Sadly repairing the battery door tab would require you to replace the whole door. If your warranty is still up, contact the customer service of the camera and ask for a repair. If it's up, you're just going to have to get some tape and tape it shut.

When the engine is running the door open indicator on the dash shows a door open, thus when the engine is off the dome light stays on, what could cause this?


On the doors, and in some vehicles the trunk, there is a pushrod style tab similar to a fridge door. When the door is closed, it pushes the tab in, and shuts off the light. Vice versa when one of the tabs is fully extended the light turns on. Check all your doors for the tabs and see if any of them are broken. If they are, then you can solve this by using something to push into the cavity and shutting off the light. Without replacing the broken parts, you could use a small wooden dowel rod in it's place for a temporary fix.

Alternatively, there should be a toggle switch on the dome light that allows you to choose whether the light is on, comes on when the doors are opened, or remain off. It would be just as simple to switch it to 'off' provided you don't rely on it too heavily.

Battery door won't stay closed on Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S90 Digital Camera


The battery door latch is most likely damaged/broken. Try using a piece of duct tape to keep it closed. I've done this on several cameras with battery door latch issues & the doors stayed shut just fine.

I dropped my Nikon Coolpix L1 camera and cracked the battery door. Now whenever I take a picture, I have to hold the battery door manually so it will stay shut and recognize the power of the battery. I'm...


So other than the broken battery door (very common) it works just fine?

Well you could go and spend a fortune on another camera. Or you might decide that a few cents worth of sticky tape to hold the door closed is far better value.

I've fixed the same fault on similar Nikon models before by fashioning replacements for the broken plastic tab/loops using shaped short lengths of paper clip wire glued into carefully filed channels using epoxy resin (the designs vary, but Nikon keep making them of plastics with all the structural integrity of cheese!). Doing it that way makes a far neater and original-looking job of it and restores normal functionality.

Fuel tank door release is broken , how do i fix,door wont stay shut. the piece that holds door shut is not there anymore.


More likely you will have to replace the fuel lid release cable if the tab is broke off
part number is 55030119 list price is $67.80
if you do it your self your looking at 2 hours to install. the interior panels on the drivers side will have to be removed to access the cable..
Hope this helps

I can't get the power button to stay on and the camara keeps shut


Hi,
Battery lid will be replaced as its tabs could be broken that hold and lock it in its place. I'm talking about Sony DSC-S500 camera.
It can be replaced easily, let me know if you need part number info.
Thanks.

Battery door latch broke off body of Canan A590


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!
