Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera ?

Battery door latch broke off body of Canan A590

\015 One of the plastic tabs which hold the battery door shut on my Canon A590 digital camera has broken off. I would prefer not to spend the $99 Canon Canada charges for repairs.I think I could do one of two things:1) Buy a broken A590 and replace the part of the body which includes the tab.2) Make a replacement tab with delrin or aluminum.Replacing the body is probably fastest and easiest. Any advice on what part of the body this is (Looks like it might be the part which contains the batteries.) and how to dissassemble/reassemble the body? (I am looking for a cheap A590 which is broken).I don't know what the replacement tab looks like since I have not been able to find the bit I broke off. Does anyone have a picture of this?(with the camera upside down, and the lens facing me, and the battery door open, the broken tab is on the far right near the two holes for the batteries).TIA,Grant\015

The same thing happened to me this week. I called Canon Canada directly and asked to order the part (The battery compartment door).\015\012\015\012\015\012They gave me a phone number to call and I was able to order the replacement door for about $8.00 + $10-$12 shipping. Hope this helps!
Hi Grant,

\015\012Good luck finding a broken A590 cheap, I've been watching them on eBay and they have been going for $50 - $75 plus shipping. I can help with the disassembly part though, check this website for excellent details:

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! The retainers on the hinged door are fine (naturally it's the body!) The retainers don't meet each other as one slides the door closed and the spring loading makes the door pop open. Can a person use machine screws and latches or what??? (Velcro?...probably like tape that won't hold)

I have a Nikon D40 where the battery cover latch has broken through on the bottom of the camera body. It's similar to a door jab busting where the latch fits into the door jab. It looks like the bottom of the body can be unscrewed and I'm trying to find the part online so I can repair.


You'll have to get that from Nikon, ( the bottom cover ). I doubt if you will find it else where.Nikon Parts 841 Apollo Street, Suite 100, El Segundo CA 90245(310) 414-8107, (310) 322-6979 ... Digital Cameras

I've replaced the battery door using the solution on this site, but still have a problem. The battery door does not slide all the way into the slot and will not stay shut when batteries are present. there is a 1/16th inch gap between the door and the camera body. The original door was sitting the same way and think that is what caused the clip on the door to break off. Any suggestions?
