Answers :

I HATE TO SAY THIS, BUT DROPPING IT IN SALT WATER IS ABOUT LIKE THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH ON YOUR COMPUTER. SALT WATER BEING VERY CORROSIVE WILL, IF NOT HAS RUINED ANY WORKING PARTS AND CIRCUITS IN THE CAMERA. DRYING IT DOES NOT REMOVE THE SALT AND THE DAMAGE WILL BE TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT REPAIR WILL BE ALL BUT IMPOSSIBLE. THERE JUST ISN'T ANY FIX FOR SOMETHING LIKE SALT WATER. I'M SURE THAT INSERTING THE BATTERY MOST LIKELY SHORTED OUT CIRTCUITS INSIDE THE CAMERA. THERE JUST ISN'T MUCH HELP HERE EXCEPT A VERY EXPENSIVE REPAIR IF YOU COULD FIND ANYONE WHO WOULD EVEN WORK ON A SALT WATER DAMAGE. WATER AND CAMERAS JUST DON'T MIX.

RE: The CCD has failed - this WAS covered by a recall, but has now lapsed and repair is chargable. I took my camera in to a Sony store a couple of years ago and showed them this problem and was not advised that there was a recall. I was told that it would cost a couple of hundred dollars to fix it, so I decided not to. Now I am told that the recall has expired. I feel cheated out of a mandatory repair job.


I just spoke with a Sony representative who confirmed that the recall has expired. He said it would cost me $172.00 to get my camera "up and running". ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

My Sony Cybershot Camera was dropped in water accidentally the other day. I have let it dry out as much as possible for 2 days.
