Re: i need to purchase spare parts
This type of repair is best performed by a professional service technician. You will need to find someone who is authorized Fuji service in order for them to get the parts, as Fuji will not sell them directly to the general public. Sorry I cant offer anything better, bummer about the camera :(
a 6ya Expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to an Expert (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

This is a non essential part and does not have to be in place for the camera to operate properly. I would suspect that the part can be ordered through a Fujifinpix sales dealer. This little plastic cover on all my cameras is the first thing to be removed and lost.
Most fuji cameras use xD cards, I have had similar problems with my Fuji, and had to use a repair program to fix the issue. Once corrupt, no amount of coaxing will fix them. You can get the software at:
If you don't have any critical pictures, then buy a new xD card. But if you have important or sentimental photos buy the program from them. It works fantastic! Thanks for using Fixya!
The trick is remembering how you dis-assembled so you can re-assemble.
Purchase or borrow another camera and photograph each step.
Buy a plastic tray with little compartments in and start at 1 end and then work back when assembling.
service manuals from "Flying Dutchmen Plaza" on ebay will show you how to fix
THIS SOUNDS LIKE A MEMORY CARD PROBLEM. LOOK INTO THE SLOT WHERE THE CARD GOES AND CHECK THE PINS TO SEE IF THEY ARE ALL STRAIGHT AND EVEN. BE SURE THE CARD IS WELL SEATED WHEN YOU INSTALL IT AND THAT THE CARD ISN'T DAMAGED IN ANY WAY. TRY SWITCHING CARDS AND USE A DIFFERENT CARD TO SEE IF THIS STOPS THE PROBLEM. YOU CAN GET A CARD CHEAPLY ON EBAY OR AMAZON OR WAL-MART ETC. IT IS POSSIBLE THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE CARD THAT IS CAUSING THE MEMORY TO DROP. THIS IS USUALLY CAUSED BY SOME CHANGE IN CURRENT OR A SHORT. I WOULD TRY A DIFFERENT CARD. IT IS A EASY SOLUTION AND YOU CAN ALWAYS USE THE SPARE CARD. HOPE THIS HAS GIVEN YOU SOME HELP. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO ARCLIGHT1217. THANKS.
I have the same problem. I contacted Chicco customer services and they put me in touch with "Stork Talk" 0115 9306700 who proved replacement ones at 15 pounds including delivery, bit pricey I thought but I can't find any other provider!
You are correct
Camera spares are a joke - there are none
Do what you did before.
or use gaffer tape if the latch does not operate a 'Door open Switch'
If it does then ram a matching in to kid it is shut then gaffer tape it.
