    During a recent live aboard trip, 18 dives during 5 days, I had problems with IXY 80 combined with a WP-DC3 u/w housing.

    The function buttons stopped working and I could only make pictures by shutting down and opening the camera and aiming at something. No other button would work.

    In general the camera would work up to 10 minutes or 1 picture and sometime all functions came back on during the end of the dive in shallow water, sometimes to stop working again.

    Any idea what can cause this and what prevent this.

    Top side the camera works fine.
