Question about Olympus Stylus / mju 1050 SW Digital Camera

1 Answer

Olympus 1050 - lcd screen blank, gasket was loose.

Looks like the gasket that covers the USB/AV cable wasn't closing properly - I found water in the compartment. A few minutes later, the LCD screen went blank and seems to be off... the screen is still not working, but the camera itself is! (It still takes pics, video, etc.)... hm. Did I fry the screen's wires or something?

It is possible that since water did get into somehow that it did some internal damage to the camera. I recommend that you call Olympus Customer Service and discuss the repair process with them. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

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.

I was replacing my screen on the SD800IS.


Sounds like you need to also reseat the skinny ribbon cable. Believe this is the one that provides power to the backlight:

I accidently dropped my 1050 sw olympus digital camera. and now i cant see anything but a black sreen with red and green lines running down the side..Could this be fixed i can still take pictures but i...


Hi

This has happened due to failure of lcd controller or due to a flex cable misalignment. When your camera was dropped, the cable connecting the lcd with the main board might came off and needs to be reconnected back. However, if you want to be sure its the flex cable and not any lense issue, you'll need to connect your camera with the computer and check whether all pictures you clicked after the camera gone bad are fine?

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

How to replace LCD monitor/screen in an Olympus C5050 camera


Easy, remove the 9 screws that hold the rear case and pull the case apart,.remember there are 4 screws under the hotshoe base and 4 under the memory door and one under the USB cover. You need to pry and slide the hotshoe base back with a slim screwdriver and youll see 4 screws, remove the rear ones. There will be 2 ribbon cables attached to the rear case, the LCD and the buttons. These pull out carefully with gentle pressure. The LCD can be removed with screws and another ribbon cable connector that needs to be unclipped and then removed. replace LCD, Put it back together and make sure the ribbon cables are fully seated. Good to go.

My name is Jaeyeal Jeung. I got an experience for FE 220. There are two flat cables inside of the camera. First one is for lens related and send one is for LCD related. If you can open, you need to check the connection of the cables, each cable is hooked to connector that it has flip cover. Try to open and follow what I said. Good luck.

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.
