    I have the same problem the little plastic tabs have broken off so it does still shut but on just. It does seem to be a very weak feature,although my 7 yr old has admitted to dropping it!I am going to go to the specialist camera shop today where we bought it to see what they can suggest.

The door that keeps the batteries and memory card will not stay closed. Can it be fixed?


Mine is broken also. There are 2 tabs in the cover and 2 raised slots on the camera body. When you open the battery compartment, you are supposed to slide the lid forward releasing the tabs from the slots, before the cover pops open. If you don't do this, you ~will~ break the tabs (or the raised slots). Well someone who didn't know this got a hold of my camera tried to force the compartment door open, breaking the raised slots that are part of the camera body.
Take a close look at yours and figure out how this latch is supposed to work and then see which part is broken. If it's the tabs on the door you can buy a replacement door online (do a search) and have someone good with electronics install it. (requires soldering). If (like me) it's the slots on the camera body that are broken, then it's not repairable. The original parts are too small and flimsy to be repaired (designed to fail). My best idea is to find some other way to latch the door closed. I've tried a velcro strap but it doesn't hold the lid tight enough and I've looked in hardware and craft stores for some kind of latch that might work, if I could atach it to the outside of the door somehow, but haven't found anything suitable (it would have to be small but sturdy and attach to the thin plastic of the door)
I'm thinking of taking it to a jeweler because they work with very small parts and might have something that could be screwed into the plastic door and camera body.
If you know of a better fix, please let me know.

I can't get the power button to stay on and the camara keeps shut


Hi,
Battery lid will be replaced as its tabs could be broken that hold and lock it in its place. I'm talking about Sony DSC-S500 camera.
It can be replaced easily, let me know if you need part number info.
Thanks.

Broken orange battery tab


Contact Pentax and see if they will send you the part, for the tab + S/H it should cost you approximately $25, although I have recently heard they will not provide these items to customers anymore. If they're no longer providing replacements, your device will need to be sent to them for repair (approximately $70 incl labour).
Or... Get a piece of tape and place it over the battery and close the casing, other "ghetto rig solutions" include folding a piece of paper, placing it atop the battery (between the battery and the closing cover) and closing the flap, the paper will hold the battery against the pins and allow function.

Will not power up. was intermittent...now nothing when power turned on.


If it is still in warranty, it is better to send it for repair with canon or with the extended warranty company.

If it's not in warranty, then you have to send it for diagnostics and repair.

The reason for won't power on may be a number of reasons:

1. Damaged switch that senses when the battery door is closed (or a broken tab in the battery door that presses the switch);
2. Damaged switch that senses when the CF memory door is closed (or a broken tab in the memory door that presses the switch);
3. Defective DC/DC power board;
4. Defective main board

Diagnosctis and repair of this problem requires a repairman with skills and tools to do it properly.

Depending of what is broken and to whom you send your camera for repair, the repair cost may be in in the range of $100.00 - $200.00.

Broken part on camera


I suspect you won't be able to buy the part. However, you might be able to fashion a suitable piece of plastic and glue it in place using an expoy resin adhesive like araldite. Or use gaffer tape to hold it shut! Samsung may be willing to repair it but it'll probably cost you.
