Laurie Pearson,

I can understand the concern. In most cases the battery cover should just slide off towards the bottom of the remote. There should be an indent in the cover where you can put your thumb. Press down on that and slide downward to get the cover off. Let me know if you have any other questions!

How do I fix a jammed battery compartment in a kidde i12060 smoke detector?

You could try to pry the door loose with a small screwdriver. To be safe, make sure the primary 110V power is turned off before trying to loosen the compartment door.
This is an inexpensive unit, less than $10, and is easily replaced if you can't get the door open.
If you do decide to replace it, you may want to look into a combination unit which monitors smoke and carbon monoxide if you don't have a carbon monoxide detector already in your home.

This thing does not use batteries. It's as though someone intended to make it functioning, but decided not to. For the price of most of these, it should work!

Pins where you put the game in are bent. gameboy advancesp game pins

Get a hemostat (looks like a very skinny needle-nose pliers, usually stainless steel or chrome-plated). You can sometimes find these at a hardware store or tool supply house; otherwise a medical supply vendor.
Remove the battery from the Gameboy and keep one finger on the - battery contact inside the battery compartment. This will protect the unit from static electricity damage from the other hand holding the hemostat. Use that tool to carefully straighten the bent pins. Bent pins break easily; that's why you need to be careful not to use too much force or bend them too far the other way.
If you do break a pin, you'll have to replace the connector. This requires some fine soldering skills and good tools. It is not something you can do with Grandpa's soldering gun.

I just received this dv002 camera and can't get the battery compartment open. I'm afraid if I force it open, it will break.

You do not need to open up the battery compartment, as it is a built-in rechargeable battery. Use the cable included to recharge the camera.
