Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera ?

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?



Answers :

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 the camera.

Battery door hinge or snap does not secure tightly, thus battery contact not good. For first aid I have fixed temporarily with strong rubber band. But that is not consistent. Kadak repair center estimates $90.o00 for repair! I can get another newer one for less that $100! Does any independent shop repair these? Or is there another better alternartive fix?? Thanks in advance for good ideas! Hank

I have a nikkor 18-200 lens. the outermost ring screws into the lens glass ring with a few very tiny screws. the screws loosened and the cap fell off. nothing is broken (though auto focus no longer works with this off) but there is a solid plastic ring that covers the screw heads and i cannot see a way to access the screw heads to screw them back into the lens. it would be a simple procedure if i could access them. any ideas?

The screen on my samsung LT210 dual view camera must be broken. The front view is fine and the camera still works but the larger screen to view normal pictures has been damaged and I cannot see the picture that I am taking. Can it be fixed or should I buy a new one. There are no camera repair shops where I live. I bought the camera from Best Buy and they told me that I either dropped the camera or smashed the screen somehow. Anyway, I need a camera and wanted to know if I should buy another


From your description you would be further ahead to buy a new camera, you stated there are no repair shops where you live, and to send it away would be expensive probably costing more than a new one. The only other option is go on ebay to price a new ... Digital Cameras

Hi. I have a Nikkon D3000, a Sigma 105mm lens, and a round flash ring. I have the settings as: ISO: 200, Shutter Speed: 1/200, F25 for close teeth photos and F8 for face shots. Now I am a dentist and first time user of this camera got the settings from a dental photography website. The proble is: When I take pictures with the flash ring on they turn up black, without the flash ring on and the camera flash on, the pictures turn out clear buy very dark. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

I receive the same "errr" message. The photo shop said it was a bad contact, they cleaned them with an eraser and made sure there was good contact. Problem was slightly better, but still exists. I have to remove the battery to clear the problem, turning it off and back on does no good. You can actually feel the lense move ever so slightly. Camera has gone back to Nikon for a repair. Very disappointed at this point with this. Camera store acknowledged that they have seen many of these.
