This happened to me and I took it into a dealer and he simply taped the battery door closed very firmly so that the batteries made contact. They are not making contact now. I thought it was sort of weird, but he said a new battery door would cost as much as a new camera!

The door of sony cyber-shot DSC-S500 which keeps battery and memory card does not close properly.How can it be fixed


Yes, It can be fixed if your good hands on Exp. However, When the camera hit the floor did it dent the lip/edge surrounding the batter door. If so it may not be fixable, and you may be better of getting a new one, there cheap enough! Let me know the cond. post a picture.

Hi.

The drop has cause internal damage to the moving parts of the camera. The shock of the camera hitting the floor will have caused this.

The cost of the repair will differ depending on the damage caused by the drop.

You can get a quote directly from Sony by clicking on the link below or you can take the camera to a certified repair store.

Dropped SD750 on floor, now won't turn on


That's a hard one to analyze through email. A camera tech would have to use test equipment on it to see if the power section got shorted when the door opened when it hit the floor. It may not be a cheap or easy fix, but only a tech can tell. I have heard of cameras getting damaged, just from putting batteries in backwards, so a short circuit might have damaged a chip inside. Of course a warranty does not cover dropped cameras, but you might want to have them look at it and tell you what it will cost.

Little bit on battery cover broken. So won't close!!!


Those parts are not easily attainable. You will need to send it in for servicing. You could also buy a parts camera and try a DIY repair, but that may void the warranty.

Camera will not turn on sucessfully. Says "Turn Off and On Again"


This is not an elegant solution, but it seems to be working. (I might have read some one else mentioning it for another brand of Samsung camera). I hit the end of the camera where the attachment to the computer gets plugged in against the palm of my hand pretty hard about 6 times. Then I tried it and it worked! There is some logic there since it started having the problem right after I put it down on a soft surface from about three feet.(Ididn't really drop it, but tossed it there - gently, I thought - because my hands were full and I was starting to lose everything). In the future I will treat the camera a little more gently knowing that mechanism is somewhat easily knocked out of adjustment.

Camera won't turn on


Fixed! Several people I've described the problem to asked me if I dropped the camera, and I honestly did not remember dropping it, but I could've just forgot that it happened. Later, (after this was posted) it slipped out of my hand and fell to the carpeted floor. When I picked it up, I noticed that the lens shutter had moved (to be closer together). I turned it on, and after a few automatic adjustments, the camera was working like normal again! Perhaps the same thing that broke it, fixed it!

My Canon digital Camera won't turn on


I assume you've already gone thru the obvious check and proposed fixes covered in the user manual (battery replacement, contact cleaning, etc). I did all that to no avail after dropping it about 1m onto a concrete floor last nite - after which it refused to power up.

There was no obvious mechanical damage other than a ding on the
rear corner of the battery box door. After disassembly, seeking interior damage, I found a deformed piece of plastic near the door
latch strike that was preventing the door closure switch next to the "MENU" button from fully operating. Some careful tweaking and making a note to push the latch fully closed after use fixed it.

This switch must be operated (opened) in order for the camera to
run. You can verify this on a working A570 by pulling the door latch
partway open, while keeping the door closed by hand, and trying
to power up.
