Even if the card door is closed and it is propmting open then most probably you have broken the micro switch fitted under the card door. After getting it changed you won't get the message

My screen keep showing the Card Cover Open Error even though the cover is closed. What can i do It says "Card Over Open" when it is closed


The card door sensor is either damaged, failing or gone completely. You can take camera apart, (7 screws I think) take the back off. Sensor is at the back of camera near the battery door. If sensor is missing, you will see 2 spots on the electronics board where it was connected. Carefully melt solder so that those two points are connected. If sensor is still in place it's probably damaged. Carefully remove sensor using small snips or something like that, with out damaging anything around sensor. Then solder 2 points together. Good Luck

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.

Look in the card slot in the side or around the edges of the opening to see if you can find a switch or little button or anything that could be stuck or broken. This is the sensor that tells the camera when it's open or not.

"Card-cover open" error message


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... A 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).
