Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Please tell me: did the battery door hinge break owing to the camera being dropped? or did it break in the course of normal usage and care for the camera ?
If it was normal usage and was never dropped nor otherwise damaged by your neglect or mishandling, then it is covered by warranty as a failure that the company that made it is responsible for.
I advise you to contact Panasonic Canada, and put in a failed-within-warranty claim on the camera, for free repairs.
In a moment I'll give you contact info for Panasonic Canada, also.
Support for Panasonic Canada (a fee charged for out-of-warranty products, so have your sales slip for the camera available to refer to or to cite to them if asked, and if you call this number) is at 1-***-***-**** .
Lumix repair (warranty repair?) is this number, for Mississauga Ontario of course: 1-***-***-**** .
If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!
