Sounds as if this is a repair issue and the camera would need to be sent to an Olympus repair facility. You will want to call Olympus to discuss repair process and pricing options. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

Screen does not work, stays black

Water and LCD screens don't mix. I'd say the screen itself is shot, and will need to be replaced. However, I cannot find anyone selling these parts. Your best bet may be to watch for a broken one on eBay - so long as it's not the LCD that's broken, and buy it for parts.

My camera got wet on a walk and now it doesnt turn on and on the lcd screen there is condensation and a whitish light behind.. But nothing works

If you camera got wet you'd better take the battery out of it immediately, wipe the water and then get the camera to dry by it self (don't keep it close to the hot things). If it cold turn to all right, most base on luck.

The LCD touch screen is not lit. Sometimes camera does not turn on. It got wet in a heavy thunderstorm.

It's probably fried by the water. Your only hope is to set it aside for a couple weeks, and let it thoroughly dry out, then try it again. But probably you already tried to turn this one on while it was still wet, and that fried the circuitry. If so, you're outta luck. Sorry! Next time something electronic gets wet, do that but don't EVER try to turn it on while it's still wet.Gotta give it LOTS of time to dry out inside in order to have any hope of a recovery.

My sony dsc-w1 got very wet, caught in a rainstorm and did not have the case. I have left it dry out for 4 days and it turns on, lcd works, can read memory stick and display old pictures on the lcd. But...

Maybe the shutter got wet and sticky. You can try look into the lens then press shutter button to take picture. If you don’t see the movement inside the hole, the shutter doesn’t open, it will take black picture.

Help! please i need help=)

Honestly its hard to say without opening the camera and looking for corrosion.

To do this remove the screws in the outer body and pull the back off. You will either see corrosion on the PCB, maybe on the connector for the LCD cable or you won't.

Make sure the batteries are out when you do this!

If you don't see any then that's not the problem. =)

After reading what you posted again, it sounds like the LCD is cracked/broken and not corroded. Can you see old pictures or menus at all? Probably not, but you can still take pictures I am guessing.

If I saw the camera I could tell you right away if its a broken LCD or not. If it is we can replace it for about $65 including return shipping of the camera or you can buy the LCD and install it yourself for about $46.

My LCD screen shows a colorful vertical line & then the screen goes white

Hello, The problem is in bad contacts on flat cable from the LCD. Cleaning the cable and the connector can solve the problem. If you need more info please advice. ps: this should be the long term solution.
