I just tried opening my door and sticking a plastic pen cap in that little hole. The camera turns on just like if I were to close the door.

That probably isn't what you wanted to hear, but hope it helps.

He said his will power up, but not take a shot IIRC

Nope, that's not what he said. He said that the camera won't turn on.

Exactly. The door (which I don't have) has a pin which pushes into a small microswitch. I want to simulate just as if I would have a door... which is why I artificially pushed that microswitch with a match. And it doesn't work: it doesn't turn on. Batt is full.

There is a pin inside the hole. Are you sure you're pressing down on that pin? Just sticking a paper match inside the hole doesn't guarantee that the pin is being pushed down. You have to look inside the hole and position the match stick just right. All that's required to turn on the camera is for that pin to be pushed down (that is, assuming the power switch is already on).

Yeah, so it happens that the cardboard match is exactly the same width as the whole, just not the same thickness... which is what I folded in 3. Now it's literally stuffing the hole and I imagine it occupies all the space. I'm sure that pin went way down.

No hope there. Still doesn't turn on. I've looked around the house for other stuff to put in and I can't really find something of that size.

I'll just hope it works with a door and i'm too paranoia.

Can you see the small wire "pin" inside the hole? If it is not there then you have a problem.

It does work with the BP but often times I'd like to use it without.

Get the extra door from Mellofellow anyway. See if it helps.
