Camera flooded, can I save my movies

We were using the camera in its underwater house and on the last day it flooded.  looks like the camera is done but the SD chip seems OK.  How can we download the pictures without going through the camera?

    I have a card reader and it will not read the SD card. According to the JVC book you can only download through the camera....does anyone else have a solution?

    I have tried the hair dryer.. no avail. Yes all the movies are on an external SD card.

If the card reader is not reading the SD card, then the card format is damaged.
As the damage is physical, there is no way recover the data using home equipment.

If files were importants then you can call the number listed on the following website, and pay a fee for recovery.

Ok here are the steps that I would try.

#1 DO NOT power up the camera again.

IF there is any chance of you recovering it, you cannot put any power to it.

Take a hair dryer and heat it up from about 6 inches away.

Does it have an internal mem card that you can remove?

    The JVC GZ-MG155 is equipped with a 30 GB internal, non-removable hard disk drive.

    Tell me how sure you are that the movies were recorded onto this external Chip/SD card. Did you format it through the camera and select it to be the recording path.

    If you did, it should be accessable through dos because you would have to have formated it through the camera. There has to be a file system on there somewhere, and at the dos level, it should tell you if there is a file system.

    I might try some recovery software,
    http://store.lexar.com/imagerescue3/inde...
    http://www.cardrecovery.com/download.asp get the trail version and if it works, it should show you something. You may have to buy it, and I'm sure there are free programs out there to do the same thing.

    Something to Try???


  • charles durando Jan 14, 2009

    I have a JVC with the same specs and I just triple checked
    you absolutlely should be able to read that in windows.

My Olympus fe 3010 became flooded with salt water when the underwater housing failed. Olympus service won't even look at it. Is there a way to dismantle the camera and clean the contacts. At this point I...


Cleaning the contacts is only one part of the problem. Salt water is corrosive and it got into the moving parts and also coated the lens elements. Your camera is toast and that's why Olympus won't bother with it.....they would have to replace virtually every piece. With labor costs, it would cost you as much as three times what you paid for it.

I have this camera, and there is a theme for it that says "Underwater" is this camera able to go underwater? The lense looks as if.


No, it is not water proof camera so unable to shoot underwater without water proof casing that is another product. Camera must be packed in water proof casing to take pictures underwater.
Click Sony Support link to download optional accessories brochure rleated to DSC-T700 and check AKP-THA water proof casing for this model.
Thanks.

Olympus 1030 SW Camera leaked through both the battery door seal and the usb door seal. Did my best to clean it up and dry it out. Camera was finicky in at first. After a day everything work great...


I have the same camera and has the same problem. Mine flooded twice and when I followed the normal dry it out, clean the seals, charge the battery, etc, etc... I was left with a camera that didn't work at all after the second flooding. I returned it to Olympus where they had to replace the motherboard and seals. My dive buddy also has the same camera, dived deeper and has had no problems with his flooding or fowling. Olympus was very good about fixing the problem and returning the camera quickly. If you get fixed or end up buying another underwater camera, I would recommend after each use underwater, especially in saltwater, cleaning the seals and applying very sparing amount of silicon gel on the seals. The gel will help protect the seals and add to the tightness of the seal. But, don't let it cake up in the camera. I use the gel to protect o-rings on underwater video camera housing seals and have had no problems with leaking. You can get the gel at most SCUBA or hardware stores.

Stupid camera


Either you have done something nasty to the camera when banging it or the camera is set at a higher megapixel resolution than you had it set at previously or the camera is saving photos to the internal memory, check the settings. You may have to re-format your memory card. PLease rate solution.
