SOURCE: "Card-cover open" error message
It's when putting the card in.. typically you put it in and it clicks (so to speak).. if you delay removing your finger-push, it does something to the card and makes a Disconnect, although in looking at it, it looks just fine.. and the cover closes... A lot of people are reporting 'door open' errors. The micro-switch in the door housing is quite sensitive and pressure shifts from your hand on the door can cause it to trigger as if the door were opened. some get progressively worse. One fix is to add a little bit of length to the plastic that contacts the switch, either a layer of tape or a drop of epoxy, etc. This may help (or may not if the switch itself is flaky). Another fix discussed bypassing the switch altogether, obviously not for the faint of heart (or cameras in warrantee).

same here, with my Camedia C-60 Zoom Apparently the motor has some problems. Did you take the camera to the beach? It must have caught sand or other kind of dirt in the lens mechanism. These digital cameras all have a fixed solution if they fail to work: they are meant to be thrown away. The people at Olympus also have mortgages going, don't they? Half a year ago it was already impossible to get parts for this camera, also, the memory sticks are not around any more, M-XD cards won't work with it, so, yeah, let's come to the Conclusion: this is intelligent (it can write out parts of machine code) landfill.

The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor that is on the card cover door. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.aspOlympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $124 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
