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.

    I'm sorry that I mixed up the card door to your battery door won't lock shut problem. (refer Solution #1)

    If you don't want to find a replacement door to DIY, then I suggest to get a camera flash attachment bracket to screw on to the bottom socket where normally a tripod goes. Well, depends on the lenght of the bracket, get the shortest, thinnest, and lightest one possible, in your case, to fit and go on the bottom of the camera, right accross the battery door. This is more reliable than to just scotch tape it shut, as sometimes you may lose a shooting opportunity because of the tape being broke off. Besides, the tape residue is messy.

    Hope this can help.

Olympus c-720 repair

No, sorry.  I got sidetracked and haven't really been looking lately. I have one someone took all to pieces and another junker I will probably try to mess with them  and learn what I can, if I can ever find the time.  With  5 working I haven't been under enough pressure to do so right away (yet).   Best Regards, Wayne
