    We do store it with the lid opened - it's advised to do that in the manual anyway.

    We don't lube it (because as far as I could see it's not mentioned in the manual to do that) but maybe we should? Hopefully the guys from Nautilus can advise.

    BTW, they responded quickly to my email (they always do) and I'm sending it off to them for a post-mortem. I'll keep this forum informed.

    Kudos to the guys at Lifeline.

    I sent them my flooded unit and they decided it was 'defective' and offered to replace it for free.

    I have been taking cameras of one type or another underwater since about 2006. This is something I was initially really worried about but I carefully read the manufacturers care instructions and have never had an issue.
    Clean and lube your orings regularly, wipe down the groves on the housing where the orings sit, on the housing and the back plate (don't just do one piece, do both!). Don't leave your housing closed with the orings in place for storage.
    Clean and inspect everything before you leave the house, put it together and then don't open it again till your done if it can be helped.
