Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SX110 IS Digital Camera ?

Rain water got in lens.

\015 My boss is hiking in a remote part of Argentina and got rained on the last 3 out of the 10 miles. He sent a text message asking what to do when water gets in the camera lens. He doesn't have a manual. Second message says that it seems to have dried but there are water spots left under the first layer of lens. He thinks he needs to remove the auto lens cover but he can't see how to do that and is afraid to force it. Otherwise camera is working. Can anyone help? Thanks!\015

Camera needs take apart and cleaned by a professional.  Sadly your boss will only make issues worse.  He should have kept the camera in a zip lock bag.

Lens Error My daughter and I just got back from a trip to St Croix. We stayed at a resort on the beach and also went snorkeling. The camera was exposed to sand and water. While snorkeling we had the camera in a zip-loc bag so I do not believe it got water in it but I know that while on the beach it may have gotten sand on it. Now the lens won't retract and we are getting a "lens error 12". Any suggestions? Thanks


Hard choices here my friend. Sand in the lens system is bad news.Jams up the close fitting bits. You basically have two choices. Get the camera repaired or throw it away and buy a new one. Cost of repair will likely exceed the v ... Kodak EasyShare C330 Digital Camera

My A630 got wet and has a water stain behind the lens. Can I remove the lens to clean the stain?


You can but, you must be VERY careful.  It isn't like a film camera.  Everything must be lined up perfectly when you put it back together.  There is also a very small pickup behind the lens that will need to be cleaned.  It is abo ... Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera

When the camera is on it's base and plugged in you can view a slide show. when it is not plugged in you can not switch it on to view anything or take any pictures but the green light still works when you try to switch on.

The camera was very hot and kept on saying battery is low. so when i got back to London i bought a new battery for it but nothing still works.

I have a finepix s6500fd and recently dropped it in a river. The camera has dryed out very well and works, but I have now got water marks on the inside of the lens. How can I get into the camera to clean it?


Unfortunately, the lens on the 6500fd is not a removable lens, and if the water is on the inside of the glass, you will want to send it in for a good cleaning. \015\012\015\012The problem with electronics getting a bath is that although ... Fuji Digital Cameras

Lens Problem I got a new Kodak EasyShare C613. The lens just won't go in and it shows lens errors 10e,1,0,0 and 20e,1,0,0.There was no mechanical shock imparted whatsoever.I was trying a SanDisk SD card. The lens opened and it just won't go in. Please help. I got the camera shipped from the U.S so even warranty won't work.


Okay, Kodak is a load of **** if they won't allow warranty on an item that doesn't retract. And I got an SanDisk SD Card like you, and on most of my pictures it says, "FILE FORMAT UNRECOGNIZABLE." You should Email Kodak and talk to them about that wa ... Kodak EasyShare C613 Digital Camera
