Question about Olympus Stylus 720 SW Digital Camera
I have had my olympus 720 for about 3-4 yrs now, and it has been snokling a few times with me, and survived each time.
I just went again on the weekend, and dont think i went deeper than 3 m, but now, the screen turns on when i put the battery in, but none of the buttons work. I cant turn it off, or take photos.
im goin to try and air it out somehow today, just in case water got it
After 3-4 years use including a few snorkelling sessions, the camera seals are going to be way past their best; especially true if you've occasionally stretched that 3m limit by much. If you're like me you definitely will have, my camera is rated to 5m and I regularly snorkel past 10m but I regularly replace and lubricate the seals.
You probably had a leak, if it was freshwater the camera may survive after drying out, but seawater always leaves corrosive and conductive salt deposits behind.
If the camera recovers then take the hint and either get the seals replaced or upgrade to a camera specifically for aquatic use.
