Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS80 Digital Camera ?

My camera was accidentally thrown in the washing machine with laundry and was washed. Have let it sit for a few days to let it dry out and now it won't turn on. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

Answers :

A few days is nowhere near enough. If you've tried to turn it on, the circuits are probably fried. The soapy water would definitely leave a film over everything including the inside of the lens elements. You should have buried the camera in a bowl of dry rice for a couple of weeks before even attempting to turn it on. Even then, the chance of a complete recovery would be less than .00000000000000001%!!! At least we learn from our mistakes.
