Waterproof Case Using Notice
 Before sealing the waterproof case, keep the camera housing’s rubber seal clean, a single hair or grain of
sand can cause a leak. You can test by closing the case without inserting the camera. Submerse the case
completely in water for about a minute. Remove the case from the water, dry off its exterior with a towel,
then open the case. If the entire interior is dry, the case is safe for use under water.
19
 Remember to put the Mode Switch in your desired recording position before inserting the camera in the
waterproof case. There is no external button for the Mode Switch.
 After every use in salt water you will need to rinse the outside of the housing with non-salt water and dry.
Not doing this can eventually cause corrosion of the hinge pin and salt buildup in the seal, which can cause
failure.
 To clean the seal, rinse in fresh water and shake dry (drying with a cloth may cause lint to compromise the
seal). Re-install the seal into the grooves in the backdoor of the housing.
