Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera
One of the 2 tiny square pieces of plastic that hold the battery door cover shut broke off, I guess I need a new battery door cover but where can I purchase one and bring it to be fixed if I can't?
As a first call I would try visiting the smaller specialist camera shops that do repairs.
The manufacturers are starting to hide behind blanket 1 year warranties that only cover manufacturing defects. Basically if it works when you first use it - they won't help on anything else as it comes under "improper use" or "physical damage"
They are producing them cheaper than they can repair them, so, if you do return a genuine claim within a year - they send you a new one, and bin the old one.
They also charge high prices for repairs.
My personal advice is to watch Ebay for an identical model sold for spares. Just do a search,save it and they will email any matches to you.
Then just swap defective parts.
This is the cheapest option.
