Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera ?

Waterproof ? Only third time in water !

\015 I used the camera for the third time in the water in under 13 months whilst on hollidays . When i got out of the water the camerra was saying that the battery cover or USB cover was opened but it had not been opened at all ! It was only in about 1 mtr of water at the most and only about 10 minutes . It is 2 weeks out of the warranty period expiring , I am extremely dissapointed in this product especially after reading the amount of problems other consumers of the 770SW have had . can you help in any way ? Thanks.\015

Pros: take good pix
\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 Cons: it broke the first time i used it in the water
\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 Summary: I like this camera because it was said to be water proof up to 10+ft.
Not\015\012the case, I bought this camera specifically for snorkeling and taking\015\012pix at the beach. I took very good care of the camera making sure the\015\012openings were closed tightly so no sand or water could penetrate. I\015\012brought this camera with me on a once in a life time one week\015\012snorkeling trip in Tulum (Mayan Coast). I brought this camera with me\015\012to photograph the Cenotes (underground water caves) and after about 2\015\012hours snorkeling (not taking the camera deeper then 3 feet it stopped\015\012working . This $350 camera just broke. I was not able to photograph\015\012anything from my trip because it broke the first day I took it in the\015\012water. Save your money buy another camera and get a waterproof case. I\015\012am extremely disappointed with Olympus and would recommend not buying\015\012this camera.\015\012

good luck
This is why i always recommend extended warranties with devices of this nature. With the way technology advances it is hard to know which models may be lemons. I would still contact the company if your persistent and don't take no for an answer I know there is something they can do for you. I can get you all their contact information if you need it. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do yourself. It needs repair one way or another. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.

Dear Experts: I got the 850SW over a year ago, I only used it less than 10 times around pool or water park. I never immersed the cemera in water though, I doubt it was really waterproof like they claimed. Three weeks ago, my friend borrowed it for snorkeling in Hawaii for a couple of minutes. then the camera couldn't be turned on: every time I pressed the power button, it kept on beeping a few times then went off. If I pre-set to picture review, the camera is normal, just when I change to shooti

I bought your EX-G1 camera to take on a trip to the Galapagos Islands because it was claimed to be an underwater camera. It worked the first 2 times I went snorkeling with it. The third time, I tried to turn it on, the screen was blank so I surfaced and found the memory card/terminal cover open and the screen was completely filled with water. We let it dry out for 4 days hoping it would start, but one of the guys said the battery was bad. Before going in the water, I always checked the batte

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 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).

Went into the water, about 5 feet and after that the camera wouldn't turn on. I have Stylus 1030 SW. I have had the camera for about a year. It was working fine in the water, and I would rinse it in fresh water, like they said, but this time I came out of the ocean and it turned off and stayed off. Do I need a new battery? This battery costs $39. in retail store! My battery is a year old! Please e-mail:Thanks-June
