Question about Olympus Stylus 800 / ? 800 Digital Camera

Open Question

Olympus Stylus 800 Camera , card cover open.

Basically, since April 14th 2009, My camera hasen't been working properly.
It says the, ''Card cover'' Is open. Whenever I turn it on, now I've seen the Copper, method. I just wanted to know, how do I do that? WIth My model type of camera. I didn't see a plastic piece fall out or anything, I just know one day it just decided not to work. I've done everything, Banging it against walls ( I was fustrated ) Blew it in, stuck pieces inside of every hole I could find. I'm just clueless right now.

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).

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: XD mem card max for olympus D-560 Zoom

I hope this helps, I called Olympus for the exact same reason. The tech told me that the highest for the older D560 was 512mb. The other DX cards are for the newer models (same name!) that are 3D etc. effects of the newer models.

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.

Have an Olympus Stylus Tough -6000 digital camera and when I turn it on a message appears on the screen that says "card-cover Open" and it won't allow me to operate the camera. The problem is...

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..

Format Stylus 500

Press >menu< button, select >mode< select >card< select >format< select >yes< press >ok< (menu button)
During formatting DO NOT open battery cover, card cover, or plug in AC adapter.
Make sure you have all your files saved on your computer or elsewhere before formatting your card, since all images will be deleted.#
Hope that helps

XD card error

What happens, is the file is corrupted when the camera shuts down while saving the picture. If you have a card reader try saving the pictures on the computer using the reader. You may have to reformat the card (in the camera).
