visually appeasing fix it is the cheapest. Your other option is to order a battery door for the camera, http://www.ownta.com/sony-dsc-t70-camera-repairing-battery-door-battery-cover-replacement.html has it for $45, or you can contact Sony and order one directly from him. The only thing I'll caution you about with replacing the battery door is that you do have to disassemble the entire camera to install it.

My battery door is broken I have to put a rubber band around it to hold the batteries where can I find the battery door


Battery doors are almost impossible to find online. I'd contact Fuji by telephone to see if they retail themselves, if not, i'd try and use the broken battery door to somehow replace the elastic band.

KODAK doesn't sell battery doors for any of their models.
A repair for this fault is 24,47 pounds + shipping to the repair centre.
If you already have the battery door; I suggest you will have a local camera TECH to attach the door to the unit.

Battery door latch broken


Unfortunately HP will not sell you a camera battery door. If you can find another camera that is broken with a good battery door you may have a chance.

To repair/transfer the new battery door, you will have to use a small jewerly store screw driver that you can buy at the dollar store and use it to push the door hinge bar to one side of the camera.

Then, pull the door hinge out but be careful not to lose the tiny spring that is installed in between the hinges. ( Make sure that you know and understand how to put it back the same way.) You can then pull the battery door from the camera.

Do the same thing to good camera. Practice on the broken camera first. The second time it should go easier for you. When you install the new battery door, push the hinge bar in all the way to one side of the camera. Hold the door to give you the proper alignment and then use the small screw driver to pry the hindge bar from the one side to make sure that it is equally in each of the black hinge connectors.

This worked for me. I was fortunate enough to find someone who had a broken HP MZ67 digital camera that had a "good" battery door. It took me about 30 minutes to complete the job. I hope this will help you. You can email me if you need more advice. I am a computer tech.

Battery door doesn't close tight


Usually part of the plastic battery door breaks off so the sliding latch (when you push the battery door in toward the camera after replacing batteries) can't latch. If this is the problem you can buy a new battery door that will come with a new latch that isn't broken.

Sony Cyber-Shot Battery Compartment Door Broken


I'm having the same problem with my DSC-W1 camera. I dropped my camera and the battery door latches broke.
I found a replacement door on Ebay for $9.95
I followed the instructions in the description and easily removed the broken door from my camera. Now i'm just waiting on the new door to arrive so I could slide the new door in.
I hope this was helpful.

Here's the seller I bought the door from. Hopefully the seller has more doors. =) :
