Yes, there is hope. remove everything you can from it and leave all of the access panels open and then leave it in a warm dry place for a couple of days or a week. The problem is that you have turned it on, this means that there is a very real possibility that you have shorted something inside. Good luck.

My olympus tough tg-310 got wet inside with salt water form the beach now it won't turn on please help.


There is very little that can be done, salt water will corrode metal on contact, all eletronic parts have been compromised, if the memory card is still intact save your pictures and remove it from the camera to transfer to new hardware. Replacing the camera unfortuneately is the only option.

Camera (DMC-FZ10) got wet in a rain storm. Now


I suspect that water has damaged the electronics board in the camera. Unfortunately this is not a waterproof camera. Water will corrode the electronic components and eventually ruin the whole camera,
My suggestion is to claim it on insurance as they wilol repair or replace it on Home insurance. No one puts a camera in water intentionally unless its an underwater camea, so its considered an accident

Won't turn on


I have yhe same problem. I have discovered that the Thin PCB for the buttons are the problem. If you find a fellow with another C765 fault you can exchange the display and keyboard. If I understand Olympus they can repair to a very high price.
