The only way is to send it back to Garmin. They will not sell the part. I just folded a piece of aluminum foil and poked a hole in it and unscrewed the contact, placed the foil under the contact, screwed the contact back down and then folded the aluminum down so the battery end could contact it. .

Cybershot DSC-P200 broken battery/memory stick cover

I suggest that you contact Sony PAS to get the new Battery cover at 1-800-488-SONY (7669)

Phone Hours:
Monday to Friday - 8:00 am to 12 am (Midnight) ET
Saturday and Sunday - 9:00 am to 8:00 pm ET

Then, contact the nearest dealer to get the Battery door fixed instead of sending for service.
All you have to do is, press the pin on both the sides of the Battery door and insert in the hole available for battery door on camera.

No battery life

The problem you describe is frequently the result of dirty/corroded battery contacts in the camera. Try removing the batteries and cleaning the inside contacts with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. Remove any residue left from the cleaning, then replace the batteries. Hopefully all will be well.

If the cleaning doesn't work you might want to check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Battery connectors broke

Hey there NewYork691,

I'm from Long Island. The name is Mike and I may be able to give you a more economical solution.

From your description, it sounds like one of the contact that connect the (+) of one battery to the (-) of the next battery broke. If that's what happened, no worries, you'll be fixed in no time.

Find yourself a penlight, remote or any other device that uses AA batteries that you aren't going to miss. Open up the battery compartment and remove one of the spring contacts.

You may have to hunt around to find something similar, but all it has to do is fit in and make contact. The compartment cover will hold the batteries in.

You should be back in business.
