Question about Olympus Stylus 790SW Digital Camera
Bought this camera for my son for Xmas. Supposed to be waterproof so he took it surfing. First day no problems, second day turned itself off and won't turn back on. Put battery on to charge, charger keeps blinking but after 5 hours camera will still not turn on. Is this a cemra, battery or charger problem? Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks, Karyn.

I have the olympus stylus 770sw, charger would only blink..... I unplugged the charger (not the wall side, the side on the box where the battery goes) and twisted the cord 180 degrees and plugged it back in. It started charging fine

Your all in trouble.. im on my third one..a pro surfer/shaper... you must wast it completly with fresh water immediatly after leaving the sea.. the chrome corrodes within hourd and allows the seals to leak. also sand etc gets stuck in the lense door...

Check the battery compartment for condensation...if thre is condensation inside the battery has probably been short circuited...replace it.

I had the same problem. I contacted Olympus and they said one thing to try is to unplug the cable from the charger (from the charger side, not the wall side), twist the cable 180 degrees, plug it back in and try charging the battery.
It sounds weird, but they said it sometimes works.

Remove battery from charger. Unplug charger for a minute, then plug back into outlet. Reinsert battery and see if red LED comes on and STAYS on solid. If so, charge for about 5 hours.
