Hi all,

I recently acquired this old AZ-1 Zoom and the only trouble it's giving me (so far) is the previous owners have completely chewed up the slot on the battery door. It's the kind where you push down the tab with a coin and slide the door open. Is there anything I can do to either replace this stubborn mechanism or repair it in some way? I can get it to work with a lot of force and a screw driver to push the tab down, but if I can make it run a little smoother for when I'm out and about that would be great.

Many thanks!

I'd say the only way to fix it is get another Az for parts or just another one that works with no defects.
