Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera ?

Water damage - worth repair?

\015 Okay so a small amount of water (half a teaspoon at most) was splashed into my open shutter of my sd1000 elph. It would not retract the lense, adn the lcd started showing static and white flashes. I took the battery out, and let it sit for a day. I put the battery back in and it started popping like it was short circuiting. Canon has it now and says it is corrosion and liquid damage. Is my poor camera now just to be used for parts or is it salvageable by Toothy Sam or someone like him?\015

Answers :

These are electronic devices, and have NO tolerance for moisture inside. The popping sound you heard tells the story. I suspect that you have lost this unit.

My Sony Cybershot Camera was dropped in water accidentally the other day. I have let it dry out as much as possible for 2 days. When I tried to use it, the camera still takes pics as it did before but it keeps saying "insert memory card" Anything more I can do? Is it worth trying it on with Sony as it's only 4 months old. Only thing is that I know that water damage is not normally covered. If they see water damage, will they bill me for the repair?

My 450d canon won't turn on and when the battery is in, the WB button (second on the right side of the screen) is blue. I have a feeling this means' get it repaired' as I had a friend borrow it and said they spilt a drink near it but not on it, but this seems like they may have spilt the drink ON my camera and have caused some sort of water damage. I'm really quite worried as I'm often told repairs cost more than the camera is worth and I don't want to have to buy another!

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

There is a large black spot on all of my photos using a Sony Alpha A100. Is there a way for me to address this myself without having to have it sent away for repair? The body is only worth about $200 bucks now, so not sure it's worth repairing.

Take the lens out and check the inside. It's possibly the plastic ring inside that has shifted out of place. You can push it back. I've had this before. The kitlens is a bit crappy... ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Digital Camera
