I was hoping to have some help, we have in internal sliding door which is essentially painted chipboard with a hollow centre, its damaged and I'm not sure how to fix it. Any ideas gratefully accepted. Photos attached.

It depends on what tools you have and how handy your are. You need to source some ply, hardboard or timber as thick as the outer face panel. Clean out a square, just down to the substrate, I think it is a lock block. Not too big an area just enough to cover the damage and glue in a patch to get it all level. Use filler to finish it flush and neat and then paint the whole door.

For cleaning out, a sharp chisel and a mallet will do it but it would be quicker with a multi tool to plunge cut. It might be hard to source the infill wood and you might be able to get a good wood yard to thickness some stock for you. if you take a sample. It looks like hardboard thickness though. :thumbright:

:withstupid: cut out a square and splice is a new piece of ply, sand/plane to fit

If you just fill it will crack out in no time
