Tape is the only answer. There will not be spares available. or look out for a similar model that is bust in some other way.

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 can't keep the battery door cover closed on my Nikon coolpix digital camera L.22


I see this message at least 3 times, so it must be important.
Looks like a mechanical problem. But not having the camera in my own hands I have to do some educated guesses.
Could be something broke off. Could be a small chip of plastic or a very small piece of metal. Difficult to repair it yourself. But you also could look if there is something in the battery compartment that should not be there. Could be just a little bit of debris, that is lifting the battery, (not if the battery is behind the lock) or debris in the door, so you can't close the battery compartment complete, and it can't be locked.
If you can't find anything and it looks as if the battery compartment closes correct, and still you only can't lock the door, please visit your dealer or the Nikon service centre closest to you.

The door that keeps the batteries and memory card will not stay closed. Can it be fixed?


Mine is broken also. There are 2 tabs in the cover and 2 raised slots on the camera body. When you open the battery compartment, you are supposed to slide the lid forward releasing the tabs from the slots, before the cover pops open. If you don't do this, you ~will~ break the tabs (or the raised slots). Well someone who didn't know this got a hold of my camera tried to force the compartment door open, breaking the raised slots that are part of the camera body.
Take a close look at yours and figure out how this latch is supposed to work and then see which part is broken. If it's the tabs on the door you can buy a replacement door online (do a search) and have someone good with electronics install it. (requires soldering). If (like me) it's the slots on the camera body that are broken, then it's not repairable. The original parts are too small and flimsy to be repaired (designed to fail). My best idea is to find some other way to latch the door closed. I've tried a velcro strap but it doesn't hold the lid tight enough and I've looked in hardware and craft stores for some kind of latch that might work, if I could atach it to the outside of the door somehow, but haven't found anything suitable (it would have to be small but sturdy and attach to the thin plastic of the door)
I'm thinking of taking it to a jeweler because they work with very small parts and might have something that could be screwed into the plastic door and camera body.
If you know of a better fix, please let me know.

Broken cover on a Fuji FinePix S5000


I think it will stay closed with painters tape or gaffer tape. this type of tape is blue or black. it is strong but not super sticky. I also have the same camera. my battery cover broke after the strap got stuck on a door handle to my office and the door kinda crunched it.

Battery door no longer locks to stay closed. olympus camedia c-720


You either find a replacement door or simply use a small amount of sticky tag to both corners of the door frame where the card door closes on to. Don't put too much, just enough to hold it shut after pressing down slightly. No adhesive tapes, as they give a messy look and need to be replaced quite often.
Hope this experience of mine can help.

Battery door


The battery door on mine broke in half! Will not close anymore. I contacted every repair company and they all said I had to contact Polaroid. I did, and they said they no longer make the model, so they don't have any spare parts in their warehouse. They said if I have my receipt (after 2 years) they might be able to do a used camera exchange. Now I'm worried that if I am able to find it, they will give me one that is in worse shape than mine Argh!

I need a new door for this camera


On Ebay or the internet search for your model.
Usually the price is about $15.00 plus ship.
