I had this problem also (see below).

After\015\012getting poor results with the duct tape solution, I discovered another\015\012work-around. This should work whether it is chipped lugs on the door or\015\012on the body.

Firstly I used an old camera flash bracket that\015\012screws into the tripod socket, and this holds the battery door in place\015\012quite securely. However it was too long, so I cut and filed a piece of\015\012aluminium 25mm (1") wide by 2.5mm thick to the right length (around\015\012100mm/4") and shape, and made a hole for the bracket screw.

End result is not exactly like new, but more functional than the duct tape and does not further damage the actual camera:

Thanks for the help on this page, specially the aluminum bar solution worked perfect. Except: my wife did not approve of the looks.
\015\012I bought a used (broken) S5000 from eBay and replaced the battery compartment:
\015\012Procedure:
\015\0121) Remove batteries
\015\0122) Remove memory card
\015\0123) Remove the 5 visible screws:
\015\012 2 at bottom near serial number
\015\012 2 near strap
\015\012 1 near memory card door
\015\0124) Gently remove back part of the camera from the main body.
\015\012 There are some plastic tabs below the +/- button
\015\0125) Wiggle the whole back from the camera body
\015\0126) unclip (flip the little brown flap up) connector CN205 and slide the cable out
\015\0127) remove the screw underneath that cable. It holds the battery compartment in place
\015\0128) Slide out the upper ribbon cable (connector CN204)
\015\0129) Slide out the battery compartment
\015\01210) unplug the battery power cable (one red and one white wire) from the camera
\015\012
\015\012To reinstall use reverse procedure.
\015\012I tried it a few times on the broken camera first. It is not too bad, a bit of patience, a good light, reading glasses, small phillips screwdriver and tweezers will help a lot.

My Canon PowerShot SD780 IS will not turn on. I purchased another battery to make sure that wasn't the problem and it isn't. I have tried pressing the power button and OK button simultaneously for a few seconds and that hasn't helped. The power light doesn't turn on, the lens doesn't open, it doesn't even beep. I desperately need help and would really appreciate any advice. Thanks, Vanessa A.

My computer won't recognyze my canon xsi. I plugged it in with 2 different usb cables, didn't work. I put in the memory card, didn't appear in my desktop.

I've restarted my computer several times. I would really appreciate any help you could give me.

I have an older pair of zoom lense Bushnell binoculars, 40mm with 7 to 21 power. I used to have a cabin in a very humid, mildewy area of Florida and it seems that the mold (mildew) has found its way into the lens whereupon it really messes up the viewing. I took the end pieces off and cleaned the insides with camera lens cleaning items and that helped, but I think the eye pieces need to be removed to finish the job. How do you do that? I'm not sure they are screwed onto the body! Has anyo
