Waterproof seal isn't, anymore

Camera leaks when submerged, probably because it's 14 years old. Anyone able to replace the waterproof gasket?

This is the gasket on the case?


It's the gaskets on the camera itself, not a waterproof housing. The battery/memory card door is supposed to seal and doesn't.


Tried online Olympus tech support or talking to them for advice? Although the battery door gasket may be worn out and needing replacement, how sure are you that the rest of the camera is waterproof for your lifestyle? Most quality gaskets are using silicone for long term life. Hopefully, a replacement gasket is all that's needed.


Olympus tech support is no help -- they suggest buying a new camera (there isn't one with the right specs) or adding a housing to this one (ugh.) Do you know (of) anyone who can replace the gasket?


Try google/bing/whatever searching online (ebay, craigslist) using key words like 'Ford F150 7.5L diesel injector parts' or something similar. If discontinued, parts may be still be available from non Olympus distributors of miscellaneous parts. Even used, damaged or cameras sold 'as is' may help but you assume any risks unless contacting the seller with specific questions.

I bought a Jabra bluetooth earpiece years ago. Several years later it broke. I took a chance on buying a damaged 'as is' replacement for $3 and repaired mine. Your search and results may vary but may be worth a try if your camera still works otherwise you're left to use it above water to avoid further damage.

I doubt you can find the parts since it is out of production for so long.
