Question about Canon Photography
You need the camera powered up and all the film used to activate the release mechanism for the lock to release the film door, the Elph film door will not open until all the pictures have been taken. It uses A CR2 Lithium battery

I used to use a Canon older than yours. So I'm guessing it might have the same construction. The film advance knob may have a small holding pin or it is just out of it's correct position. If you can feel the knob and see if you can hook the pin back on then your problem is partially solved. If that doesn't work a techncian would probably dismantle the camera from the top as well as from the hinge. It can be fixed but I'm not sure if the fixing will be cheap. I'm a handyman of sort so I would try to unhinge the pin (other side of the knob) and use a flashlight and a long thin wire to see if I can unclip the side that is hooked to the knob. Either way, this is not going to be easy and you need to be careful not to scratch(at least minimize) the inside of the camera or damage any part of the shutter. This is almost like a doctor doing brain surgergy so if you don't have a steady hand and even temper don't try it. It's not going to be easy. Usually the back cover has the hook and the advance knob has the flat metal sheet that holds on to the cover's hook. If you can pull this metal sheet up, that should release the back cover. You'd have to use a strong wire or paper clip. Not the copper types but the stainless steel ones and use a long nose plier to create a hook.

Rewind the film first. If the door is still locked, then procede with a plan outlined on page 121 of your camera manual(lever on the right side of the camera)here is a digital copy of it. http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/manuals/film-cameras/film_af_slr/index.html
