Jerry, Good try with the hair dryer but it won't work. the damage has already been done, it's like dropping your television in the bath tub and praying it will still work. The repair cost is going to more than a new camera. I know because I repair cameras.

Can a gas powered blower be repaired if it was drooped in pool.


it's hard to get it running again...probably it's not worth a try...
- you should open the carburetor, dry and clean it.
then the spark plug has to be removed and dried with a blow torch, also inside the cylinder opening.
then you better buy a can of starter spray to ease a start procedure.

How to fix kurio 7 after dropped in water?


This is probably water damaged. You MIGHT get lucky with keeping it (powered off) in a bag of rice to wick the moisture out of the tablet and into the rice. Keep it there for a few days to keep it from getting damaged any further.

Hi My Nikon D5100 camera giving a sin of Autoexposure error after it's drooped from my tripod on the deck floor (Wooden Floor). How can I fix that? please help me, it's an emergency. Thanks!


This should be helpful.

Turn the lens to Manual mode (moving to M). Twist the very tip of the lens till it unlocks.

If you twist the lens on the end far enough on the end to the right you will find it "locks". This is what is causing the screeching sound,, it's locked and can't auto focus. Twist the very end to the left till it releases. This fixed it for me.

Regards,
Sean

I dropped my motorola droid in the water. what should i do?


Immediately remove the phone from the water,turn off the cell phone remove the battery and SIM card. When you have driedthe cell phone by putting in a warm sunny place for several days or in front ofa warm fan heater for several hours then reassemble the phone. Hopefully itwill work properly but if does not work then it is faulty and you need a newcell phone.

If it was dropped in water ,it must've fried the power chip.This Can Not Be fixed with a hair dryer...if you take it down to a computer repair shop they coul replace the chip for a price of around $400 (depend whether other parts or circuits have been harmed) I've done this before on my t100 and I spent at least $500 for the chip and the LCD screen.

Hey!

Go to your phone retailer and if you are still covered under warranty it will get fixed for free. Usually takes 4-8 weeks.


Hope this helped!

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.

If you drop your phone in water, there's no cure it will drown,
Water and electrical devices, whether AC or DC do not mix very well.
The only thing you can do is take all the removable parts off, and dry them using a low heat hair dryer. Some bits and pieces can be changed, but it will end up costing you just as much as buying another phone, near enough anyway.
I would put it down to, a bit of bad history best forgotten and I would buy another phone. It might work OK after a while of leaving it in the sun, but in the end it all depends on how long the phone was in water.
