While the battery should be good, you never know how long they were sitting before being sold with the camera. Clean the battery terminals good with a qtip and at least 90% isopropyl alcohol, and also the charger's contacts. Measure the charger's output, to ensure it's good (should be 3.x volts, in that area). If the charger is good and the battery still doesn't charge, you might have to order another one (check on Ebay for a good deal).
That's about all you can try. Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Mistake #1. Letting a "friend" use your camera. Mistake #2. Believing a manufacturer when they tell you the camera is waterproof. The only real waterproof camera is one encased in a plastic waterproof case.

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.

How do I charge my Olympus camera? I've gone over the instructions a dozen times, and I just can't get it to work. Please help....


You must use the F-2AC battery charger along with the provided USB cable to charge the battery in the camera. Make sure the cable is inserted fully into the charger and the camera, it can take some force.
To charge the battery outside the camera use the LI-41C battery charger.

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

More than likely you will want to call Olympus Customer Service and discuss the repair process with them. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Is the Olympus 850sw digital camera waterproof?


You probably know by now that the 850SW is waterproof, shockproof and also stands up in freezing conditions. I am just writing because I am very happy with mine and would highly recommend it for your active boyfriend. We have gotten many great pictures with it in the water and the kids have been pretty rough with it at times.

Olympus also has newer versions of this camera, the 1030SW and the 1050SW. I saw the 1050SW today at Costco for just 229.99.
