Fuji S5000 camera problem....The battery door will not latch because the cheap plastic retaining nipples inside the battery box have worn down/or broken. Tape will not even hold door closed! The retainers on the hinged door are fine (naturally it's the body!) The retainers don't meet each other as one slides the door closed and the spring loading makes the door pop open. Can a person use machine screws and latches or what??? (Velcro?...probably like tape that won't hold)

I then pop the battery open and pop it back in and it seems to work. Then after closing it again, it seems to malfunction again. Sometimes it shows a freshly charged battery in the "red". I have bought a replacement battery, but it seems to be same exact result. This is so frustrating, I have f
