Re: W1 underwater

There is a generic "all-in-one" housing by Equinox that will hold the W1. Very basic controls, altho if you pay more you can get a custom. Haven't heard anyone's reviews on the housing tho. see here, http://www.oceanbrite.com/moreinfo.php?id=498

Nothing happens when I press power on. What to do?


If it's "brand new" then I would return it under warrenty for repair or exchange. If for some reason that's not possible, then you need to dry it out internally. One way to do this is to bury the camera in rice. Remove the battery & put camera in a bag of rice and store in a warm place for several days. If you're lucky it will work again after charging the battery. Of course this will NOT fix the problem of leaking, and you'll never be able to use it underwater. So WARRENTY is the way to go.

My Olympus Stylus Tough -6000 lost its underwater capability. it gets wet no matter how much i make sure the battery and USB gaskets/seal clean. can it still bi fixed? how?


I wish there was a way I could shout this to everyone so they would all know it at once....ALL SO-CALLED "WATERPROOF" POINT AND SHOOT CAMERAS WILL EVENTUALLY LEAK. THIS WILL USUALLY HAPPEN AFTER YOU HAVE TAKEN THOSE "ONCE IN A LIFETIME" PICTURES. The only real underwater cameras are in a special underwater housing.

I have a 550 WP underwater cameraI I used it for 2 days on land but after a few snaps underwater it shut down and I haven been able to start it since . The batteries have been checked and are fully charged...


Unfortunately, these "waterproof" cameras don't always work as advertised. If the camera is still under warranty, I'd start there. It may be too late for this, but an old trick to dry out electronics is to put it in a bag of white rice for a few days to absorb moisture. It's a long shot, but I revived a wet cell phone once this way.

I have this camera, and there is a theme for it that says "Underwater" is this camera able to go underwater? The lense looks as if.


No, it is not water proof camera so unable to shoot underwater without water proof casing that is another product. Camera must be packed in water proof casing to take pictures underwater.
Click Sony Support link to download optional accessories brochure rleated to DSC-T700 and check AKP-THA water proof casing for this model.
Thanks.
