Having problems with your Canon Rebel XS / Eos 1000D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f& EF 75-300mm f Lens ?

My camera and camcorder have stopped working due to water damage


Answers :

This is your only possible venue, short of sending the units out to be repaired. Take a large ziplock bag and fill it halfway with uncooked rice(the real stuff not the five minute stuff) place your cams into the bag for a solid 48 hours, no cheating, when the time has passed take them out and shake loose any renegade grains of rice that may be trying to rent a space in your camera. Fire them up and best of luck. Dana

I have the camcorder Sony DCR-TRV25E. Last Friday I was at the ocean and made home video on the beach. I was not close to water, but the breeze blew from the ocean and air was very moist. In the evening I tried to make video again, but the screen of the camcorder (camera on) remained black, though the player in the camcorder works well. My camcorder was in the dry home several days, but it is not working.

My Camera will not turn on I have a Canon PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph. About 2 weeks ago, it stopped working and just randomly would not turn on. The strange part is, I had just used it about an hour before it stopped working and it seemed to be just fine. I didn't drop it or damage it in any way, so I don't understand why it just stopped turning on just out of the blue.

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 have a Fujifilm E900 and I think that i have either dropped my camera or water has been spilt on it. The screen isnt cracked but when the camera turns on, 3/4's of the screen is white with a massive black mark spread over the top of it. then the bottom quarter is perfectly fine, just i cant see or aim to take picures. Plus i think the zoom has stopped working too, as it only zooms so far but not to the full extent that i know it can.

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

Hello - My Olympus SP-550OUZ Camera was in a rucksack which slid of my shoulder and hit the ground.

I have a Fujifilm Finepix F50SE camera that stopped working sometime ago. I charged it but it still would not work so I thought the battery might be bad and bought a new one. The camera worked for a very short while, then stopped. I bought another battery, but it would not work. I then thought the charger was bad, but it did charge for a good while. The camera's zoom is out and will not retract and the camera will not turn on. I don't have a camera repair shop anywhere near me, especially

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.

Battery Problem I have trouble with apparent battery failure due to bad contacts on the slide-out tray thingie that holds the batterys. Jamming it in several times when I change batteries sometimes helps, but often the camera will stop working in the middle of a shoot and indicate the battery is discharged. A quick in-and-out a couple of times of the thingie restores full battery power, but by then I've probably missed my picture. Anyone else have this problem? Other than that (and piss-poor aut
