Question about Argus Cameras
Battery corer will not close when batteries are installed - haven't been able to use this camera but once
The cover will close.
First, remove the batteries and try to close the latch.
Please "add comment" to let us know that it can close without batteries.
If it cannot close and latch, then the cover is broken.... can't fix here.
If you can close and latch it w/o batteries, then:
If you are using rechargeable batteries, they might be slightly bigger than alkaline batteries.
Put one alkaline battery in the camera and try to close and latch it. You may now know the "tricky" maneuver you have to do in order to close it with the batteries installed. Now try two batteries, etc. until you can maneuver all batteries.
I think this will work for you.
