Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera ?

Not so waterproof?

\015 Hi,The stylus 1030 sw is supposed to be waterproof but since the last time we used it underwater it kinda died... we saw the purple lines on the lcd underwater and immediately aborted our snorkel trip ;( We have been using it underwater for 2 months (A friend of mine had the same problem, that's why I first didn't want to use it underwater, but then hey, why buy a waterproof camera.).Everything was a 100% close (battery and usb connection) so I don't get it.Now the camera will still go on and off, also you can make pictures but you can't see anything on the lcd. It won't show on the computer if I connect it... It also makes the sounds when you push the buttons.\302\240\015\012Is there still hope for this camera? Should I send it for repair?\015\012\302\240(I live in the caribbean so it's expensive to send stuff)\302\240\015\012I had it just for 4 months.Thanx anyway,Zonja\015

Answers :

Since the camera is billed as waterproof I would send it to an Olympus service center for an evaluation to see if it going to be covered under warranty for repair if I were you. The repair techs will evaluate the camera and let you know if it is indeed repairable.

\015\012Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $107.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Waterproofing I have had the 770SW for 6 months now and it has performed well in water. I was wondering if it is a good idea to buy silcone grease from a dive shop to occasionally grease the O rings seals?


It would be handy to have some, but you never need very much to keep seals pliable. Too much grease will attract debris the may cause your seals to fail. Clean the seals occasionally. As long as they are not damaged, your seals will likely outlast ... Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera

My Vivitar waterproof camera will not power up-have replaced batteries but still not working. It has only been used a few times but is now out of warranty. Have noticed there is a slight salt residue in battery compartment. Don't know why this has happened as I made sure the compartment was properly sealed and I always rinsed camera in fresh water after use. Is it worth sending away to get it looked at? (Will cost $44.00 plus postage).
