This is an old A70, but the way it's done is very similar as I don't think this has changed much over the years. It's a pin design that you have to push out with a stiff unbent paperclip. You push in on the side with the smaller hole. To access the pin you'll need to remove the front and back case covers. See the following:

The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

For the best results, I recommend you to use Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries. Rechargeable batteries provide the best performance and are the most economical choice.
AA alkaline batteries such as those from Energizer or Duracell will provide the best performance for non-rechargeable batteries.

It depends on what's holding or keeping the door open. Is it the battery compartment, or the memory stick holder? Or is the door just sprung? Some problems require taking the camera apart. there is a metal flex piece in the memory compartment that could have gotten out of position, and is causing the problem. In this case, you might be able to take something to push it back into place deep inside the memory card holder. That's about all you can maybe try without taking the camera apart to see what's going on. If you don't have any success with that, you can try to take the camera apart, but it's kind of tedious, and you have to make sure you discharge the flash capacitor once you get to the insides (it won't hurt you, but will startle you, possible causing you to drop the camera and do further damage). You can short out the contacts of the capacitor with a screwdriver- be ready to hear a sharp pop when you do it, and do it 2 or 3 times, just to make sure all the charge is drained from the capacitor (their job is to store voltage). You can check with a camera shop on what they might charge, and have them look at it, but get an estimate first. Oftentimes, the cost of repair is high, and in that case, it's often better just to consider getting a new camera on sale. I've seen name brand 10.2 mp cameras going for $69 on sale, and that's usually cheaper than the cost of repair. Hope this helps, and it's something simple you can fix yourself. Good luck.
