busted olympus

So my sister brings back my olympus camera (D-510, 2.1 megapixel a few years old) complaining that it was just beeping etc.

The last time it worked was right before a high speed speed boat trip (on the ocean) somewhere in thailand. I figured it got wet but she swore it was in it’s case, in her bag. So it was dry when you took it out. Well maybe it was the humidity or sea spray, but i was surprised when i opened it up.

Opening it was easy, and then i find all this rust and corrosion around the LCD frame. There is no gasket between the outer plastic case and the edges of the LCD that you see here.

I’ll dissect this picture by picture, for now notice the rust in the bottom right corner of the LCD
