Hi, I have exactly the same problem. However, instead of getting a new body with a broken screen and exchanging my screen (One of the only ways round it) I thought I'd try something.

I folded a piece of paper (Quite a small piece) and put in on top of the card when it is popped. I then just closed the battery/card cover and it stayed in place. This is a cheap way of fixing it, it's now been fine for a while, it's a bit of a shoddy fix but it's better than paying nikon £50 to get it fixed.

It takes a couple of trys, getting the paper the right size was a little bit of a pain but it now works fine.

Good luck,
J
I had the same problem with my Olympus sp-550uz. I took your recommendation and it did take a few tries to get the paper right and get the memory door closed but it worked. Thank you so much I was tring to decide what to do with it as it was $150.00 or so to get it fixed at Olympus. I am so happy!!! Thank you so much

I was brought a coolpix Nikon camaera at the end of March and after buying the correct memory card for it, I always get an error message saying that this card can not be used.
