Hi,

Try removing the battery and the memory. Use a hair dryer and blow to the openings. It would also help to shake it up and down a bit in the act of removing any left over water droplets.

Try again.

How can I clean my fry baskets?


Wipe down the baskets with dry paper towel to remove excess grease. Then submerge the baskets into a mixture of hot water and vinegar for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off with soapy water and dry.

Is there a fix to salt water immersion of camera?


Water, any kind of water is a conductor of electricity. If you truly dried out the camera and it will not power up it probably shorted out. The one thing that might clean any minerals or salts out of the camera that is readily available is rubbing alcohol. With the battery removed, submerge the camera in rubbing alcohol and swish it around, then drain it and let it dry. Do not use anything like a hair drier to do it because alcohol is flammable. After it is dry, install a charged battery and see if there is any sign that it powers up. This is a real long shot and I would use this as a last resort. Getting the camera fixed would probably cost as much as the camera. One other idea, if you have a Homeowner's Insurance policy, is to see if they would cover it.

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.

Camera Dropped in Water Fountain-Won't Work


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.

Dried water droplets on inside of lens


The camera lens will have to come completely apart, and all the pieces be cleaned. This is not something you can do yourself at home. Because there is water in the lens, there is the risk that the humidity will cause corrision of some of the pieces and electronics inside of the lens unit.

You an try leaving the camera in a dry warm place that is not more than about 100 deg F for a few days to see if the water will dry out. But, I am sure that there will be water stains inside on the lens surfaces.

deb - water damage = unfixable - I have heard courageous stories from people who dried out their players; the best scenario is that they can get it to work sometimes, every once in a while - sorry

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.
