Having problems with your Fuji Digital Cameras ?

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?

Answers :

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\012The problem with electronics getting a bath is that although it works now, after drying, the water that was inside will promote corrosion of the internal workings of the camera over time. I would definitely send the camera to Fuji or to a qualified service center and have them give it a good cleaning to slow or prevent the decay of the insides of the camera.
\015\012I hope this helps.

I have a Panasonic Lumix digital camera model DMC-TZ3. It fell into a toilet 8 months ago. I know gross. Fell when the water was still clean.Camera seemed dead. Found it in my garage the other day and stuck the battery in it and it came to life and takes pictures.

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

I dropped my camera in water, the lense got moisture in it but was working right away. I had opened the inside of the camera to make sure nothing got wet. I set it out to dry. The lense is dry of moisture but the buttons wont work and the camera wants me to input the date. But, since the buttons won't work I can't, and now I can't take picutres.

Shutter malfunction few weeks ago I moved and when I began unpacking and got to my camera, I discovered that something had spilled in the box and was coating the camera. I dried it off as best I could, and turned it on. It worked normally. A few days later, I noticed that whatever had spilled on it, that I hadn't been able to clean off, formed a strange gel like coating around some of the buttons. I again cleaned off what I could get to, and again, turned the camera on, and about a second later,

This is not something that you can clean from the outside. It is probably on an inside element of the lens, close to the CCD. I would send it back under guarantee, along with some prints of photos showing the mark. ... Nikon Digital Cameras
