I have the same camera and I bought it in early 2007. I took it to mexico snorkeling, in the pools, i have a 140 gal fishtank that it has also been set up in. I think u got a faulty camera cuz mine works 110% after 2.5 years. I would buy another in a heartbeat!
Hi,
Stylus 770 is not a perfect water proof camera. it has many gap, so it is not worked properly under water, it works under a small rain only.
I think you should by a new camera. Repair this camera is too much costly. Repair cost is nearly the price of  a new camera.

EasyShare Z712IS Purchased this camera in Aug. I love it but I can't seem to keep a charged battery in it. I bought some 2X rechargeable NI-MH batteries.

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).


Same thing happend to my father's camera (memory card). Seems that deleting the pictures from the card via the computer solves the problem. Corrupt files on the card cause the camera to read system error. No corrupt files = working camera! :) ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera
