If you mean the Moultrie M-888 mini game camera, you need to open the camera cover and then press a release button on the front of the camera to open the battery tray on the bottom of the camera. The release button is in the center at the bottom of this section of the camera. If the release button isn't working, then you need to discuss the problem with Moultrie.
this part is available with Nikon agency, to replace this you have to open the whole camera, then detach the front portion, it doesn't matter, just a piece of rubber or sponge fix on the battery lid, this will be help full to hold the battery at contact perfectly.
check to see if the latch is not already half closed. If so use a round bar( Phillips screwdriver) that will fit under the latch and pull out while trying to open the door
sometimes the latch will move to half closed and will be in the wrong position to fully engage the retainer
The latches are "frozen" because of metal contracting in the latch or latch lubricant physically becoming more viscous or freezing and preventing movement of the latch. You may need to apply a sub-freezing lubricant to prevent them from freezing up in low temperatures. Best put the car into a garage and let the general higher temperature unfreeze the latches.
Looking at the bottom of the camera, slide the oval latch in the center of the card/battery compartment door toward the back of the camera. Holding the latch there, slide the entire door toward the nearer end of the camera, and the door will swing open. To remove the memory card, press down on the card and it will pop up a bit. Grasp it between your fingertips and pull it out the rest of the way. (It'll probably be easier if you let the batteries fall out first.)
I assume you've already gone thru the obvious check and proposed fixes covered in the user manual (battery replacement, contact cleaning, etc). I did all that to no avail after dropping it about 1m onto a concrete floor last nite - after which it refused to power up.
There was no obvious mechanical damage other than a ding on the rear corner of the battery box door. After disassembly, seeking interior damage, I found a deformed piece of plastic near the door latch strike that was preventing the door closure switch next to the "MENU" button from fully operating. Some careful tweaking and making a note to push the latch fully closed after use fixed it.
This switch must be operated (opened) in order for the camera to run. You can verify this on a working A570 by pulling the door latch partway open, while keeping the door closed by hand, and trying to power up.
Same advice I made to another post. At some point you got to make a decision. There is a lot of plastic pieces that can break. Canon doesn't support the T series from what I've read. You may consider getting another one. You also have to consider that the fix may not work. Then what do you do?
You may want to try if the little black latch contact next to the
battery and the memory card is not working properly. The camera will freeze and not turn on when this contact is not engaged. Open the battery
latch, press down on the little black contact using a pen and try to
turn on the camera. If so, the latch doesn't engage that contact any
more in regular use. If not, no luck. I had this problem and fixed it
by putting a small thick piece of tape on the little pin on the latch
that is supposed to press this contact.
