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?

I have a Nikon Coolpix S610 (I think model #32507688). The little orange battery lock that keeps the battery in place broke and fell out. The outer door does not hold the battery in and the camera does not work or shuts down if we don't constantly hold the battery in place during use. Can I purchase this piece and replace it myself. Quotes on a repair of this is almost as much as a new camera. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Lens error I have an ixus 230 HS - I turned it on the other day & I must have bumped the lens or something, as it shut down. The lens stayed out though & wont close, when i turn it on it starts beeping at me & "Lens error, Will shut down automatically. Restart camera" comes up on the screen, it then shuts down again. I have removed the battery & the memory card, but to no avail.
