Barbara, Try a reset first, remove tape, remove battery for 30 seconds and reinstall, try camera. Still not working, remove tape and with door open use compressed air to blow any dust/debri from door mechanism and compartment, when clean and battery fully charged try camera function. Camera may have to be disassembled to access the drawer motor contacts to clean. For other trouble shooting tips check out the attached link #1 to a forum which discusses this issue, link 2 is your pdf manual. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
