Sony Digital Camera got dunked

Have Sony Cybershot DSC W100 camera. It got dunked in a toilet for about 2 seconds. Since then it won't work. I dried it off and applied low heat to dry it out.( happened about 6 months ago) It won't turn on. Anybody know what parts probably got damaged. Is it worth fixing? I paid about $200 for it. Is it possible to buy parts for the camera? It is out of warranty.

Sorry to say that once the camera comes in deep water , all parts get rusty and specially the ccd becomes faulty , u can still check some solutions

1. Check the batteries replace them , see the terminals i mean contacts where the batteries remain check for rusty contacts if there is some rust try removing it with some liquid used to remove rust.

2. if u have power supply like adapter try it on that see if power comes on..

3. check out the memory card is it faulty or got rusty replace it . some cameras dont power up when card is faulty.

4. u can get its circuit board washed buy some local technician in ur area try it there bcoz if u go to sony they will charge u more and return it or u can atleast get a quote from them if they diagnose ur problem free , but in this case i dont think that much is left bcoz once these parts getts rust they no more work like IC chips transistors, very small parts in there .

pls check the solutions and rate me if u find me helpful

Pics are not getting transferred from sony cybershot DSC-w100 to the laptop. the folder is not opening.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Sorry Hitesh,
there is no option to use it as a webcam.
some third-party softwares are available for it. But those will be cause of damage your camera after using 2-3 hours.
