I have the same problem. In the interim I have used a small piece of aluminum foil for each battery.
Did you find a place to get replacement spring?

My Coolpix S6100 battery latch broke. Can I get a replacement?

As of Sept 2 2016 there are several for sale on eBay, for about 7 dollars to about 12 dollars.
Search for "battery door", not battery latch.

Battery door metall batterry connectors fell out

When you can't close the battery door as it should be closed, you can't turn on the camera. In almost all digital cameras there is a protection switch, that prevents the camera to work, with an open battery door, because the camera could stop any moment when the battery comes loose. When the camera was accessing the memory, when it falls without power, the memory can be damaged and you could loose all the pictures saved on the memory card.
I'm afraid, when the battery door came out, some things are missing, like a spring, axel and perhaps some other little metal or plastic things. To come out, some mechanical damage must be there, so it won't be easy to reinstall the door yourself.
Bet thing you can do is show it in a service centre and ask if it can be repaired and what it will cost.
Service manuals, with pictures about all parts, are only sold to approved repair centres.
The only chance to find anything, is on ifixit dot com, because they have manuals and videos of lots of electronic stuff for free.
Repair over there is on your own risk.

Hi, I have a canon A630power shot, for overa week now i cannot get it to power on but it never comes on.How cani fix this

Take a blade screwdriver and rub the end of it on the contact surfaces of the battery termanels In the lower end of the battery hole use a flashlight if needed. then visualy place the batteries in the battery holes making sure they extend high enough to create contact with the cover if not gently pry up the lower terminals to create this effect. now make sure the upper battery contacts are clean by rubbing them with the screw driver end then make sure they extend above the plactic in them if not bend them so as to have a good spring pressure on the batteries. then try turning on camera, the high amps needed to turn the camera on will cause a minute arc that then is a open cicuit and not allow camera to turn on, also the open and closing of battery door for the sd card will cause tension to be lost in the contacts. don't be afraid if you have to really push the door down to close. Hope this works for you.

I dropped my camera and the "card/battery" cover fell off of my camera, I got it back on, but now my camera wont turn on, I cant view pictures or anything, its just dead, The battery is fully charged. Any...

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. As you mentioned the door fell off, would recommend focusing your attention on inspecting the door switch and the plastic nib that pushes in on it. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

My Canon A510 batteries die out at a very fast rate after recharging. They are Ni-Mh batteries. Could this be a camera problem? I have purchased new batteries in the past and the problem still exists.

See the following advisory for the Canon A530/A540. Pay close attention to the exposed battery door spring in the picture. The A510 has a similar possibility of the spring slipping out from under the plate, thus shorting the batteries. If it did, you can easily fix it by removing the three screws on the plate, and readjusting the plate so that the spring is again underneath the plate where it belongs. Or use a small piece of tape between the plate and spring to prevent it from shorting on the plate.

If the spring is NOT exposed, how old are your NiMH batteries? They really aren't meant to last more than a year or two. Also, Alkaline batteries are just eaten alive by the A510, so don't recommend using them as a benchmark to judge performance.
