yep, happens to most all of them eventually. mine has broken twice. i had it repaired at the camera shop and the next time i put in new batteries it broke again. i'm sticking to a piece of tape. i've seen you can buy the replacement door online and i've seen the instructions for replacing it yourself via a google search.
I have an S610 that would sometimes not turn on or randomly turn off. I bought a replacement battery to see if that was the problem but no change. I noticed that if I firmly pressed the battery compartment lid the camera would operate fine, but wiggling the lid would make the camera turn off. I discovered there is a small lever inside the battery compartment that the lid depresses. So my solution was to attach something to the small plastic tab on the lid to help it depress the lever.
If you can't return the camera for service, my advice would be to close the battery compartment with tape. Not pretty but better than buying a new camera, I've done it a few times on old cameras and apart from cosmetics, works fine. Just make sure to use enough tape so the batteries won't fly out when using it.
Hi,the problem you are encountering is definately a power problem which is possibly from a broken little switch under the battery lid.Here is the solution;
1.Check the little switch beneath the battery lid,it might be missing or broken,if it's broken you have to solder it bact to its place with the help or a soldering iron,if its missing you have to purchase another one from a part shop.
2.A temporary solution(maybe permanent),you can jump a tiny connecting wire on the switch,which makes it on a constant on status. NOTE;by doing so,you won't have the battery lid detect function.The camera can be turned on even when the battery lid is open.
Hi, Battery Compartment with lock of DSC-T70 is single part and can be order under following part number.. X-2186-609-1 ASSY, BTH (B) (BLACK) I'm afraid I do not have info about parts shops in UK so please check with nearest Sony Service Center for that part. Thanks.

The same thing happened to me this week. I called Canon Canada directly and asked to order the part (The battery compartment door).
They gave me a phone number to call and I was able to order the replacement door for about $8.00 + $10-$12 shipping. Hope this helps!
you could but the cost and time would not be worth it,just find you some gray electrical tape,works wonders,but make sure you press down real firm while putting a good solid peace on ok. good luck hope i helped.
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. =) :
