I require a new battery compartment door for my Olympus

Customer Question
I require a new...

I require a new battery compartment door for my Olympus SP-550UZ 7.1 megapix camera. Can you direct me as to where I may be able to purchase one? I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Technician's Assistant: How old is your SP-550UZ?

About 10 years old.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your SP-550UZ?

I had it repaired once, and now the door has been broken severely when the camera was deopped. I have taken it to a photo shop in Winnipeg and they suggested I go online for help.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Is it worth repairing if it can be repaired?
