Question about Samsung HMX-W300

1 Answer

My hmx-w300 wont turn on

I was recording a video for youtube and it involved the shower water hitting the camera (to make it look like it was raining). When I was done recording I went to my room to watch it, guess what it worked perfectly. But I saw that my finger was in the way so I removed the video and then turned off the camera. About 5 minutes later I turned it back on and the video was still there so I removed it again but this time the camera made a loud EH sound and I couldn't turn if off. It turned off finally but now I can't on. What did I do wrong?

Was the camera in a watertight housing ? If not, you have probably ruined it by getting it wet.

My samsungw300 got water inside. Can I do anything to make it work again?

Don't power it on (assuming you think it still may work).

Put it on a shelf, open, then point a hairdryer at it, at a temperature you still can keep your hands in. Leave it in the warm air for half an hour. That should get the moisture out of the camera.
Since it is made to be waterproof, chances are that Samsung used better insulation than with most consumer electronics.

Good luck!

How can fix this problem

Does not look good. The fact the charger light won't change colour, could mean the battery can't get enough charge. The voltage stays too low. Check if the battery is put in correct in the camera.Check if the battery contacts are clean and shiny. also check the contacts in the camera. If you need to clean the contacts, don't use anything sharp. just a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Sharp tools will damage the camera and or the battery. If you have an external (universal) charger, try to charge the battery outside the camera.
I did write lots of things about batteries, because they are the most common reason for camera malfunction.

There is a reset button under the mini sd card slot. That should take care of it.
