My DX7440 is only 5 days old. I've charged and only loaded the battery once. There is one door compartment which holds the battery and memory card. There is a plastic "battery lock" tab which holds the battery in. This morning I discovered that tab was broke, so now of course can't close the compartment door. I'm sure the store will exchange the camera or have it repaired.... my worry is, while I love everything else about this camera so far, I'm wondering if this plastic battery lock tab breaking off is going to be a reoccuring problem. Has anyone else had this problem. In the 5 days I've had the camera, while I haven't opened the compartment door every day, I do remove the SD card to download photos to the PC, so of course this means I need to open the compartment. I'm wondering if every time I open the compartment, pressure is being put on that plastic tab by the battery attempting to pop up.
