Olympus Stylus 1030 SW display not working after being in water

I just had a similar problem. I am not sure how it was fixed, but it works again - at least for now.

I had the camera on and was taking pictures when the screen went dark. Same as you describe, it takes pictures, flash works, LED, works, everything but the display. I plugged it into my computer with the USB adapter to see if I can salvage what is on the card and the diplay lights up. Tried several variations, but when the cable is connected to the computer (didn't have to be connected to the computer) the screen worked. Unplug, no display. I spun the settings button a couple of times. I accidentally took a couple of short videos and pictures that I deleted. I unplugged the camera and powered down again (tried that before). Power up and the screen is fine.

Again I have no idea what fixed it or why the display worked with the cable plugged in. It might have been related to the videos or some setting that I had slipped into (thought the display button never worked or changed anything).

Hopefully something in there helps or someone can explain what I did.

Format the SD memory card.
Get the 5 volt charger and charge 3 hours.
Format the internal memory.
Menu button and change to power save.

4100 vivitar has pics and sd card, will not load pics on pc.

Battery Drain is probably the problem
Best bet?
But a Card reader.
And if you have camera software loaded -unload it
Windows does it better.
