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).

Simply force the button front into position by pressing it with both hands.
In case your wont be successfull stick a thick tape at he position were the cover switch contacts the inner cover (opposite to the display towrds inward is a double plastic contact).

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.

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

The description said it was an underwater camera but once i took it underwater it turned off and will not turn on.


Welcome to FixYa.

Before using the camera in under water, you have to secure that battery cover,card slot cover snd DC IN terminal cover are completely closed to prvent water from getting inside the camera and damaging it. Please note that the camera accessories are not waterproof.

Yes, Sanyo VPC-WH1 High Definition Camcorder is a waterproof camcorder, however you can not used it in all types of water. Below are the Cautions concerning use in water.

* The waterproof properties of the camera apply to fresh water and saltwater only. They do not apply to cleaning substances, chemicals or water from spas.
* Do not immerse in water at a depth greater that 3.0m (9.84ft)
* Do not subject the camera to high-pressure water.
* Do not immerse in water for longer than 60 minutes.
After 60 min. of use in water, allow it to dry for at least 10 min.
* Do not immerse in water that is warmer than 40 degree C.
* Do not open and close the battery cover, card slot cover or DC IN terminal cover with wet hands.
* Do not open and close the battery cover, card slot cover or DC IN terminal cover on the beach or at the poolside.
* Do not jolt the camera while it is immersed in water. doing so may cause the battery cover, card slot cover or DC IN terminal cover to open.

And one more thing that you have to do is to chaged/replaced the waterproof seals every year with new ones. For replacing the seals, please consult your dealer and take note that there is a fee for replacing the waterproof seals.

I hope this information will give you an idea on how to use your camera under water.

Feel free to send us your comments and suggestions.

Thank you for using FixYa.

E3- error. Tried to force with a card but with plain paper it still doesn't work


Hello thanks for using fixya

E3 error is mostly because of paper jam. their may be small bit paper jam in side
There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and saying you paper jam.

To solve it
Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder

If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then
Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.
If still problem exist then best & final option is to just contact to any Canon service provider.

I hope this solution will helpful 4 u

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..

Canon mp470 keeps telling me there is a paper jam


Hello my friend,first thing we are going to check is if its a jam inside from a foreign object.So
  1. Power the printer off.

  2. Open the paper support and confirm that there is not any foreign material in the auto sheet feeder.
  3. Open the scanning unit (printer cover) and confirm that there is not any foreign material in the printer.
  4. Close the scanning unit (printer cover).
  5. Power the printer on and confirm that the printer operates normally.
But in this procedure be very careful and don't push hard anything!

DCP 115C does not print


Check for foreign objects, such as a clip or ripped paper, inside the machine.
Open the scanner cover by pulling up on the lower right corner of the cover. Look inside the machine and remove any foreign objects. If you see jammed paper or another item inside this area, gently pull it out and then close the scanner cover securely

the manual states for this problem
"The machine has a mechanical problem.
OR
A foreign obstacle such as a clip or ripped
paper is in the machine."

Try resetting the counter by pushing and holding the two rewind buttons simultaneously ( red symbols ), one on each side of the top cover. Then open and close the film door.
