Actually the best suggestion that I can give you is to leave the unit alone and dont force things let it dry for some time. THis happened to my cellphone and I left it alone for about 2 weeks then after everything was fine. Teh worst that you could do is force it to turn on as it will cause a short circuit.

Camera fell in water & stuck lens


If the camera works, but just the lens is stuck, that shouldn't cost much to repair. But don't try to fix it by yourself, go to the service.

My camera fell in a pool


Unless you immediately pulled out the batteries (main battery and back up battery) then the chances are that the water shorted out the circuit and it is probably beyond economic repair

My Kodak c190 fell on the ground .. and the lens is slanted now and wont turn on. you cant see the two sides anymore either.. that are ment to open when you turn on the camera.


The repair for this problem is possible, but will probably involve replacing most of the camera, which will easily exceed the value of the camera itself. Your best bet is probably going to be replacing the camera.

I found my camera into a bucket of water, tried to dry it outside a moving car, tried turning it on, but it wont turn on, is there anything i can do to fix it?


its very difficult for the camera to dry out when it is sealed closed. A sealed wet camera
gets fairly humid inside and can take forever to dry out. If its a simple camera to
open and you feel comfortable opening it then thats the best thing to do. Open it and
let it dry out or leave it to the experts

Hey i have a sony DSC-P73 and water damage


Water damage is very bad for a digital camera. Even if you let it dry completely before turning it on, sometimes the debris in the water can fry the circuits.

Fell on the pool but it's off when it fell and it turned on but later on it did'nt turn on anymore


The water inside the camera became conductive and did damage to components on the circuit boards, and possibly did some damage to some of the mechancial parts. The camera would have to be rebuilt.

From past experience this type of repair has not been worth the cost. I would shop around for a new camera.

The screen of my blue samsung s860 is black when i turn the camera on, it fell in water and now won't work.


if the device has fallen into water then chances are that the camera is damaged, you could leave it to dry out, but this could be up to a week, don't try to dry it with heat as you could damage the camera further, if it still doesn't work then the LCD has been damaged beyond economical repair and is has to be taken into a repair shop

hope this helps

kind regards
