Bad news! Sorry but electronics and water (vodka n coke) don't mix well, even just a little. Even if you removed the battery immediately, and let it dry over night, it probably still wouldn't work again. Even if it does come on the coke would make the keys and switches lock up. Sorry.

Only the Manual Mode of my Nikon D20 camera is functioning after part of it (lens part) was accidentally drowned in water. The shutter button cannot be released with the other programs. There is this "F--"...


The F-- or FEE error has its origin in a lens. Could be the Diafragma switch is not blocked in the highest aperture setting, or the camera does not see there is a lens connected (Or a lens with no CPU)
I think your lens became defect caused by the water. Water is a killer for al electronic equipment. Be aware that even the old AF lenses, from the eighties already have a CPU, making it possible to recognise them when connected to a camera.
I can't say what went wri=ong in your lens, but is it is a very good (expensive one) it could be worth while to bring it to a service centre. If it was a cheap one, just buy a new one, or one on ebay, because that could be much cheaper. Don't try to repair it yourself, because without knowledge and correct tools it won't be possible.

Let wife use camera over weekend. She says some guy spilled a big cup of water on it. No power. No visible water or residue. Tried disassembly of back for visual inspection. The back cover would not...


There's a trick I've read about for cell phones with water damage, it's placing the damaged phone in a bowl of uncooked rice - completely covering it. Leave it for a couple days & check it out. 1st I would remove the battery & dry it best as i could and maybe swab inside battery compartment with a q-tip and then let the rice try & absorb what it can for 2-3 days & see.

Lens error. I took my camera to a water park and accidentally someone splashed water and since then the lens is out,and i' unable to close the lens. It says lens error. Please suggest a best possible way...


it may have caused damage to the lens or the dirt in the water may have got stuck in the joints which makes it jammed. keep it to dry and then blow air over it..

Orange light stays on and camera doesnt switch on


Water is second only to fire as being the most destructive thing you can subject your camera to.

Sorry, but it is a write-off. Even after drying out there will be residual and ongoing corrosion and retained moisture in internal components. This is specifically why your warranty is invalidated by such damage and why no camera repairer will even attempt a repair.

All you can do is to see whether you can claim for accidental damage on any insurance policies which you may have.

Okay i got pepsi in my camera, so now when i put batteries in the green light turnson and stays on but nothing is displayed on the lcd.


There is nothing you can do. You've just got a sugary acidic liquid into your camera which has presumably partially dried by now.

Even if you could remove the sugar residues (difficult:you'd have to soak parts the camera in distilled water) there will still be residual damage caused by carbonic acid, and this will continue to corrode the camera circuitry for months. If you've used a sugar-free Pepsi variety, then there will be no sugar residue but the acid will still be present.

Sorry, but your camera is a write-off. Even a professional repairer would refuse to attempt fixing your camera: the cost would exceed the camera's value and the ongoing internal corrosion would make it likely what you'd soon return for warranty work which would make no money for the repairer.

There's only one thing you can try. Soak it it Coca-Cola...'Cos "Coca-Cola Adds Life".

That last bit WAS a joke...

My Sony Cybershot Camera was dropped in water accidentally the other day. I have let it dry out as much as possible for 2 days. When I tried to use it, the camera still takes pics as it did before but it...


Try this and rate me if useful :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Spilled cola on my coolpix, one side of the screen is dark


You should take this to an authorized repair shop. You might be able to get the glass cover off, but it will be a mess and then your going to have to glue it back on. Like I said...a mess. Save a headache and take it to a shop.

I dropped my nikon L3 in the water and now it doesn't work...only 1 year old and only briefly in the water ..any suggestions or is it not worth trying to fix..Its a coolpix L3


i had a cell phone and i wore it out completely, i dropped it ALL THE TIME, i would accidentally leave it out in the rain, i would accidentally have it go through the washer and dryer, and yes i did have it dropped in water completely also!! it was my first phone but it wasnt that long ago, like a year and a half ago. everyone i asked what to do about would say that RIGHT AFTER IT HAPPENS to blow it with a blowdryer and dont try to turn it on, just leave it to dry. and thank god but everytime it would come back on and work everytime. i did have alot of trouble after a while of its damage though, like when i would go to turn it back on after it being in water it would vibrate uncontrollably, it would take over a minute to turn it on and the battery would run out very fast!!!

i hope i gave you some good info. but who knows it could be too late or the blowdryer could possibly not let it work again!! sorry!!

Drowned Sony Cybershot S650


Hi Tc77,

Your camera can be fixed but it will be expensive to change the lcd screen your best bet is to buy a new camera as with a new camera your can get accidental damage cover so if anything like this happens you now the camera can be fix or replaced this is just a suggestion of option.
