Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera ?
Dropped my coolpix L3 in the water
\015 My coolpix L3 fell in the water and won't work ..is there an easy fix or is it a waste of time and money to try...\015
Probably no fix possible. If it was salt water, it is done. If it was normal clean water, you may still have a slight chance to get it going. Remove the batteries, and let it sit on a shelf for a couple weeks, that is to let it dry. Then put in the batteries and see what happens. You soon will know.If you have the patience, it may be better to take the back cover off, making a note of where the screws came from, to remember when putting together. Then let it dry for a few days.

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

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.

My Sony Cybershot Camera was dropped in water accidentally the other day. I have let it dry out as much as possible for 2 days. When I tried to use it, the camera still takes pics as it did before but it keeps saying "insert memory card" Anything more I can do? Is it worth trying it on with Sony as it's only 4 months old. Only thing is that I know that water damage is not normally covered. If they see water damage, will they bill me for the repair?

The camera was then dried and I was able to take a few pictures after the mishap. It's been a few weeks now and the camera does not work.
