Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?

I left my Sony DSLR our in then .. it didnt rain for a long time. When I finally remembered and went to pick it up it was completely dry .. we didnt turn it on and we took the battery out immediately .. what else should we do .. how long should we keep it off? thanks

Answers :


You may keep it turned off until all the external parts and the battery compartments get dry. Furthermore, since the Camera has got wet in rain so there is possibility that rain water may have imbibed inside the Camera thus causing mechanical failure.

So, if the Camera doesn't turn ON even after drying it completely and charging the Battery fully. In that case, service will be required.

I PURCHASED A KODAK DIGITAL z1085lS I took 6 shots in 24 hrs and battery was dead. The batterys are to expensive to be replacing so often,so I purchased good quality rechargable batteries but after 4 or five shots their dead also. Is therer an electrical problem with these camers or is this normal. Some times I can hear a motor turning in the camera long after it has been turned of. Hope you can help thanks chris

This is not normal. Good batteries should give you over 100 pics before things start to slow down. If you bought the camera new you need to contact the warranty/repair folks at www.kodak.com and have them either repair or replace the camera. If yo ... Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera

My camera worked very recently, as I took pictures on a camping trip. However, a few days later after getting back, I've found that it refuses to turn on. If I turn it to either Video or Photo, the light turns green, but then immediately flashes red several times and shuts off. I've tried different batteries, with and without several SD cards, and nothing works... How do I fix it?

Here are the steps for the no power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. ... Kodak EasyShare CX6200 Digital Camera

I have a Nikon Coolpix S200 and yesterday during my nephews birthday I sat in on the kitchen table, left to play guitar hero, came back to see my camera completely covered in milk. I dont know how long it was laying in the spilled milk..and yes..there is use in crying over it. :( I grabbed the camera, dried it off, took the battery and memory card out. I got a wet towel and got all of the milk I could get out but it was in the battery compartment and everything. Put the battery back in and tried

I drop my camera in the beach for a few seconds, took out the battery and memory stick, i open it and got it dry but still doesn't want to turn on. What can i do to get it to turn on

Get a can of compressed air. Blow out everything. Use new batteries, and a different memory stick if you have one. Check your warranty, some are good for a year. Don't let an electronic camera get hot, keep it out of the sun, not in hot places like a ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T50 Digital Camera

My Pentax W90 camera won't stop taking pictures when I turn it on. At first, it would take 2 pictures without me pressing the shutter and the screen would get "locked" (no menu or other buttons would do anything). Then, after changing the battery, the camera continually takes pictures until I turn it off. The flash goes off with each picture. I took it in the ocean with me and I noticed it started while I was snorkeling. I don't think I got anywhere near the 20 foot depth limit. I dried it

Took the Canon Power Shot on a fishing charter at Coasta Rico. Camera was dampened in a bag with a wave of salt water. Not drenched but dampened. Took batteries out and dried camera for 7 days and still will not turn on. What do you think

Saltwater? I don't think you're going to revive this camera. If it were fresh water - you'd have a fighting chance - but salt water is highly corrosive and is a much better electrical conductor than fresh water. Even if you managed to get the came ... Canon PowerShot SX20 IS Digital Camera

My Olympus Digital Camera Stylus 850 SW is supposedly waterproof, and shockproof, but when i went on vacation, and took it into the water park, and inside the water. It broke. Water got into it even though the sealed containment's, for the battery, memory card, and the usb transfer area were closed. The screen is now fuzzy, and it looks like a broken tv screen (the fuzzy part). It won't turn on, and right now it is making this noise every 21 seconds or so.

My camera, a brand new s95, will not turn on. It was briefly in my handbag, in its case, and when I took it out there was a little condensation on the viewfinder at the back. I dried it off, it didn't look like much and no other part of the camera was damp. But now I can't turn it on. I have charged the battery, left it and tried again but no result. Is this fixable?

I dropped my camera on the beach right as a shallow wave was coming in. In my fumbling to recover the camera I turned it on. The lens extended and remained that way.

I have a Kodak Easyshare M340 that fell in a pool. I took the battery out over night to let it dry out. A light in the front turns on and it makes whirring noises. Can it still function? I don't know if it matters, but my camera is silver. I only selected the red since that's all the Product line had.

Kodak DX7590.. accidentally dropped it in a waterfall.. it was under water for only a few seconds.. I took everything out (battery, memory card, etc etc) and let it dry out before trying again. Now it will come on, start up and act as if it is okay, but then immediately shut back down. Should I just ditch it and buy another (don't really want to do that because I love this camera...), or ???.. Any suggestions would be most helpful!

Dropped my camera in a pool of water in a glacier 12 months ago. I immediately took out the battery and memory card. I then spent 2 hours with a hair dryer drying the camera. Since then the camera has worked fine. This week end I "lost" the lens. I can review photo's on the screen but I get nothing in camera mode. Is it a lost cause or can it be saved?

There is no relation between the two incidents that you explained. The recent problem might have occurred due to damaging of the lens. MY solution is to replace the objective lens ( lens assembly) and the motor ( if needed ). If it costs much, then g ... Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera
