Remove batteries and memcard.
Remove 8 screws, the screws on the bottom are smaller than the side screws.
Rear cover will slide off, watch out for loose LCD screen.
Two protruding slots on the bottom hold the battery cover hinges.
Hold battery cover wide open and at an angle to snap hinges into place.
Reinstall rear cover and screws.

you should contact a lawyer to see if you can start a class action lawsuit. I had a problem with my toshiba laptop, and a few months later, I got a notice of a class action lawsuit, and got a 200 dollar check in the mail for a hinge defect in a laptop I used to own.
You need to march right back to Verizon and demand a new phone. If you do a search on the internet, there are multitudes of people with the exact same broken hinge problem. This is a design defect and should be replaced no questions asked. Verizon knows about this problem. I had my phone less than 6 months when my right hinge just broke...no dropping or other damage. I went in and they replaced it free of charge - because they knew about the problem. That was just a month ago and my right hinge broke again today...one month later. I am going to demand a new phone or they will be facing a class action law suit. Who ever told you this had to be filed with insurance and that you have to pay $50 did not know what they were talking about. Do what I am going to do and print off all of the complaints and present them to Verizon.
My hinge broke on my Sony VAIO and the solution I found was to purchase the Service Manual for the laptop then take the laptop apart and find out which part number the hinge was. Then purchase the hinge directly from USA, which took 1 week to come through and mended the laptop myself.
Sony are doing this to everyone who has problems with the hinges of the laptops as they state the guarantee covers everything EXCEPT the hinges. If you can get proof from a pc repair shop that the hinges are a design flaw then Sony will repair it free of charge, but they will still request a Diagnostic fee which will be refunded if the problem you described turns out to be true.
I've got 16 of these cameras and had to replace the door on 3 of them. (I'm a teacher)
it is quite simple, but there are little tiny screws and some dexterity required! to replace the battery door, you need a super small screwdriver (I've used both an eyeglass size and the screwdriver that came with my son's tech deck!) . you'll have to unscrew all of the small screws that hold on the back of the camera. remember which screws go to which hole - because some are longer than others. once the screws are out, you'll have to gently pry off the cover. carefully - you dont want to crack the camera case. you'll also want to be careful not to touch the sensor, which will be exposed with the case off.
NEXT you;ll have to pry the little spring out of the battery door to actually remove the old door. you'll probably have to use a screw driver to pull the spring on the new door back enough to fit back into the holes. that's really all there is to it. replace the cover and the screws.
