Cracked/dead screen on Olympus 850SW

Hi, When I pulled my 850SW out of my purse this morning the screen was cracked, as far as I can tell the only think that could have done it is my cell phone. So much for it being a water/shock/mangle proof camera.

Does anyone know if it's possible to fix/replace the screen or is it just cheaper to buy a new one?

Hi, if you want you can replace the Screen in low coast. But i like to say its depend on you r country. But if you think in casual way then a new camera always higher price than a camera parts. So i suggest you visit a service center and tell them for replace your camera screen. It will cost approx 25 - 50 USD. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

My new olympus stylus 850sw is not working. The flash settings do not seem to work, and all the pictures turn out either really dark, or a bright white screen. I've altered all the settings, and nothing is...


You could have a problem with the board of the camera. I hope you did not drop the camera. If what you say is happening try to restart the computer of the camera by removing the main battery. It also has a reserve battery and I suggest you remove that too. In about an hour put the batteries back and see if the camera has reset itself. If it does not work I hope you applied for the extended warranty and just send it back to the camera shop if they handle it or directly to Olympus. Good Luck

I have an Olympus 850sw and each time I turn it on it asks to enter the date and time. Why is that?


Most of the cameras with a date time clock have a secondary internal power source like a small watch type battery some point and shoot cameras use a storage cell which takes power from the main battery. This means when the main battery looses power the camera clock will hold a setting for about 1 day or 24 hours. To keep the camera clock set you need to keep a charge in the main battery. Here is a screen shot from the manual explaining this function.

Flooded my Olympus 850SW while snorkeling in Fiji. I let


Fiji's great isn't it?! Friendliest people and GREAT diving and marine life. A photographers dream, as long as the camera works.

Anyhow, to answer your question, YES, your camera is dead.
May it rest in peace at the nearest electronics recycling station.
If you even get a few drops of salt water in an electronic camera it's either going to be toast immediately, or it won't take long for the inevitable corrosion to do it's magic and kill it. You could send it in for repair, but that would likely cost more than a new(er) camera.

Recharchable battery will not charge olympus 850sw


You can download a manual at this site.
http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_manuals.asp?id=1365
It sounds like your battery is dead. How long have you had this camera? If the battery is not charged properly it will cause the life time to be cut in half or more. When charging these batteries you have to let them die completely before charging. This could be a major problem if your in the middle of taking pictures. I have two batteries for all my cameras that way I always have one on stand by. Hope this works. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Cracked screen


Hi

The warranty covers manufacturing defects and such, camera stops working completely etc, cracked screen is not one of those things.

You must have dropped your purse or something must have pressed on the screen and caused it to crack.

I think they will charge you for a new screen.

Blurry lens after using it underwater


Sadly that symptom indicates that the camera is broken.

The device's seal protects both from the condition that you are seeing, but also protects the internal circuits from moisture.

If water has gotten inside the camera, I would pursue returning it and getting a replacement from the company.

Is the Olympus 850sw digital camera waterproof?


You probably know by now that the 850SW is waterproof, shockproof and also stands up in freezing conditions. I am just writing because I am very happy with mine and would highly recommend it for your active boyfriend. We have gotten many great pictures with it in the water and the kids have been pretty rough with it at times.

Olympus also has newer versions of this camera, the 1030SW and the 1050SW. I saw the 1050SW today at Costco for just 229.99.
