Usually when cameras fall in water, the circults gets wet and mostly causes a short-circuit which causes the components to fail. If the camera fell in water without the battery you could try

1. Drying it completly before putting on the battery to test it.

2. Immerse the camera in alchol complety. It basically substitutes water (removes moisture) and vaporises quickly. Dry it completly and test it with battery.

If the battery was in when you dropped it your chances are less. You could dry it completly and show it to a technician ASAP. Make sure no moisture reaches it.

Hope its still under warranty.

What will you do if your camera fell in the water?


I'll immediately turn it off and take out the batter and memory card. Now I'll try to take out water as much as I can by using tissue paper. If I know how to dismantle it (and then re-assemble it back properly) then I'll do that and let it dry completely and then re-assemble it. Put back the batteries and check if its working, if yes then well and good else give it to repair or buy a new camera if repair is not possible or repair charges not worth the camera was.

Apparently, Some water worked its way into the camera circuitry. You need to stop trying to get it to work...you're only making things worse. Remove the card and battery. Bury the camera in a bowl of dry rice for a few days to absorb any moisture.

Error code messages in the status panel of the Fun! Digital 320 camera.


The following is a listing of the error codes you might see on the status panel of the PhotoMAX Fun! Digital 320 camera: 1.FL - Photo memory is full. You cannot take more photos. Download and then erase the photos in your camera. 2.FE - Flash memory error. A camera hardware error occurred. This can happen when the power is shut off before a photo is completely stored in the camera. Do not shut off the power until the green light comes back on steady after you take a photo. 3.bE - Hardware problem. Turn the power switch on and off and see if the error message disappears. If the error message persists, the camera may need to be replaced. 4.Lo - Battery low. Replace the camera battery as soon as possible. If you continue to use the camera, picture quality will be poor. 5.LL - Low light condition. The camera does not have enough light to take a good photo. Improve the subject lighting if possible. Example: When taking indoor photos, add additional room lighting.
