If the plastic battery door latch is broken (the most common cause) the latch is obtainable for under $9 but professional labor would be more than the camera is worth (probably about $35 to $55). Instructions are available for a do it yourself installation, but it does involve disassembly and reassembly of the camera. ( takes about 40 minutes) Although the procedure is not extemely difficult, if you have no experience in working with small electronic devices the chance of damaging the internal camera workings is rather high.
