Sounds like a hardware issue, and the switch for the door is not being opened when the door is. Here is a link to the manual, and the service for the camera info is there as well.

Why does a 5816 door sensor in my Lynx 5200 system send a fault message even when system is disarmed?

Jon, I am not 100% sure what you are asking about. However, is the keypad shows 'Ready to Arm' when the door is closed and then shows the front door in fault when you open it, then that is how it is supposed to work. When the system sees a door open or movement, then it shows on the zone in fault on the leypad. If you were to try and set the alarm with the door open, the system can tell you which zone needs to be corrected before you can set it. Usually it is as simple as closing a door or window. When the door is closed and it says that it is ready to arm, you are good to set and leave. Opening the door with the alarm off or on will report on the keypad.

Camera shows write protect when open

When what is open? Always keep the battery / memory card door closed. If it is not closed correct, the camera won't work as expected. To protect the file system, when someone should pul out the memory card, while the camera is accessing the memory, it will or shut down completely, or at least protect the memory card against writing to it.
Before opening the battery / memory card cover, always make sure the camera is completely shut off. That means no light is allowed to burn or flicker. The memory card can also be write protected (SD cards) when the lock switch is down like in the picture on the 32GB card.
Before you can make any picture the switch on the card should be up like on the 64GB card on the picture. 3635bcf4-65df-478c-a04d-92e341d15860.jpg

'user door open' error -where is the 'user door'? We have opened and closed all the parts we can find that open and close.

the door you open to put the cartridge. If the door is closed and you still get the message, it means the door is not activating the microswitch when the door is closed. There must be a tab on the door which presses the switch.

My screen keep showing the Card Cover Open Error even though the cover is closed. What can i do It says "Card Over Open" when it 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

"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).
