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 wolf9610@aol.com if you'd like me to fix this problem for you.Put Camera Repair in subject title.
Thanks,hope this helps.

D60 error press shutter release button


Here's what I found on the Nikon forum and it also works for D60 Digital Camera.
Get a very small cross head screwdriver (watchmaker size)
A can of WD40
Sticky tape
A good light

Remove the Battery and SD card
Open up the bottom of the D40x putting the small screws onto the sticky tape in order of removal.

You know the camera well, so you know where all the screws go.
Remove the metal plate (used for the tripod mount, you will need to remove the back of the D40x as well, it's only 2 screws)

Now look at John C Ayr's pic of the D40xwww.flickr.com/photos/johncayr/3969534234/

Spray a SMALL amount of WD40 onto the red and white gear wheels.
(Don't use so much that it drips down onto the optics, you don't want oil in there!!!)

Put the battery in and hold it down to make contact, put in the sd card and switch on the camera and try the shutter button. (switch it to manual focus or it might try hunting around for ages for focus)

It might start working, if not move the red wheel a few stops and try again.

Once it's lubed up and the wheels move it should be ok.
Keep taking pics until you feel it is ok.

Then reassemble following the screws backwards on the sticky tape.

Contact failures may have occurred between the camera and the batteries.


Confirming that the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] is securely closed

If the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] is not securely closed, the power of the camera may not turn on.


Close the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] securely, and then turn the power on.


Clean the battery terminals with a dry cotton swab that has a fine and soft tip, and then re-insert the batteries.

1. Be sure that the camera power is off.

2. Slide the battery cover lock in the direction of the arrow, and push the battery cover slightly forward. Then open the cover.

My computer keeps flashing the blue lights on and off,screen blank,not coming on tried to take battery off hold down start button connect to ac nothing happens same problem


Sounds like video card or video cable is faulty or loose. Is screen always blank no matter what you try? Were you getting intermittent screen flickering. There is a ribbon cable that runs from base to lid that sometimes get worn or loose from constant open/close of the lid. Try cranking lid to different positions while trying to boot up. You maybe able to find a video card under one of the covers on bottom. push card all the way inward to make sure it is seated correctly.

How to remove write protection on a memory card


Removing the write protection depends on the source of the problem.
Broadly speaking, it can be any of the following scenarios
  1. There is a write-protection tab on the mini sd card HOLDER. Every time you insert this into your PC or card holder, this tab slides to the write protect position. Either keep resetting, inserting & reinserting until it doesn't slide or tape it down.
  2. There is nothing wrong with the mini sd card. Simply locate the write protection key and push it.
  3. The mini sd card has some error: Go for a low level formatting.
  4. The card has virus: Remove the virus. The link for the steps is present in the related link at the bottom of the article.


There is an easy way to solve this problem: Simply put the yellow lock in the middle of its slider. No sticky tape required, as shown below. But if your still having the same problem i suggest you try the sticky tape.

problem is only that small moveable yellow lock switch is not making, just put sellotape over it maybe two layers needed to make switch.
== Answer == Even though what is written below may work, the problem is probably that on the card reader (if you have one) there is a small switch that has lock written on the side. If this is pushed down, the drive is write protected, push it in the opposite direction and it may fix your problem I had the same problem with several cards but eventually found a way around it. DON'T buy a new one!

Make sure the SD card lock is 'off' and then use thin, opaque sticky tape (ie non see-through; eg insulation tape) to cover the whole gap but keep clear of the metal contacts at the back.

Your card should work fine now... don't know why this has to be done, but it works! Additional info:
Reason #1,
the mechanical lock switch accidentally moves to the "locked" position during insertion due to the poor quality of the switch. Hence, by taping it, you are actually preventing the lock switch to travel towards the lock position. i.e. downwards.

My ipaq rx3715 shuts down after plugging into its cradle. It gets the screen alignment and just goes blank.


I can only especulate on all the possible reasons, so let go one by one throuh them and their possible solutions:
1. The RX3000 Ipaq family has a known mechanical issue on the switch that senses when the back cover lid is properly closed.

When the switch is nor properly depressed, the PDA won't charge the battery if plugged on the cradle or to the USB sync cable, or won't turn on.

Remove the back cover lid and the battery, put them back again. Check the cover lid is placed flush and that there is not any gap between the cover and the PDA body.

Try again in power it on and/or charge the battery, confirming the orange LED light is turning on.

2. False contact on such back switch.

You need to find exactly where is located the switch that senses the battery cover lid.

It's located at the right/bottom side thru the battery bay. Check that there is not dirty or dust accumulated, causing that is sticky such area, which prevents such switch to work properly.

If you find nothing obvious, you can use small pieces of transparent tape (or masking tape) and put them on the internal side of the cover lid that is in contact with the switch (you have to locate first such area), put the battery and coverd lid again, and try to power it on. You can add a 2nd or 3rd layer of tape to depress such switch.

3. Broken cover lid. Check that is not broken in any part or corne rof it. If it's so, then replace it.

4. Defective switch.

Unfortunately is necessary to open the PDA and check with a continuity (or ohm meter) the performance of such swicth, which is easy but usually a technician does it.


You have the option of send it to be repaired, or try it yourself, which will require to buy a switch part, or pulled it from a PDA with possible working switch or the whole mainboard (or the mainboard alone) and swap the parts. It requires a minimum of technical skills to do it.

Best regards,

Why is my memory card locked? How to rectify and delete pictures


Hi Aruna_Devana,
When you say locked do you mean "write protected?" If you look on the left side of the card there may be a notch in the card and a slider. Move the slider forward to cover the notch and you should now be able to use the card. If the slider moves back to 'lock' when you insert it into your camera, put on a bit of sticky tape, just enough to hold it in place, being careful not to cover any contacts on the card. Hope this helps.

Mark.

Battery door no longer locks to stay closed. olympus camedia c-720


You either find a replacement door or simply use a small amount of sticky tag to both corners of the door frame where the card door closes on to. Don't put too much, just enough to hold it shut after pressing down slightly. No adhesive tapes, as they give a messy look and need to be replaced quite often.
Hope this experience of mine can help.

Inserting Paper into Verifone Credit Card machine


Just pop the lid with the button on the side of the terminal and drop the roll in with the paper coming out toward you as you face the machine. Close the lid and rip off excess. There is no need to feed paper through anything.
