Question about Olympus Stylus 790SW Digital Camera
What's your problem?Olympus M 790 SW Shock and Waterproof - Screen doesn't do anything when switched on/off. Everything else seems like it's in working order? This happened after taking it snorkelling, would this have anything to do with it? Thank you. Please get back to me via email - [email protected]

Just in Time for Christmas then!
So decisions - live with out the screen- it appears to be a connexion failure or a main board failure.
Or replace the camera - a repair will cost almost as much.

OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!
Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.
Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 80 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.

The screen stopped working after taking it in the water 4 times in a 3 day period. It still takes pictures fine, but the screen will not display anything.
