Answers :

I found the same problem posted by another member. Using a bobby pin instead of a matchstick as suggested, (only because I did not have a matchstick) I put one end of it into the hole beside the memory slot and tripped the stuck trigger. Worked perfectly. THANK YOU!

The cover on the battery and SD card opening on the camera broke off and couldn't be found on the ground. A small piece of cover and the hinge are still on the camera. When the camera is turned on a message 'card cover open' comes on screen and though I made a temporary cover with a thin piece of wooden pop stick and another with some stiff card and taped them on the camera still came up with same message. Can I get a new cover/door or what can I do??

I imagine the only way to obtain a proper part is to send it to an approved Olympus service centre, hopefully under warranty (though I expect they would not regard this as covered).The camera must have some way of telling that the door is ... Olympus FE-240 Digital Camera
