Can't turn the camera on to download pictures because the USB cable attachment is beside the batteries. You open the compartment which means there is no connection for the battery terminals. So how do you turn on the camera??

The small sliding bar which operates the closure to the battery compartment on my Canon Ixus 750 Camera has popped out when I tried to open it to replace the battery.

I am having difficulty putting it back and am reluctant to force it in case I break one of the plastic hooks. What is the best way forward?
