Sony Cyber-Shot Battery Compartment Door Broken

\015 My husband dropped our Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Camera and broke the latches on the camera compartment door. Now I have to tape it shut. Any way to fix this relatively cheaply, like under $50.\015

Answers :

I'm having the same problem with my DSC-W1 camera. I dropped my camera and the battery door latches broke.
\015\012I found a replacement door on Ebay for $9.95
\015\012I followed the instructions in the description and easily removed the broken door from my camera. Now i'm just waiting on the new door to arrive so I could slide the new door in.
\015\012I hope this was helpful.

\015\012Here's the seller I bought the door from. Hopefully the seller has more doors. =) :

Broken battery compartment latches? A simple practical solution.
Load batteries. Close door. With 1/4" NC roundhead screw secure a small plate covering the battery compartment at the tripod mount.
With a bit more effort add a handle to secure the plate. This would create a more stable and easier to shoot camera less prone to fall from your grip.
