I had my nikon s4000 in a zip lock bag INSIDE a ziplock bag and went rafting....I fell in the water and some water got into the bag with the camera. First solution is-never take a camera on a rafting trip :) I dried it out, when I put the battery in the power/ligthening bolt button 1st was orange/green...now its just green. But-nothing else is working. (shocking I know) Is there any hope to csave my camera? idea's?

It is still under warranty. As long as you didn't exceed the water depth recommendations, Olympus should fix or replace it. ... Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera
I dropped my camera in water, the lense got moisture in it but was working right away. I had opened the inside of the camera to make sure nothing got wet. I set it out to dry. The lense is dry of moisture but the buttons wont work and the camera wants me to input the date. But, since the buttons won't work I can't, and now I can't take picutres.
Get a new camera - you will have other problem besides the obvious ones. Liquid will produce corrosive material after it drys and remain in the camera and will be difficult to remove later. ... Fuji FinePix F20 Digital Camera
Went into the water, about 5 feet and after that the camera wouldn't turn on. I have Stylus 1030 SW. I have had the camera for about a year. It was working fine in the water, and I would rinse it in fresh water, like they said, but this time I came out of the ocean and it turned off and stayed off. Do I need a new battery? This battery costs $39. in retail store! My battery is a year old! Please e-mail:Thanks-June

We went to a water theme park and my camera fell into the water (immersed completely). After that I tried to turn it on to check it works or not but it was showing some problems. Then I opened the battery and left it for a day like around 24 hours. Now when I try to turn on the camera. It says Lens Error. What could be done in this situation. Camera Model : Canon IXUS 80IS. Need some assistance in this regard.
Turning on a camera with water inside is risky. You can fry the circuits. I'm amazed yours worked although for how long is anyone's guess. It should have been buried in a bowl of dry rice for a week. Even so, water will have seeped between the lens e ... Canon Digital Cameras
I bought your EX-G1 camera to take on a trip to the Galapagos Islands because it was claimed to be an underwater camera. It worked the first 2 times I went snorkeling with it. The third time, I tried to turn it on, the screen was blank so I surfaced and found the memory card/terminal cover open and the screen was completely filled with water. We let it dry out for 4 days hoping it would start, but one of the guys said the battery was bad. Before going in the water, I always checked the batte

My Olympus Digital Camera Stylus 850 SW is supposedly waterproof, and shockproof, but when i went on vacation, and took it into the water park, and inside the water. It broke. Water got into it even though the sealed containment's, for the battery, memory card, and the usb transfer area were closed. The screen is now fuzzy, and it looks like a broken tv screen (the fuzzy part). It won't turn on, and right now it is making this noise every 21 seconds or so. I charged my battery for a long time, b

My Canon IXUS 860 IS went inside water when it was switched ON mode. Then after 5-10 minutes, I get the camera out of the water. I tried drying it through a hair dryer. Then now its not switching ON.I can charge the battery. Please help to resolve this problem. Thanks, Jyoti Ranjan Rout
A hair dryer will only get to the external places. Water got into the camera and when you tried to turn it on, you probably fried the circuits. The correct procedure for drying a camera is to remove the battery and card, dry everything you can get to ... Canon IXUS 860 IS Digital Camera
I have a finepix s6500fd and recently dropped it in a river. The camera has dryed out very well and works, but I have now got water marks on the inside of the lens. How can I get into the camera to clean it?
Unfortunately, the lens on the 6500fd is not a removable lens, and if the water is on the inside of the glass, you will want to send it in for a good cleaning. \015\012\015\012The problem with electronics getting a bath is that although ... Fuji Digital Cameras

Screen problems My Olympus FE-4000 12 MP digital camera with 4X wide angle optical zoom was working fine until one afternoon when I went to take a picture. The camera was never dropped into water, or exposed to heavy outdoor elements. The problem is that the screen in general has some white patches and two large black patches over it so you can only see a small part of the image. My question to you is, what seems to be the problem, and how can it be fixed? There is no damage to the outer surface

Turning on. my camera won't turn on no matter what I do, for a few days it said low battery and i won't lie i kept turning it on, but one day it turned off but the lens never went back inside and the camera won't turn on. I replaced the old batteries with new ones, but it didn't work. I press the button, but the light only flashes for a second before blinking out.

Delicate electronics and acid (salt water) make poor companions. Any time you get a modern camera anywhere near the ocean it's only a matter of time until it's gets just a drop or two of sea water in the wrong place. One must consider a underwater ... Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera
My Canon A430 Camera got a bit wet when I fell into a Dam this weekend. The camera did not at all touch the water, but a few drops of water did land on the camera. After drying the few drops off, the camera still worked for the whole day as well as the whole evening, but the next morning the camera did not work. The green light above the screen on the top left does flikker when the camera is turned on (which is normal). I am even able to take a photo and the flash works. Through all of the the s

Hi there, I used my camera in sea for many times, always was working nice. But some days ago I went to sea and the camera stopped working the flash. I left overnight off and next day it was working normally again. Then when I went to sea again (always about 2 or 3 metres deep) and the camera simply stopped work. I opened the card and batterie compartment was dry and fine, when I opened the compartment where I use for connect the USB cable was very wet. I left the camera off for 3 days to dry and

My touch screen of samsung ST550 camera isn't working. I cant switch on the dual screen because the button on the bottom left isn't working. I was just taking some pictures of water and a very little bit of water splashed into my camera. I wiped the water off and that's when the problem started. How should i fix the problem? I dont think the water created the problem because the amount of water which splashed into my camera was very small. Thank you.

Battery/Docking Station The camera was working fine. No, I did not drop it nor has it gotten wet. I had recently gotten back from vacation and put the camera on the docking station. I extracted some photos put them on my computer. Then proceeded to just let the camera charge. After a few days I went to go and use the camera again, but it would not power up. I get nothing from it. Now, I went on Amazon and bought an equivalent battery to replace the Casio one. The camera worked. So I put it on t

Hey so I took my camera to the beach one day and despite the great lengths I went through to keep my camera away from the water, a wave got to it and it got wet. I assumed it only got wet on the outside and didn't really look elsewhere and went ahead and turned it on. When it wouldn't turn on, I checked the battery and there was a little smoke coming out of the battery slot. Apparently some water had gotten into there so of course I freaked out because my extremely expensive camera was n
