Re: my camera dropped in water adn doesnt want to come...

If it was thoroughly drenched, indeed bye bye camera, but if it was a shallow pool ... ;] and the wetting is more local, there might be some chance, but don't try turning it on, it might be your downfall. Take to get an estimate. If the water was sugary or salty though, head towards wallmart, or better yet, a nice local small business ;] Good luck!

Shutter button wont work

Something has bent or come a drift, not something you can fix yourself, take to camera repair shop for repair , first get a quote as repair may cast as much as a new camera .

Sony cybershot dsc w80 wont turn on or retract lens. My camera suddenly stopped working one day, do not recall dropping it, etc. My mother has the same camera and I tried her battery and it still doesnt...


From your description, I would say something is stuck inside the lens mechanism of your camera. It could be a grain of sand or any small particle like a piece of fabric from a camera bag.

Hold you camera lens facing the ground and gently - moderately tap it repeatedly. You can also try spraying a compressed air into it.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Orange light stays on and camera doesnt switch on

Water is second only to fire as being the most destructive thing you can subject your camera to.

Sorry, but it is a write-off. Even after drying out there will be residual and ongoing corrosion and retained moisture in internal components. This is specifically why your warranty is invalidated by such damage and why no camera repairer will even attempt a repair.

All you can do is to see whether you can claim for accidental damage on any insurance policies which you may have.

Lens Stuck

I guess pushing the lens inside may have made the problem worse.
I follow a rule- if you drop an electronic equipment and a problem occurs- it usually takes a professional repair!
For all you kamow there is a minor problem in the camera, like something stuck inside or something like that. and most certainly you will aggravate the problem by trying to do it yourself..

do post when you get it repaired, for all of us to know what goes wrong when lens gets stuck..
take care

Won't turn on.

Did the camera sustain any damage (dropped, water damage etc)? If not I would check with Canon or the reseller to see if you can return the camera.

As a last resort you could sell the broken camera on Ebay. I know you would get around 80-90 for it. The SD1000s price is dropping now so you could turn around and buy one for around $160.

I cannot provide the answer but i think it may have something to do with the shutter mechanism. When you dropped it, something inside the mechanism may have bent or stopped. Don't take the camera apart yourself, take it to a specialist such as an electronics store. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

BIG Problem

I would send it into the repairs center and see if they can fix it. There is nothing that they could tell you to try if you called tech support.
