The cheap, instant way is to tape it down - pvc electrical tape is probably the best for this although it will get sticky after a while. La fa?on bon march? et imm?diate est d'utilisez du Scotch / bande ?lectrique PVC - le deuxieme est probablement le meilleur pour ceci bien qu'il obtiendra collant un peu plus tard. if you want to replace the cover then contact Olympus Europe on this link; si vous voulez meme remplacer la couverture contactez Olympus Europe sur ce lien ; another way to go would be to find a local dealer or two and ask them if they have any C-740 that has a good card cover but is otherwise unrepairable - you might get lucky. Une autre possibilite est de trouver des n?gociants local et les demandez s'ils ont un C-740 qu'a une bonne couverture de carte mais qu'est autrement irr?parable - vous pourrait avoir de la bonne chance. Hope this helps - please ask again if not :) J'esp?re que ceci vous aide - demandez moi encore si non (mes excuses si vous n'?tes pas wallon) :)

Hi, I have an Oly SP-510 UZ camera and I have a problem with it, don't recognize the XD 1GB card. I tryed many cards (2GB and 1GB) and all are the same, when I insert the card I have the message "card is...

Hello Musat

The problem sounds to be with the card reader of the camera. Most often what happens is that the soldering on the card reader's connection to the circuit board gets loose and if one of these contacts are loose , it gives a card error.

The problem is most likely not firmware or card related and unfortunately opening the camera to check the soldering is not really a user friendly fix. If you send it in , it will cost about $40-$80 to have this fixed.

Have a look under a good light into the card slot and see if you can see anything out of the ordanary that may be blocking the contact pins but if there is none , you probably won't be able to fix this yourself.

If your camera is still relatively new , you should have it fixed under the warrranty service.

Kind Regards

Broken battery compartment door switch

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.

cover "B" should be on the back of the printer. when you open the main back door at the bottom there is a little flap that will fall down, this is a sliht design flaw as you have to make sure that this is in an upright position before closing the main back door. from past experience its usualy hit and miss at getting it to work unfortunatly

hope this hepls

Trouble with card cover

I found the same problem posted by another member. Using a bobby pin instead of a matchstick as suggested, (only because I did not have a matchstick) I put one end of it into the hole beside the memory slot and tripped the stuck trigger. Worked perfectly. THANK YOU!

This is using the xD card? M or H? These cards may not be compatible as they use newer technology. Get the firmware upgrade and follow instructions to the T. Here is the instructions:
