Could be the error has nothing to do with the rain at all. The camera is perhaps 4 years of age? some batteries last for 10 years. But some can't survive 2 or 3 years. All depends on how they were used or abused. When normal charged and discharged in a regular cycle, the battery can survive 1000 cycles. When left alone for very long periods it damages the battery. See if you know someone with a Nikon camera that uses the same battery and try his battery in your cam and put your battery (if he or she allows this) in the the other camera. If another battery works correct, no need to test your battery in another camera. You also could look in the battery compartment is the connection points are corroded by the water. ls check the contacts on the battery. Eventually clean it with contact fluid. don't scratch the contacts, because the will corrode very quick after that.
It is more than likely dead, as there is a 300 volt charge on the flash capacitor and the water acts as a conductor and burns out parts of other circuits. You can try taking out the battery and putting in a ziplock bag with dry rice and see if will work, as it does with some cell phones, but remember that cell phones don't have a built in high voltage flash circuit
First thing to do whenever you suspect water damage is to take the batteries out, open as many doors and caps as possible, and let the device dry out for 2-3 times as long as you suspect it should take. Sometimes in humid environments you can put the device in a container and dump in some clean dry rice. Cover it and let the dry rice pull some of the moisture out. Don't let rice get in the camera :) As a last resort, you can disassemble the camera as far as you feel comfortable, then dump some denatured alcohol in and around the screen to help flush out the water and possibly clean any residue left on contacts by the drying water. After this, again let the camera dry out completely before even reassembling. If it still doesn't work, it may be time to get a new camera. Good luck!
Unfortunately in those camera's there's no good way to replace the bulb without tearing the entire camera apart which is why almost no places sell bulbs. As well since it was left in rain it could have possibly fried the circuit which isn't fixable. If you need more help let me know =)
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.
This seems to happen when something (water, sand, dust) gets trapped in the lens mechanism. The recommended methods include taping on the bottom of the camera,rapping it on a table, and pressing hard on the lens. If the lens moves when you turn the camera on, try keeping your hand on it so that it's forced back into the camera body. A can of compressed air squirted around the lens is also a possible fix... but be super careful with that stuff, a good hard blow of breath might be safer.
I'm not recommending that you do crazy stuff to your camera, but if you're careful you may be able to get it working again without having to get it serviced.
