The door to the battery compartment opens slightly and won't get contact with the batteries so I can't take pictures. Do you know how to get the battery door to tighten up so it will get contact with the batteries? Thank you

Sometimes, the lower contacts get bent downward after years of use, causing the batteries to ride low in the compartment, and thus making poor contact when the battery door is closed. Try lifting/bending these interior battery contacts upward, so that the batteries ride higher when inserted.

Remove the batterty andclean the internal battery contact with an eraser on the end of a pencil- take a flash light to look inside the compartment to enfure they are bright and clean. Make sure the battery door and contact srip are a good tight fit Hold the door down with a finger whilst switching on Other than that there is little moreyou can do
Usually the memory card (which is what the SD card is - it is like film for a non-digital camera) is inserted in the same area as the battery or batteries. If you open the battery compartment, you may see a slot next to where the batteries are placed. You should insert the card with the metal parts in the same direction as the matching ones inside the slot (there may be a small diagram on the door of the battery compartment).
There's a chance that the drop is irrelevant to your problem.
You could try using a small eraser to clean the battery contacts down in the chamber (make sure to dump out any eraser particles) and try a new CRV-3 battery, which because of it's slightly longer body produces a little more pressure on the contacts. If that doesn't work to improve things then your cam might need a repair, your call there.
