Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS80 Digital Camera ?
My camara got wet with salt water and does not turn on.
You probably shorted the circuit when you tried to turn it on before letting it completely dry (could take a week). Besides, salt water will continue to damage even after drying so maybe it's time to think about another camera.

Hey so I took my camera to the beach one day and despite the great lengths I went through to keep my camera away from the water, a wave got to it and it got wet. I assumed it only got wet on the outside and didn't really look elsewhere and went ahead and turned it on. When it wouldn't turn on, I checked the battery and there was a little smoke coming out of the battery slot. Apparently some water had gotten into there so of course I freaked out because my extremely expensive camera was n

My olympus tough tg-310 got wet inside with salt water form the beach now it won't turn on please help.

I have a DSC H10 camera. Today I put it in a plastic with a water bottle that wasn't close tightly. It got wet and now I've taken out out the battery and the memory card. I let the water drain out, I wiped out the battery chamber. I turned it on a few hours after the damage was done and the screen is not very bright. Also, now I can't access my photos, but I could earlier. What do i do? Do I have to let it dry out for 24 hours before turning it on again? Do you think the damage is permanent?
Turning it on before it completely dries out usually causes a short circuit. It can take up to a week with your camera buried in a bowl of dry rice to dry out. However, since you turned it on, it may be too late but try it anyway. ... Digital Cameras

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

My camera got wet with fresh water. I let it dry, but it doesn't turn on. Do I need to buy a new one?
Maybe not. It depends on how much water got in and maybe is still in, and whether the battery is busted, shorted or just depleted.I'd suggest keeping the camera for some days in a really dry place - you can heat an oven to about 50 degree ... Casio EXZ550 Digital Camera

The camera is 2 years old, when turning on the power it goes to the date set,you can change the year, then it slides over to the month, but seems froze up, then the camera resets itself, if you skip the date set up, it shows a view on the lcd, but can't take a picture, and the camera resets again. My son borrowed it and took pictures snorkeling, so it may have gotten wet, but the lcd screen is not distorted as it was a year ago when I got water in it.

I have a Sealife dc1200 camara. On my last trip moisture from the rinse tank, clean water, got into the housing. Blow dryed it right away. Removed battery and card. Now will not turn on. Can it be saved?
The camera is depth tested to 200 feet so the pressures exerted with flowing water in a rinse tank I wouldn't thing could exceed those pressures. Is this maybe a warranty thing I'd check first before doing to much more and possible voiding any warran ... Digital Cameras
Water damage? A little bit of water got on my camera. Once I noticed, I wiped it off and tried to turn the camera on and it wouldn't. Once I got home, I charged the battery, thinking maybe that would help. I put the battery back in and now there is an orange/red light on the front of the camera that won't go away, and it still won't turn on.

Battery? My sister got my Sony Cybershot wet...not submerged or anything...just wet. At first I thought it was broken b/c it would not turn on but I plugged it into the wall charger and it turns on just fine and takes pictures and everything..but the second you disconnect the wall charger from the camera it turns off...no juice at all. I'm wondering if I should waste money on a battery or just buy a new camera. Any suggestions? Could it possibly just be the battery?

Leave it in a dry environment for a few days until everything dries. I'm afraid the camera is permanently damaged if the rain has salt or chemical content. Hopefully it doesn't and it's just a matter of drying out. ... Digital Cameras
