Question about Olympus Stylus 600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Dropped in water

My beautiful Olympus stylus 600 was dropped into a small puddle of water for three seconds and appears to have absorbed a small amount of condensation under the LCD screen. The camera worked slightly right after the incident but has since not even worked to turn on or off. All the water was cleared out of the battery pack and memory card (not that there was much) so the only visible problem is the small beads of condensation in the lower left-hand corner of the LCD. Please tell me there's hope for my birthday present. :(

I put a brand new fully charged batterie in my olympus stylus 600 and it still won't power on, any suggestions as to my?

Without specialised test equipment, diagnosing faults on totally dead electronic devices is near impossible. Even with the right tools it can be difficult.

Unfortunately your camera is effectively now scrap: any kind of professional attention will cost more than the camera is worth and spare parts may not even be available. Your camera was designed to last around five years, so all that can be said is that it has failed a bit earlier than it should have. If your camera has ever been wet or has been covered in condensation (as may happen when moving from the cold outdoors to a warm house) or has ever been dropped then it will have shortened the lifespan.

If you are confident that your camera has never been wet/dropped then it may be worth complaining to Olympus. They may offer to examine the camera but will usually warn that if found to have been liquid/impact damaged then they will charge a fee and return the camera unrepaired to you. Otherwise they may choose to repair it (subject to spares availability) or may offer a discount on a replacement.

My olympus 1040 was dropped in water for a few seconds,i dried it out and now it will turn on but screen is blank,is there anything i can do or is it only fit for the bin..........

Solution: The most important thing to remember if your digital camera should be partially or fully submerged in water is to act quickly. Once your camera is out of the water, avoid the urge to turn the camera on to see if it works and instead remove the batteries immediately to prevent shorting any of the internal electrical components. Remove your memory card also, otherwise you may lose the pictures you’ve already taken and saved to the card.

Leaving the battery and memory card compartments open, dab away any excess water with a dry cloth or paper towel. Then, use a household hairdryer set to the lowest heat or no-heat setting and blow dry the camera for 10 to 15 minutes.

Although the outside of the camera may be dry, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. If any moisture is left within the camera, it may, over time, grow mold, which can interfere with the camera’s operation. If the camera was dropped into a chlorinated swimming pool or a saltwater lake, your camera’s components may suffer corrosion over time, and your camera will eventually stop working.

To help draw moisture out of the camera, pack your camera in a bowl filled with silica gel (the packets of small transparent beads often found in various foods, electronics, and clothing packages) or uncooked rice. Both materials can absorb and hold excess water that may be left in your camera. Leave your camera to dry for at least 24 to 48 hours. Once you are certain that your camera has completely dried out, insert fully charged batteries and press the Power button. With any luck, your camera will function properly. If not, you may try contacting a camera repair company to ask advice or inquire about repair options.

Pixel problem, all pictures taken have poor pixel resolution

It sounds like you set the file settings to a small file size - perhaps in order to get more photos on a single memory card. You need to change the setting to the largest file size possible, at the highest quality. The steps for this will be in your manual. If you need detailed instructions and don't have your manual, let me know and I'll lookup your manual online.

Olympus Stylus 600/Digital 600 6.0 megapixel


This camera can be very picky when it comes to the front lens cover... It's not a simple mechanism and has many small parts and gears involved. If the lens cover is dislodged it won't work smoothly, and if the case is dented it will not be able to move properly and this can cause lens problems.

If the lens was out when the camera was dropped, then it's possible the lens was damaged and not the lens cover. Sometimes you can tear down the lens, clean it and rebuild it and it will work smoothly again, sometimes this doesn't work and the lens needs to be replaced.

If you're comfortable opening the camera, first check out the lens with the front body section removed so nothing is blocking the lens cover. Does it work properly now? If not, then expect lens damage to be the issue.
