T100 got drenched with ocean water. Is it completely ruined?

Camera did not get dropped in ocean. Just a light spray of water from a wave. It has not come on since. Thought it just needed to dry, but I guess not.

When do tsunamis happen


Tsunamis happen when there is an underwater earthquake, causing the ocean floor to move violently up or down. When the ocean floor moves like that, the water above it has to go somewhere so it spreads out in a very fast wave. The wave is a tsunamis.

Took the Canon Power Shot on a fishing charter at Coasta Rico. Camera was dampened in a bag with a wave of salt water. Not drenched but dampened. Took batteries out and dried camera for 7 days and still...


Saltwater? I don't think you're going to revive this camera. If it were fresh water - you'd have a fighting chance - but salt water is highly corrosive and is a much better electrical conductor than fresh water. Even if you managed to get the camera work right after it got wet - chances are the salt would eventually "work its magic" and corrode metal circuits inside the camera and cause it to fail - much the way salt "eats cars" in areas that roads are treated with salt in winter to control ice.

If you ever have a water problem with something not designed to get wet, place the item in a bowl of uncooked rice. Cover completely and let it sit a day or two. The dry rice will wick away water and moisture on and inside the device. If doused in salt water, the water will be absorbed - but salt deposits are left behind, as salt can not be evaporated.

I know it wasn't what you wanted to hear... good luck.

Turning on a wet camera almost certainly will fry the circuits. Salt water will continue to corrode the electronics inside the camera. Start shopping and be careful next time.

I dropped my samsung dual camera in the ocean. I took the battery out right away and Let it dry for few days. I even tried using a blow dryer to give it warm heat. It still won't turn on all the way, but...


The problem with dropping it in the ocean is the salt. Unless something can be immediately well flushed with pure water, the salt coats and corrodes as it dries. There is no getting around that you need to take it to a serviceman for at least cleaning, possibly parts replacement if they are destroyed.

Causes of Tsunami


Tsunami is a Japanese word meaning ''huge wave'' that refers to a series of large ocean waves. It is caused basically due to underwater earthquake, Richter magnitude exceeding 7.5 to produce a destructive tsunami.


Concept can be summarized as follow:


The earth is constantly moving on large tectonic plates. When these tectonic plates moves past each other, collide and/or slide under one another an earthquake results. This is what happened with the recent tsunami that devastated Southern Asia. A massive earthquake in the Indian Ocean measuring 10.0 on the Richter scale jolted the seabed causing the sudden displacement of a very large volume of water. The earthquake temporarily produces a fluctuation in the mean sea level of a specified area. Waves quickly form as the displaced water tries to recapture equilibrium by filling the vacuum that was created. Tsunamis are a series of extremely long waves that are created after a large volume of water is displaced. The amount displaced must be significant enough to create waves underwater in the vast ocean. Waves are formed as the displaced water mass moves under the influence of gravity to regain its equilibrium. The larger the displacement, the larger the wave generated.

Can the sony cyber-shot dsc-t100 be reparied after it has been dropped into water?


I would not recommend to get repaired that camera which was dropped in water. It will need main board and lens assembly replacement that would cost almost new camera price.
New camera purchase is better.
Thanks.

Oh boy, ocean water has salt in it, which just
eats away at the electronics of the camera.
Salt water is worse than fresh water, but any water can cause damage.

Self-timer light stays on


Salt Water is like the Acid in a car battery...once you drop a camera in the ocean its basically Done! Salt water is a conductor of electricity and will short out parts of the circuit board(s). The best thing you could have done was take it apart and have the circuit boards Sonically cleaned by a jeweler or a place that has the capability to sonically clean electronics. This involves Total disassembly of your camera however. Sometimes its not worth it.Sounds like you still have some salt residue inside the contacts that tell the camera that the self timer switch is "made" or Shorted.
Some CRC Electronic cleaner may work as well...thats the easiest solution. Take it apart and Drench the boards, Contacts with Electro cleaner. Thats where I would start if you can remember how to put things back together.
