Re: Camera that went for a dip.

I would have immediately taken out the batteries.  (perhaps a tip for next time.)

Unfortunately your camera may be dead.  But with small electronics like that , you can sometimes get lucky if you disassemble them a bit so air can pass through them freely, and leave them alone without a power source for awhile.  I have revived 4 cell phones that way..In 2 cases there were side effects... 1 could no longer charge a battery and the other could not get a cellular signal. Worth a try.


Hope this helps

My camera was working completely fine and then after taking a picture it just went black, lens out and not moving. so i plugged it into my computer, thinking maybe it needed to be charged, but got nothing....

Since this camera is fairly new, it may be worth your while to go to the website and call the support repairs department. Even if the camera is not under warranty, you may be able to get repairs for little or nothing.
This may depend on if it is a common problem.
Before you call, make sure the battery is either new or charged fully.
If the camera has been dropped, accidentally got water inside, or other damage in most cases will void all kinds of warranties.
If the camera simply stopped working with full charge or new batteries, then you indeed should call Nikon.

Dropped Kodak Easyshare M1030 camera and lens is stuck on zoom and will not come on.



Above is the link of Kodak's Helpdesk wherein you can browse for some tip. Since the camera was accidentally dropped, I believe you need to consult this matter to your nearest Authorized Dealer.

Thank you.

Orange light stays on and camera doesnt switch on

Water is second only to fire as being the most destructive thing you can subject your camera to.

Sorry, but it is a write-off. Even after drying out there will be residual and ongoing corrosion and retained moisture in internal components. This is specifically why your warranty is invalidated by such damage and why no camera repairer will even attempt a repair.

All you can do is to see whether you can claim for accidental damage on any insurance policies which you may have.

Es55 camera turned it self off ith the lens when you turn it on littlegreen light comes on then camera beeps and goes off after about 2 seconds

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that's preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera - which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean the battery contacts, place the batteries back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 80% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time to replace the batteries, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

I don't know whats wrong

Clean all battery acid off with a Qtip, a little water and baking soda. Wet tip of Qtip, dip in baking soda a rub on contacts, use clean Qtp with water only and reclean. Then blow all water out and dry completely. Buy a new battery, old on is leaking acid do not reuse. This should solve problem.

Power button gone

the best help u can get is from the service center of the camera.
else do one thing.
as am from india i dont know what place is the HUB to buy any kind of electronics items near your place.
if u go to that kind of place where all kinds of electronics goods like computers, digicams, electronic components, etc etc...
there they would take the power button from any other old camera and fix it in yours.
but one thing is u dont need to prefer for a new button. old one will work fine. even inn service center they have old buttons. so try in service center first. then try in shops.
