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).

SOURCE: My screen keep showing the Card Cover Open Error even though the cover is closed

The card door sensor is either damaged, failing or gone completely. You can take camera apart, (7 screws I think) take the back off. Sensor is at the back of camera near the battery door. If sensor is missing, you will see 2 spots on the electronics board where it was connected. Carefully melt solder so that those two points are connected. If sensor is still in place it's probably damaged. Carefully remove sensor using small snips or something like that, with out damaging anything around sensor. Then solder 2 points together. Good Luck

on the above image you can see how I solved this problem. I used the way discribed in solution #2. I first broke off the little box and then added the little copper wire contacting the piece of iron at its left. Now my camera works again.

Ok, you do not have to do any desodering or sodering. Take the camera cover off 7 screws. Where the switch is there is a white box where the broken switch was. Gentley lift the top of the little box and wiggle it so it breaks off. There are 2 little connectors on each side of the box. bend them up and work the rest of the box off. bend the connectors back where they were, take a smal piece of electic wire and wrap it around each of those posts. I used tweezers. No more "card door open" error. This by passes it.

Camera shows write protect when open


When what is open? Always keep the battery / memory card door closed. If it is not closed correct, the camera won't work as expected. To protect the file system, when someone should pul out the memory card, while the camera is accessing the memory, it will or shut down completely, or at least protect the memory card against writing to it.
Before opening the battery / memory card cover, always make sure the camera is completely shut off. That means no light is allowed to burn or flicker. The memory card can also be write protected (SD cards) when the lock switch is down like in the picture on the 32GB card.
Before you can make any picture the switch on the card should be up like on the 64GB card on the picture. 3635bcf4-65df-478c-a04d-92e341d15860.jpg

Show your memory card location


Remove the back cover by holding the phone firmly then slide in the back cover of the handset. You will now see your MicroSD and SIM card slots. Take your SIM card and slide it into the slot provided with the chip facing down. You will also see a small diagram showing you which way to insert the SIM card. Now slide open your MicroSD memory card slot gate, pop your MicroSD memory card into the slot, then close the MicroSD memory card slot gate by sliding it forward then backwards.

Olympus FE-46 shows Card-cover open error. Cover is closed.


Hi, I have solved this problem in a Olympus Fe-20 camera. First of all, I will explain the facts of the problem. When closing the cover, inside the camera, there is a switch that get closed. This switch is like a door that opens or closes a electric contact. So when this switch is broken it does not join the contacts, so the camera thnks that the card cover is still open. Taking out some screws of the plastic tap of the touch screen, you will see, the touch screen fixed with a special conector. With a small screw driver take the black part up, and then you will manage to take out te touch screen. Then you have to take out the the board where the touch screen was fixed, taken out some screws , and disconneting the card from a similar conector than the one of the touch screen. So you can take out this board, and see that you have reach the main board of the camera. If you close the card cover, you can see in the main board the switch that opens/closes a contact due to the position of the cover. The switch has 4 welding points. You will have to take it out, by a tin solder. Then put a tin in the left down welding point and fix with a wire to the rigth up welding point. Fix the boarding card with its conector, fix the touch screen with its conector, and try to switch the camera on. If OK, fix everything up. If not, have a look at the contacts welded, that the problem is there. Hope to be helpfull.

Sir, My mobile is Nokia 6500 model. In contact settings,at first it was set as contacts>>settings>>"memory in use"-PHONE AND SIM. By mistake I have changed the option of "memory in use" to...


usually the phone memory security code for nokia mobiles will be 12345, until it is changed manually. try this code... else, u have to consult the service provider i guess.

memory card not detecting....
First you open gallery on screen. If the memory card ok the first item will be the name of your Card. If it is not found that means the card not detecting. You may do this.:

Open Gallery, then press the back ( battery cover ) of the phone and hold for one second, now see the screen, you can see the card name on first line. But when you take your hand back form the battery cover the display revert to the same as before.
The point of pressing:- near to the lense ( Just right side of the lense) . You know why ?. The memory card is located inside of that place.
This means there is a switch (Battery cover open / close) located just left side of the memory card, and there is a TIP projected in the same place at the Battery cover. When we close the back cover the switch become ON. Here is the problem.....!. The switch will not contact even you close the cover. When you press the cover hardly the switch become contact. when you remove the hand again it become open.
More clarification:-
In a new phone if you open the battery cover the memory card will not work at all. It will detect only after closing the cover.

this may help you.

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.

Motorola KRZR black screen


This URL explains that the blank screen is caused by a loose cable, includes instructions, and includes another URL that shows how to take the phone apart and re-seat the cable: http://www.howardforums.com/archive/topic/963501-1.html

I just fixed mine. The cable goes from the back of the phone (below the battery and SIM card) around the hinge and connects again on the flip-up part, under the screen. Re-seating at the main unit didn't fix it for me (dang), so I had to take off the cover on the flip-up part. Pretty hairy, but doable. You'll need TORX #5 and #6 screwdrivers.

I also saw where local repair shops will fix it for $75 (ouch), but that may be for a screen replacement--which is probably not needed. Opening and closing the phone is what causes the (tiny, flat) cable to need re-seating.
