I had this same accident befall my Z1--
Simple fix: I bent a nice looking piece of Chrome plated rod.. (from an old grill that I had dismantled.) Bend them in a vise and hammer nice and square at the corners. Measure the exact distance, and make the bends marked at the vise edge-- It will be perfectly tight-- Holds the door closed equal to or better than then plastic latch..-- and slips on and off easily!
If you want a picture let me know-

Unfortunately, you can't get new spares. Your camera is an obsolete model and Sony (took over Konica Minolta) no longer support the model nor do they retain spare parts.

Your only option is to look on auction websites for a broken example, or to even ask on your local FreeCycle and Freegle groups. But if you do buy a spares donor make sure to ask whether the part you need is functional and present. After taking what you need you can try reselling what's left. I often find that by doing so I get virtually free spare parts.

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.

See if you can unscrew the battery door and find out exactly what the problem is.
Use the proper tools - screwdriver etc., etc. Check for any blockages - debris etc., etc. If the door is not broken you may just have to put it back on and tighten the screws that hold it closed.

Battery door and latch broken


Have used a 5-cent nylon cable tie for years on our CoolPix 990 and it never has failed, and still allows for battery changes. Looks a little funny to some, but is very functional. Don't know if your camera's design is similar enough for this to work, but it may worth trying.

Won't turn on


Try inspecting the battery contact points in the battery enclosure. Make sure to check the points deep in the well to make sure you have no corrosion in there. Just a little moisture can cause problems.

Also determine if the place it was stored was affected by heat of cold.

These are a couple of thoughts, maybe they will help.

How to replace battery cover for Kodak Dx6440


We had the same problem dropping the camera, and ordered a pair of new battery covers. I was able to install this by carefully removing the cover screws and slipping the pins into their slots. I am sure you probably got it by now.

This problem was before the one posted about start and then die. The "expert" response posted was worthless. This whole website seems to be a collection of anecdotal semi-worthless stuff.

Perhaps other topics may contain more relevant valuable commentary.

Battery compartment cover lug broken


OK this is a design flaw. If you fix it or have it fixed with Minolta/Cannon supplied parts, it will break again. I use gaffers tape which has left a nasty residue onn the camera body but keeps me shooting. love the camera, despise the battery cover.
