Repair/replace card door Olympus E-510 DSLR
The card door on my Olympus E-510 DSLR has lost the two tabs that engage the catch that keep the door closed. Looking for information on how to replace the door. Thanks!
I found a replacement door on Ebay for $15, and some general disassembly instructions. The specific repair was done to replace an LCD, so I'm not sure how much of it will apply to you. Feel free to take lots of pictures when you fix yours and create your own guide!
Kudos for rocking the Olympus DSLR, by the way. I have an E-420 myself, and I love it.
I have done it, replaced the card door I mean.
I followed the "general disassembly instructions" in the answer from Tom Hodson. Many thanks for that link.
After removing all the screws as instructed, I lifted the back cover just a fraction at the card door end of the camera. I then was able to remove the old card door and put in a new with ease.
I also used the same procedure to replace my CF card door for my Olympus E-420 and it worked nicely. Two notes: 1) make sure to keep track where the screws go because they are of different lengths. 2) it's disconcerting that the CF door is held in place by two small pieces of plastic that don't seem too sturdy.
