Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Dropped in river in a leather camera bag for split second. Dried straight away just wont turn on have fully dried out in sun.



Answers :

The sun only dried out the exterior, not the inside where the circuits are. If you tried to turn it on while still wet inside, you probably fried the circuits.
