Nikon Coolpix 2100/3100/3200 battery compartment door latch broken (again)

\015 Tens of thousands of these Nikon Coolpix 2100 and Nikon Coolpix 3100 cameras have broken at the flimsly battery door latch molded onto the body of the camera. A few dozen people have fixed it themselves and Nikon refuses to fix it even under warranty (Nikon Service Relations 800-645-6678).

I just purchased a new battery door for $15 with shipping from nikon. They sent a simple assembly diagram and I was able to replace the door in 30 minutes. I used a dremel to cut the old door off, but you dont have to do that. I got a little impatient.

Just buy the plastic piece and u can reuse the metal parts for your old battery door.
My Nikon E3100 also have this problem. I fixed it myself. You can find it at http://amtpls.multiply.com/journal/item/32/Broken_Door_Latch_on_Nikon_E_3100\015\012Unfortunately, it was Indonesian Language, but by looking the photograph, you'll understand the principles.

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
