Question about Olympus Stylus 800 / ? 800 Digital Camera
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.

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.
