Your camera needs to be sent in for service. I would advise calling Canon for free tech support.

I can't keep the battery door cover closed on my Nikon coolpix digital camera L.22


I see this message at least 3 times, so it must be important.
Looks like a mechanical problem. But not having the camera in my own hands I have to do some educated guesses.
Could be something broke off. Could be a small chip of plastic or a very small piece of metal. Difficult to repair it yourself. But you also could look if there is something in the battery compartment that should not be there. Could be just a little bit of debris, that is lifting the battery, (not if the battery is behind the lock) or debris in the door, so you can't close the battery compartment complete, and it can't be locked.
If you can't find anything and it looks as if the battery compartment closes correct, and still you only can't lock the door, please visit your dealer or the Nikon service centre closest to you.

I dropped my nikon coolpix l14 camera and the part that keeps the battery compartment closed chipped, so now the battery compartment will not shut by itself and needs to be held by a rubber band.


I did the same thing and decided to try and fix it myself. Here are the steps to follow after you acquire the new door, which is available online through Boca Photo for about $16 plus shipping.

On the bottom of the camera remove the three small screws and the one bottom screw on the side (left corner) of the camera. With these four screws removed you then gently pry the camera apart at the seam so it opens about 1/8". Then pull the battery door up and you'll see the steel pin the door pivots on. Pull the door and pin up and out and then slide the steel pin into the new door and reverse all the steps.

Battery life does not last.


The rechargeable battery has come to the end of its life. You'll need to replace the battery and let the new battery go through a complete charge cycle before using.

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 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.

Maintain all-weather capability


The camera loses its weatherproof capability if the battery compartment cover, connector cover or DC-IN jack cover is open. Make sure that all the covers are closed before using the camera. Wipe any water off the camera before changing the battery or card. If the camera gets splashed, wipe the water off as soon as possible with a dry cloth. Salt-water spray or droplets can cause damage to the camera if the camera is not wiped dry as soon as possible. Do not apply excessive force to or attempt to peel off the rubber packing of the battery compartment cover, connector cover or DC-IN jack cover. If the rubber packing becomes worn or damaged, contact your nearest Olympus service center. If the rubber packing of the battery compartment cover, connector cover or DC-IN jack cover contains dirt or sand, wipe it off before closing the cover. The rechargeable battery and other camera accessories are not weatherproof. Care should be taken when using the accessories.
