Question about Fuji FinePix S1 Pro Digital Camera
I've got a FinePix S1, and it seems that the little sensor that detects whether the cover of the compactflash/smartmedia slots is closed is broken. The camera behaves as if it were always open, displaying the "Err/full battery" message.. looking in there with a flashlight doesn't reveal any kind of switch for the plastic nib to depress. Is there any way to tell the camera to ignore this latch? Alternatively, is there any way I can fix this myself? I'd be comfortable opening up the camera back myself, but there's some sort of latch or catch in the upper right of the back that I can't figure out how to release.
In the bottom corner of the latch there is a little piece of plastic on the hinge that pushes a switch that tells the camera the latch is shut if thats broken off thatll be the problem id shove a piece of a matcher in to see if it does the trick and if so its a new latch or leave the matcher :) 5

Tips for a great answer:
If "Err" is displayed on the LCD panel on the top
of the camera when the "MENU/EXE" button on the FinePix S1 Pro is
pressed, check the following:
<If "Err" is not flashing>
1. If the slot cover is open, switch the camera off, close
the slot cover and switch the camera back on.
2. If the remaining charge in the AA-size batteries is low,
switch the camera off, replace the batteries and switch the camera back on.
3. If steps 1 and 2 above do not remedy the problem, contact
the store where you purchased the camera or your nearest authorized FUJIFILM
<If "Err" is flashing>
1. Pictures cannot be taken because the remaining charge in
the lithium batteries is too low or because the camera mechanism has stopped
operating due to the camera being used in cold conditions.
In this event, switch the camera off, replace the batteries
and then switch the camera back on. If replacing the batteries does not resolve
the problem, set the focusing mode to "M" and release the shutter
before switching the camera off briefly.
2. If step 1 above does not resolve the problem, contact the
store where you purchased the camera or your nearest authorized FUJIFILM
