Customer Question

I have a Coolpix L830. I can't get the battery chamber open.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Camera Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: I am pushing the little thing on the slot cover but there is no action, such as the cover springing open. And I can't pry it open.
JA: Is there anything else the Camera Technician should be aware of?
Customer: Well, I am not technically intuitive. I am an idiot about these matters!
JA: Our top Camera Technician is ready to take your case. Just pay the $5 fully refundable deposit and I'll fill the Camera Technician in on everything we've discussed. You can go back and forth with the Camera Technician until you're 100% satisfied. We guarantee it.
