Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
My wonderful little sony cyber-shot got drenched when my water bottle spilled in my purse. It was in my purse about 5 minutes when I discovered it wet. I took it out and laid it in my car seat to dry it out. It has now been two days and it still is not working. Any suggestions?
Every time you try to turn on a camera that still has water in it, you fry the circuits. You should have removed the battery and card, dried as much as you could and then buried the camera in a bowl of dry rice for a week before even thinking of trying it.

My child spilt soda in my purse and my canon powershot sd770 is digital elph was in it. I quikly dried it off and then powerd it up and it seemed fine, later that evening I powerd it up again and it wouldn't. So I charged the battery over night and still wouldn't power on. This camera is only about 6 months old. What do i do?
Powering up a wet camera usually shorts out the circuits. Soda gets sticky as it dries and further complicates matters. Still later, the corrosive activity of the acid in the soda will eat its way through the circuits. I don't hold out much hope for ... Canon PowerShot SD770 IS / IXUS 85 Digital Camera

Lumix DMC-FZ7 While keeping my camera out of view on the floor of my car on the drivers side I failed to remember it was there and moved the electric seat forward and heard this CRUNCH ! Don't even go there.. It appears the unit is working fine and still taking great pictures. While the rear viewing window is cracked in three places I can still see the all the data info and picture images. Can that rear glass window be replaced, and if so at what cost? Thanks, JH
The rear screen can be replaced. Unfortunately Panasonic specifically charges so much for their replacement parts that it is not an economical repair on this model of camera. The replacement screen will run in the range of $125-$145 and the labor to ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 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.

Check the memory card or battery door for the tab that activates the cut out switch. It ,or the switch, may have sustained damage. I'm not 100% on this model but if it's like the S5700/ S5800 models then the memory card door has a tab for the cut out ... Fuji FinePix S8000fd Digital Camera
"Please describe your clean terminal xd card dry cloth problem": Well, that is exactly what my Olympus camera tells me to do whenever I switch it on! No amount of wiping makes any difference. I also went to a local photography shop where they tried my card in a reader (with no response whatsoever), and in one of their cameras, and again there was the request to clean it with a dry cloth. The shop said there is nothing that anyone can do. Please prove me wrong! By the way, the card is an Oly

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 camera. Condensation inside lens has dried leaving two blotches behind that show on every picture. How can I clean this inside once blotches are dried there?
You can't. In the future, when coming in from the cold with your camera, place it in a 6-pack cooler that is the same temperature as the outside. Put some silica gel packets in the bottom and don't open it for a while to let it slowly come up to room ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 Digital Camera

GoPro Hero camera. I get a "buzzing" sound on the videos recorded from inside my car. It seems there's some interference with the car electronics, so I've been told (and videos taken with the engine off don't suffer this problem). I've tried to "insulate" the camerea with cooking aluminium sheet, but: 1) I can't cover it entirely, because lens, display and operating buttons must be kept obviously clear; 2) It doesn' solve the problem. Is there any way to solve this problem? Thanks!
The source of the interference is usually the radio signals, so did you try turning off your car radio/music player to see if the problem persists. There are currently no covers that can solve the interference. Your only hope is to suppress the sourc ... GoPro Digital Hero 3 Digital Camera
