Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My Olympus Digital Camera Stylus 850 SW is supposedly waterproof, and shockproof, but when i went on vacation, and took it into the water park, and inside the water. It broke. Water got into it even though the sealed containment's, for the battery, memory card, and the usb transfer area were closed. The screen is now fuzzy, and it looks like a broken tv screen (the fuzzy part). It won't turn on, and right now it is making this noise every 21 seconds or so. I charged my battery for a long time, b

Answers :

I would be trying to make a claim against it for NOT being waterproof. If they don't come to the party and replace it you could threaten to sue for false advertising, Contact Olympus I am sure they woulde want to investigate it

I hit the power button and it turns green for a second but then goes out. The camera and LCD screen do nothing. So I have some sort of power problem. When I put the battery in the charger the charger light comes on for about a 10seconds but then goes out (suggesting that the battery is fully charged). Is this a battery problem (not charging or holding a charge) or a camera problem? I don't want to buy a new battery if the camera itself is dead... Thanks!

The camera was dropped in water for a few seconds. I managed to take the battery and memory card out after I retrieved it from the water. The camera was then dried and I was able to take a few pictures after the mishap. It's been a few weeks now and the camera does not work. I tried to charge the battery, thinking it was a bad battery, but the battery charger would continuously blink a red flash for hours! Can this camera be saved?

RE: olympus 240 - battery is charged, but the message on the screen states the card cover is open when it is not. cannot get past this screen regardless of the number of times I open and close and withdraw the battery to do it again.

The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor 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_se ... Olympus FE-270 Digital Camera

My panasonic lumix dmc-fx3 camera does not turn on. it was working fine one day and then the next it just stopped turning on. Screen is black, lense doesn't come out.

Hello, My camera M1093 IS suddenly will open when I hit the power button only to close immediately. The screen comes on for a second and then it closes. I ordered a new battery thinking that may be the problem. It does the same thing with the new battery. Any thoughts?

Could be something stopping the lens to go out all the way. It will automatically retract and turn off if anything prevents it from extending. It could be the motor or whatever but I would definitely contact kodak. Also could be something like a shor ... Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS Digital Camera

I have a DSC H10 camera. Today I put it in a plastic with a water bottle that wasn't close tightly. It got wet and now I've taken out out the battery and the memory card. I let the water drain out, I wiped out the battery chamber. I turned it on a few hours after the damage was done and the screen is not very bright. Also, now I can't access my photos, but I could earlier. What do i do? Do I have to let it dry out for 24 hours before turning it on again? Do you think the damage is permanent?

Turning it on before it completely dries out usually causes a short circuit. It can take up to a week with your camera buried in a bowl of dry rice to dry out. However, since you turned it on, it may be too late but try it anyway. ... Digital Cameras

My camera just starting making clicking noises, then it would not shut properly, then back, white screen. I tried using new batteries, different batteries, cleaning the battery area but no luck. It has no juice at all now. At first I thought the computer inside was tripped. Maybe the salt water affected the batteries? What is the address to mail for repair? Do I have to pay ahead to look at? Is there a minimum charge. Monica [email protected] 619 593 8035

My camera turns on by itself even with the slide in front in the closed position. The screen then shows the warning that the lens cover is closed. When I open and reclose the lens cover in 10 or so seconds the camera turns itself back on and repeats with the lens cover closed warning. The only way for me to turn the camera off at this point is to remove the battery. Help!
