My camera fell into the water

What kind of water? If it is sea water it is probably gone as sea water is highly corrosive. Did you immediately remove the battery and leave it out? If not, then the water, which conducts electricity, could have sent over 300 volts from the flash circuit into the rest of the camera and fried a number of circuits. Without seeing the camera it is impossible for me to give any other suggestions

My camera fell in sea water

My sympathies. If you immediately fished the camera out, removed the battery, rinsed it in fresh water, and let it dry thoroughly before even thinking about putting the battery back in and seeing whether it turns on again, then you MIGHT be able to salvage the camera. Otherwise it's time for a new camera.

The pictures on your memory card should be okay. Just rinse the card in fresh water and let it dry before trying to read the card.

My Sony Camera fell in the sea water, can it still be fix? How?

Salt water damage is very bad for electronic devices, especially if the device was switched on at the time when it was dropped into salt water.
The cost of repair if you can get someone to repair it would most like be very expensive.
I would recommend you purchase a new camers, it most likely be a later and better model.

Drying a camera involves burying it in a bowl of dry rice for a week before even attempting to turn it on. However, your camera was exposed to so much water, there may be no hope for it.

I turn on the camera and the screen starts flashing. lenses wont come out all the way. Fell in the pool.

if it fell in the pool you wouldn't have turned it on instead you would have pulled out the batteries and place the camera in a conducive environment for it to dry for about 2hrs before turning it on......Anyway you can still try..

If not here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the camera: Dry the camera, battery, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, camera and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped camera in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your camera because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the camera. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

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.
