    waterproof function may be damaged.
    Before using, always perform the following advance checks.

    Advance check
    1 Before loading the digital camera in the Case, immerse the empty Case to confirm that there is no
    water leakage. When it is difficult, water leakage can be checked by referring “Water leakage
    test” (P. 17).
    2 Main causes of water leakage are as follows.
    • Forgetting to install the O-ring
    • Part of an O-ring or an entire O-ring is outside the specified groove.
    • O-ring damage, cracks, deterioration or deformation
    • Sand, fibers, hair or other foreign matter sticking to the O-ring, the O-ring groove or the O-ring
    contact surface.
    • Damage to an O-ring groove or O-ring contact surface.

    7. Handling after shooting
    Wipe off any waterdrop
    After underwater shooting, remove any water drop from the case. Use pressurized air or a soft, lint-free
    cloth to carefully wipe away any moisture from the hinge between the front and rear lids, the shutter lever
    and the open/close dial.
    CAUTION:
    Water left between the front and rear lids can get inside the Case once it is opened. Please dry these areas
    carefully.

    Unload the digital camera and batteries
    Open the Case carefully and remove the digital camera and light batteries.
    CAUTION:
    • When opening the Case, make sure no water from outside (e.g. drops from your hair or the diving suit) gets
    inside the Case and/or on the camera.
    • Before opening the case, ensure that your hands or gloves are completely clean (free of sand, loose fibers,
    etc.).
    • Never open the Case in areas where water could splash or spray or where sand or dust could be blown in
    the air. When this cannot be avoided, for example if the battery or memory card needs to be changed, the
    Case and camera should be protected from the wind or spray with a plastic sheet or similar object.
    • Never touch the digital camera and/or battery when your hands are wet with sea water.

    Wash the Case with pure water

    En

    After use, seal the Case again after taking out the camera and wash it sufficiently in pure water as soon
    as possible.
    After use in sea water, it is effective to immerse it for a fixed time (30 minutes to 1 hour) in pure water to
    remove any salt.
    CAUTION:
    • Water leakage may occur when a high water pressure is applied partially. Before washing the Case with
    water, remove the digital camera from it.
    • Operate the shutter lever and each buttons of this product in pure water to remove salt adhering to the shaft.
    Do not disassemble for cleaning.
    • Letting salt dry on the Case may impair the function. Always wash off any salt after use.

    PT-EP05L_06L_EN.Book Page 22 Friday, July 15, 2011 10:30 AM

    Dry the Case
    After washing with pure water, use a lint-free soft cloth without any salt on it to wipe off any water drop
    and dry the Case completely at a well ventilated location in the shade.
    CAUTION:
    Do not use hot air from a hair drier or the like for drying and do not expose the Case to direct sunlight, as this
    may accelerate deterioration and deformation of the Case and deterioration of the O-ring, leading to leakage
    of water.
    When wiping the Case, take care not to cause scratches.

    8. Maintaining the waterproof function
    The O-ring is a consumable product. Before each use, perform proper maintenance. Always be sure to
    perform the O-ring maintenance operation as described below. Neglecting this maintenance may
    become the cause of water leakage.
    Perform at the location without sand or dust, after washing and drying your hands.

    Remove the O-ring
    Open the Case and remove the O-ring.

    Procedure
    1 Insert the O-ring remover into the gap between the O-ring and O-ring groove wall.
    2 Bring the tip of the inserted O-ring remover below the O-ring. (Be careful not to damage the groove
    with the tip of the O-ring remover.)
    3 Lift the O-ring, pinch it with your fingertips and pull it out of the Case.

    Remove any sand, dirt, etc.
    After visually checking that dirt has been removed from the O-ring, check for attached sand and other
    foreign matter, as well as for damage and cracks by squeezing the entire circumference of the O-ring
    lightly with your fingertips.
    Remove attached foreign matter from the O-ring groove with a clean cloth or a cotton swab. Also remove
    any sand or dirt attached to any part of the Case that comes into contact with the O-ring.
    CAUTION:

    En

    • When a sharp object is used to remove the O-ring or to clean the inside of the O-ring groove, the Case and
    the O-ring may be damaged and water leakage may be caused.
    • When the O-ring is checked with the fingertips, take care not to stretch the O-ring.
    • Never use alcohol, thinner, benzene or similar solvents or chemicals detergents to clean the O-ring. When
    such chemicals are used, it is likely that the O-ring will be damaged or that its deterioration will be
    accelerated.

    Install the O-ring
    Confirm that no foreign matter is attached, apply a thin coat of the accessory grease to the O-ring, and
    fit the O-ring into the groove. At this time, confirm that the O-ring does not stick out from the groove.
    When sealing this product, make sure that no hairs, fibers, sand particles or other foreign matter stick
    not only to the O-ring, but also to the contact surface (front cover). Even a single hair or a single grain of
    sand may cause water leakage. Please check with special care.

    Applying grease to the O-ring

    1 Apply only Olympus
    exclusive grease to O-ring.

    Make sure that your fingers and the O-ring are
    free of dirt, and squeeze about 5 mm of grease
    onto a finger. (5 mm is the most appropriate
    amount.)

    2 Spread the grease onto the
    entire circumference of the
    O-ring.

    Spread the grease onto the entire
    circumference of the O-ring using 3 fingers.
    Be careful not to use excessive force as this
    may stretch the O-ring.

    3 Check that the O-ring is free
    of scratches or unevenness.

    After spreading the grease, check visually and
    by touch that the O-ring is not scratched and
    that its surface is flat. If it is damaged in any
    way, replace it with a brand-new O-ring.

    CAUTION:
    • Always perform maintenance of the waterproof function even when the Case has been opened every
    shooting. Neglecting this maintenance may become the cause of water leakage.
    • When the Case is not to be used for a long time, remove the O-ring from the groove to prevent deformation
    of the O-ring, apply a thin coat of silicone grease, and store it in a clean plastic bag or the like.

    Examples of foreign matter sticking to the O-ring

    En
    Hair

    Fibers

    Grains of sand

    Replace consumable products
    • The O-ring is a consumable product. Independent of the number of times the Case is used, it is
    recommended that the O-ring should be replaced by a new piece at least once a year.
    • Deterioration of the O-ring is accelerated by the usage conditions and the storage conditions. Replace
    the O-ring even before a year has passed if it shows signs of damage, cracking or loss of elasticity.
    CAUTION:
    • Use genuine Olympus silicone grease, silica gel and O-ring.
    • Do not try to replace the O-ring by yourself.
    • We recommend to perform the check periodically.
