Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera ?

Flooded my Olympus 850SW while snorkeling in Fiji. I let

\015 Partially flooded my Olympus while snorkeling in Fiji a month ago(saltwater). i rinsed the outside with fresh water. I let it dry out and lubed the seal with silicone. Memory card inside works and all pictures were able to be downloaded to my computer. Attempts to use camera again with fully charged battery just said "door open". Tried again today and camera just beeps....is the camera dead?\015

Answers :

Fiji's great isn't it?! Friendliest people and GREAT diving and marine life. A photographers dream, as long as the camera works.

Anyhow, to answer your question, YES, your camera is dead.
May it rest in peace at the nearest electronics recycling station.
If you even get a few drops of salt water in an electronic camera it's either going to be toast immediately, or it won't take long for the inevitable corrosion to do it's magic and kill it. You could send it in for repair, but that would likely cost more than a new(er) camera.

790SW Problems You mentioned you are on your third one. So do you just keep sending them back to Olympus with the receipt and they keep sending you new ones? Is the battery charger supposed to blink when it is charging? I was snorkeling with mine when it seized up and wouldn't work anymore. I was turning it on and off so that I could save battery power. I guess something got stuck in there. Then it would let me view pix, but not take pix. Then it said the battery cover was open, when it wasn't.

I went snorkeling with my olympus 780sw camera last weekend and was taking photos just fine. It was nearing the end of the battery life I believe and when i went to try to turn it on, nothing happened so I thought it had died(battery) I went to try and charge it, and the red light comes on, but it only flashes and does not stay solid, even after letting the battery sit in the charger for >5 hours. Is there a problem with my battery then? the charger? the camera and battery combined? any assistan

Olympus 570uz is not working and is not worth the cost of professional repair (as told to me by Olympus), so I'd like to take apart and see if I can get lucky fixing it myself. Otherwise, it's a paperweight. Can anyone tell me the secret to removing the back cover? All discernable screws have been removed, but it's getting hung up by the hot shoe and flash. My next step is to take out an x-acto blade and start cutting, so please let me know the secret. Tried finding a repair manual online with n

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

I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the d-390 camera and plugged it into my computer to load up my photos but I get a blue screen on the camera with options of Power off or format. Is the card too big for the camera? it works fine in the other to let me take photos and view them, if I had the cord for it or went to a store to print


Many cameras will not read cards written on other, different cameras. There should be no problem taking the card to a store and having the pics printed or put on a disc. Or get a cord for the 390, or a card reader for your computer. ... Olympus Camedia D-390 Digital Camera
