Question about Olympus Stylus 790SW Digital Camera
I took it to the ocean and it worked fine for days, then it stopped. No response to anything. I opened it up (when dry) and I saw no moisture or condensation inside.
I did notice later that the little tab that keeps the battery door closed was sticking, so it's possible that some sea water seeped in.
What are the options on repair at this point? Could the battery be what was damaged versus something inside? Is a repair of it at this point too expensive?
I would definitely try a new battery first, and before you do that you should clean the battery contacts. If this doesn't work you should have it looked at by an authorized service technician, but I will say that digital camera repairs often exceed the value of the camera. I hope this helps!
