Fuji S5000 camera problem....The battery door will not latch because the cheap plastic retaining nipples inside the battery box have worn down/or broken. Tape will not even hold door closed!

Can a person use machine screws and latches or what??? (Velcro?...probably like tape that won't hold)

I have a Panasonic AJD 250P DVCPRO VTR (Recorder/Player), that was used less than 100 hours from 2000-2002. It sat for the next 8 years in a computer room unused. I ordered a new mini DVCPRO tape and tried it out again.

I am unable to locate the installation CD I had with the PV-GS13 camcorder I purchased quite a few year ago. The serial number is G4IA12045.
