Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N1 Digital Camera
My water bottle was leaking and made my entire bag a puddle. My DSC-N1 was in my bag, and it was about a minute or so until I realized my bag was soaked. I immediately took all my stuff out of my bag and tried to save everything. I put the camera in an open drawer and began saving some important papers I also had in there.
Once I finished rescuing the papers, I forgot about the camera, and, because I was running late, pushed the drawer closed. It was there for about seven or eight hours before I remembered it and took it out. I tried the power button and it wouldn't turn on. I took the battery out and am now charging the battery. I'm really worried though.
Is my DSC-N1 completely done for? Or is there even the slimmest chance that it could be even slightly water-resistant?
I agree with Turbo76 but if water damaged, you may have fried a chip. The reason the lens crawls is because of water in the gears. If you have patience, you can probably take it apart. There are a few screws on the outside and the front just pops off. Not really hard to do.
If you feel like working on it, I would first power it on and remove the batter so that the lens is out. This will allow you to wipe the surface.
I would then remove the outer screws and lift up the face. There are two tabs that you need to flip up in order to remove the ribbon cables. There are only two of them.
And the lens assembly just lifts out. No screws....
Once out, try to carefully wipe anything down, and try to clean out any wetness that may still be present or mildew.
In order to really clean the lens, I don't recommending you take it apart unless you have the patience to reassemble it.
You may need to clean the physical gears. But I'll leave that for another day.
