***putting in foam pieces did not keep the battery in place or camera on
When my battery lug broke in my K30, the camera still worked even without a spacer added to the battery compartment. I had mine repaired simply because I still had a month of warranty left.
Note ......I purchased mine from Canada so I had a 2 year warranty.

Is your battery charged and still good?

I will check if I have the AA adapter . I purchased many accessories and believe that's one.

I have been using mine without the retainer for a while now; no foam, just held in place with the battery door. I haven't had any problems. It should work even without the retainer, so keep trying.

I wonder if you could wedge a piece of paper or something into the battery compartment to hold the battery in place and avoid extra tension on the battery door. D-Li109 batteries, especially the generics fit pretty snug in the battery compartment already.
