Ok I have had this problem myself before let me tell you it took about 3 months before I could actually turn it back on keeping it in a well heated area to dry was the main thing and if there was still water in the unit when you turned it on the chances are that the screen got messed up or shorted out when doing so.

I would say the best thing to do is time and waiting for it to dry completely its a pain but most of the time when electronics get wet they are not dead yet if they are allowed to dry sufficiantly enough then there is ushally no problem with them.

other then that you can try to find a screen of the same size and replace the one in the unit or get ahold of polaroid and find out if its under warrenty or if there is a chance to get a replacement or the unit in question looked over by one of their techs.

Olympus SP-720UZ screen turns on but remains black


Sounds like a hardware problem... You may have to take the camera to a dealer and have them check it out. However, try this first:
Leave the card out for a while, and recharge it. Then reset the camera to factory defaults is you can (check manual).
You may also want to check with the Olympus web site to see if you have the latest firmware update to your camera model. You could try and download latest version and install it.
Hope any of this is to some help... :)

Camera screen remains black when I turn on shooting mode


Turn the camera on. With the screen showing, press the DISP button and this will give you a selection of different screen views i.e. squares for aligning shot squarely; black - thru viewfinder only; etc. Different modes will give you different screen displays i.e. P setting screens are different to when you have the camera set on AUTO.

Hope this helps.
