Question about Fuji FinePix E550 Digital Camera

My camera got wet. Help!!!

I forgot I had my camera sitting outside when I turned on the sprinklers. It was soaking wet after an hour or so. I took the batteries out and opened everything on the camera I could to let it dry out. After a few hours, it finally turned on, but started doing things on it's own. Is my camera now garbage? How about the images that were on the card, are they ruined too? Thanks!

Re: My camera got wet. Help!!!

Has it dried out yet? The images on the card, as I;m sure you know, were fine.

Sit the camera in sunlight for few hours until its get warm and make sure the battery and memory card out and the doors must be open . After that insert the battery only and try to turn on and see the result.

I had my camera in my purse and when i took it out and turn it on. my camera turns on white screen but with a black liquid spot on it. is it fixable? please help my camera is brand new.

Your purse would have happened to be black and the camera on the outside pocket would it?

If so and it was in heat then the LCD screen has super heated, it might come back after a few hours to cool. There is operating temperature ranges listed in the manual extreme heat and cold will just kill most digital point and shoot type cameras, sometimes they come back sometimes not.

I would also take the battery out of it and let it sit for a few hours to cool DON'T put it in a cold place let it come up to room temperature gradually.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 was soaked in water. It isn't working, will it work when it drys out?

It depends on how wet it was, if the entire thing was submerged, or even a large portion, it probably will may turn on but it is likely that the lens will be damaged permanently. However if it was just wet upon the outside, like it was used out side during a rain fall, and then wiped dry every thing should be fine.It all depends,try drying it out thoroughly, letting it sit out with all lens caps and lens attachments removed, battery doorway open. is the best thing you can do. I hope that everything works out for you. God bless...

My daughter has the fuji finepix that is white with pink polka dots. she took it to the beach and it was wrapped up in a towel, the tide came in and got the towels a little wet but not soaking wet, she...

you did good and removing the battery and memory card was also a good idea....leave the unit for a couple days the way it is...check later to see if there is any white or green residue(powder) or rust looking areas around the memory card and battery location...if it seems clear then it should be fine, if you see any type residue, then water got into the unit and is starting to corrode it...which means 2 things...either buy a new one or you can still try to salvage this one by having it opened and cleaned out with acetone and dried up completely..then for sure it will be good to go..but first try what I suggested

Accidentally left in water, won't turn on. Is it done for?

I agree with Turbo76 but if water damaged, you may have fried a chip. The reason the lens crawls is because of water in the gears. If you have patience, you can probably take it apart. There are a few screws on the outside and the front just pops off. Not really hard to do.

If you feel like working on it, I would first power it on and remove the batter so that the lens is out. This will allow you to wipe the surface.

I would then remove the outer screws and lift up the face. There are two tabs that you need to flip up in order to remove the ribbon cables. There are only two of them.
And the lens assembly just lifts out. No screws....

Once out, try to carefully wipe anything down, and try to clean out any wetness that may still be present or mildew.

In order to really clean the lens, I don't recommending you take it apart unless you have the patience to reassemble it.

You may need to clean the physical gears. But I'll leave that for another day.
