What camera is it ??
Due to the frequency of changing batteries on my camera, I have 'dremelled' a very fin pin hole through teh side of the case, and into the battery holder.
Then opened the case hole up to accept a small screw, then allowed the scre to tap itself into the battery housing.
Small phillips screw nice and flush on the case now.
Works for me, and could save you money and tape !!

The battery door on my hp photosmart M525 cracked and will not stay shut, therefore batteries fall out. I used a piece of tape keep the door shut, but it is a nice camera and I want it to work the way it...


Okay, from what you are saying its the weight of the battery that makes the battery cover fall of so i would apply a little, emphasis on little bit of glue before i put in the battery to hold the battery in place so the battery stays in even when the cover is not in place, then find a more stylish way of keeping the cover in place, maybe A LITTLE glue to the ridges that the cover slides on will be enough, you wont have any problem prying both lose when you have to, A LITTLE, lol , Hope this helps..

Battery cover will not close when batteries are


The cover will close.

First, remove the batteries and try to close the latch.
Please "add comment" to let us know that it can close without batteries.
If it cannot close and latch, then the cover is broken.... can't fix here.

If you can close and latch it w/o batteries, then:
If you are using rechargeable batteries, they might be slightly bigger than alkaline batteries.

Put one alkaline battery in the camera and try to close and latch it. You may now know the "tricky" maneuver you have to do in order to close it with the batteries installed. Now try two batteries, etc. until you can maneuver all batteries.

I think this will work for you.

Broken Battery cover.


the easiest solution would be to just tape the cover a little bit or just tape it together because im not sure you can just buy a battery cover.

Broken battery latch cover


no, is not practical to repair. you can do bigger mass what is now. only what you can do is secure cover with self-adhesive tape. if you not satisfied with this, go to service and pay repair.

Sony Cyber-Shot Battery Compartment Door Broken


I'm having the same problem with my DSC-W1 camera. I dropped my camera and the battery door latches broke.
I found a replacement door on Ebay for $9.95
I followed the instructions in the description and easily removed the broken door from my camera. Now i'm just waiting on the new door to arrive so I could slide the new door in.
I hope this was helpful.

Here's the seller I bought the door from. Hopefully the seller has more doors. =) :
