Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix L14 Digital Camera ?

Self-timer light stays on


\015 I admit to being the source of the problem; I drop the L14 in the ocean. I requed it quickly, and although it was on when I dropeed it, I took the batteries out immediately in the hope of saving the camera. I waited a few days for it to dry out, and then tried turning it on - and it actually came on! It let me set the settings, and even take a picture, but the self-timer light on the front remains on. It even remains on when the camera is off, as long as I leave the batteries in. \015\012\015\012Also, the camera returns to the menu (the one that is accessible from by pressing the button over the screen, which changes between portrait, close-up, etc.) without my pressing the button. It looks like there is some salt or sand in the crevices around the top, and I wonder if there is a connection.\015

Answers :

Salt Water is like the Acid in a car battery...once you drop a camera in the ocean its basically Done! Salt water is a conductor of electricity and will short out parts of the circuit board(s). The best thing you could have done was take it apart and have the circuit boards Sonically cleaned by a jeweler or a place that has the capability to sonically clean electronics. This involves Total disassembly of your camera however. Sometimes its not worth it.Sounds like you still have some salt residue inside the contacts that tell the camera that the self timer switch is "made" or Shorted.
Some CRC Electronic cleaner may work as well...thats the easiest solution. Take it apart and Drench the boards, Contacts with Electro cleaner. Thats where I would start if you can remember how to put things back together.
