You can glue the end of a toothpick into the sensor, or do some quick surgery on the circuit board.
From: http://www.digitalcamera-hq.com/digital-cameras/olympus-fe130_question.html?qid=7535 " Overriding the electrical system: Theelectrical
parts of the switch are soldered to the camera body with 2soldering
points, on LH and RH of the switch, if you look at the bottomside of
the camera (lift up the little black plastic sheet that coversone
soldering point). i left the switch in place and connected the
2soldering points with a small copper thread from an
ordinarymulti-thread electrical cable, using a fine pointed 15W
soldering iron(5 Euros). i dont know if this action damages the camera
and dont knowthe function of the switch, but my FE-140 is working again
i forgot to mention the first steps: Removethe camera back
by removing all 7 screws on the camera body. Pull offthe back
carefully. It is 1 loose plastic piece. Then you are able seethe switch
environment (i needed a loupe)."
The problem is a broken micro switch. If you are familiar with soldering on micro circuits you can get the part from Olympus it is called a card cover switch. Otherwise, send it into an authorized Olympus shop.

Hi there! Let me give you the steps on how to insert the sim card on your phone. First,kindly switch off the power and disconnect the charger and any other device before removing the covers. Avoid touching electronic components while changing the covers. Always store and use the device with the covers attached.The SIM card and its contacts can be easily damaged by scratches or bending, so becareful when handling, inserting, or removing the card. For you to be able to remove the back cover is that you have the press the back part of the phone gently and slide down the back plate of your phone.And after that kindly remove the cover and the battery.Please open the SIM card holder and insert the SIM card into the holder with the bevelled corner facing down and the contact surface area facing toward the contacts of the device. Close the SIM card holder. Line up the battery contacts, and insert the battery. Replace the back cover. That's it! Thanks!

The problem I had experienced with the Door not opening easily will be resolved by removing the micowave oven top cover with a tamper proof torx head, replacing the door switch and reinstalling the top cover.
I have a similar problem.. I recently found out it mostly happened when I was squeezing the right side of the camera or touching the card slot cover in some way... and I discovered that the camera turns off when you open the card slot cover, so it probably has to do with contacts that touch too easily and make the camera turn off when you shake the card slot cover somehow. Now that I know the source I'll see if there's a solution. Hope this helps!
According to Olympus Tech Support this is a Sensor issue and requires repair. They quoted $86 for repairs...to me that is just not worth it, I have the same issue but purchased a good used camera on ebay for only $40! Good luck, sory I couldn't help.
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.
