Trying to put battery in I press the orange battery latch

Customer Question

Trying to put battery in I press the orange battery latch and there is no clicking and
door won't close. Is this an easy fix or do I need to buy a new camera

Hi Maureen and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, the described issue is a hardware problem. Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach?Would a link to an online seller of the replacement part serve your need?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
This doesn't tell me anything! Is it worth fixing or not. I don't know what you mean link to an online seller of the replacement part. What part do I need?
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.
The cost of the part is about 10USD.Do you want to repair the camera?If yes, then I can provide information where the part can be bought.Please post back how you would want to approach this and/or should additional information be needed.

I would attempt to do this if it is not too difficult, or if it requires a lot technical ability I would just take it to a camera repair`

The door to the battery compartment closes just fine without the battery, so I think there is something wrong with the orange latch that won't allow battery to click into place
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.
I understand.If not the door/cover itself, then the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover latch. Please click HERE. These are the parts available from a Nikon authorized Service Center.
