Question about HP Photosmart 850 Digital Camera
Can the battery door be fixed?
To my knowledge, the HP > Photosmart 850 Digital Camera uses a relatively simple battery door. Your options then would be:
1. If the camera is still in warranty go to the HP service and they should replace it to you;
2. seek the part and services of an authorized service center as they would be in a better position to perform the needed work involve as well as sourcing for the replacment battery door;
3. try third party parts supply store specializing in replacement body parts for digital cameras. you can start here;
4. search eBay for as-is/defective units of similar make and model and purchase it to remove the part needed (of course must make sure that that part is intact).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

You might have put camera with some duct tape and a paper clip and fixed that battery door yourself. Not good as new, but functional. As long as you hold a glimmer of hope and are standing on principle, you'll probably not even try.
Or they could have just replaced the battery door (probably cost about 20.00 and I would have probably purchased about $3,000 worth of stereo equipment from them) but they can not see past the fact of CANT DO.
Oh, by the way, the door falling off. That is covered under the warranty.
Hope that helps.......

SOURCE: battery door latch broken
Is it the battery door? or the small plastic post thats broken. There should be four of them. When you slide the latch there are little metal things that slide into place which secures the door. If one is broken I dont think there is much you can do HP no longer can fix these. If its just the door you may have a chance at fixing it as Steve was saying. Good Luck But check the posts to see if its them..
