Question about Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera

2 Answers

I am a US Soldier and I bought my Stylus 770 to take to Iraq, I had no problems at all with the camera in Iraq because it was always dry. I am in Jamaica with my wife on or 6 year anniversary trip now that I have returned home from combat, and as soon as we arrived in Jamaica we got in the pool that is only 3ft deep and went right under the surface to get a pic together under water and i went up to my room and washed off the camera. i have only had the camera for a little under 2 years, now the shutter wont close, the screen looks like a broken tv, it keeps asking me for the date and time over and over again, the camera keeps turning on and off on its own and i cant get and answers to what is going to happen to get it fixed, as far as I am concerned it is faulty manufacturing and not my fault that the camera is doing what it is doing, they said it is water proof up to a certain depth and i never even came close to that depth. any Ideas?

I have the same camera and I bought it in early 2007. I took it to mexico snorkeling, in the pools, i have a 140 gal fishtank that it has also been set up in. I think u got a faulty camera cuz mine works 110% after 2.5 years. I would buy another in a heartbeat!

Hi,
Stylus 770 is not a perfect water proof camera. it has many gap, so it is not worked properly under water, it works under a small rain only.
I think you should by a new camera. Repair this camera is too much costly. Repair cost is nearly the price of  a new camera.

Lower the ISO sensitivity to around 200 or 400.
That's like film speed... the lower the ISO the less sensitive it is to light.

Olympus 770 sw lens cover not closing


Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Stylus 770 SW Camera - causes Power Surge on USB port


Blown USB ports can happen. Most of the time, they still move power...like you can still charge devices through them, but the device won't be recognized. See if a hub will work.
