Is there a manual to help me to disassemble my E-300 Olympus camera? It was left in the rain and no longer powers up.
Here's the problem. If you tried to turn on the camera while water was still inside, you probably fried the circuits. Even if you could disassemble it, what exactly could you do once inside? ... Digital Cameras
My rebel T3i 600d has been left out in the rain
It is more than likely dead, as there is a 300 volt charge on the flash capacitor and the water acts as a conductor and burns out parts of other circuits. You can try taking out the battery and putting in a ziplock bag with dry rice and see if will w ... Canon EOS 600D Rebel T3i Digital Camera
Hi there, I used my camera in sea for many times, always was working nice. But some days ago I went to sea and the camera stopped working the flash. I left overnight off and next day it was working normally again. Then when I went to sea again (always about 2 or 3 metres deep) and the camera simply stopped work. I opened the card and batterie compartment was dry and fine, when I opened the compartment where I use for connect the USB cable was very wet. I left the camera off for 3 days to dry and

Help!! My Sony DSC-W100 isn't working. I've been sifting through the message boards and none of the solutions were working for me. Some of my friends were fiddling with my camera and the camera got left with the lens out and no battery left. So I charged the battery and put the battery back in but now the lens is expanding and retracting four times while the camera reads "access" and then "turn the camera off and then on." I've been doing this repeatedly with no avail! Is there anyway to fix it
The only thing that can be done but may not fix it is to push reset switch under battery compartment door (pinhole)..also make sure you do use fresh batteries.Use good batties not cheap batteries because these camera require good current to drive ..i ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera

My S9600 was left unused [batteries left in camera] for several months. Now it will work fine with the mains adaptor, but is completely dead when on battery power. Have tried new batteries [rechargeable and 'ordinary'] - camera dead; have left on mains power for a few minutes, then switched to batteries, same result. Grateful for any suggestions...

I loaded a Mini Digital Camera (3 functions) into my computer with your CD (included) on 4/13/08. Afterwards, I tried to go on-line using my Mozilla Firefox and it wouldn't connect. Instead, a miniature screen approximately 1" x 1" appeared at the top left of my full screen showing a small replica of the Firefox icon, then the minimize, maximize, exit signs. Underneath shows arrows left and right. I uninstalled the mini camera from my computer, but I'm still unable to correct this problem. Ne

I have a samsung S85 camera that fell in a sink full of water for only a split second. I removed the batteries and left it to dry out but it does not work. It comes on but a red light on the left side of the LCD screen flashes and the camera does nothing. Can it be fixed? Is the screen bad now?
Sadly, as an ultra budget model which was selling at about £60 before it was discontinued, repairs simply aren't a viable option; the camera was never designed to be repaired in any case.After water damage it's either going to work ... Samsung S85 Digital Camera
Digimaster Happycam 5010 Problem: The shutter that protects the lens is stuck fully open. The camera is stuck with lens fully extended. ERROR 2 appears on the screen. The LED near the top left of the display flashes red. The camera will not take pictures. Before the camera got stuck the movement was getting more and more difficult to achieve. I needed to switch the camera off and on. This camera seems to be identical to the Premier Camera SL-8.

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

Black screen Well being dumb I left my camera (Canon A530 digi cam) in my preschool class for a little bit while i was out with other kids. (The camera actually lasted a little over a year around preschoolers who now know how to use my camera better than most adults!) I came back and my co-worker told me she found my camera on top of the sand table (it was closed) so she put it away on a shelf. She said it wasn't dropped or anything.

Batteries This camera has been the worst digital camera I have ever used. The pic quality is fine. The ease of use is fine. The problem lies in the battery longevity. Maybe that is not even the right description. I will put in new batteries and only use my camera for a short time. The next time I go to use the camera it is not at all uncommon for it to not turn on. Even though it has new batteries and was not left on, the batteries are dead. It happens with the rechargeable as well as re

I did not use my Nikon Coolpix S3 for quite some time. I had left the battery inside the camera. And did not charge the camera for while. Recently I tried switching it on and I found (i) the camera comes to life but the lens cover does not slide in (ii) many of the buttons are not working.(iii) the charging LED does not glow when I put the camera to charge. I checked the battery and it appeared alright to the naked eyes. Please help. Bidyut Roy

BATTERY DOES NOT CHARGE Received a "Vivitar T328" camera yesterday. Inserted the supplied battery and a new memory card into the camera and connected the camera via "USB" cable to the supplied charger. Left the unit plugged in over night. The battery did not charge. This morning plugged the camera into a lap top computer using the supplied "USB" cable. Checked after 5 hours and found that the battery still does not seem to accept the charge. What am I doing wrong?
