When power on blured screen apear and blured image


1. Try cleaning the lens with a soft dry cloth. Do NOT blow on the lens first. 2. You could be experiencing camera shake - if you are in shutter mode and if your shutter speed is too slow for the light available you get a blurred image.

The camera had gotten wet and didn't work until I left it in rice for a while. Now the only problem is a persistent black spot that often appears. It is not always on the pictures, but most often is. I...


If any water got into the lens and dried leaving a spot, it may show up at various zoom levels and not at others. This is probably your problem. This is not a job you can do and you need to decide if the cost of disassembling and cleaning your camera is worth it.

Black spot on pictures - cleaned lenses and inside


The spots can be in the inside of the lens settings to the CCD/imager.
If the cleaning of the lens is done well it can be a speck of dust logged in to the screen and having it on the image.
A careful cleaning in a dust proof set up is required.

Hi, if you want you can replace the Screen in low coast. But i like to say its depend on you r country. But if you think in casual way then a new camera always higher price than a camera parts. So i suggest you visit a service center and tell them for replace your camera screen. It will cost approx 25 - 50 USD. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

After used in beach the camera turns on but no image shows up>


Well it might be waterproof, but it may not include saltwater proof. I think that is the case. If so, then the salt got into your camera and caused something to not work. I would take it in Olympus and let them look at it. It could just be a bad camera.

My guess the lcd screen was faulty or the water leaked in there and shortcircit it.

Blurry lens after using it underwater


Sadly that symptom indicates that the camera is broken.

The device's seal protects both from the condition that you are seeing, but also protects the internal circuits from moisture.

If water has gotten inside the camera, I would pursue returning it and getting a replacement from the company.

Black dot appears on screen and on picture


You can open the camera, be very careful to discharge or avoid the flash, IT HURTS!. From there, you can access the LCD assembly, if you take that off, you should be able to access the back of the lens. On the lens is a CCD assembly that is fastened down usually by star screws. The dot might be on the CCD, you can try cleaning that, or else if you remove the CCD that gives you access to the back part of the lens.
Good luck!
