The sad saga of buggered u/w cameras continues. Check the interior of your camera carefully for any sigh of salt which will look like white crusty deposits or resulting corrosion. If you find same, it a major repair or toss the camera. One must be *extremely* careful when cleaning the seals and closing up an underwater camera. The slightest contamination on the seals such as lint, a hair, a grain of sand or whatever, is all it takes.

Consider cameras used on or around or under salt water as an expendable item. Harsh but true in my long experience in U/W
photography. Was NOT much of a problem with w/ film cameras, but the modern electronic wonders are very delicate.

Runs really good with out snorkels but boggs out with snorkels. What could cause it to bog out with snorkles? Maybe rejetting? If so which size? It's stock that I have now l


Sounds like your snorkels are restricking air flow big time. You can try going with smaller jets but your performance will suffer. Larger or more snorkels would be the answer if you have to have them. Try to have as few bends as possible and keep checking them to make sure each of them are clear.

The clasp to connect mask to snorkle broke. can I purchase the small clasp?


In short, no. But just do as many other do and use a short rubber band. Lay the middle of the band across the inside of the strap, and then pass the snorkel tube through the two resulting loops either side of the strap.

I have the same problem with my 770 SW. The funny thing is, some outlets in my house will allow it to charge, some will just make the light flash. I found your question looking for a better solution. Try all the outlets in your house with the charger, I know it sounds silly, but it works for me.

Camera wont turn on


try to check the battery contacts of the camera...you might need to 'wipe' a contact cleaner to clean it. Caution: Be careful on working with chemicals with your camera. If still no luck...refer to a qualified service tech

Clearing the Snorkel of Water


Step1 Make sure you are gripping the mouthpiece of the snorkel securely with your teeth. Step2 Exhale forcefully through your mouth. The majority of the water should be expelled from the tube. This method is commonly called "blasting" or "popping." Step3 Inhale gently at first in case there is any residual water. Blast a second time if needed. Step4 Continue blasting whenever water enters the snorkel.
