Nikon D200 battery door - is it broken?

\015 I have a D200 and the battery compartment door came off. I'm not sure if the little plastic hinge piece broke. It seems to be asymmetric: a rod sticks out on one side and forms a pivoting hinge. On the other side there is no rod, and I can't tell from looking at the plastic whether it is broken or simply a rather rough finish. Are there meant to be two rods sticking out of this piece? Can I buy a replacement door?\015

Answers :

The battery door is meant to come off so the MB-D200 battery pack can be inserted, but it sounds as if yours has broken. There should be equally-sized rods that form the pivoting hinge, on on top and one on the bottom. Yes, you can buy a replacement part, probably through a local dealer or online. I believe online they cost around $20-$25. To remove the door, you are supposed to open the door to a 60-degree angle to the camera body and gently pull the door off. To replace the door, again, hold the door at a 60-degree angle to the body and gently press it into place. Or you could pay a repair shop an arm and leg to do this for you ($50 or more + shipping if you use a mail order repair shop).

\015\012I remember the 'good old days' when film SLR's were made to take a beating. Sadlly, we're in the era of plastic and I always have to remember to treat every piece of equipment as if it were made of glass!

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

When I leave the fully charged battery in the camera for about 10 days it gets completely discharged. This is the original Nikon battery. I though the battery is old and bought a genuine Nikon battery. The issue is the same. My relatives have Nikon D200, D70s etc and they do not have these issues and the battery if left in camera last for more than 6 or many more weeks. How long should a fully charged battery last in the Camera ? ( I leave my camera off after use )


Does your camera use a compact flash card? I've heard that some Nikon cameras have a problem with the flash card draining power when not in use. Try removing the card when not using and see if the battery lasts longer. ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera
