I have removed the 5 screws outside the case, 2 inside the CF compartment and 2 in the batery compartment. I removed the zoom and the case is loose at the bottom but something seems to be holding it at the top in the area of the mode selector.
Thanks for any help.

Step 1 Try to use a different CF card Step 2. Remove the card and visually check the Compact Flash compartment on the camera.Use a flashlight and check the inside contacts (2 rows of thin golden pins). All the pins should be aligned & straight, and the Compact Flash compartment should be clean with no dirt or foreign objects inside.If you nottice some junk (stuff) in there you can try to remove it ( pull out the battery first) blowing some air (not canned air, only manual blower !) or pickup all the junk from inside with a toothpick or plastic tweezers.If you are NOT comfortable doing this, or have no experience in dealing
with the very sensitive electronic parts, DO NOT TOUCH anything, just
visually chect the inside and DO NOT try to remove the dirt (junk, stuff) mechanically, use just air.Use common sense and do it on your own risk ! You can damage your camera very easy ! If the pins are bended/broken/missing you have to send the camera out for service. Step 3.Reset the system removing BOTH batteries !.You have to remove the small 3 volt memory backup cell to. It is a small round button cell battery located inside the battery
compartment.Leave the camera for 20-30 minutes with no battery, you can press the shutter button for few seconds to be sure all the power was consumed from the capacitors.Put back the battery , restart and see if it works. If the error still occurs after following the steps above, your camera
may need repair. Contact Canon’s technical support for further
assistance.Due the fact is a 5 years+ camera you have to put in balance if is a good deal to send it out for repairs or to replace it.Good Luck.Let me know if worked.
I have just had exactly the same thing on my daughter's NV3.
In this case the lens cover would not open but if you power on the camera with you finger on the display button you can view stored images.
If the lens cover is jammed you need to open the casing and maybe take the lens cover assembly apart. You need a very small cross head screwdriver (No.00 should be OK). There are 5 screws in total, 4 screws on the outside of the case (3 plus1 under the headphone socket cap) and 1 inside the battery compartment. You need to remove all 5 to remove the camera front casing. There are some retaining springs top and bottom on the front cover, gently prize off to reveal the lens cover assembly.
Check to see if the lens cover will operate by switching on and off - if it works then the camera front casing is preventing it from opening and is probably bent out of shape. A little careful bending back into shape should resolve the problem. If it still does not work with the casing removed, read on.
This is the tricky part. There are two extremely small, black retaining screws to the left hand side which hold the assembly onto the lens cover motor. Remove these screws and the front of the lens cover assembly to reveal the lens cover and the back plate of the assembly.
Lift off the lens cover and switch on the camera. If the motor is still working, you will see a short black peg move from side to side as you turn the camera on and off. Thoroughly clean the lens cover and assembly, remove any obstruction and replace the lens cover making sure you locate the hole in the lens cover over the motor peg (described above).
The motor is magnetic and will attract the screws away from their holes if you replace the assembly front straight away, so when you replace the front of the lens cover assembly, place the screws in the correct holes before lowering it into place and then screw onto the motor/assembly back.
Test that the lens cover opens and closes and replace the Camera front cover taking care not to bend it too much - if this becomes distorted it can stop the lens cover from operating resulting in the same problem.
Remove the batery. Remove the case screws and pull the case apart. Where the flat ribbon cables connect to the main board, carefully release the clamps on the board end plugs. The plugs don't come off, the ribbon just comes out of them. Carefully remove the screen. It has double stick foam in a few spots. Put the new screen in, reconnect the ribbon cables and put the case back together. 30 minutes max.
Right, this is the info that you need. To remove and replace the battery door you need to follow 15 steps in the correct order, they are:
Remove the two screws (above lens) that hold on the flash cover. Remove the flash cover Remove the three screws on the view finder cover Remove the view finder cover Remove the two screws on the side of the battery compartment Remove the two screws in the middle of the base of the camera Remove the sliding cover on the left hand side of the lens Remove the single screw on the left hand (curved) part of the camera case Remove the single screw on the bottom left hand side of the casing Remove the trim piece on the right of the camera next to the lens, the top has a sticky pad under it so will be difficult to lift up. Remove the screw behind the trim plate Remove the back casing
The flap should now be replaceable, if you do not feel comfortable with this then get a professional shop to do it.
This usually occurs when the camera is exposed to water, sweat, high humidity or if you had leaky alkaline batteries. You have 2 choices to try. 1 take the camera apart and use an old toothbrush with WD40 and scrub the circiut board, you can inspect the battery compartment to see if you have corrosion from leaky batteries and do the above to fix. 2 use the camera as is and remove the batteries after each use.
No easy solution except:
1. Remove all 3 screws from body.
2. Carefully wedge off the back half of body.
3. The back half is connected to the front half by a small cable. Don't break this!
4. The door has a hinge pin. Wedge up and remove this pin.
5. With small screwdriver, wedge off the door from top. Should pop out.
6. Apply small amount of oil on sliding areas.
7. Reinsert door. If still stuck, see step 5.
8. Reassemble camera back and screw down.
9. The reason for sticking is unknown, but door can still be removed by popping off as in step 5.
The door kind of sits in a channel on the case. It should fit with the rod and spring that holds the door closed/in place. You need to remove the old door, and maybe the back part of the camera (there are screws inside the battery compartment, dont' forget them!). If you can't fix it, leave a note with an email address and maybe my company can fix it for you.
