Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera

SOURCE: Sony cyber-shot DSC-S500
If you open the camera up, whick I know is an intricate task, and take the screen down but don't unplug it, at the right bottom their is something that resembles a watch battery, if you can figure out how to get it off and find a replacement it will be fixed... This battery serves a a sort of memory power, even though you have batteries, this battery keeps the memory for the camera's software, so inturn without it the camera is dead in the water. this is fixable!

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! =)

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.
