Question about Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera
The battery/card door on my Canon PowerShot SX100IS is jammed and I am unable to open it. The little switch that moved back and forth is also jammed. This happened after I took the card out and closed the little door, so the card is not in the camera and the batteries are in the camera.
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.
