Having problems with your Olympus Software VG-120 Digital Camera ?

Water damage olympus vg-120


\015 Is this repairable/recoverable. Bought this camera less than a week ago. Managed to spill nail polish remover over the screen. Screen damaged - camera will still turn on and take pictures but visible damage on screen. Put in warm place in bowl of rice - any suggestions?\015

Answers :

If the only your trying to fix is the screen there is a screen restoration kit you can buy for camera's almost the same thing you can for headlights on cars you will pay a little bit for it though but its def worth it and it should take about anything of your screen for you.

Screen problems My Olympus FE-4000 12 MP digital camera with 4X wide angle optical zoom was working fine until one afternoon when I went to take a picture. The camera was never dropped into water, or exposed to heavy outdoor elements. The problem is that the screen in general has some white patches and two large black patches over it so you can only see a small part of the image. My question to you is, what seems to be the problem, and how can it be fixed? There is no damage to the outer surface

My Sony Cybershot Camera was dropped in water accidentally the other day. I have let it dry out as much as possible for 2 days. When I tried to use it, the camera still takes pics as it did before but it keeps saying "insert memory card" Anything more I can do? Is it worth trying it on with Sony as it's only 4 months old. Only thing is that I know that water damage is not normally covered. If they see water damage, will they bill me for the repair?

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 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.

My Olympus fe 3010 became flooded with salt water when the underwater housing failed. Olympus service won't even look at it. Is there a way to dismantle the camera and clean the contacts. At this point I have nothing to lose.


Cleaning the contacts is only one part of the problem. Salt water is corrosive and it got into the moving parts and also coated the lens elements. Your camera is toast and that's why Olympus won't bother with it.....they would have to replace virtual ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Water damage? A little bit of water got on my camera. Once I noticed, I wiped it off and tried to turn the camera on and it wouldn't. Once I got home, I charged the battery, thinking maybe that would help. I put the battery back in and now there is an orange/red light on the front of the camera that won't go away, and it still won't turn on.
