SOURCE: My screen keep showing the Card Cover Open Error even though the cover 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

SOURCE: "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).

SOURCE: Olympus Stylus 770SW error message

After only 15 days mine did the same thing. I called the dealer Olympus and they gave me a RAN number and told me where to send it. I got a call about a week later. They said because the camera had moisture inside I was not coverd. The best they would do is mail me a rebate card for 25 dollars off my next purchase. I was like WTF. The woman said sorry but that was all they could do. When I asked to speak to manager she hung up.

The cover presses on a switch. So either the switch has a problem or isn't being pressed in enough to activate. This is one of those things that could be a matter of cleaning and it works again or could mean trying to replace the switch which really isn't going to be worth doing. The repair cost will cost more than a new camera. Best advice is to find a camera shop and get a repair tech to look at it. This is one of those things you have to look at to be able to see whats wrong and then know what to fix.

As far as the pictures if they are on the data card don't worry, they are perfectly safe. You just need to get an inexpensive card reader. The camera data card plugs in to them and then they plug into the usb. The computer sees the card as a USB storage device. So you just copy your pictures on to your computer from it. These also are much faster then the camera transfer speed. Cost is $1 and up. sometimes you get the small ones free with a new card.

The problem with digital cameras is that the repair parts and labor are not cheap. So unless it is under warrenty the repair of even small simple things will come close to what you paid for the camera. If you know what the replacement cost is then you can decide if its worth getting it fixed or just to replace it. It's a shame most of the time as the problem is usually on the minor side but the cost isn't.

Turns off when cover is closed


First don't spent too much mont for repairs, because cameras are becoming cheaper and cheaper and in the mean while better and better.
You could try to open and close the cover several times and hope it starts working as it should. It has a switch connected to it, so the camera can see if the cover is open or closed. Now it is giving the wrong information. If the camera comes on, when the cover is open, that indicates the battery is still good, unless the it stops working within a short period of time.

Have an Olympus Stylus Tough -6000 digital camera and when I turn it on a message appears on the screen that says "card-cover Open" and it won't allow me to operate the camera. The problem is...


remove the batteries and the card from the camera and clean it with something smooth and dry ...after that reinsert the card in th ecamera several times until it is recognised..this happens when the card it is not proper inserted ..or something is meesing with the sensor that detects the cover position...so a gentle cleaning inside will help also..

Follow the steps below to clear the "Clean Sensor" error message.
  1. Open the front cover of the printer (cover D). c2600_cover_d.jpg
  2. Slowly close the cover again. c2600_close_cover_d.jpg This action will move the lever shown below and clean the sensor.

  3. Open and close the cover several times. Once the front cover is left closed the printer will start to calibrate.
Once complete, the error should no longer appear and the printer should resume normal operation.

Note: If the error message is still apparent after following the steps above, contact Epson for further advice.

How do I change the print head on a Xerox 8500?


Hi there,

How to remove a printhead
  1. Press the on-line / off-line key on the printer operator panel to set the printer off-line.
  2. Use the upper softkeys to scroll to the 'Replace printhead' card
  3. Press the softkey below the 'Replace printhead' card to enter the wizard.
    An introduction screen displays the message 'Use this wizard to replace printheads. A roll is needed for calibration.'
  4. Press the key for 'Next'.
    The screen displays the message 'Select roll to use'.
    The system does a calibration at the end of the wizard. You can only calibrate on the defined media types. When calibration is not possible with the media available on the printer, the system asks you to load the correct media. When calibration is possible with one of the rolls, the system automatically uses the correct media roll. When calibration is possible with both rolls, use the lower softkeys to select the roll to use.
  5. Press the key for 'Next'.
    The screen displays the message 'Carriage moving to centre position...' while the carriage moves to the centre.
    The screen displays 'Open top cover.'
  6. Open the top cover. The screen displays the message 'Replace printheads' and the printheads that you must replace. Find the correct printhead number on the printhead carriage.
  7. Press the front of the printhead cover to unlock the cover.
  8. Open the printhead cover.
  9. Pull out the printhead and remove it.
How to place a printhead
  1. Remove the protective tape from the new printhead.
    Do not touch the contact and nozzle areas of the printhead after you remove the protective tape.
  2. Place the new printhead in the printhead holder.
    The printhead only fits in one way.
  3. Close the printhead cover.
  4. After you replaced the defective printhead, press the softkey for 'Next'
  5. The screen displays the message 'Make sure that all head covers are properly positioned.'
    Press the key for 'Done'.
    The screen displays the message 'Close top cover.'
  6. Close the top cover.
    The screen displays the message 'Carriage moving to home position...'
  7. The screen displays 'Calibrating...'.
    The calibration process takes several minutes.
    You can stop the calibration process at any time. Press the key for 'Cancel' to stop the calibration process.

Check card cover- Card cover open


The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor that is on the card cover door. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $100.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Error message: battery cover open. This message appears in the window and will not let me operate camera until problem is resolved. The cover is closed, but the message will not go away. I have re-set...


try closing the battery cover. if you do not know what that is, it is where the sd card and the battery are held. the cover for that is the battery cover. if it is closed, and still not working, make sure its closed all the way, if it is, take it to best buy or circut city or any other electronics store and ask them.

HP1060 won't print


Have you looked at the front cover to see if the tab there is broken? (this will tell the PC that the front cover is still open) So you'll want to go around the edges of the printer cover to see if there's anything broken and a small hole in which the tab would insert into. If it is the case, and you don't want to spend money on fixing it, then do what I do...Rig up a paper clip and electrical tape to work as the tab, making the printer think that the front cover is always closed.
