Nikon d3100 how to unlocked my memory card

I do not have a D3100, but if it is like other Nikons, you slide the memory card door open (located on right side of the camera body). You will see the edge of the memory card. The retaining mechanism is spring loaded. Push in on the edge of the card and it should release the card which will spring outward. Now just pull the card out. There should be no resistance. To replace the card, open the door; face the card with the label toward you and with the copper contacts on the left side facing away from you. Push the card inward until it clicks into place and close the door.

Back of camera will not close looks like small piece of plastic has broken

Yes, the film door was always a problem on these. The entire door was usually replace since it was one piece with the latch.

I do not believe that Nikon supplies the part any more. You can check eBay for a dead camera, or possibly a new /used door.

The other option is a repair kit available from

Broken latch on camera back

An authorized Nikon dealer should be able to order the back for you. If there's no dealer in your area, Nikon's service center info is on their web site. There's currently one new back on eBay for US $98..95 from a Canadian seller with good feedback. My only other suggestion is the old joke about pros. How can you tell if a photographer is a real pro? His camera has gaff instead of duct tape.
