The cheap, instant way is to tape it down - pvc electrical tape is probably the best for this although it will get sticky after a while. La fa?on bon march? et imm?diate est d'utilisez du Scotch / bande ?lectrique PVC - le deuxieme est probablement le meilleur pour ceci bien qu'il obtiendra collant un peu plus tard. if you want to replace the cover then contact Olympus Europe on this link; si vous voulez meme remplacer la couverture contactez Olympus Europe sur ce lien ; http://www.olympus-europa.com/consumer/208_1562.htm another way to go would be to find a local dealer or two and ask them if they have any C-740 that has a good card cover but is otherwise unrepairable - you might get lucky. Une autre possibilite est de trouver des n?gociants local et les demandez s'ils ont un C-740 qu'a une bonne couverture de carte mais qu'est autrement irr?parable - vous pourrait avoir de la bonne chance. Hope this helps - please ask again if not :) J'esp?re que ceci vous aide - demandez moi encore si non (mes excuses si vous n'?tes pas wallon) :)

Msg says printer cover open. Its broken, but closed. Can I copy?


There will be a microswitch that is operated by opening/closing the cover. Presumably the switch will be where you have a piece missing from the top.

You just need to find a way of closing that switch. That can be done mechanically with a piece of tape, or you could short circuit the switch if you can get to the wiring.

Broken battery compartment door switch


The switch is a micro switch that is depressed(and not sad :)) by a plastic tag moulded on the battery cover. Once the cover is moved into position and closed, the tag presses on the micro switch closing the switch and thus removing the error message. As with any switch, a switch is simply open or closed, Open = high resistance or O/L, while closed = 0 ohms reistance. You can use a small wire to overcome the switch by soldering the wire to both tags of the switch so it is permenantly 0 ohms. This will send a message to the microprocessor that cover is closed and camera ready for use. Hope this helps.

cover "B" should be on the back of the printer. when you open the main back door at the bottom there is a little flap that will fall down, this is a sliht design flaw as you have to make sure that this is in an upright position before closing the main back door. from past experience its usualy hit and miss at getting it to work unfortunatly

hope this hepls

Memory Card Door Sensor


the 4 square areas will most likely be behind the the memorycard slot or behind the actual lense you will have to solder it if the wiring has been broken off.

Card error


This is using the xD card? M or H? These cards may not be compatible as they use newer technology. Get the firmware upgrade and follow instructions to the T. Here is the instructions:

and here is the firmware link, go down to C-740 UZ and select english.

Close front cover message


Well here is what I can tell you.
Open the front cover. Staring you right in the face should be a bar code/number sticker. Look forward from that and there shoule be a small plastic tab, about a half inch long and less then the thickness of a popsicle stick. It is the front cover interlock switch actuator. It may be broken off.
Or look for the opening where that tab should slide into the machine the switch may be dislogded or broken.
Probably that tab has broken off not actuating the switch on that cover.

Card-cover open


Look for the switch on the memory card door of your camera. Usually a small piece of plastic on the door closes the switch when the door is closed. Check to make sure that the plastic piece is not worn down and is making contact with the switch. You can confirm that this is the problem by powering on the camera while closing the switch manually with a toothpick. Make sure you keep your fingers clear of the extending lens while doing this. If the plastic is worn down or broken off, try attaching a small piece of scrap plastic with super glue.
