Having problems with your Samsung L100 Digital Camera ?

My camera afected with sea water

Answers :

Salt water is going to be a significant problem, that will not go away. Once inside the device (camera, cellphone, radio, or any electrical / electronic device for that matter) it will stop the device from working because the water changes the values of components designed to do specific things based on resistance and conductivity. Water is a conductor - but not very good, so sometimes - allowing it to dry out in a an low temperature oven or placing in a cloth sack or pillow case and then into a bowl of uncooked rice, can save it.

Salt water however, is a very good conductor when compared to water. The water will eventually evaporate, but the minerals in the water - including the salt - will not. They will remain and interfere with the circuit components and prevent then from working as designed.

My suggestion is simply replace the camera. It is highly unlikely that it will ever work again, and no one would ever attempt repair it as it would be too costly to do so.

Sorry!
