Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera
Insert batteries. Close battery compartment door. Secure door with small plate held by 1/4" NC round head screw in the tripod mount. With a bit more effort one could mount a detachable handle at that location as well. Such a handle provides a more stable camera which is easier to use and is less likely to be dropped.
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. =) :
In addtion, I found the last two posts on this forum very helpful:
Good Luck! =)
