Screen reads card cover open. Looks as though there is a tiny plastic nipple that has chipped off next to the batteries. Can this be fixed?

What model of camera do you have? The plastic "nipple" usually actuates a push switch. If you have the technical ability, you could bypass the switch, but don't try it unless you are really sureof what you are doing.

Will not power up. put in new batteries and unit will not come on.


You must sync the remote. To do this first take off Battery cover of board.(leave batteries in) Then press the tiny red button on the front of the wii console next to the sd card slot for 2 seconds. Look at the back cover for battery in the board. In the battery compartment there is a tiny red button that looks like the one one the wii. Press it and they should sync. Now your remote should work.

How to replace ribbon on nokia 6085 my phone works but screen is blank!


Well, you need to remove the hinges that are in the middle where you flip the phone. The correct method would be: 1. Open the top panel (One covering the small blue LCD) 2. Remove the screws connecting the chip. 3. Remove the chip by removing the connector. 4. Open the battery cover. 5. Remove the plastic guard that's above the battery cover - you can do this by hand. 6. Remove the 4 screws here. 7. Remove the back cover and the chip. 8. Remove the connector connecting the chip. 9. Carefully press the hinge on the left side through a small hole in the side with a thin strong device. Now you should see a pin slide out towards the middle of the phone. Hold this pin in place with a screwdriver - if you don't, it'll slide back into place. 10. Pull out the top panel now. 11. You should easily be able to remove the ribbon connector. Work backwards to fix it all back :) Hope you fix it :)

Card Cover Open


I have the same problem. The card-cover has to be physically held down for the camera to work. I have even taken pictures and because I didn't hold the card-cover down hard enough the pictures disappeared.
I have noticed on my camera that tiny portion of the plastic card-cover is missing. It is the very tip of the card-cover and would normally be angled up to snap into place and hold the card-cover closed. Apparantly this tiny piece of plastic broke off and now the whole camera has to be carefully handled. Can anyone tell me where I can get another card-cover?

Will not read smartchip


I had the same problem but i fixed it. I'm not sure if this will work for you though. I took off the battery door and noticed that although my battery fit, it was somehow off by a few millimeters maybe. I took a tiny piece of paper, folded it and then fit it near the edge of the battery. This pushed the battery exactly where it should've been and then the phone could read the sim card again. I don't know how it got knocked outta wack but this seemed to help.

Cover card open when it's shut


This problem is caused by the little piece of plastic that you flip down to hold the XD card in place. It has a nipple sticking out of it that is prone to breaking off. Unfortunately, this nipple (about 1/16" x 1/8" x 1/8") holds down a little button which tells the camera that the the plastic piece has been flipped down. Once the nipple breaks off, you need to find some other way to hold the button down.

I simply took a small plastic peg from an old boardgame -- a cribbage-board peg might work -- and whittled it down to fit the opening. Remove the XD card and you'll see the small 1/16" x 1/8" rectangular opening. There's a tiny, squarish black button inside. Use a toothpick or tiny screwdriver to carefully press the button in while the camera is on, and you'll see the error message disappear.

Once you get the idea, use a tiny Phillips screwdriver to remove the plastic piece that you flip down. There are two screws to remove, two little metal retaining brackets and a tiny metal rod. Be careful not to lose any of these pieces! Then gradually whittle your piece of plastic so it fits the rectangular opening snugly, and consistently turns off the error message. Then cut it to about 1/8" in length, insert it into the opening, and reassemble the rod, brackets and screws to hold it in place.

Now the little button will always be pushed in and the camera will be functional once again. Since the XD card has its own spring-loaded "locking mechanism" (you push to insert and push to remove), the piece of plastic you flip down isn't really needed in the first place. You can save it, anyway, just for the memories....

Replace Screen on HP6515


Ok, to disassemble - remove four screws on back (#7 torx required). Then remove battery cover, battery, and SIMM card. Next peel the (on mine lower left portion of the) Warranty Void if removed sticker, and using a tiny phillips head screw driver, remove the screw revealed. Next, slide a thumbnail or plastic flatbldae screw drriver around the seam on the sides of the unit, to release the two pressure tabs on the sides and top. Then pull the top away, eventually freeing the bottom. Now, there is a system board exposed. There are three screws (tiny phillips again) two on the bottom and one at the top that can be removed, allowing the system board to be removed. Note that there are two ribbon connectors on one side - I didn't remove these. There's also a small plastic connection I did remove, then the system board will remove to the side allowing access to the back of the screen and keyboard assemblies.
