Question about Kodak EasyShare V550 Digital Camera

Kodak Digital camera drowned?

I too had my small digital camera in my purse and did not have the cap to my diet soda on properly. I tried to blow dry it, do you think the air will help? It then began to blink its tiny little "charge" lights in succession rapidly, even though there was no battery in it. Did I just seriously fry my camera? Death by Diet Coke? Or do you think the blinking is a good sign? I just got it back from a camera repair place and paid $138 to fix it after dropping it on a very hard floor. The warranty did not cover that, and I'm quite sure the warranty won't cover spilling liquids on it.

Spilled soda on my camera sticky lens

Buy lens cleaner, to wipe off what you can, but in truth the lens should be dis-mantled to clean it properly not to mention the rest of the camera.

Is there anything to do for when soda pop gets in camera and it doesn't work

Its depend on the quantity of the soda or drink spilled on the camera you are using. Use the blower to dry the liquid and do not use it at least 10 to 12 hrs. Allow more time to drying.

It got wet and now wont turn on. It was diet soda that sprung a leak in my pocketbook. I grabbed cell phone first and camera second but while not immersed it probably did get inside. I do get a quick turn...


hmmm... stop turning it on yet.. let it dry for maybe 24~48 hours then try to turn it on. If problem persists, contact your home support from this LINK.

I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Broken camera

I am afraid nothing can be done. you will have to pay for the LCD replacement. You can save on it by getting it changed from a local repairer. And use proper camera cases to keep cameras.

The message internal memory is full is displayed on my new camera. I hav e only taken 4 pictures

These only have a small amount of non-removeable memory in them, they require a memory card to be purchased and installed to take more than a few photos. Do get the fastest memory, not the cheapest, it makes a difference, and keep the camera clean, it'll last a lot longer. Like in a dust proof bag, not in your purse.

My child spilt soda in my purse and my canon powershot sd770 is digital elph was in it. I quikly dried it off and then powerd it up and it seemed fine, later that evening I powerd it up again and it...

Powering up a wet camera usually shorts out the circuits. Soda gets sticky as it dries and further complicates matters. Still later, the corrosive activity of the acid in the soda will eat its way through the circuits. I don't hold out much hope for your camera but if you want to take it in for repair and are willing to pay the expected high cost, go for it.

Digital Camera dipped into diet coke

Unfortunately, you'll need to send it in for repair. Apparently contacts or electrical pathways other than what you can access have been compromised.You didn't mention what kind of soda it was, but if it was a type of cola, they are known to be corrosive. They can be particularly troublesome in aircraft. Place a piece of aluminum foil in a glass of your favorite cola for a couple of days and see what happens.

Anyway here is Casio's repair info:

CASIO AMERICA, Inc. (Factory Service Center)
570 Mt. Pleasant Ave.

Good luck.
