Re: I kinda got sticky stuff one my wheel

You can take it to a store to send it out for repair but the labour on this could be pricy. You may want to get a quote at least. I am NOT suggesting you should take it apart yourself, and I'm NOT telling you this is safe according to Kodak, but sometimes you can use a few drops (very little) of isopropyl alcohol (only) to help as it is 99% pure, will not cause rust, and evaporates very quickly. You can get it at any drugstore for a couple of dollars. Basicly work the button and wheel again and again with the alcohol. Make sure that you allow evaporation before turning the camera back on.

I have a kodak digital camera and I had it in my backpack bag with a icepack .

If the icepack caused condense in the camera, the moist can have damaged the electronics.
Try drying it in a bag of rice and before you continue, charge the battery. If it does not work, start saving for a new camera. Sorry.

I am afraid that there is only a small percentage of luck that your camera isn't destroyed. If it was in the bag with the wine for a long time then the wine certainly went into the camera circuits.
What you can do is take it to an electronics service shop and ask them if they could open it, remove the components and clean them with special solutions to remove the sticky wine.
Hope it works.

Your Vtech Camera

Could the button be sticky (due to sticky fingers)? If so, try to pop the button out with a pocket knife or something similar and slim. When you get it out, take a q-tip and dip into some hot soapy water and run it around the button. Should take off the sticky stuff and might fix you. If not it could be a defect in the camera.

My camera got wet ...

Well put it away somewhere warm for another month with the battery out.

But I have a feeling that the camera has died
Nothing for you to repair in side so you wont beak anything by taking it apart for curiosity sake.

Sony DSC- W55

Hi Shubha

If it is only 3 months old, you have a service guarantee from Sony. You find your local Sony service center in the blue booklet supplied with the camera.

I will warn you though, sticky buttons normaly indicate moisture or liquid damage to the set. Something Sony might ask you to pay for as this is not covered by their warranty.

Remember to take your proof of purchase with you as this will surely speed up the repair process.

Good luck
