Take it for service / repair - or replace it

Ricoh Caplio R30... | Answered on Jan 06, 2018

Per the problem description, it's possible to fix it, but requires to open the camera, and clean properly all residues of moisture and corrosion, which it may require the usage of a miscroscope in case such residues are under intergrated circuits.

If you are familiar with fixing electronics, then you can do it yourself. If not, then I do recommend you that you have a qualified technician to do the repair.

I do need to warn you that if has passed several months of the water incident, the corrosion may affected permanenty the printed board circuit copper traces, and it may be necessary to replace the whole main board (or the lcd screen if the flat ribbon cable has been affected too).

If you don't want to spend money in fixing it, with the risk that it may not be possible to do it, then you can sell it AS-IS for parts, and use the money you will get to buy another camera.

Best regards,

You did insert a SD card? not a SDHC card. And before you did, you checked if the card was unlocked? (little switch on the left side should be up towards the golden contacts on the back side.

I have had the same problem.
Here where I live is a renouned camera repairman.
I took it to him and received the bad news.
He said the "frame" was bent , and it could not be repaired.
It needed to be replaced.
I am really suspicions yours may be also.

We here at "fixya" have no prices or parts for anything.
We are only a consulting group of people.
God bless your efforts.

Unless you have a lens collimator and other equipment to ensure proper alignment when you reassemble the lens, don't even think about taking the lens apart. Take the lens to a reputable camera shop and let a qualified and properly equipped tech handle the cleaning.
