    Fresh water or salt water? If it was salt water and you didn't clean it out IMMEDIATELY, then you'll probably be best off replacing the camera.

    If it was fresh water, there's a chance the camera will recover if it's left to dry completely. Don't heat it, just take out the batteries and let the camera air dry for a couple of days. But I wouldn't be too hopeful.

It is still under warranty. As long as you didn't exceed the water depth recommendations, Olympus should fix or replace it.

I am a 11 year old boy. I bought one of theese watches on a criuse holland america. With my own money i spent $20 fof thatis a lot of money. I took great care of it and it just fell apart i was very...


Carnival Cruise Lines owns Holland America as a subsidiary. On board a Carnival Ship, items that are purchased in the gift shop are often guaranteed for some period for customer satisfaction. If I were you, I would write a letter (not a e-mail nor a text message) to the President of Holland America (Stein Kruse)
and I would tell my story to him. You can find the address at the Holland America web site. Tell him what ship you were on and the date. Tell him the make and model of watch you purchased. Tell him you had some amount of money to spend on the trip and you chose to spend it in the gift shop on the ship. Tell him exactly how the watch was treated and what happened. Tell him you were proud of the watch and had hoped to wear it for many years, as you told your friends where you got it and the good times you had on his ship. Offer to return it to him for inspection if necessary. You might want to enclose a decent picture of the watch for him to look at. Make sure you print your name and address on the back of the picture. If you and your parents often cruise, I would make mention of that as well. http://www.hollandamerica.com/about-best-cruise-lines/Main.action?tabName=Sustainability

Wait a reasonable amount of time for a response, 3 to 4 weeks I would estimate. If you don't get any response, drop him a line that you sent him a letter concerning your watch, give the date and maybe include a courtesy copy to cover the possibility that he didn't receive the first.

If you don't hear anything from him in a reasonable amount of time 2 to 3 weeks I would estimate, I would send a letter to Mickey Arison at Carnival (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micky_Arison).

I am absolutely sure you will hear something from either Holland America or Carnival if you follow my suggestion. If for some reason you don't hear back, send a followup to Mr. Arison and tell him you are disappointed; that you wrote with expectation of an offer of some kind of resolution (fill in the number of weeks ago that you started) and your disappointment is that it is not over a month or what ever and yo have not received the courtesy of any response.

I cruised with Mickey and his father on the inaugural of Destiny, though they don't know me. My Wife and I have sailed at least 7 times on several Carnival ships.

That is my advice to you my young friend.

My Olympus Stylus 850SW won't turn on. Thought it was a drained battery, got new battery, then thought it was my charger. Bought new charger. Battery is fully charged, camera still will not turn on.


Link

Good day,

Link above leads you to the Stylus 850SW manual-see page 62. Please make sure that you are using Olympus Lithium Ion Battery only, as this is the only battery the camera is accepting. Using exhausted battery will make the camera to turn off.

If the problem still persist, kindly contact Olympus Help desk for more details.

Regards.

I bought my nvidia 8600gt + 1gb one and a half


hi if you haven't already done so the take out the TV card, then boot com up in safe mode, to boot the com up in safe mode you keep pressing the F8 key on boot up, the resolution will be wrong but what you are trying to diagnose is if the Nvindia card driver is corrupt, if the picture is ok then it will be the driver, if this is the case you need to delete the driver in Device manager and reinstall,

Pls help i have a problem with my olympus camera stylus 850sw, when I would turn it on it says write protect.what will I do...pls help


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position nearest the contacts enables writing, the position farthest from the contacts protects the card from writing. If the slide is already in the proper position, try sliding it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try a different card.

I have an olympus camera. It's a stylus 850SW. Apparently its supposed to be drop proof but it took a bad fall I guess and the side part that plugs into the computer is now having problems opening. Also,...


A "little over a year ago" means no warranty. Besides, the warranty wouldn't cover damage due to dropping the camera. If the camera still works, you can use a card reader to download your pictures and eliminate the need for "the side part that plugs into the computer."

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.

Hi guys, i bought one a year ago, and just got it


Hi!
If your 220 is in portable configuration (runs on 8 'AA' batteries) make sure that the batteries are 1.5 volts and not 1.2 or 1.3 volts. (1.2V times 8 batteries is only 9.6V)
Also check the battery compartment as we see leakage from some batteries which corrodes the connector plates that the batteries hook up to.
One more thing...check to see that the power cord is plugged into the unit with the notch in the plug pointing UP. The rubber plug housing on the sounder allows the cord to be plugged in backwards if it's forced a litlle bit.
Best of luck!

I bought a cote d'azur watch and didn't comne withinstructions


if you take this watch apart and look at the backside, the side buttons are not connected. and there are NO workings for the "neet" time, date and hr hands, so the ONLY setting the watch has is the time. pop the back off and see for yourself, you can also buy these watches on EBAY for 5.00
good luck
