Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My camera got wet as in fell in a bucket of water, is it beyond repair? It wont turn on anymore??

Answers :

Actually the best suggestion that I can give you is to leave the unit alone and dont force things let it dry for some time. THis happened to my cellphone and I left it alone for about 2 weeks then after everything was fine. Teh worst that you could do is force it to turn on as it will cause a short circuit.

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

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

I have a DSC H10 camera. Today I put it in a plastic with a water bottle that wasn't close tightly. It got wet and now I've taken out out the battery and the memory card. I let the water drain out, I wiped out the battery chamber. I turned it on a few hours after the damage was done and the screen is not very bright. Also, now I can't access my photos, but I could earlier. What do i do? Do I have to let it dry out for 24 hours before turning it on again? Do you think the damage is permanent?

Turning it on before it completely dries out usually causes a short circuit. It can take up to a week with your camera buried in a bowl of dry rice to dry out. However, since you turned it on, it may be too late but try it anyway. ... Digital Cameras
