My OLYMPUS C5060 WIDE ZOOM digital camera fell in to the sea, in its pouch, but still got slightly wet. Local service agents answer was: buy a new one. How can I open the camera? I have removed all screws from the case but it will not come loose around the external flash support, I dont see any way to remove the external flash support.


Answers :

Having been exposed to salt water this long they were right.There is probably a pin you need to remove with the back off holding the flash.It may have to be pulled out with needlenose pliers or it may be springloaded and need one of the ends pushed down.Spring loaded best image I can give.
\012'--=======--' The two ends are solid.The pin is spring loaded pushing out.The smaller tip is the part which pulls open and is spring loaded.The = is the pin main body.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Greg

How to disassemble the camera? I have unscrewed all the visible screws, but still cannot take off the back cover. It seems to be still fixed near the external flash plug. In the LX2 section there is a guide, but it starts with the words "remove the back cover". Are there any differences in the way how LX2 and LX3 are assembled?

I have a canon rebel xti with an 18 to 55 lens .. I recently bought an external flash to sit in the hot shoe .. now when I removed the flash from the hot shoe .. the cameras own flash will not pop up and work... I can manually pop the flash but it still will not work..  I thought that when I bought the flash at the camera store the sales person turned off something on the camera for the new flash to work.. is there something I need to change in the menus to get the cameras own flash to work.....

Have a lumix DMC-FC20 and began to hear a noise as if there was a loose part... I am familiar with the stability mechanism and was aware camera movement can result in a noise that sounds similar to a loose part but the noise continued even if the camera was powered-off. My curiosity got the best of me and I removed the screws on the casing and opened the back to confirm that there was a loose screw approximately 1/4" long. I have no idea where the screw came from since I could not easily remove

While at the beach, someone threw a frizbee at my wife and she dropped the camera in the sand. We were careful as we could be picking it up to avoid entrance of sand into the camera. It worked fine until the next day and the lens opened and stuck. I opened the case to remove and sand that entered the camera. While removing the flash it went off and now the camera doesn't even turn on. I assume something touched and blew a fuse. Is this fixable and if so where do I start?

Olympus D-600L Lense tries to open & shutter won't work. Firstly, Batteries are properly charged. The Zoom works, the SLR viewer is closed. When holding down the button it sounds like the camera wants to activate the shutter. I tried to remove the case but even after removing all the screws I still could not loosen the case. Any help would be appreciated.

I bought a replacement LCD screen for my Nikon S3000 camera, but when I remove the back case, the connector for the LCD is under the silver plate. I can't figure out how to get the plate off to reach the connector so I can install the new LCD. I've removed screws, but it still lifts only halfway. Is there some kind of trick I'm not seeing to get this thing open?

I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing.

Lense Issue When I turn on the camera the lense started to move out and then got stuck. How when you turn it on it just trys to adjust the lense but again it is stuck.

External Flash I set my Epson 3100z camera to manual mode and set up the camera for external flash. I manually set the shutter speed to 1/60 sec and the aperture to F4. I also set my SunPak flash to F4. My exposures seem pretty good. However when I review the various photo info's, the aperture reading is F5 or F4.8 not the F4 I set. Why is this? Anyone experienced this? The shutter speed are also not always what I set on the camera.

Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking.
