Camera got wet now it dosen't work
\015 Camera got wet by being dropped into a lake it doesn't turn on\015
I thought DSC-W50 was shot after it got wet last week. It was only underwater a short time though. It wouldn't start, the lens wouldn't come out, I thought the screen might be shot. I unscrewed the sides and popped off the front, then put in the battery and it started up. Reassembled, it still had intermittent screen or lens problems (diagonal dark areas) and the E91:01 flash error. I had to go through the initiation process on the menu several times but it seems to be stablizing. I'm glad I didn't just pitch it because I like the viewfinder in this model.

I dropped my camera in water, the lense got moisture in it but was working right away. I had opened the inside of the camera to make sure nothing got wet. I set it out to dry. The lense is dry of moisture but the buttons wont work and the camera wants me to input the date. But, since the buttons won't work I can't, and now I can't take picutres.
Get a new camera - you will have other problem besides the obvious ones. Liquid will produce corrosive material after it drys and remain in the camera and will be difficult to remove later. ... Fuji FinePix F20 Digital Camera
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

Hi, my fuji fine pix camera has absolutely no power, i need it tommorow night for a big family event and it wont work. When i try and use charge it also there are no lights etc indicating a charge. A few month back i got my bag wet and the camera was in there. The camera worked after that when it was dried out. Now it does not, is there anything i can try at home to get it to work ??? :/ thankyou.
If the camera got wet the way you described, it can run for days, weeks, and months, but even with your best efforts to dry it out, moisture still got in there and caused it to fail. I have worked on countless pieces over the years that ... Digital Cameras

My camera (DSC-T70) got wet (shame on me). When I first turned it on, it worked fine but then it threw an error that said my battery wasn't capatible. I thought maybe I fried the battery so I bought a cheap generic one and it still threw the same error. I then thought maybe I needed to use an original Sony battery. I tried one of them and it still isn't working. It will come on for a second and the screen will show but then it throws the error and turns off. Is my camera toast??..:-(
IT'S FIXED!!!..:-) I'm not sure exactly what did it but I tried a little of everything. I tried taking the battery out while holding the power button then I tried taking a picture in that brief moment before the error would appear. I would get it to ... Sony DSC-T70 Digital Camera
Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.
Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
