More than likely you will want to call Olympus Customer Service and discuss the repair process with them. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Mistake #1. Letting a "friend" use your camera. Mistake #2. Believing a manufacturer when they tell you the camera is waterproof. The only real waterproof camera is one encased in a plastic waterproof case.

My Olympus 1050 SW looks like it might have a little water inside the camera. The lens is foggy. I didn't take it very deep the last time I was in the water with it, but I did store it in a cooler and...


You can TRY and dry out the camera, but I can pretty much guarantee you that there is corrosion inside and it will eventually fail if it hasn't done so already. The Olympus Stylus Tough cameras are not very tough or waterproof unfortunately. I have seen dozens of them with smashed LCD windows or that have leaked water.

Don't buy a waterproof camera, cause they aren't waterproof. Buy an underwater case and put your camera in that.

To try and dry out the camera, some people suggest putting it in a ziplock back with rice to pull out the moisture, it's not a bad thing to try. The fog in the lens MIGHT go away, but it will most likely leave spots or a big ring which will show up on all your pictures.

Your camera is most likely a goner, sorry to say.

Once a week, I climb a mountain and shout for all the world to hear...."the only truly waterproof camera is one in a specially-designed plastic waterproof housing. Any point and shoot camera that says it's waterproof WILL LEAK! You just don't know when."

Waterproof camera seems to not be working since the pool.


The camera is supposed to be waterproof to 10 feet for about an hour if the camera has never been subjected to any bumps or rough treatment. Can you say you followed those guidelines?

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.

My Olympus Digital Camera Stylus 850 SW is supposedly waterproof, and shockproof, but when i went on vacation, and took it into the water park, and inside the water. It broke. Water got into it even though...


Is it under warranty?

I would be trying to make a claim against it for NOT being waterproof. If they don't come to the party and replace it you could threaten to sue for false advertising, Contact Olympus I am sure they woulde want to investigate it

Drowned waterproof camera !!??


I would take batteries out open camera the best you can and let it dry out for a week at least!! then replace battery and try again,Most times when it is fully dry the camera will start to work again! ! If that does not work I would contact the company! and even if the warranty is up they may still fix the problem for free or low cost!

Is the Olympus 850sw digital camera waterproof?


You probably know by now that the 850SW is waterproof, shockproof and also stands up in freezing conditions. I am just writing because I am very happy with mine and would highly recommend it for your active boyfriend. We have gotten many great pictures with it in the water and the kids have been pretty rough with it at times.

Olympus also has newer versions of this camera, the 1030SW and the 1050SW. I saw the 1050SW today at Costco for just 229.99.

I just posted this answer on an old Dec. 07 posting.

In case you can't find it, try opening the DC IN / USB port cover just to the right of the dial. This breaks the waterproof seal and allows the camera to open. I think the design flaw is an inadequate volume differential in the water sealed cavity to properly account for the change in volume caused by the lens opening / retracting. The USB cover can be closed once the lens is open to restore the waterproof characteristics.
