Olympus stylus tough 6000

After the first underwater shots, my camera quit functioning. the battery compartment was dry and the memory card showed beautiful pictures, but it will no longer turn on. I plugged in the battery charger, and the camera began to get hot and I now see humidity on the inside of the viewfinder and the back screen...It is 1 year and 1/2 old and out of warrenty...booo on Olympus. Any bets on it it will dry and then work?

There's a low chance of it after the camera started getting hot during the recharge. It sounds like water got past the internal seals, and to dry it out properly will require opening the camera and essentially opening all of the seals to get the water to evaporate. If you leave it closed up, the circuitry inside will corrode.

Meanwhile, there is at least one circuit that already shorted and caused the camera to heat up. There's no way to determine whether anything actually burned out or whether it just needs the water to evaporate.

SOURCE: my Olympus Stylus Tough -6000 lost its underwater

I wish there was a way I could shout this to everyone so they would all know it at once....ALL SO-CALLED "WATERPROOF" POINT AND SHOOT CAMERAS WILL EVENTUALLY LEAK. THIS WILL USUALLY HAPPEN AFTER YOU HAVE TAKEN THOSE "ONCE IN A LIFETIME" PICTURES. The only real underwater cameras are in a special underwater housing.

SOURCE: i let my friends use

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.

How deep did you take the camera? The manufacturer website states: WATERPROOF (16FT.). A revolutionary system of waterproof seals and gaskets keeps water out so you can take pictures as deep as 16 feet underwater.If it was deeper than that, the gaskets probably let water in due to the pressure of being underwater. (Basically it means the camera let water in and as such probably will not work right again)

I have a 550 WP underwater cameraI I used it for 2 days on land but after a few snaps underwater it shut down and I haven been able to start it since . The batteries have been checked and are fully charged...


Unfortunately, these "waterproof" cameras don't always work as advertised. If the camera is still under warranty, I'd start there. It may be too late for this, but an old trick to dry out electronics is to put it in a bag of white rice for a few days to absorb moisture. It's a long shot, but I revived a wet cell phone once this way.

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get...


FREE INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR CAMERA FIRST
The Stylus Tough-3000 can be submerged up to 10 feet underwater and incorporates four preset underwater scene modes as well as the ability to capture HD movies underwater. It can also withstand a five-foot drop and can still perform when the temperature dips well below freezing (14 degrees Fahrenheit; -10 degrees Celsius)
SOLUTION
1. Remove the SIM card , battery, and ensure that your camera is dry 2. reinstall the sim, battery, and if the battery has not been charged or is known to be used, please replace for a new one. 3. Start up your Camera and attempt to take a photo now without using any of the video features. If your still not registering your photos, return for continued assistance.
