    My camera also has what appears to be the latching portion on the camera body also broken. Is it worth fixing, I was thinking of using velcro to hold it closed.

My Casio battery door is broken how do I replace it


If you have enough skills and tools to open a camera, and build it together again, first order a new battery door and all spare parts, needed to put the camera together. While opening a camera, it could be you have to remove glued parts.
If you can't buy a new door from Casio (I think they don't sell it to you if you are not a Casio certified repair centre), please don't even try to open the camera. On ifixit they show hoe to open electronic gear, but they never show how to put it together.
You can look (at your own risk) how they open camera's.Perhaps even yours is on the site too:

How to remove Canon A570is broken battery door


I had the same problem and found nothing online to fix it so based on what little I could find and some common sense I got it done fairly easily. Here's what I did...if you need more detail on any step either re-read it to see if you missed something or let me know 'cause maybe I missed something.

Standard warning - you are dealing with small screws, small parts and things that might break. If you damage your camera trying this repair - please don't blame me! <G>

1) remove batteries and memory card
2) carefully remove screws around the outside.
There are: 3 on the bottom, 1 under the plastic usb cover on the left side, 3 on the right side. Once those are out, remove the clip that holds the wrist strap and you'll find 1 more on the top of the camera under the wrist strap clip.
3) starting at the bottom of the camera, gently separate the back cover from the camera body. YOU DON'T NEED TO TOTALLY REMOVE THE COVER!
4) (note the small spring on the battery hatch - when you complete the next step that spring will come out so look at where it is, which way it is and don't lose it!) While holding the cover and camera body apart slightly, use a pair of fine needlenose pliers or possibly tweezers & slide the pin that holds the hatch in place toward the back of the camera until the spring and door come off. You don't need to totally remove the pin.
5) take your new door assembly and put it in place. the fun part is the little spring - the shorter end of it has to go through a small hole at the back of the hinge area, the longer end puts pressure against the hatch. Once the spring is in place, hold it there and slide the pin back into place (I found that just allowing the cover and body to come back together moved it into place).
6) try the hatch to make sure it opens/closes freely and latches
7) put the screws back in place - note that one of them is shorter than all the others - that one goes on the top of the camera under the wrist strap clip

Hope this helps!

Please note - this is the only digital I've taken apart so I'm not likely to be able to help with other makes and models but feel free to ask!

My batterry door is broken I don't know how to put


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.

Best place to find parts for cameras is on eBay. You can usually find cameras being sold for parts or repair only.

Replacing a battery cover


Hi!
I have the same problem with my camera. Mind telling me where you got a new battery cover? :-) I need one!
Maybe you have already found out how to replace the cover, but anyhow, here´s what I think:
I have looked closely at the cover and it seems like you should be able to just loosen the only screw on the inside of the cover and then you should be able to just slide the cover off and replace it with your new one. :-)
Hope this helps! :-)

Hello shrnj113:

Which door are you talking about?
If it is the lens slide cover, then it needs repair.
If it is the battery cover, then you need repair and parts.

Take care,

Battery door cover


Hi,
As a first call I would try visiting the smaller specialist camera shops that do repairs.
The manufacturers are starting to hide behind blanket 1 year warranties that only cover manufacturing defects. Basically if it works when you first use it - they won't help on anything else as it comes under "improper use" or "physical damage"
They are producing them cheaper than they can repair them, so, if you do return a genuine claim within a year - they send you a new one, and bin the old one.
They also charge high prices for repairs.

My personal advice is to watch Ebay for an identical model sold for spares. Just do a search,save it and they will email any matches to you.
Then just swap defective parts.
This is the cheapest option.

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. =) :

About battery door broken in Kodak CX7330


I've got 16 of these cameras and had to replace the door on 3 of them. (I'm a teacher)

it is quite simple, but there are little tiny screws and some dexterity required!
to replace the battery door, you need a super small screwdriver (I've used both an eyeglass size and the screwdriver that came with my son's tech deck!) . you'll have to unscrew all of the small screws that hold on the back of the camera. remember which screws go to which hole - because some are longer than others. once the screws are out, you'll have to gently pry off the cover. carefully - you dont want to crack the camera case. you'll also want to be careful not to touch the sensor, which will be exposed with the case off.

NEXT you;ll have to pry the little spring out of the battery door to actually remove the old door. you'll probably have to use a screw driver to pull the spring on the new door back enough to fit back into the holes. that's really all there is to it. replace the cover and the screws.
