Poolsman is right even a Hi Spec camera in these circs would be a write off Cheaper camera are very often considered 'disposable' just like a toaster or Kettle.

Re: Digital Camera Repair

Do not waste your time having a qualified person even opening the camera because camera is very likely a write off ( would have to replace the maun p.c. board and probably the lens unit complete... too expensive ! ) .

How to repair my camera kodak m522 because of water

You should have removed the battery immediately, and dried the camera for several days in a warm and dry area. Then replace the battery and hopefully the camera works again.
I suggest you take your camera to a Kodak digital camera repairer and get a quote for a repair. If maybe cheaper to put your money towards a new digital camera.

When my sony camera was drop in the water there is possible to repair it? my sony camera was drop in the sea water. its possible to repair?

Highly unlikely that it can be repaired, salt water caused corrosion and will short out electronic components when the battery is connected.
I suggest you put your money towards a new camera.

Hi! I got a Canon rebel XT. problem... the camera is dead

Like all electronics, water is it's worst enemy so even by drying it (which is commendable) you still may have traces of water somewhere on the circuit board. We all know water is conductive, so if some solder tracks were shorted there can be a problem there or if the water has corroded through a solder track the circuit fails. There are numerous chips in the camera that are super tiny so even the slightest water can damage them.

In my experience when something is water damaged (and seriously water damaged) it is beyond repair.

I have dropped the camera in sea water.from then not working.

If you ever do this again then you must immediately rinse the camera in freshwater, remove the battery and get it to a repair outlet immediately. Even then your camera will likely be unrepairable if it shows any symptoms after the accident.

Sea water is about the worst thing you can subject a camera to as it's electrically conductive. When the camera dries out, salt crystals form inside and cause physical damage and chemically attack the camera to corrode it.

Sorry, but in my experienced opinion your camera is a total write off and I don't know any professional repairers who would even attempt to fix this as it would almost certainly have to be returned to them for additional work as more faults show up afterwards.

My camera broke when I dropped in the water. what do I do now?

Hi, you can send it into sony to see if it can be repaired. Your only other option is replacement. Water is the worst thing for a digital camera or just about any electronic device.

The lens keeps going in and out and says lens error

was it ever dropped or stock somewhere moist? above all, not good news. The message indicates that the lens housing has beendented or otherwise damaged, preventing the camera from functioning.Your camera will require professional repair.

Kodak easyshare mx1063 camera was dropped and display is broken.

Sorry, but Kodak does not sell digital camera parts (except for the wrist strap) to consumers. Your options are basically to either send the camera to Kodak for repairs or purchase a "parts" camera for somewhere like eBay and use it to repair yours.
