    My Olympus 2000C Digital Camera's battery cover pops open when

    ever I make a change in the settings, such as use the lcd viewer
    instead of the view finder or turn off the flash.  Once the battery cover
    comes open and the batteries lose contact, it is usually the end of the
    session and I have to recharge the batteries.  I have been keeping the
    cover taped closed, but I still lose the shot when the cover tries to open.

    I cannot see what the cover latches on to. I am so discouraged.  I got nowhere with Olympus tech support.  They did not respond to email.

Go to homedepot and get a small (1.5" x 2" x 1.5") L-shaped THIN METAL BRACKET used for bracing shelves. One side of the L is longer -- slip this between the bottom of the camera and the tripod pad that holds the camera, with the shorter side of the L parallel to the side of the camera. Push the short side of the L tight against the camera body and tighten the tripod screw, securing the longer section of the metal brace under the battery hatch.

It's not quite a fixed hatch, but it works great for me. The key will be whether your tripod has a mounting pad big enough to secure the L-brace enough to keep the battery cover closed under pressure. I have a Mohawk tripod with a detachable mounting pad and it's perfect.

Yeah!  I gave up, too.
I bought an Olympus SP570 UZ.  I like it.  It does not take automatic photos as beautifully as the 2000C, but I guess they will have to do.  I bought it because it has video with sound.  Since I bought it, it has dropped in price $100.  I like the fact that the camera hard drive can be upgraded through the USB cable on my computer - which I did yesterday ... cool.  If you get one, make certain you get the original Olympus XD+ (that's a plus sign) Picture/Memory card because it uses the camera's Panoramic feature and you can also download some neat art stuff to the Master software.(Don't lose the serial number of the card, like I did, so I couldn't download the software.I threw out the packaging.)  It is also the fastest card. This camera has a sports feature and image stabilization.  But I really like the video aspect. Very very easy!   The 2 Gig card is big enough for the videos.  You will need a card reader, too.

I am looking for one too and cant find one. I contacted Olympus and they said they no longer sell that part. I tried just buying a new camera on Ebay, but that runs about another $50.

The power is not functioning. cover for the battery is broken.

This is a pretty crude method for fixing it, but you can apply duct tape to the camera in whatever fashion necessary to hold the battery cover to the camera. You must have the contacts on the cover firmly pressed against the batteries or you may get errors such as low battery (if you just inserted a new pair)

Broken track

I have the same problem. I contacted Olympus and it is 29.95 plus tax to repair. Right now I am getting around the problem by holding the cover and controlling it as I open or close to make sure the camera turns off and on.

I purchased a second reconditioned camera from Olympus on the auction site for $35.00 and it arrived yesterday.

It comes with everything except a remote. The battery is the newer L12B. Considering the cost of a replacement OEM battery and the camera looks new, it seemed to be the best work around to having the camera repaired.

I keep it because I have the underwater case for this model and to buy a case for another camera is big bucks..
