Question about Cameras

1 Answer

Olympus Stylus TOUGH 2m shock proof, 10m waterproof : 8 months old took a picture and the camera refused to perform any functions, not even turn off. [NB I did not drop it or use it underwater]. The viewer screen at back still worked with live images. The camera does not respond to changes by the small dial or the buttons on the rear, or to the on/pff button. Help please..

    I took the battery out for 5 minutes. I reinserted it and it turned on and the camera was able to take a picture. It also let me download the pictures, that were already taken, to my computer. I have turned it off and turned it on again, I am able to review pictures in the memory, so it appears to be working properly again. Many thanks. Doug

    also check not to be left in the view picture mode...slide the button back to shooting mode...

    it was probably frozen due to an error of reading the card or some other value that became a conflict ..like the time being set to 2000 and trying to read a picture with the date of 2010 ...

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."

My Olympus 1030sw is 8 months old and I took it


Well, getting it wet voided your warranty. Remove the battery and card...don't try to turn it on to avoid short circuits.You can try to bury it in some dry, uncooked rice for a couple of days. Water , especially salt water, is disastrous to cameras. The chance of it working are slim and even if it does for awhile, it may stop altogether later. Keep your fingers crossed.

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.
