Olympus PT-010 DIY Cleaning Guide...

Recommended Posts

I just did a cleaning of the casing by myself, and did a tutorial for those interested in how the PT010 is constructed. I've yet to test out the casing at pressure at a nearby swimming pool to see if the sealing of the black O-rings are intact, but i'll keep you guys posted!

 

Wait no longer, here is the article!

Great stuff! I think I'll get started right away. That will keep my mind off ideas about getting new and expensive gear. Or maybe I should wait for your pool test... :)

Then I shall get to it! Those black o-rings look a bit salty. :)

meister, i did not purchase new black O-rings. i took mine out carefully using a screwdriver, in a similar way you'd gently take a poached egg off a hot pan. :)

 

paste, please be careful!

 

my friend on another forum has shown me another site, http://pt010.da-kine.info/topics.htm , which has cautioned especially when doing the zoom lever - because if the lock "bolt" is not fastened into the groove, there is a risk of flood! :(
