Question about Olympus FE-130 Digital Camera
Nothing seems broken. Maybe oversprung mechanism? Olympus wants flat fee of $73 to fix. Is there a cheaper option?
Look on Ebay. Battery doors for most cameras sell for from $10.00 to less than $20.00 with shipping.
It sounds like the metal is oversprung as you mentioned. The way to fix that would be to remove the door by carefully using a small screwdriver (either phillips or flat, depending on the model) ... some cameras have screws which hold the door together with some small parts including springs, others can be removed by carefully prying the metal holders away to allow the door cover to slide off. When that is done, then you should be able to see the problem with the bent metal, if that is what it is, and proceed to level out the bent areas by bending to the way which is necessary.
