Re: Rain damage ,
Remove batteries and do not try to switch it on.
Squirt some WD40 in the battery chamber then fill it with tissue to soak up moisture and leave in a warm dry place for a couple of days.
The longer the better.
Make sure the batteries are in good condition
If if does not come on then.
Then presume it is dead.

You have two ways to handle that. First: (Just saying- if there is a water ''damage'' YOU CAN'T SEE IT.) So if you think you are professional in theese stuff you can take a screwdriver, open the camera and clean its parts.
Second: Take that to a real professional to fix it. (The minus is that you have to pay) And here we go:)
Remove the battery imediately, the memory card and the lens. Place the
camera body, lens and memory card in a warm dry and place for several
days to dry out completely. When the camers is dry, insert the battery, lens and memory card, turn on the camers and set the date and time. If the camers does not work charge the battery and try again. If it still does not work then you need to send it to the Nikon service centre for repair.

First thing to do whenever you suspect water damage is to take the batteries out, open as many doors and caps as possible, and let the device dry out for 2-3 times as long as you suspect it should take. Sometimes in humid environments you can put the device in a container and dump in some clean dry rice. Cover it and let the dry rice pull some of the moisture out. Don't let rice get in the camera :) As a last resort, you can disassemble the camera as far as you feel comfortable, then dump some denatured alcohol in and around the screen to help flush out the water and possibly clean any residue left on contacts by the drying water. After this, again let the camera dry out completely before even reassembling. If it still doesn't work, it may be time to get a new camera. Good luck!
Leave it in a dry environment for a few days until everything dries. I'm afraid the camera is permanently damaged if the rain has salt or chemical content. Hopefully it doesn't and it's just a matter of drying out.
Given the complete lack of any further details then I can only give you the standard answer: water and digital cameras don't mix.
When they do it almost always means that the camera is beyond any possibility of economic repair and must be replaced. The very few that do survive are normally like a newspaper that's been caught in the rain: it may dry out, but is never fully useful again.
You may keep it turned off until all the external parts and the battery compartments get dry. Furthermore, since the Camera has got wet in rain so there is possibility that rain water may have imbibed inside the Camera thus causing mechanical failure.
So, if the Camera doesn't turn ON even after drying it completely and charging the Battery fully. In that case, service will be required.
