My Olympus 1030sw is 8 months old and I took it

\015 My camera got wet somehow today. In Thailand in less than a meter of water now it not turn on or anything ?\015\012Can I open upand leave in sun to dry out or is there a warranty repair center in krabi Thailand as it is only 8 months old and not sure what to do ? Thanks\015

Answers :

Well, getting it wet voided your warranty. Remove the battery and card...don't try to turn it on to avoid short circuits.You can try to bury it in some dry, uncooked rice for a couple of days. Water , especially salt water, is disastrous to cameras. The chance of it working are slim and even if it does for awhile, it may stop altogether later. Keep your fingers crossed.
The post by typrice is almost hilarious. This Olympus Stylus 1030 SW is supposed to be a WATERPROOF camera down to 10 meters, however reading the 82 + posts here < http://reviews.photographyreview.com/blog/olympus-stylus-1030-sw-review/# >, and my own recent LEAKING disaster, will quickly give you the indelible impression that this camera is
C R A P !!! $400 THROWN AWAY. Getting this camera very wet is exactly what it was supposed to do, however just like many things, the reality is far from the adversting psycho-babble.

My canon rebel xsi was working a month ago. Today I took it out from the case and found it was not reading the card (8gd transand). It had been working fine until last time I used it mid of April. Thought it was a card problem, I went out to buy a new one (8gb sdhc), put it in and it asked for reformat. Proceed to reformat the card, but it says it can't reformat it and ask to change the card. Put in the old card (which was loaded with picture I previouly took), it asks the same thing. I'm 100% s

Olympus FE-270 Hello, my daughter dropped her Olympus FE-270 and it won't work properly ow. It seems to take photos indoors but if you take an outdoor photo the screen turns white like it's over exposed and now when you turn the power button on the lens moves in and out but then it turns itself off. I have tried recharging the batteries to test if the problem is with the batteries, but it makes no difference. It's about 6 months old, do you think it can be repaired? Thanks Robyn

So, I've had an Olympus fe-230 for almost two years now. This camera was sent in for repair under warranty about four months after purchase (August '07), because I got caught in a rain storm with it and it fizzled. Olympus fixed it up for me, and I haven't had problems since then. It is possible I may have dropped the camera at some point since then, but I really don't remember doing so. Anyway, the problem: the camera was working just fine this Wednesday night, I took pictures, it was running o

I have a Casio Watch module #1189. It is a digital alarm chronograph. The battery went dead while sitting in a drawer for many months -maybe a couple years! So I replaced it with the same battery #CR2016. Now it still has no display. I double-checked the polarity and it is correct. I took the battery out and then replaced it several times. I checked the battery with a voltmeter -it reads 3V. The watch is clean inside, with no sign of corrosion like from a leaking battery, etc. The old b

I Have an Olympus FE-340 and twice now I have lost all my pictures off of the memory card.

I have an Olympus FE-370. The USB cable no longer fits in the camera, it's like something is blocking it. It worked before. I don't want to force it. This camera is only 4 months old and we've only uploaded pictures from it twice.

I need to know if the USB fits into the computer and the end that fits into the camera is a 4 pin or 6 pin firewire possibly? The pins could have been bent so slightly that it won't make a connection. They can be so frustrating so take your time and ... Olympus FE-370 Digital Camera

My daughter dropped her sister's Nikon Coolpix S560 in the sanddunes today with the lens open. It still took pictures after that but the lens wouldn't close. Now it opens and closes and makes a grating noise like it's trying to focus, then it shuts down. Help! It is only 2 months old..

It seems that some sand particles are lodged between the lens casing and the camera's body. and when it finds that there is resistence in moving the lens, it shuts down. Use somethig that sucks, like the vacuum cleaner to **** the sand particles out. ... Digital Cameras

The camera is 2 years old, when turning on the power it goes to the date set,you can change the year, then it slides over to the month, but seems froze up, then the camera resets itself, if you skip the date set up, it shows a view on the lcd, but can't take a picture, and the camera resets again. My son borrowed it and took pictures snorkeling, so it may have gotten wet, but the lcd screen is not distorted as it was a year ago when I got water in it.

Lens error When I turn on Nikon Cool Pix S230, it tries to adjust the lens for a little bit then it says lens error.  It is only a few months old.  I think what caused the problem was the last time I took  a picture there was a strobe light in the background which caused the picture to look funny.  Then a few days later when I tried to work the camera I got this problem.  thank you!
