Having problems with your Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital Camera ?

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
\015\012.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

\015\012beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Water damage Hi, One of my kids knocked a drink over my camera and I have dried it out. The lens was not working, but seems to be now. But the picture is not good at all, and I can not see the picture I am about to take. It take photos OK just can not see what I'm taking. I keep getting told its probably cheaper to buy a new camera than to get my one fixed. Help please. Thanks Lisa

I have a D80 since 2 years and since last 1 week have been getting the 'Err' message. Initially, after referring to the manual & pressing the shutter release button, the camera responded only ONCE. i.e. the 'Err' message disappeared and the pics were SEEN on the screen (which means the shutter was working). Now, even that has stopped. I'm not able to click any pictures (although the mirror moves) and certain specific menus & other buttons on the body dont work. Now on pressing the shutter re

White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?

My Canon eos 1 n shows a bc error when I fire the shutter, it will AF, and meter the scene fine but then bc appears. I have been told by a tech that the shutter is fine, and that the board is fried. My thinking is if the board wasn't working surely it wouldn't focus or meter? It's a costly fix so I just want to confirm that I'm not getting taken for a ride, any thoughts.

Damaged Camcorder The camera on my Hitachi DZ-MV780A DVD Camcorder quit working. All the other functions work, but I can't get a picture through the viewfinder, or on the LCD panel. Need to know if this is major problem or simple fix so I don't spend more repairing the problem than just buying a new camera. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

My camera is in great condition and I'd hate to spend the money to get it fixed. It seems like everything else is working except for the lens...which is a big one! It never reads "ERROR" its just that the lens will not focus. It makes a noise when it is turned on like it is trying to focus. Even when I slightly hold the shutter button it makes a strange noise trying to focus but cannot. Any ideas of what I could do?

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

Ruined Screen My friend's screen is ruined. When it's off you can see some damage or something on the screen. When I turn it on I get this. http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c386/Judas_Iscariot_X8792/Camwithbrokescrean.png Also the lens doesn't "grow" out like it should when you turn it on. It hasn't been dropped in water, nor has it fallen to the ground and broke that way. Does anyone know if this can be fixed. I also don't know if this cam is under warranty.


Kodak has a web site where you can enter the serial number and check warranty status, if it is less than a year old and has been registered it is possible it will be covered. This is just a guess on my part. ... Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera
