Question about Olympus Stylus 720 SW Digital Camera

Water droplets remain on lens

Whenever I shoot photos in water, the lens of course gets wet. At least one good water drop remains on the lens, placing a big blur spot on the rest of my pictures. Are there any recommendations to keeping the water spots from forming/remaining.
I keep dunking it in the water, to keep it 'fresh" or flick it. I was thinking rain-x or similar. Or even regular wax to keep the drops from sticking. Of course I can't bring a towel with me in the water to wipe it clean. Thanks for your assistance.

    the oil didn't work, it just smeared the lens, and made for a hard time to remove it. Even the thinnest of layers of olive oil did that.

    Sorry ..

I have had the same problem, and I usually try to dab away the water droplet using a soft cloth (like a t-shirt). Make sure to turn the camera off and on a couple of times as you're doing this, so that the water trapped under the lens cover has a chance to get wiped up.

As for water on the lens when you're still out in the water, and/or without a dry cloth, try lightly blowing on the lens, or lightly shaking the camera, while holding it with the lens side down. Sometimes, even using a wet cloth (like your bathing suit) will get rid of the majority of the water.

Don't put any oil on the camera! It will make your pictures blurry and streaky, and could damage the camera!

Likely the cloth was too wet. Soak any drops remaining and leave your TV off for a week. Yes, a week. If there is water inside, it could evaporate during that time. GOOD LUCK!

My model is zanussi easy iron washing machine capacity 6 kg spin 1400 ,my problem is that clothes are not getting dried, water remains in the clothes, what is the problem .


Your washing machine has a problem with the water unless it is washer-dryer. Water remains in the appliance because drain pump is not functioning properly and laundry is wet.

Bosch maxx Classic. 7 yo. Washing cycles are not finishing. Timer is showing 1 but does not turn off. Clothes are still quite wet. Have cleaned filter. Anything else I can do?


Looks like the solenoid that controls the drain motor is malfunctioning.
Whenever this happens, the water does not get drained fully and remains in the chamber thus keeping the clothes still wet.
Speak to your local service representative and get the part replaced.

Fell into water, still can used, but got watermark inside lens.


You can use some absorbents to dry off the residual moisture but the marks might remain due to stain of the water. So try to use a hair dryer to warm the camera very carefully. Once there is no trace of water, but the marks remain on the lens , then it is important to remove the lens assembly after dismantling the camera so as to clean the lens using proper lens cleaner.
Attempt only if technically inclined and with proper tools.

Keurig Coffeemaker says to descale. How do I do that?


Hi, unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.


Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.


Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.


Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.


Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.


Unplug the machine and dump the water into the sink.


Fill up the reservoir with fresh, clean water and plug it in. Place the ceramic cup back on the drip tray and run multiple brews in order to rinse the machine of any remaining vinegar residue.

Nikon D70 monitor lights but no image. Can't access menu, photos not visible. I am able to take picture. Monitor was working fine on a bright day. I was shooting from a boat, may have gotten light splashes...


Please try to charge the camera completely. Then, after it is charged, disconnect the charge cord and tun it on. This is all I can suggest with the data you shared.

Dirty water comes out when I stop scrubbing. Floors remain wet.


Try one thing... the filter cover must be clicked into place. I thought it just sat on top, but it has to be pushed into place.

Dried water droplets on inside of lens


The camera lens will have to come completely apart, and all the pieces be cleaned. This is not something you can do yourself at home. Because there is water in the lens, there is the risk that the humidity will cause corrision of some of the pieces and electronics inside of the lens unit.

You an try leaving the camera in a dry warm place that is not more than about 100 deg F for a few days to see if the water will dry out. But, I am sure that there will be water stains inside on the lens surfaces.
