    Bruce thanks for the suggestion. I was rather impatient to see if my camera was still ok. It was suggested that I put the camera in a bag with some dry rice, which should absorb any moisture. I did this and left it overnight. I had heard this solution before but was rather scepticle. Yes, it does work. Thanks for the suggestion.

Take the battery out, let the camera dry for a few days or use a hair dryer, then try the battery again. you may have to buy a new battery. in any case give it some time to dry out

Water in camera

Remove the batteries and let it dry for good. To be sure all the damp on electronics evaporated. Put the camera on warm place (not to hot). You need to open all doors (SD card, battery etc..) even back cover to let the damp go out. Blowing dry air may accelerate the drying process.
Install batteries when you sure all the water trapped inside has evaporated completely.

I have had L810 for 13 months. Camera will not turn on> Changed & checked batteries

hello,if you have had your camera stored away in a damp environment/ or maybe dropped it? it could also have the main power input terminals corroded,or even dislodged or broken,so therefore no live current is going beyond the initial primary stage,if an excessively damp environment?then you need to place it near a warm location,and leave for a few days with the back open(obviously do protect from dust)and try to switch on again with a known good battery pack,failing that,take it to an electronic's repair shop,and have them take a look at it,it just may only be a minor battery/power input problem,ok. hope that helps, cheers.

sorry. I can't say because I don't know if you are fixing your car or stealing one. Best bet is to call the dealership or hit up google.

I have an S! Pro Finepix, which I got in A condition. I recently took it out on a rainy day, it never got wet, but after about 10 frames, it started to shoot erratically. I shut it down and bagged it away,...

The Fuji S1 Pro is not a sealed camera, it's full electronic and vulnerable to moister. Hot and humid conditions will cause these cameras to fog and not just this camera either Nikon's and Canon will do the same so lets not point a finger at any one brand. Dampness is bad news for any camera that is not sealed and even sealed the camera can be moisture damaged through the lens. By hooking up the power supply you may have shorted out the damp circuity. That's already done and we can't back up so I'm suggesting that you place it on a warm register ( I don't know what climate you are in) or in a window with sun light heat on it OR and you got to be careful with this. I've placed my Nikon EM on a food warming tray to dry it out after a dunking it took, the camera wasn't submerged but got damp in the camera bag. I just hope you haven't scorched the electronics that's a nice little camera. Sorry for the bad news.

Camera got damp been throughly dried but does not switch on.

What exactly do you mean by "damp"? When you say "thoroughly dried", do you mean you buried it in a bowl of dry rice for a week before even attempting to turn it on? If you didn't, you may have fried the circuits.

Camera got damp and now no power.

Camera may not be completely dry if you are still in a moist rich environment. If you have access, try using a blow dryer. (ON LOW SETTING as to not melt anything!)
