GF1 Battery Compartment Latch Door
Jul 16, 2010

We've enjoyed our Lumix GF1 for four months now and have been pleased with the photos taken with it. Recently, the battery latch door had one of the small mini screw "housing" fracture out. The door won't stay closed. We contacted Panasonic and they suggested that for 3 to 4 weeks down time and $145 US, we could have it repaired (in spite of the one year warranty).

We really don't want want to be out the down time or the money to repair it. Anyone else with a similar problem? Any solution besides duct tape? Thanks for your input.
