Question about Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Will not turn on.

There is probably no solution to my problem, but it is worth a try to see if anyone knows a way to fix it. My camera got wet and now will not turn on. Is there anything i can do, or is it now just a paperweight?

SD1100 got wet,now LCD sceen is completely black when power is on, it is not working, how much to get fixedor new one is cheaper than get fixed?

Probably not worth the time and money to fix it. One last try, you can take the battery out and put both camera and battery into a bag of dry rice (uncooked of course :) make sure it's completely covered and leave for a few days. Sometime, this will completely absorb the moisture in gadgets that got wet and it might work again. Since you tried turning it on after it got wet, it might not work b/c something may have shorted out.

We got our x1 wet. can it be fixed or is it not worth it? thanks scott

wet is never good. Rarely is it worth it to even try once it has dried. I did see one on eBay for 130+18 s/h

The LCD touch screen is not lit. Sometimes camera does not turn on. It got wet in a heavy thunderstorm.

It's probably fried by the water. Your only hope is to set it aside for a couple weeks, and let it thoroughly dry out, then try it again. But probably you already tried to turn this one on while it was still wet, and that fried the circuitry. If so, you're outta luck. Sorry! Next time something electronic gets wet, do that but don't EVER try to turn it on while it's still wet.Gotta give it LOTS of time to dry out inside in order to have any hope of a recovery.

Canon SD550 wont turn on.

A few things to check...
1. Make sure the card/batt door is seated correctly and if you can see the micro switch ... make sure it's making contact when the door closes.
2. Check your battery contacts for bent/broken tabs etc.
3. Make sure the on/off button is making contact when pushed..
Not sure if these will help but worth a check...
let me know if you have any success.

Kodak DC 290 E 11 Error Message

What a shame! I remember wanting a 290 pretty badly but couldn't afford it. You probably have already tried it without a card. If the camera doesn't work with no memory card, then it has to be the camera that is broken. Batteries okay? Worth cleaning the contacts and trying some brand new high quality Alkaline batteries just in case that is the problem. I think that camera connects to a computer and has a utility program that runs on the computer (and can be downloaded from The utility program might provide more information or even be able to replace the camera's firmware. Sorry, I don't have a solution - just sympathy. Don't be too upset with Kodak. If they built their cameras to be repaired easily they would be more expensive and no one would buy them. I lost my camera due to one second of inattention when I fell out of a canoe and got it wet.
