Question about Olympus FE-130 Digital Camera
I can not close the the lid where you insert the battery. I tried putting sticky tape on it to hold it down but it still says card cover open.
Ok, you do not have to do any desodering or sodering. Take the camera cover off 7 screws. Where the switch is there is a white box where the broken switch was. Gentley lift the top of the little box and wiggle it so it breaks off. There are 2 little connectors on each side of the box. bend them up and work the rest of the box off. bend the connectors back where they were, take a smal piece of electic wire and wrap it around each of those posts. I used tweezers. No more "card door open" error. This by passes it.

This is a common problem on these cameras.The cheap switch they used to show that the door is open breaks easily.These are un-needed.I don't know why they even put these on the camera.It works just fine without it being used.
You have to take the camera apart,remove(de-solder) the switch,and solder a jumper wire across the switch contacts.Its fairly involved to do this,not just anybody can do it without proper knowledge and tools.
I can fix these for $20.00 and you must pay for shipping to and from my address.I buy and sell cameras on Ebay,my screen name is dealsbywolf on Ebay,so you can see I'm trustworthy by my feedback.
Send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like me to fix this problem for you.Put Camera Repair in subject title.
Thanks,hope this helps.
