Olympus Stylus 1030 SW display not working after being in water

\015 Olympus Stylus 1030 SW water proof digital cameraafter taking my camera snorkeling in the ocean the display screen no longer works. No compartments were open, it had a flotation device attached so it never went more than a more then a few feet below the surface of the water. The battery is fine, it seems I can even still take pictures as the flash goes off and everything, just nothing shows on the display screen.\015

Answers :

I just had a similar problem. I am not sure how it was fixed, but it works again - at least for now.

I had the camera on and was taking pictures when the screen went dark. Same as you describe, it takes pictures, flash works, LED, works, everything but the display. I plugged it into my computer with the USB adapter to see if I can salvage what is on the card and the diplay lights up. Tried several variations, but when the cable is connected to the computer (didn't have to be connected to the computer) the screen worked. Unplug, no display. I spun the settings button a couple of times. I accidentally took a couple of short videos and pictures that I deleted. I unplugged the camera and powered down again (tried that before). Power up and the screen is fine.

Again I have no idea what fixed it or why the display worked with the cable plugged in. It might have been related to the videos or some setting that I had slipped into (thought the display button never worked or changed anything).

Hopefully something in there helps or someone can explain what I did.
