I have a retro tech question. My old JVC C-P7U mini tape adapter door is jammed, can someone help?

I went to open up the door on my JVC c-p7u mini tape adapter, but nothing happened. So I discovered the battery was dead, so I put a new one in. However now the switch in front is still stuck in the wrong position and that is preventing the door from opening up.
