A small plastic piece broke on the camera body housing that is suppose to hold the battery door closed.
Does anyone have an idea how this can be repaired of mended, as it is too expensive to send it to Nikon. It looks like, or did, an inverted U-shape where the tongue of the battery cover latch slips into it to secure the battery cover, that tongue, for a better word fits into the U-shaped plastic thingy, which now has the top of it broken off.
TIA

Thanks for your reply but it is not the door that is broken, its part of the body.

Put some duct tape on it for now and replace it with a new camera. They're better and cheaper now but for as to how long they will last ?? My advice is to treat these things as the fragile plastic toys they are or buy one of the Casio or Canon slim cameras with an all-metal body.

Thanks Steve for your promt reply. Metal body...O.K.
Sounds right to me, which model Casio or Canon would you recommend (4 to 5mg is fine). I would like to have one that has an ISO of at least 800 and some manual controls (Aperture, etc), and a viewfinder, but would like to stay with a compact point and shoot design. Don :-)

Check out the Casio EX-Z850, compact, metal body, PASM exposure modes, lots of resolution and modestly priced.
