This normally is cause from of course condensation got wet or damp, and some times it is just that the tape area needs cleaning. Best thing first is try to new tape, then of course make sure it is dry, leave cover open and camera in warm area, if not then needs cleaning. mike
There's really not much you can do once the battery cover has broken from your camera. Depending on what brand/company your camera is from, they may replace it if it's under warranty. The best you can really do is get some tape and tape the cover, but even that won't provide a secure connection.
If you can't return the camera for service, my advice would be to close the battery compartment with tape. Not pretty but better than buying a new camera, I've done it a few times on old cameras and apart from cosmetics, works fine. Just make sure to use enough tape so the batteries won't fly out when using it.
The tape will be badly damaged if trapped in camera, this always happens when the camera has got dirty heads and capstan rollers, some times the door wont open if this happens, but if it does open your local camera shop may get the film out.
The reason your tape wont come out the camera is because you may have not cleaned the record heads of late, they get tacky, grab your delecate tapes and twined them round the capstan and heads, then yes your little tape is well and truly stuck, trapped like a rat in a cage. I have managed to get tapes out within a few minutes with a small screw driver and small pin, so I cannot see why they told you that stupid amount of money.
You need to use you fingernail and pop off the entire button assembly. When you have done this you will be looking inside your camera.
Set the new button assembly into the slots. It will not want to go on by just pushing down. The plasitc assembly is very slick so put a small piece of scotch tape the yellow stuff. I put the tape around the plastic assembly. Make sure you are only putting tape on the chrome plastic assembly. The reason for the tape is to get a good hold of the plastic asembly.
Once you have the tape on the assembly/chrome piece you need to really push down and twist clockwise. You will hear a click and then another click. Make sure you hear two clicks. I had to push and twist pretty hard to make it lock into place.
I was getting the same code and a dinging noise. I tried a cleaner and I tried letting the camera dry out...it wasn't wet! Neither worked. SOOO...Don't buy a cleaner. Look inside camcorder and make sure both reel turners are equal in height...they can slide down. Turn both of them...one of mine was down and also did not turn to make contact with tape. We got it to turn and the message C31:23 and the dinging quit. The stripes/bars also went away. Camera instantly worked like it used to. Good luck.
1-800-ok-canon is the number unfortunatley there isnt a mauual way to open it without breaking something, in any manual posted. Best advice is to call and ask plus you can get a quote for repairs while your on...Sorry
