Having problems with your Olympus FE-140 Digital Camera ?

Olympus FE-140 The hair-thin "eject" tab for the memory stick broke off the first time I tried using it! Now my camera says "card-cover open" and can't be used! Now what?



Answers :

Just got an FE-140 off of ebay that looks like it had the same problem.  Somebody just opened the case and made a \015\012solder bridge across the switch contacts.
Yes I had the same problem, however, where is says "push to eject," it means to push the the memory card down and it will eject. You pushed down the latch for the plastic door cover. Try pushing something into the hole so the camera thinks the door is closed. I am still having trouble with mine. Hope this helps alittle.

My Sony Cybershot Camera was dropped in water accidentally the other day. I have let it dry out as much as possible for 2 days. When I tried to use it, the camera still takes pics as it did before but it keeps saying "insert memory card" Anything more I can do? Is it worth trying it on with Sony as it's only 4 months old. Only thing is that I know that water damage is not normally covered. If they see water damage, will they bill me for the repair?
