    I've also had that problem, had it for around 4 months now.Took it to the beach and when i got home it wouldnt come on in camera mode, the playback was fine but it wouldnt show anything in photo mode, left it for a few hours and then when i tried to turn it back on the screen was pink with alot of scratchy lines when i tried to take a photo.. I'm annoyed after spending so much money for a camera!!

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.

I am a US Soldier and I bought my Stylus 770 to take to Iraq, I had no problems at all with the camera in Iraq because it was always dry. I am in Jamaica with my wife on or 6 year anniversary trip now...


Hi,
Stylus 770 is not a perfect water proof camera. it has many gap, so it is not worked properly under water, it works under a small rain only.
I think you should by a new camera. Repair this camera is too much costly. Repair cost is nearly the price of  a new camera.

Olympus SW 790 won't turn on after hitting the water.


Water and camera do not mix, water corrodes electrical contacts. I would suggest if you are taking a camera around water to buy one of the new water proof camera. Also salt water contact on a camera is like an acid bath. All major camera manufactures repair shops will not repair water damage.

Dropped camera in pool


If it does not fire up, I would dunk it again - this time in warmed, distilled water, moving it around a bit, then putting it in a warm (not hot) place to dry but I would probably give it a week.
Distilled water is non-conductive whereas pool water is . . . who knows?
