Question about Sony Mavica MVC-CD250 Digital Camera
I dropped the camera. The door came open and disk came out. Nothing appears broken and the disk and door fit back in as before but I keep getting a "Door Open" error message when I turn it on. I tried removing the battery and waiting 48 hours and re-inserting it but got the same error message. Any suggestions,
Have that opened up in a service center and tell them that you dropped it. they will tell you that the sensor is busted. that will have to be replaced. hope this helps.

This is a common problem with the Mavica FD95. There is a little switch in the drive slot to sense the write protect tab on the disk.
If you hold open the drive door without a disk in, you should see this switch where the write protect tab goes. Try operating the switch with a matchstick a few dozen times to attemp to clean the contacts. If that doesn't work then Very carefully let a drop of switch cleaner run into the switch and try operating it a few times then let it dry. Failing that you might want to open the camera to get to the terminals on the switch and test it with a multimeter.
If the switch is faulty and a replacement is not availble then you could just short(or disconnect) it to fool the drive into thinking any disk is writable.
