Having problems with your Olympus Stylus Verve / ?-mini Digital Camera ?
"Card-cover open" error message
\015 I have an Olympus Stylus Verve, it's always worked just fine. But today, after switching memory cards, it gave the message "Card-cover open". The card cover is closed, I tried switching back to the memory card I had in there before, and it still says this. I can't take pictures or get the pictures I already have from the camera to the computer. It doesn't let me do anything. I've never had any problem with the card cover before.\015
I had this same problem and I took a jewler screw driver and moved the little 'tang' on the latch (sensor?) on the camera side (not door side) of the battery and card compartment. Close the door and the message went away (for now?!)
It's when putting the card in.. typically you put it in and it clicks (so to speak).. if you delay removing your finger-push, it does something to the card and makes a Disconnect, although in looking at it, it looks just fine.. and the cover closes...\015\012\015\012A lot of people are reporting 'door open' errors. The micro-switch in the door housing is quite sensitive and pressure shifts from your hand on the door can cause it to trigger as if the door were opened. some get progressively worse. One fix is to add a little bit of length to the plastic that contacts the switch, either a layer of tape or a drop of epoxy, etc. This may help (or may not if the switch itself is flaky). Another fix discussed bypassing the switch altogether, obviously not for the faint of heart (or cameras in warrantee).

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
