Battery replacement problem

HP Recommended
HP 12C

I have an older HP 12c. When replacing the CR2032 battery the unit works ok until I put on the battery cover, then it shuts off.  If I push on the battery I get the same result.  Seems like the extra pressure is causing some sort of short or bad contact. Appreciate any suggestions other than using tape to loosely hold the battery in place.  Thanks.

Try to buy another Manganese dioxide–Li/Organic Electrolyte coin type battery, that is lower in height, of the recognized brands ... Duracell, Maxell, Panasonic, Eveready, 3VDC.

See, the dimention's, of Maxell brand ...

Kind Regards !.
Have a nice day !.
