Question about Olympus FE-130 Digital Camera
When i turn on the camera an error appears "Card Cover Open". I have seen a solution to this problem posted on this site on Jun 28 last, by bmwrider. I attempted to place a wooden match and a piece of plastic into the wooden as suggested but the error still appears. It was mentioned that htis switch may be shorted! How can this be join successfully? Butty.
I had the same problem after a little plastic trigger thing fell out of the hole above where it says push to eject. After poking around for a while I took the camera apart (remove 7 screws) which made it much easier to see, with a magnifying glass and lamp, what the problem was. A damaged wire that needed to be connected to something. Only the very end of the wire was visible, inside a small white plastic box thing. The plastic box thing eventually fell apart with my attempts to put in bits of wire of varying shapes. When it came loose I was left with a short stiff bit of wire. I took a strand of copper wire (from an old piece of electrical wire), twisted it so I had a small loop at one end, looped it over the end of the stiff bit of wire, and then curved the rest of the wire (about 3 - 4 cm long) so it was resting on a silver piece of metal just below where the white plastic box had been. Put the cover back on and the camera worked. Needless to say, it won't let me know if I've left the cover off, but then it won't work unless the cover is on, so it doesn't seem to matter. Saved about $100.
