Re: battery /card door for my olympus d535
The part you are looking for is not selling separately.Your best bet is to keep the battery compartment door in place with scotch tape or other strong tape after you insert new batteries and look on ebay or craigs list for a similar camera which is defective and they are selling it for parts.You should be able to find one within a month or I can look for one for you and email you withe the link.just let me know

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Windows Photo Gallery.
i just purchased a new cover for $33 from uscamera. part#omp vg4293. You will need a jewlers philips screw driver. Make sure you lay out screws where they came out. They're different. Looking at the bottom,Remove 1 screw under battery door. Two screws on bottom my mount. Open little door on left for mem card and remove 2 screws. Open little door on right side where cable goes, remove 2 screws. Then gently on end wher door goes, pull back cover back just enough to remove old door and reinstall new door. Press back together and install screws.
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.
The switch is a micro switch that is depressed(and not sad :)) by a plastic tag moulded on the battery cover. Once the cover is moved into position and closed, the tag presses on the micro switch closing the switch and thus removing the error message. As with any switch, a switch is simply open or closed, Open = high resistance or O/L, while closed = 0 ohms reistance. You can use a small wire to overcome the switch by soldering the wire to both tags of the switch so it is permenantly 0 ohms. This will send a message to the microprocessor that cover is closed and camera ready for use. Hope this helps.
Look for the switch on the memory card door of your camera. Usually a small piece of plastic on the door closes the switch when the door is closed. Check to make sure that the plastic piece is not worn down and is making contact with the switch. You can confirm that this is the problem by powering on the camera while closing the switch manually with a toothpick. Make sure you keep your fingers clear of the extending lens while doing this. If the plastic is worn down or broken off, try attaching a small piece of scrap plastic with super glue.
Open the battery door and check the contact between the camera and the batteries. Most often then not there is just a bad contact and it's ruinning your baterry life.
Make sure that the contact are well placed and that there is no rust or dirt build up around there.
YOu have 2 options to transfer images to your computer. One is the USB cable that should be supplied with the camera. There is an up and a down and the cable connector could be bent making it not fit.
The second way is a card reader, the card reader also uses USB im not really sure your problem if the ports are just hidden or you just dont haev USB ports at all.
Some dell systems have a little door on the front of the tower box (this sits on the floor) usualy they are in the front, a little door flips up and exposes the ports.
USB is a common plug type and i think any computer made after 1998 should have a USB port.
