Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera ?

Camera dropped in a kiddie pool (NON-CLORINATED)

\015 The camera barely went under the water but for electronics water doesn't mix well. We put it in a bag of rice and the next day it turned on but the flash won't work and the menu buttons on the back aren't working right. I am sure water is not covered under warranty.... so... do you have any suggestions on how to get it functioning again? Maybe a new battery? The camera was off when it him the water.\015

Answers :

Well you are right , water and electronics don't mix but you may be able to save it. I did this just the other day with my digital recorder that fell out of my pocket and into a tub ow water. chances are 50-50. i quickly grabbed it and removed the batteries. Opened op the case as best I could and let it sit for a few days. Moister rises. If you place a plastic sandwich bag in an area of humidity, say outside, it will collect moister. people say to place carpet in the garage to stop moister but this just collects it as it drops from the car as it rises in the air. Anyway, a hair drier will speed things up also. It may or may not work again but it is worth a try. Be careful, the electronic flash device will give you a shock you will never forget if the photo flash capacitor is still charged. My digital recorder works great after taking it apart and letting it dry out. If using a hair dryer put it on the lowest setting. Wait a few days and re-charge or re-place the camera battery and give it another go.

Dropped my camera in a pool of water in a glacier 12 months ago. I immediately took out the battery and memory card. I then spent 2 hours with a hair dryer drying the camera. Since then the camera has worked fine. This week end I "lost" the lens. I can review photo's on the screen but I get nothing in camera mode. Is it a lost cause or can it be saved?


There is no relation between the two incidents that you explained. The recent problem might have occurred due to damaging of the lens.

The camera will not turn on after being dropped. When I switch it from off to on, the green power LED flashes briefly. The lens does not move or attempt to extend. The LCD backlight does not illuminate. The LCD appears to be slightly damaged: there is some slight non-uniformity visible when I shine a strong light on it. Otherwise the camera shows no sign of damage. Is it possible that the damaged LCD is preventing the camera from turning on? Is there a hard reset procedure I should try? I've t

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. The green light above the screen on the top left does flikker when the camera is turned on (which is normal). I am even able to take a photo and the flash works. Through all of the the s

Camera dropped My son accidently dropped my C743 digital camera. It must have hit on the right side top corner because now the screen is all white with a black triangle outline through the top right side through the middle of the screen. The camera still takes good pict., but you cant see what you took, and what is the use of having a digital camera then? My question is: can the screen be fixed, or will it be cheaper to buy a new one? Thanks!

MPEGMovieVX DSC-P200 I dropped this camera in the water last week. When I dropped the camera it was on and ofcourse went out after just a few seconds in the water. We removed the casing and dried the camera out. Everything seems to be functioning normally with the exception of taking a picture. When in any mode, the screen is just black.

I dropped my camera while it was on and the lens was extended. And I dropped it right on the lens. And now when I turn the camra off, the lens does not go back inside the camera.

My Pentax Optio A20 camera display doesn't show true colors, they now have a red-orange tint. It was dropped on the grass yesterday. When I play back the pictures, all of them show up as red-orange on the display, the ones I took before it was dropped and after it was dropped. Everything else works fine on the camera. My brother-in-law says that there may be a reset button to restore factory settings.
