Pentax ist d

Hello,
Can you tell me, my camera Pentax ist d, has lost its internal battery cap and therefore can not use the internal battery. What could cause this problem? And even that is not coming out of the usb cable into a computer to transfer photos. These two things can be to each other?
Thanks

If you can't power on the camera, you won't be able to use its USB mode. Take the CF card out and put it in a card reader to get your pictures.

As for the battery door- either wear and tear (unlikely) or physical damage.

My USB cable has never worked, so you're lucky.

Worse comes to worse and you can't fix it and you really want to keep using your *ist, there's always the battery grip option. I like the battery sled more than fumbling with the door on the body anyway.
