Re: panasonic camcorder

Unless you want it repaired professionally, all I can suggest is leaving it for a good few days - weeks even - on a sunny window ledge or airing cupboard. If you're lucky, the water will just be temporarily affecting the electronics, and it might sort itself out when completely dry. If you are unlucky, there may be some corrosion which will remain even after it's dried out. If it looks like coming back to life, remove the tape as soon as you can, run a tape cleaner through it, and use a new tape.

My dvx100b got wet

If your camera gets wet, best bet is to take it to an Authorized service centre right away. They can open it up and clean up the boards.

If you are talking about salt water, get there ASAP. Salt is the worst as it corrodes into the boards. Once the corrosion sets in, and depending on where it sets, you are going to get an unreliable and possibly expensive to repair camera.

The tape will be badly damaged if trapped in camera, this always happens when the camera has got dirty heads and capstan rollers, some times the door wont open if this happens, but if it does open your local camera shop may get the film out.

Dry it up with your hair dryer without heat. After you are sure the device has dried up then charge the battery with the device off. When the battery charges, power n the device. The problem could be that some traces of water are still there inside the device.
