Question about Olympus Stylus 810 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Waterproof camera seems to not be working since the pool.

On vacation I borrowed my cousin's olympus 810 stylus SW water proof camera. It worked fine at first in water. Then at the end of our trip I was in the pool and it started lines running up and down when I powered it on in the pool. So I powered down, later I looked inside and the battery seemed to have a few drops of water. So left it off for 2 days now its saying error cover door open -- reseated the battery and card nothing its just erroring?? I thought this was water proof, is there a warrenty to cover this by chance and if not can this be repaired somehow??

The camera is supposed to be waterproof to 10 feet for about an hour if the camera has never been subjected to any bumps or rough treatment. Can you say you followed those guidelines?

    This is NOT a waterproof camera !

    It is a so-called "Weatherproof" camera, meaning you can get away with using it in rain and snow.

    It MUST NOT EVER be immersed in water -- even a tiny bit for a short time!

My Olympus 1050 SW looks like it might have a little water inside the camera. The lens is foggy. I didn't take it very deep the last time I was in the water with it, but I did store it in a cooler and...


You can TRY and dry out the camera, but I can pretty much guarantee you that there is corrosion inside and it will eventually fail if it hasn't done so already. The Olympus Stylus Tough cameras are not very tough or waterproof unfortunately. I have seen dozens of them with smashed LCD windows or that have leaked water.

Don't buy a waterproof camera, cause they aren't waterproof. Buy an underwater case and put your camera in that.

To try and dry out the camera, some people suggest putting it in a ziplock back with rice to pull out the moisture, it's not a bad thing to try. The fog in the lens MIGHT go away, but it will most likely leave spots or a big ring which will show up on all your pictures.

Your camera is most likely a goner, sorry to say.

After used in beach the camera turns on but no image shows up>


Well it might be waterproof, but it may not include saltwater proof. I think that is the case. If so, then the salt got into your camera and caused something to not work. I would take it in Olympus and let them look at it. It could just be a bad camera.

My guess the lcd screen was faulty or the water leaked in there and shortcircit it.

My Olympus Digital Camera Stylus 850 SW is supposedly waterproof, and shockproof, but when i went on vacation, and took it into the water park, and inside the water. It broke. Water got into it even though...


Is it under warranty?

I would be trying to make a claim against it for NOT being waterproof. If they don't come to the party and replace it you could threaten to sue for false advertising, Contact Olympus I am sure they woulde want to investigate it

Not working.


Seems like olympus got us in!. I have the same problem. I called Service & Guarantee center in Mexico. They told me to send it to them: They will evaluate if the guarantee covers the damage. They also said the procedure about waterproof checking. If there is a sand grain or a hair in the rubber-type seals, and it licked thru those, the guarantee is voided and i have to pay for repair. Good God, the camera is water proof, shock proof but hair and sand proof! hope to find an answear soon. I am about to throw it into the basket if the brand will come with an excuse like that.

Olympus Underwater MJU 795 LEAKS


I have an olympus 770 sw I used to have the same problem... the solution is after using your camera make sure the camera is dry and open the slot for the battery and clean it and do the same for the other slot somtimes youll get small debree in the cracks of your cameras cover for the battery slot thats were the water enters. I use a little bit of vaseline on the rubber pading for the battery cover to lube it out and had no problems sinse.
