Why doesn’t the back cover of my 35 mm Canon Rebel close when I push on it?

It’s one of those cameras with the lenses. I hadn’t used it for a while and I noticed that it didn’t close when I was trying to close it, I kept pushing on it, but nothing happened. Nothing looks broken, and it’s practically new.

The Lubrication grease on the latch may be hardened and prevent the latch from locking with the pin when you push it closed… a quick fix would be put a small screwdriver in the opening of the latch. Don’t force it..just wiggle it…a small hairpin would work too! The camera back may be torqued and out of alignment too! Try twisting it on the hinges slightly and try closing it again. Take it to a local camera shop that you trust and they can help or give you a estimate on repair!
