@rfsmith48, Roger, while pushing release try press down and wiggling the door a little side to side and then pull up on door. Once open put a little lube on the latch and mechanism. Good luck.

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

normally anyone with a lick of sense would have already done all of the above :( I made the comment when I decided to google a solution stating, I see so many of these cameras in the hock shops and thrift stores with broken battery doors, now I know why :( If you do this BS you will end up with yet another camera with a broken door. :( Boo Hiss
