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.

My Sony cyber-shot DSC-S500 the cover for the battery compartment will not close completely...and even when I hold it closed the camera fails to come on every time


This problem can be caused by the batteries installed incorrectly. The battery closest to the outside edge of the camera should have the "+" button down and the inside battery should have the "+" button up.

The opening for the batteries is broken.


The 4 latches that the battery door locks onto is broke, you will need a different back cover and front cover.

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. =) :
