Question about Olympus Mju 790 SW Digital Camera

2 Answers

Olympus SW 790 won't turn on after hitting the water.

We were about to snorkel and when the camera was submerged in water (less than feet), it didn't turn on anymore. It happened before ( my brother had it fixed) but now it happened again. It's really disappointing. The whole time we were at the beach, we weren't able to get any shots because it.

My mom has the olympus camera. I asked her if my friend and I could try it in underwater in my pool for the first time. She said yes, and be careful with it. We did and it worked like a charm! great quality and everything! Right when we got out, i wiped the camera a little on the lense to dry it off just in case no water droplets could dry on it and make it dirty. Then i put it in the case. I went to my friends house later with it, and video taped a 15 second video. literally 15 seconds. Then i put it back in the pouch again. Then, i rode back to my house on my bike with it in the pouch in my bike basket. I went up the sidewalk curbs slowly and carefully making sure it wouldn't bounce up and down and brake. When I got home, I turned it on, and it wouldn't turn on!? My mom got mad, and charged it the whole night just in case. The following morning I turned it on to see if it worked. And it did! I turned it off again. literally 10 minutes later, it didnt turn on again! Its soooo Frusturating! Please help me! I want to use again! My mom is going to kill me!!!!! Please answer!

Water and camera do not mix, water corrodes electrical contacts. I would suggest if you are taking a camera around water to buy one of the new water proof camera. Also salt water contact on a camera is like an acid bath. All major camera manufactures repair shops will not repair water damage.

I wont to download 790 sw pictures to pc and require downdoad program to do it


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I have an Olympus 790. When I tried to use it last week, it wouldn't turn on. I also have a new Olympus 770 that I have never used. Today I turned it on and it worked fine. Then I took the memory chip...


Either the software in both cameras need be updated. EIther by online software update program or the manufacture will do it for $50 a camera.
Otherwise, some SD cards to have conflicts with some camer'a software for some reason. Sometimes using the wrong sd card in a camera will result in memory flash and causing the camera to be in need of software update. Once updated you should be good and should work with all sd cards from now on.

Check the white balance settings. You may have accidentally altered them to "fluorescent light" settings.

Screen works, but the buttons dont


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.
