Hi X,
There's a little piece of plastic on the battery cover, that presses a switch when you slide the cover closed. Check that manually with a tooth pick and the the battery in place. Don't smash it. I have a Olympus FE -280 and it only happens when I put the cheap Chinese battery in.
If you are in the least uncertain, call Customer Service.
Best regards, Paul

I couldn't open the camera. when im trying to open it it shows and error message on screen "zoom did not operate correctly...."


Digital cameras with shutter covers sometimes jam, keeping teh cover from retracting and the lens from extending. That is what is giving you the message. You may be able to assist it by gently pushin it open when you turn on the camera. Key phase there is "gentle". Do not force it open as you may permanently damage it. If the motor is locked up or the lens cover still refuses to open, take it to a camera shop for service.

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..

On my blackberry screen it says app error 523 reset


Hi,

On the BlackBerry smartphone, the 523 app. error Reset error message appears after pressing the Mute button, accessing an application, or performing a hard reset:


To resolve this issue, first perform a hard reset.

A hard reset involves physically removing the battery from the smartphone and then reinserting it. To perform a hard reset, complete the following steps:
1) Remove the battery cover from the back of the BlackBerry smartphone.
2) Remove the battery, and then reinsert it after a few seconds.
3) Replace the battery cover.

If this does not resolve the issue, the BlackBerry Device Software must be re-installed.

Note: The BlackBerry smartphone will not show a Connected state in the BlackBerry Desktop Manager. Proceed to open and run the application loader tool.
If BlackBerry Desktop Manager cannot connect to the BlackBerry smartphone, perform the following steps:

1. Remove the battery and run loader.exe from
C:\program files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader.
2. Remember to reinsert the battery after the loading operations begin.

I Hope it helped you.

Camera felled to floor lens tries but cannot retract camera turns on and off fine, error message "lens error, restart camera" it appears that until lens can function properly and error message is resolved...


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Broken battery compartment door switch


The switch is a micro switch that is depressed(and not sad :)) by a plastic tag moulded on the battery cover. Once the cover is moved into position and closed, the tag presses on the micro switch closing the switch and thus removing the error message. As with any switch, a switch is simply open or closed, Open = high resistance or O/L, while closed = 0 ohms reistance. You can use a small wire to overcome the switch by soldering the wire to both tags of the switch so it is permenantly 0 ohms. This will send a message to the microprocessor that cover is closed and camera ready for use. Hope this helps.

try closing the battery cover. if you do not know what that is, it is where the sd card and the battery are held. the cover for that is the battery cover. if it is closed, and still not working, make sure its closed all the way, if it is, take it to best buy or circut city or any other electronics store and ask them.

"Cover opened" error message


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
