Question about Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera

1 Answer

Waterproofing I have had the 770SW for 6 months now and it has performed well in water. I was wondering if it is a good idea to buy silcone grease from a dive shop to occasionally grease the O rings seals?

Re: waterproofing

It would be handy to have some, but you never need very much to keep seals pliable. Too much grease will attract debris the may cause your seals to fail. Clean the seals occasionally. As long as they are not damaged, your seals will likely outlast the camera.

My olympus stylus 6020 is about 5 months old. while trying it out in fresh water, the camera worked initially and then after a couple of pictures turned off and a "reformat memory card' msg came...

Once a week, I climb a mountain and shout for all the world to hear...."the only truly waterproof camera is one in a specially-designed plastic waterproof housing. Any point and shoot camera that says it's waterproof WILL LEAK! You just don't know when."

Not so waterproof?

Since the camera is billed as waterproof I would send it to an Olympus service center for an evaluation to see if it going to be covered under warranty for repair if I were you. The repair techs will evaluate the camera and let you know if it is indeed repairable.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $107.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Drowned waterproof camera !!??

I would take batteries out open camera the best you can and let it dry out for a week at least!! then replace battery and try again,Most times when it is fully dry the camera will start to work again! ! If that does not work I would contact the company! and even if the warranty is up they may still fix the problem for free or low cost!

Dropped Canon digital camera in water

The only think I can suggest is to never buy a camera that is not waterproof. I have learned my lesson several times, but never again. Here is a link that talks about the best waterproof camera that I have used:

Hey bella143,
The length of the video you can record is not determined by the camera it is determined by the size of the memory card you use. This camera comes with a 512mb memory card, and this camera should be able to record about 45 minutes of video on a 1gb card which should be about 22 minutes of video on a 512mb card. This of course is assuming your memory card is empty. I hope this helps.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

You can't.
Buy yourself a new camera because getting the old one fix will cost you more than buying a new one.
Sorry buddy.

Maybe you should check this one out: Olympus 770SW, :).

Olympus Stylus 770SW error message

After only 15 days mine did the same thing. I called the dealer Olympus and they gave me a RAN number and told me where to send it. I got a call about a week later. They said because the camera had moisture inside I was not coverd. The best they would do is mail me a rebate card for 25 dollars off my next purchase. I was like WTF. The woman said sorry but that was all they could do. When I asked to speak to manager she hung up.
