Question about Olympus ? Tough 3000 / Stylus Tough 3000 Digital Camera

Open Question

Olympus stylus tough 3000 12mp does not turn on unless the "Battery/card/connector cover" is open. The camera turns off when I close the cover. Does the camera need to be sent to Olympus? A new battery? or toss it and get a new one? I love the camera for water environments. Matt in Folsom.

SOURCE: Olympus Stylus 770SW error message

After only 15 days mine did the same thing. I called the dealer Olympus and they gave me a RAN number and told me where to send it. I got a call about a week later. They said because the camera had moisture inside I was not coverd. The best they would do is mail me a rebate card for 25 dollars off my next purchase. I was like WTF. The woman said sorry but that was all they could do. When I asked to speak to manager she hung up.

SOURCE: card cover open

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.

SOURCE: Card Cover Open

I have the same problem. The card-cover has to be physically held down for the camera to work. I have even taken pictures and because I didn't hold the card-cover down hard enough the pictures disappeared.
I have noticed on my camera that tiny portion of the plastic card-cover is missing. It is the very tip of the card-cover and would normally be angled up to snap into place and hold the card-cover closed. Apparantly this tiny piece of plastic broke off and now the whole camera has to be carefully handled. Can anyone tell me where I can get another card-cover?

Turns off when cover is closed


First don't spent too much mont for repairs, because cameras are becoming cheaper and cheaper and in the mean while better and better.
You could try to open and close the cover several times and hope it starts working as it should. It has a switch connected to it, so the camera can see if the cover is open or closed. Now it is giving the wrong information. If the camera comes on, when the cover is open, that indicates the battery is still good, unless the it stops working within a short period of time.

remove the batteries and the card from the camera and clean it with something smooth and dry ...after that reinsert the card in th ecamera several times until it is recognised..this happens when the card it is not proper inserted ..or something is meesing with the sensor that detects the cover position...so a gentle cleaning inside will help also..

Maintain all-weather capability


The camera loses its weatherproof capability if the battery compartment cover, connector cover or DC-IN jack cover is open. Make sure that all the covers are closed before using the camera. Wipe any water off the camera before changing the battery or card. If the camera gets splashed, wipe the water off as soon as possible with a dry cloth. Salt-water spray or droplets can cause damage to the camera if the camera is not wiped dry as soon as possible. Do not apply excessive force to or attempt to peel off the rubber packing of the battery compartment cover, connector cover or DC-IN jack cover. If the rubber packing becomes worn or damaged, contact your nearest Olympus service center. If the rubber packing of the battery compartment cover, connector cover or DC-IN jack cover contains dirt or sand, wipe it off before closing the cover. The rechargeable battery and other camera accessories are not weatherproof. Care should be taken when using the accessories.
