Customer Question

I have a Nikon 14X HD camera. I am unable to open up the area where the batteries are and where the card is. It seems like it is glued shut, or something. Any ideas.

Hello. My name is Michael. I can help you with your question. I have the same model, and it can be difficult to open.

First, you have to make sure the switch on the door is in the open position. This is the position that has the symbol that looks like pac man with an open mouth. Then, I the same side, lift the edge up with your fingernail and it should open. If you have batteries in there, then unlocking and tapping it on your hand may allow it to open as well, with the weight of the batteries pushing it open. If this doesn't solve the problem, please let me know.
