Question about Cameras
I cannot open the battery door on my camera. I had not used it for a while, and when I tried to open the battery door, it wouldn't budge. There are no batteries inside. I've pushed down on the tiny gray button, pushed toward the outside of the camera, just like the directions indicate, but it doesn't move.I've tried prying it open, but all I've done is nick up the button and plastic case.
No easy solution except:
1. Remove all 3 screws from body.
2. Carefully wedge off the back half of body.
3. The back half is connected to the front half by a small cable. Don't break this!
4. The door has a hinge pin. Wedge up and remove this pin.
5. With small screwdriver, wedge off the door from top. Should pop out.
6. Apply small amount of oil on sliding areas.
7. Reinsert door. If still stuck, see step 5.
8. Reassemble camera back and screw down.
9. The reason for sticking is unknown, but door can still be removed by popping off as in step 5.
