I just did this repair a few weeks ago. I got one of these cameras for free with this problem and saw someone else's post who solved it this way: I got a piece of scrap aluminum that closely fit the bottom of the camera, and shaped it to hold the battery door closed. I use a screw from an old leather camera case to hold it in place. It took me about an hour to do. Please excuse the crappy cell phone photos.
