This is the scenario:

A. Sorry, I didn't lock the door.
B. I'll solve it. (intended to say: "Don't worry! It is not a big deal you are afraid of, I solve this issue by just going and locking the door that has been left open!")

Is there any idiom in English to use as a reply to A?

You did not define the context. Without context, here is what I understand.

The reply does not sound natural to me. You solve mysteries, puzzles, sum, problems etc. Locking the door generally does not belong to any of them!

Sorry, I didn't lock the door.
Don't worry, I'll do it! (Your sentence seems filled with superfluous words especially when the context is not clear that why was s/he afraid locking the door).

I'll edit my answer if you make your question clearer.

    +1 "I'll do it" is good. "I'll take care of it" is often heard in the US. Commented Mar 29, 2014 at 15:35

    @ZhanlongZheng "I'll get it" is more likely; this would be called for if there were two or more problems and you're indicating which you'll take care of. Commented Jun 15, 2014 at 14:20

Yes there is! This occurs commonly, as you suspected. The common idioms are:

  • I got it. (or the variation "I'll get it.")
  • No problem [I got it].
  • Don't worry, I'll get it.
  • I gotcha covered.1

  • and even more informally, "I gotcha covered"

  • ... or more formally (and more British) "Don't worry, I'll deal with it"
