Re: card cover wil not close
Unfortunately this is a repair issue with the camera. There is a sensor on that card cover door that may now be missing and needs to be replaced. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss their repair policies and procedures. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

It may be more trouble than it's worth to purchase a replacement. Simply use the duplicate cover that you fabricated. But to get your camera to work, you'll need to find some way to push in the door's safety pin switch seen in the lower left corner of the below picture. Try wedging a small piece of paper (spitball) in there to close the switch. That should allow the camera to work with your duplicate cover.
The base is working as a complete circuit when it is closed completely. Now as the plastic tab which holds battery is broken so the circuit is not getting completed and the software of your camera is not getting message that all parts are functioning accurately. You need that plastic tab or similar tab to fix this problem. Please show your camera in a repair shop and they will get it fixed at very low prize as they normally have such parts with them.
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.
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.
YOU HAVE A BROKE SWITCH THERE IS A VERY SMALL SWITCH BEHIDE A BATERY DOOR, JUST ABOVE A SIGN "PUSH TO EJECT" THIS SWITCH IS VERY SMALL AND YOU CAN NOT REPLACE SO WHAT YOU CAN DO IS, TAKE THE VERY SMALL SWITCH OFF (YOU WILL NEED TO USE A NAIL OR A NEEDLE TO REMOVE A SMALL PLASTIC SWITCH ) AND THEN STICK A SMALL PEACE OF METAL INSIDE OF THE HOLE (METAL TAPE WORKS GREAT) IT WILL BY PASS A SWITCH.

The problem is a broken micro switch. If you are familiar with soldering on micro circuits you can get the part from Olympus it is called a card cover switch. Otherwise, send it into an authorized Olympus shop.
