Hi, my waterproof Olympus camera Stylus 770SW got water inside.There wasn't any particular dirt on the rubber sealer,it just little worn off.The camera is about 1.5 year old.It can power up but some buttons don't work.What are my options?Thanks ahead
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!

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.

make sure the battery is charged and if it is and u r still having this problem try pluging it in a pc to see if your camera still works if it is maybe the lenz is messed up and if thats the case i cant help u with that
Hey bella143, The length of the video you can record is not determined by the camera it is determined by the size of the memory card you use. This camera comes with a 512mb memory card, and this camera should be able to record about 45 minutes of video on a 1gb card which should be about 22 minutes of video on a 512mb card. This of course is assuming your memory card is empty. I hope this helps. Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
It would be handy to have some, but you never need very much to keep seals pliable. Too much grease will attract debris the may cause your seals to fail. Clean the seals occasionally. As long as they are not damaged, your seals will likely outlast the camera.
After only 15 days mine did the same thing. I called the dealer Olympus and they gave me a RAN number and told me where to send it. I got a call about a week later. They said because the camera had moisture inside I was not coverd. The best they would do is mail me a rebate card for 25 dollars off my next purchase. I was like WTF. The woman said sorry but that was all they could do. When I asked to speak to manager she hung up.
