If you dry it out you may get it to work but I think the cards are stacked against you. The lens will be junk when the water gets into it. You would be better off to go on Ebay or Amazon and buy another used camera.

I dropped my canon 60d in salt water this summer. It was brief but it was submerged. I believe it is dry now as it now turns on but it says error 70. Is this something that won't change or does my camera...


Hi Melissa. Salt water is very corrosive and is no friend of the delicate electronics found in today's cameras. In the old days of film cameras it was recommended to immediately switch off the camera and immerse it in distilled water to try and flush out any salt residue then sit it on a radiator and leave it to dry out.

You may be lucky, and I hope you are, but error 70 is a code found in many Canon cameras and means that there is a "hardware malfunction" this is not very specific and means a trip to a service centre where a technician can determine exactly what kind of error it is.
Further drying out won't make much more of a difference and the salt will still keep eating into the electronics.

My olympus 1040 was dropped in water for a few seconds,i dried it out and now it will turn on but screen is blank,is there anything i can do or is it only fit for the bin..........


Solution: The most important thing to remember if your digital camera should be partially or fully submerged in water is to act quickly. Once your camera is out of the water, avoid the urge to turn the camera on to see if it works and instead remove the batteries immediately to prevent shorting any of the internal electrical components. Remove your memory card also, otherwise you may lose the pictures you’ve already taken and saved to the card.

Leaving the battery and memory card compartments open, dab away any excess water with a dry cloth or paper towel. Then, use a household hairdryer set to the lowest heat or no-heat setting and blow dry the camera for 10 to 15 minutes.

Although the outside of the camera may be dry, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. If any moisture is left within the camera, it may, over time, grow mold, which can interfere with the camera’s operation. If the camera was dropped into a chlorinated swimming pool or a saltwater lake, your camera’s components may suffer corrosion over time, and your camera will eventually stop working.

To help draw moisture out of the camera, pack your camera in a bowl filled with silica gel (the packets of small transparent beads often found in various foods, electronics, and clothing packages) or uncooked rice. Both materials can absorb and hold excess water that may be left in your camera. Leave your camera to dry for at least 24 to 48 hours. Once you are certain that your camera has completely dried out, insert fully charged batteries and press the Power button. With any luck, your camera will function properly. If not, you may try contacting a camera repair company to ask advice or inquire about repair options.

DROPPED CANON POWERSHOT SX10 IS IN SALT WATER (NOT SUBMERGED). WILL NOT WORK. ALLOWED TO DRY OUT SEVERAL HOURS, INSERTED SD CARD AND BATTERIES. DOES NOT TURN ON.


First of all, it would take days, not hours to dry out. Turning it on too soon can fry the circuits. But worse than that, salt water is extremely bad for a camera. Most places won't even repair it.

I dropped my camera in the lake. It was submerged for probably 5 seconds. (Not shockingly...) It won't turn on now. Is there any hope that it might dry up and then work again?


If you tried to turn it on before the water completely evaporated (could take a week or more), you probably shorted the circuits.

hi there

those pics that youve saved are still there in the memory stick. the camera though, im no so sure if its retreiveable. even if you dried it, you said that it still wont work. what you can do for your camera is bring it to the service center and have it looked. your memory stick will work though if you cn\onnect it to a card reader/writer and have those pics saved to a media like cd or save it to your computer.

hope this helps.

Camera dropped in a bucket of water


I very much doubt it. If you had removed the batteries straight away, stripped the complete camera and let warm air waft over it for a day and then put it all back together and tried it, you may have been lucky. But wet circuit boards and electricity is asking for major problems. Even leaving a closed camera for 2 days wouldn't have given it a good drying out.
