Question about Canon Wordtank G50
The batteries seem somewhat loose in the battery container. The machine has a tendency to turn on and off as a result. I'm currently jamming a little aluminum foil in to hold the batteries in place, but it's not a good fix.
If no one has a fix, do you have suggestions on where to get it repaired, preferably in the Boston or Chicago area?
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

Call Canon tech support. It's free support and you may end up coming out cheaper by upgrading your camera through their Canon Loyalty program than having it repaired.

Unfortunately, you have to force the battery door (very carefully) to open it, and find what is wrong with it.
It is more likely that when closed the battery door, it was forced and it slided out of one guide channels.
You need to practice a little bit before to try it with force (genlty but with firm force), but the only way to do it is slide the button to open it, and at the same time slide to the side and pull the battery door, everything at the same time. Try it until you are able to open it.
Using any kind of tool (such a plastic pry tool, a small screwdriver, etc) to force will leave marks in the housing, and it's very possible that the plastic locking tabs will break, causing that you will open it, but unable to close properly again.

The same thing happened to me this week. I called Canon Canada directly and asked to order the part (The battery compartment door). They gave me a phone number to call and I was able to order the replacement door for about $8.00 + $10-$12 shipping. Hope this helps!

You could try wedging something between the battery and the side of the compartment to hold it in place. Leave a tab so you can pull it out.
