Try to open the camera (front/back) then try gently a blow dryer so the moisture can go out?

Camera may not be completely dry if you are still in a moist rich environment. If you have access, try using a blow dryer. (ON LOW SETTING as to not melt anything!)

Is there too much moisture today to paint ,dan Edwards paint the outside of a house


Hi Sheri

I trust you are well

I would suggest you paint in a dry sunny day when your walls are free from damp and moisture, all paint will take best on dry walls.

Hope this helps

Kind regards

I unknowingly spilled water on my Nikon Coolpix L120.


One thing I've done, which might be too late for is submerge my electronic device (cell phone, remote controls, etc) in 99% rubbing alcohol. The logic behind it is, alcohol is non conductive so it wont create shorts, combines with water and evaporates faster than water.

I think at this point your best option is to find something to draw the moisture out of the camera. You need to remove the battery until this process is done as well. Rice (dry uncooked) does a decent job of absorbing moisture. Whatever the case is, you will have to get all the optics cleaned after its dried out.

What can I do to turn on my digital camera after it was submerged in water?


First of all you should get (or have gotten) the battery out as soon as possible. You could try shaking excess water out of it. You should then put it in rice to draw all the moisture out of the camera. This may take a couple of days, maybe exchange with more dry rice after first day. When you are relatively sure all moisture is gone try reinstalling the battery. I will guess that you will only have a 20% chance of it ever working again.

98 altima has trubble starting in really damp wet weather. change pulgs and wires already.


if it only does this in damp weather, its more likely its in the ignition system. if it has a distributor check the cap for moisture and cracks. if it does have a cap. spray wd-40 inside cap to displace the moisture. WD stands for water displacement. when its dry outside and engine running. get a spray bottle and fill it with water, spray the dist. cap and wires. if there is a problem the car will chug and almost stall out. if this happens, thats the problem. have a good day !!

I have an S! Pro Finepix, which I got in A condition. I recently took it out on a rainy day, it never got wet, but after about 10 frames, it started to shoot erratically. I shut it down and bagged it away,...


The Fuji S1 Pro is not a sealed camera, it's full electronic and vulnerable to moister. Hot and humid conditions will cause these cameras to fog and not just this camera either Nikon's and Canon will do the same so lets not point a finger at any one brand. Dampness is bad news for any camera that is not sealed and even sealed the camera can be moisture damaged through the lens. By hooking up the power supply you may have shorted out the damp circuity. That's already done and we can't back up so I'm suggesting that you place it on a warm register ( I don't know what climate you are in) or in a window with sun light heat on it OR and you got to be careful with this. I've placed my Nikon EM on a food warming tray to dry it out after a dunking it took, the camera wasn't submerged but got damp in the camera bag. I just hope you haven't scorched the electronics that's a nice little camera. Sorry for the bad news.

My olympus 1040 was dropped in water for a few seconds,i dried it out and now it will turn on but screen is blank,is there anything i can do or is it only fit for the bin..........


Solution: The most important thing to remember if your digital camera should be partially or fully submerged in water is to act quickly. Once your camera is out of the water, avoid the urge to turn the camera on to see if it works and instead remove the batteries immediately to prevent shorting any of the internal electrical components. Remove your memory card also, otherwise you may lose the pictures you’ve already taken and saved to the card.

Leaving the battery and memory card compartments open, dab away any excess water with a dry cloth or paper towel. Then, use a household hairdryer set to the lowest heat or no-heat setting and blow dry the camera for 10 to 15 minutes.

Although the outside of the camera may be dry, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. If any moisture is left within the camera, it may, over time, grow mold, which can interfere with the camera’s operation. If the camera was dropped into a chlorinated swimming pool or a saltwater lake, your camera’s components may suffer corrosion over time, and your camera will eventually stop working.

To help draw moisture out of the camera, pack your camera in a bowl filled with silica gel (the packets of small transparent beads often found in various foods, electronics, and clothing packages) or uncooked rice. Both materials can absorb and hold excess water that may be left in your camera. Leave your camera to dry for at least 24 to 48 hours. Once you are certain that your camera has completely dried out, insert fully charged batteries and press the Power button. With any luck, your camera will function properly. If not, you may try contacting a camera repair company to ask advice or inquire about repair options.

Is there a fix to salt water immersion of camera?


Water, any kind of water is a conductor of electricity. If you truly dried out the camera and it will not power up it probably shorted out. The one thing that might clean any minerals or salts out of the camera that is readily available is rubbing alcohol. With the battery removed, submerge the camera in rubbing alcohol and swish it around, then drain it and let it dry. Do not use anything like a hair drier to do it because alcohol is flammable. After it is dry, install a charged battery and see if there is any sign that it powers up. This is a real long shot and I would use this as a last resort. Getting the camera fixed would probably cost as much as the camera. One other idea, if you have a Homeowner's Insurance policy, is to see if they would cover it.

My camera got wet in the snow and it comes on but


Hello

Ok, you just might be able to safe this device, but, there is a possibillity that yoou need to send the camera in so that the dried damp on the inside of the lens itself can be removed.

This is something that i suggest that you do not try yourself, as the disassembley of the lens is a very complicated task.

If the damp inside the lens is still wet, put the camera in a sealed container with about 3 cups of rice. Leave it in the sealed container for about 3 days.

If this does not work, the water damp is already dried, thus, the lens itself needs to be disassembled. This will cost about $40 to repair.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

Z20fd got wet in my daughter's purse


If an electronic device gets wet or is submerged, DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON! In most instances,this short circuits/damages the device. If you let the device dry for 3 to 10 days, it may clear of moisture, and work without short circuiting. If the device was immersed in fresh-water, that is.

If it was immersed in salt water, the likelihood of damage and failure is almost guaranteed.
