Olympus E-PL2 underwater video

I am having a very difficult time getting this camera to manually white balance - especially below 30 feet. I am following the directions and am getting to the correct screen to the point where it tells me to take a picture of something white. I have tried a white writing slate, the sand and pointing straight up towards the sun - all of which have worked on a previous camera. I turn off the strobe. All I get is an error message that says: White Balance (WB) No Good (NG) Try Again.

The place where I bought the camera, told me just to use the custom white balance and set it for 14,000 degrees. That helps a little. They said there may not be enough light for the camera to perform the balance. The water was as clear at it gets in the Cayman Islands. My other camera worked fine all the way down to 120 feet. Olympus just told me to use something white to shoot.

Everything else about this camera is super - but not the manual underwater white balance at depth.

Any tips?
