Rubber door usb/hdmi/dc port K-5 came of.

It's hinges broke. I had no problem getting the hinges out of the K-5. Has anybody had this problem and did you fix it? As I am liable to lose the cover now.

Consider making an improvised hinge using duct tape (it's available in black, not only the ubiquitous silver found in many toolboxes). Insert the door, clean the door and camera surface with an alcohol swab, apply a strip of tape spanning the forward facing seam where the door and camera meet.

Buy a replacement part.

Is this the cover?
Pentax 77760-A0281 Connector Cover | K-3 | K-5 | K-7 | USCamera PartsUSCamera

USCamera has it in stock. They ship overseas.

Another forum member mentioned there is a photo equipment store in Germany that will sell parts to end users. I believe it is Rüdiger Maerz GmbH possibly in Berlin in Hamburg but I'm not certain. You have the part number from the above link.
