Hi,

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..

My nikon l20 bettery door is broken how can i fix this easily at home?


Hello Xavier,

You can repair the battery door of Nikon Coolpix L20 by using any adhesive. Please carefully apply the adhesive while repairing the battery door. If this will not works then you have to contact the service center for new battery door spare part.

Unfortunately HP will not sell you a camera battery door. If you can find another camera that is broken with a good battery door you may have a chance.

To repair/transfer the new battery door, you will have to use a small jewerly store screw driver that you can buy at the dollar store and use it to push the door hinge bar to one side of the camera.

Then, pull the door hinge out but be careful not to lose the tiny spring that is installed in between the hinges. ( Make sure that you know and understand how to put it back the same way.) You can then pull the battery door from the camera.

Do the same thing to good camera. Practice on the broken camera first. The second time it should go easier for you. When you install the new battery door, push the hinge bar in all the way to one side of the camera. Hold the door to give you the proper alignment and then use the small screw driver to pry the hindge bar from the one side to make sure that it is equally in each of the black hinge connectors.

This worked for me. I was fortunate enough to find someone who had a broken HP MZ67 digital camera that had a "good" battery door. It took me about 30 minutes to complete the job. I hope this will help you. You can email me if you need more advice. I am a computer tech.

Battery Door Broken


So far, I was able to find a camera like mine on Ebay that was being sold cheap for parts only, because the LCD was broken. I figure that this amounts to probably what I'd be paying if Kodak offered to sell me a replacement battery door (which they do not). Kodak only considers the wrist strap a "user-serviceable item." Maybe so, but I intend to try to fix this myself. If anyone has done this successfully before, please write. Otherwise, will let you know how it goes.

Nikon Coolpix 2100/3100/3200 battery compartment door latch broken (again)


I just purchased a new battery door for $15 with shipping from nikon. They sent a simple assembly diagram and I was able to replace the door in 30 minutes. I used a dremel to cut the old door off, but you dont have to do that. I got a little impatient.

Just buy the plastic piece and u can reuse the metal parts for your old battery door.
