Question about Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera

1 Answer

Hi, My Stylus 850 SW door, to where the uploading cord attaches is stuck open. I figure the small latch is bent. What is the easist way to go about getting this problem fixed without costing a fortune. The rest of the camera works great. With the door open it prevents me from being able to submerge the camera. Thanks, Brett

This is a tough one as if the camera is opened then the seals are to be reset in proper order. But at the same time the bend latch seems to me as from the inside which might require the camera to be opened out. If by any chance the latch can be straightened using a flat metal against the latch , by applying pressure on it so as to bring the latch to alignment with the port hole , then it can be fixed.
The tip is that since this latch seems to be bend on the inside and so has shifted in a diagonal manner, the door latch must be pulled out with the same angle it had been displaced, Now this is quite technical as the part also is fragile and higher pressure might damage the door or latch.
The final option is to somehow plug using a rubber seal.

Exterior door stuck closed manually retract ****** remove knobs KWIKSET


You will probably need to replace the latch assembly. There is a small rivet that holds part of the latch together, and it also acts as a pivot point for a small piece that retracts the latch. If it gets bent, the latch won't retract fully, but you might be able to push it back and get the door open.

Oven latch will not open


Sometimes the latch arm is bent causing the latch release not to clear the hook on the door. If the arm goes under the front it is probably bent. Carefully pull the arm back toward the locked position and try to bend it back a small amount and see if the door will open after moving the arm back to the open position. If that fails sometimes you can insert a bent coat hanger between the door and the latch hook and move the latch enough to unlock the door. I hope this helps

Someone backed into my 1997 volvo 850 and the hood wouldn't open. There was no damage to the hood. Happened again. What is that and how to I open my hood?


IF WORSE GETS TO WORSE I BELIEVE YOU MAY CRAL IN THRU TILTING THE REAR SEATS FORWARD AND CRAWLING IN AND YOULL SEE THE MECHANISIM AND TAKE A SCREW DRIVER AND PRY IT OPEN. THEN ONCE OPEN CHECK FOR ANY MINIMAL DAMAGE OR ANY BENT LATCHES, IF SO CLOSE IT , BUT DONT SHUT IT JUST CHECK WHATS RUBBING AND THE LATCH OPERATION YOU MAY NOT SEE IT BUT SOMETHING IS BENT AND ITS CAUSING TO NOT POP OPEN BY IT SELF. GOOD LUCK

Door won't close. The door was stuck and now it won't close tight.


If you used force to push it shut when it was stuck open, then you may have bent a hinge. Another possibility is that something fell into the hinge mechanism on one side and is jamming it.

On the other hand, if it was stuck shut, you could have a problem with the door latch.

05 tacoma tailgate latch stuck


I had the same problem. I figure that dirt/rust may have accumulated inside the latching mechanism. I was able to fix it using the following steps.
1 - Remove the plastic cap that covers the top of the gate.
2 - Remove as many of the remaining torx bolts from the inside cover (you will need to do this to get inside the gate).
3 - Next, try and get some WD40 on/in the latch mechanism.
4 - Using a large screwdriver, you will need to pry the lever attached to the cable in order to release the latch.

Not a pretty process but it seemed to work. I give the latches a good lubrication frequently now, until I get around to replacing them.

A string from one of the clothes got stuck in the lock mechanism and the door won't unlock


If the door fails to unlock after 11 attempts, you will see the "LO" code. If this was caused by foreign matter infiltrating the latch area try this. Open the dispenser lid and look for a plastic cord tucked away towards the front. It's the same as "weed whacker" cord. Grasp this cord firmly and pull it from right to left (away from the latch). This is the emergency cord to open the door after a latch failure. remove any debris that would hamper the operation of the latch assembly. Close the door and try going into a spin cycle to check the door lock operation.
