Answers :

Sorry but saltwater is the worst thing after fire or total crushing that any electronic device can be exposed to. Salt causes physical and chemical damage which is near impossible to reverse. You might not have seen any water inside the camera, but it only takes a tiny amount to destroy a digital camera.

Your camera may look ok, but it's a write-off. It's impossible to remove all residual salt which will continue to corrode circuitry inside the camera. Any tiny pockets of trapped saltwater are eletcrically conductive and will cause electronic faults, any condensation which occasionally gets into all cameras just dissolves trapped salt to effectively become seawater.

The only hope would have been to immediately remove the battery and memory cards and then to immerse the camera in de-ionised water, but even then the camera would likely have been ruined. Leaving it to dry out for two days has simply ensured that remaining salt deposits are now buried deeply within the components and absorbent materials used in the camera.

Sorry to disappoint you, but your only hope is that the camera was insured against accidental damage. Even then, the insurer may refuse to pay by arguing that your camera was put at unnecessary risk by not being in a waterproof housing.

I hope that my reply has still been of use to you; please don't forget to rate my answer.

Last year I bought my mom a digital camera for christmas. It worked great for about 2-3 months. Since then it is speratic, it will turn on let you take a couple of pictures then shuts down all by itsels. If you put freshly charged batteries in the camera it will let you take 4-5 pictures tells you low batteries then shuts down. Is there any way we can return the camera to the company and receive some credit to purchase a new one for my mom? The other question is could we get it fixed?

Today my 5 yr old dropped our S1050 Samsung camera about 3 feet onto a wooden bridge and now the camera DOES turn on and WILL let me review the pictures I had taken up until that point. However, when attempting to take a picture the picture is out of focus and when I zoom IN it gets clearer but then the camera beeps 2 times and shuts off and closes up. It will let me snap an out of focus picture though. Is there any hope? This camera was expensiveand we've only had it a year. Thanks
