    My camera still works great and takes good pictures but my battery door that slides across the batteries broke. Now I use it with a piece of duct tape to hold everything in and I still have to use my thumb to add pressure. Is there someone out there that has a parts camera or avenue to purchase one at a reasonable price? The Polaroid official site wants $20.00 but I'm not sure I want to spend that much just for the door when the camera is now available to $75-$90.

    I push the battery in and add a little piece of paper to make sure that it stays "connected". It still drains quickly as it must not have a solid connection.

I just bought one from Kodak, more expensive with the shipping than those available on ebay. No instructions however, so now I have no clue as to how to replace the cover...

Use electrical tape for holding the door or you need to visit service center for replacing the complete door.

I have a CANON camera A610 - since i changed the batteries it is not powering. The batteries are new. Please advise the possible problem


Double check that the new batteries are actually good. Note that so-called "heavy duty" batteries are terrible for use in digital cameras.
Next thing to check is the battery door slide switch. This is a tiny black micro-switch in the the battery compartment. It's activated by a tiny plastic piece on the battery door slide mechanism that may have broken off.

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.

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.

Stuck battery/ScanDisk card


Unfortunately, you have to force the battery door (very carefully) to open it, and find what is wrong with it.

It is more likely that when closed the battery door, it was forced and it slided out of one guide channels.

You need to practice a little bit before to try it with force (genlty but with firm force), but the only way to do it is slide the button to open it, and at the same time slide to the side and pull the battery door, everything at the same time. Try it until you are able to open it.

Using any kind of tool (such a plastic pry tool, a small screwdriver, etc) to force will leave marks in the housing, and it's very possible that the plastic locking tabs will break, causing that you will open it, but unable to close properly again.

Best regards,

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.

Battery door broken


You're making it harder than it has to be. Simply hold the camera in your left hand, and open the battery door so it is standing up. Look closely at the lower left corner of the batterry door. Notice the notch shape. The door plastic door is locked in place by the mating little "L" shape on the hinged door of your camera. Thats all that keeps it from sliding off when you put in batteries. Simply insert a small screwdriver or knife blade in that slot, twist it counterclockwise to push the battery door lock to the left, and slide the door off with no force at all. It's a snap.
