E-12
2. Advance Check of the Case
Advance test before use
This Case has been the subject of thorough quality control for the parts
during the manufacturing process and thorough function inspections during
the assembly. In addition, a water pressure test is performed with a water
pressure tester for all products to confirm that the performance conforms to
the specifications. However, depending on the carrying and storage
conditions, the maintenance status, etc., the waterproof function may be
damaged.
Before diving, always perform the following advance test and the water
leakage test after installation of the camera.
Advance Test
1.Before installing the digital camera in the Case, immerse the empty
Case to the intended water depth to confirm that there is no water
leakage.
2.Main causes of water leakage are as follows.
・The O-ring has not been installed.
・ A part of the O-ring or the 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 Oring groove or the O-ring contact surface on the front lid
・Damage to the O-ring groove or the O-ring contact surface on the
front lid
・ When closing the Case, check for catching of the hand strap and
silica gel after the above causes have been eliminated.
CAUTION :・The most suitable method for checking water leakage is to
immerse the Case to the intended water depth. When this
is difficult, water leakage also can be checked at a shallow
depth with no water pressure. Do not feel that this is
troublesome, but perform this test.
・ If the advance test should show water leakage with normal
handling, stop using the Case and contact your dealer or an
Olympus service station (listed on the rear page of this
instruction manual).
E-13
3. Install the digital camera.
Check the digital camera.
Check the digital camera before loading it in the Case.
Battery Confirmation
As the LCD monitor is used for picture confirmation while taking pictures
under water, the battery life becomes short.
Confirm that the remaining battery capacity is sufficient.
Do not use alkaline batteries, as it is quite possible that they will become
unusable during a dive.
Note :・ In order to avoid losing shutter chances due to an exhausted battery,
you should always replace a battery with a fully charged battery
before each dive.
Confirmation of the Remaining Number of Pictures to be Taken
Confirm that the image storage has a sufficient remaining number of
pictures to be taken.
Remove the hand strap from the digital camera.
When a strap is attached to the digital camera, the hand strap must be
removed.
CAUTION :・When a digital camera is loaded without removing the strap,
the strap may get caught between the Case lids and may
cause water leakage.
・ When removing the strap, handle the digital camera with
sufficient care. Our company shall not be responsible for
damage caused by dropping the camera etc.
E-14
Loading in the Case
Which digital cameras can be loaded?
This product (PT-016) is exclusively used for the CAMEDIA μ10DIGITAL /μ-20DIGITAL.
Open the lens barrier.
When no operation is made for 3 minutes (for the set time when a different
time has been set), the LCD goes out. When another 5 minutes pass
without
any operation, the lens is retracted and the camera enters into sleep mode.
In such a case, cancel the sleep mode by operating any button.
Check the operation of the camera.
Confirm the operation according to the instruction manual for the digital camera.
E-15
Open the Case.
Insert the buckle opener of the accessory into the buckle opening lever as

②
Load the digital camera.
Quietly load the digital camera into the Case.
CAUTION :・When the setting is insufficient, the loading of the camera
becomes imperfect and it may not be possible to seal the
Case or zooming may not function. Insufficient sealing will
cause water leakage.
Note
:・ At this time, the LCD should be left switched off to save the
battery.
E-16
Insertion of silica gel
Before sealing the Case, insert the accessory silica gel bag for prevention
of fogging between the bottom of the camera and the Case. Insert the bag
with the glued longer side to the inside.
Pay attention to the orientation.
CAUTION :・Insert the silica gel all the way at the specified location and
with the specified orientation. When the orientation is not
correct, the silica gel bag will be caught when the Case is
sealed and water leakage will be caused.
・ When it is tried to seal the Case with the bag inserted only part
of the way, the silica gel bag will be caught by the O-ring and
water leakage will be caused.
・ Once silica gel has been used, the moisture absorption
performance will be impaired. Always exchange the silica
gel when the Case is opened and closed.
E-17
Check the loading status.
Always perform the following final checks before sealing the Case.
・ Has the silica gel been inserted all the way at the specified position?
・ Has the O-ring at the Case opening part been installed properly?
・ Are the O-ring and the O-ring contact surface on the front lid free of dirt
and other foreign matter?
Seal the Case.
When the rear lid is closed (quietly, so that the O-ring will not come out of the
groove), the buckles are engaged with the edge of the rear lid, and the buckle
lock levers are pushed down in arrow direction, the Case will be sealed airtight.
CAUTION :・Seal the Case by turning both buckle lock levers down in
arrow direction. When one of the buckles is left open, the
Case will not be sealed and water leakage will be caused.
E-18
Installation and Removal of the LCD Hood
Installation

Mounting and Removing the Lens Cap
Fit the lens cap onto the lens ring
as shown in the figure. Be sure to
remove the lens cap before
shooting.
E-19
Perform the final checks.
Visual Inspection
After sealing the Case, check the sealing part of front and rear lid visually
to confirm that the O-ring is not twisted or out of the groove and that no
foreign matter has been caught.
CAUTION :・Hairs, fibers, and other narrow items are not very apparent, but
they may cause entry of water, so that special attention is required.
・ When there is no operation of the digital camera for 3
minutes after it has been installed, the LCD goes out to
save the battery, and when another 5 minutes pass without
any operation, the lens is retracted and the camera enters
into sleep mode (standby status). Return to operation status
is made when the shutter button or any other button is
pressed.
E-20
Final Test
The final test after loading the camera is explained below. This is the only way to
eliminate worry about possible entry of water! Always perform this test. It can be
performed easily in a water tank or a bathtub. The required time is about five minutes.

Dry the Case.
After washing with pure water, use a soft cloth without any salt on it and not
causing any fibers to wipe off any waterdrop 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.
E-25
6. Maintaining the Waterproof Function
Remove the O-ring.
Open the Case and remove the O-ring from the Case.
Removal of the O-ring
① Insert the O-ring removal pick between the O-ring and the wall of the Oring groove.
② Move the tip of the inserted pick under the O-ring. (Take care not to
damage the O-ring groove with the tip of the pick.)
③ Hold the O-ring with your fingertips after it has come out of the groove and
remove it from the Case.
Remove any sand, dirt, etc.
After visually checking that dirt has been removed from the O-ring, checking
for attached sand and other foreign matter, as well as for damage and cracks
can be done by squeezing the entire circumference of the O-ring lightly with
your fingertips.
E-26
Use a clean cloth not easily shedding fibers or a toothbrush or tissue paper or
the like to remove any foreign matter from the O-ring groove. Clean the O-ring
contact surface on the front lid in the same way to remove any sand and dirt.
CAUTION :・When a mechanical pencil or a similar other sharp object is
used to remove the O-ring or to clean the inside of the Oring 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
chemical detergents to clean the O-ring. When such
chemicals are used, it is to be feared 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.
E-27
How to Apply Grease to the O-ring
In order to apply a thin coat of silicone grease uniformly to the O-ring, squeeze
about 5 mm from the tube of the accessory grease into a clean plastic bag and
knead the bag well. Then put the O-ring into the bag and knead it well to apply
the grease uniformly to the O-ring. When the plastic bag is clean, it can be
used repeatedly. A size of about 10 cm x 20 cm is suitable for the plastic bag.
CAUTION :・ Always perform maintenance of the waterproof function
even when the Case has been opened to exchange the
battery or the image storage during 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.
・ When drying is done with salt attached, it is to be feared
that a function impairment will be caused. After use, always
wash off any salt.
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 one at least once a year.
・ Deterioration of the O-ring is accelerated by the use 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.
Note : Please use original Olympus products for the silicone O-ring
grease, the silica gel, and the O-ring. These consumable products
also can be purchased at an Olympus service station.

7. Appendix
Q & A on the use of the PT-016
Q1:Which digital cameras can be used?
A1:The PT-016 is only for the models μ-10DIGITAL /μ-20DIGITAL.
Q2:What cautions must be observed when loading the digital camera into
the Case?
A2:Pay special attention to the following items when loading the camera
into the Case.
(1)Check that the remaining capacity of the battery in the digital camera is
sufficient.
This should be checked as the LCD monitor is used under water, and
the battery consumption becomes faster.
(2)Check the remaining number of pictures on the image storage.
Please use a card with a sufficient remaining number in order to reduce
the number of times the Case has to be opened and closed.
(3)Remove the strap from the digital camera.
When the camera is loaded without removing the strap, the strap may get
caught when the Case is sealed and this will cause water leakage.
(4)Before sealing the Case, confirm that the O-ring has been installed
properly in the groove in the rear lid of the Case.
(5)Confirm that the O-ring and the O-ring contact surface on the front lid
are free of dirt, hairs, and other foreign matter.
(6)Insert the silica gel for defogging. Please use silica gel for the Olympus Case.
Q3:What cautions must be observed when using and storing the Case?
A3:Pay special attention to the following items.
(1)When the O-ring contact surface is pressed strongly from the outside of
the Case, or when the Case is twisted, the waterproof function may be
impaired and water leakage may be caused.
(2)When the Case is used, left or stored at the following locations, defective
operation or trouble may be caused. Always avoid such locations.
(a)Places where the Case can reach high temperatures under direct
sunlight or in a car, places with extremely low temperatures, and
places with extreme temperature variations
(b)Places with open fire
(c)Places with volatile substances
(d)Places with vibrations
E-29
(3)In case of the following handling with a camera loaded into the Case,
trouble or breakage may be caused for the Case and/or the loaded
camera. Always avoid such handling.
(a)Hitting other objects
(b)Dropping
(c)Placing heavy objects on top of the Case
(4)When the Case is not used for a long time, trouble from formation of
mold etc. may be caused. Before use, confirm the operation of all
operation parts and perform the advance test and the final test.
Q4:What cautions must be observed when opening and closing the Case?
A4:Pay special attention to the following items.
(1)Do not open and close the Case at locations with water spray or sand
spray.
(2)Wipe off all waterdrops from the gap between the front lid and the rear
lid and around projections and recesses such as the buckles. When this
is not done, entry of waterdrops into the Case is to be feared at the time
of opening and closing.
(3)When opening the Case, take care that no water will drip from your hair
or body into the Case or onto the camera.
(4)When the Case is open, check that there is no attachment of sand,
fibers or other foreign matter to the O-ring and the O-ring contact
surface on the front lid.
(5)Do not touch the camera or the image storage with your hands to which
sea water is sticking.
(6)If you should detect waterdrops or other signs of water leakage while
shooting, immediately end the dive, perform the water leakage test
again, and confirm that there is no leakage. If the camera is wet, wipe
off any moisture and check the operation.
Q5:How should the Case be handled after use?
A5:After use, take out the camera as soon as possible and wash the Case
with pure water. In case of use in the ocean, it is effective to immerse
the Case for a certain time in pure water to remove any salt. Operate
the buttons and levers under water to turn the shafts and wash off any
salt. After washing, use a dry cloth without any salt on it to wipe off any
moisture and dry the Case in the shade. Do not use hot air from a hair
drier or the like and do not dry the Case under direct sunlight. Exposure
to high temperatures or direct sunlight may cause deformation,
discoloration or breakage of the Case and deterioration of the O-ring.
E-30
Wipe the inside of the Case with a soft cloth not causing any fibers.
Remove the O-ring, wipe off any salt, sand, dust, etc., and also clean
the O-ring groove and the O-ring contact surface in the same way and
then dry them. When an object with a sharp tip is used to remove the Oring from the groove, the O-ring may be damaged and water leakage
may be caused. Always use the accessory pick for O-ring removal.
Q6:How should I take pictures under water?
A6:Please observe the following items for shooting under water.
(1)Fix the protector with the accessory hand strap to your wrist.
(2)When you place a finger onto the lens window, the finger will appear in
the photo. Pay attention to the position of your fingers when holding the
Case.
(3)When pressing the shutter lever, hold the Case securely with both
hands and operate the lever quietly to prevent camera shake.
(4)Look through the LCD monitor window on the rear of the Case to
confirm the picture and then press the shutter lever. Please note that
the optical viewfinder cannot be used, When the LCD monitor is used,
the battery is exhausted earlier. In order to avoid losing shutter chances
due to an exhausted battery, you should always replace a battery with a
fully charged battery before each dive.
Q7:How can I check for water leakage?
A7:For confirmation, perform the advance test and the final test after
loading the camera. The advance test with immersing the Case without
the camera to the intended use depth to check for water leakage is the
most accurate test, but when this is difficult, it is safer to perform this
test even at a depth of 1 m or in a bathtub. The final test also can be
performed in a bathtub or a bucket.
Q8:What are the causes for entry of water?
A8:The main causes for the entry of water are shown below. Please check
them most carefully.
(1)Forgetting to install the O-ring
(2)The O-ring is partly or completely outside the groove.
(3)Damage, deterioration, or deformation of the O-ring
(4)Sand, fibers, hair or other foreign matter on the O-ring
(5)Sand, fibers, hair or other foreign matter on the O-ring groove or the Oring contact surface
E-31
(6)Catching of the strap, the bag of silica gel, etc. at the time of sealing the
Case
(7)Throwing the Case from a boat into the water, jumping with the Case into
the water, or other sudden application of strong forces onto the Case. When
entering the water, hand the Case over quietly or avoid impacts in other
ways.
Q9:What are the important points for O-ring maintenance?
A9:Please observe the following items.
(1)Never use alcohol, thinner, benzene or similar organic solvents or chemical
detergents to clean the O-ring. When such chemicals are used, it is to be
feared that the O-ring will be damaged or that its deterioration will be
accelerated.
(2)Use the original Olympus silicone O-ring grease (white cap). The grease
attached to Cases up to PT-008 (red cap) and the grease of other
companies are not suitable for this silicone O-ring, and use of such grease
may cause deterioration of the surface and impairment of the waterproof
function.
(3)In order to avoid deformation of the O-ring when the Case is not used for a
long time, remove the O-ring from the Case, apply a thin coat of the
special grease, and store the O-ring in a clean plastic bag. For reuse,
confirm that the O-ring is free of damage and cracks, that it has sufficient
elasticity, that the surface is free of stickiness and other abnormalities, and
use it after applying a thin coat of the special grease. Excessive
application of grease does not improve the waterproof function or the
permissible withstand pressure. However, it may facilitate attachment of
sand, dirt, etc.
A thin, uniform coat produces the best result.
(4)The O-ring is a consumable product. Replace it at least once a year.
(5)Deterioration of the O-ring is accelerated by the use conditions and the
storage conditions. Replace the O-ring immediately by a new one if it
shows signs of damage, cracking or loss of elasticity.
Q10:What are the important points for Case maintenance?
A10:Please observe the following items.
(1)Never use the following chemicals for cleaning, corrosion protection,
defogging, repair or other purposes.
・Never use alcohol, thinner, benzene or similar volatile organic solvents or
chemical detergents to clean the Case. Pure water or lukewarm water is
sufficient for cleaning.
E-32
・Do not use anticorrosion agents on the metal parts. The metal parts are
made of aluminum, brass or stainless steel. Cleaning with pure water is
sufficient.
・Do not use commercial defogging agents. Always use the original
Olympus defogging silica gel.
・Do not use adhesive for repairs or other purposes. When repair is
required, please contact a service station of our company or your dealer.
