Question about Canon Rebel Cameras

Liquid soap inside the screen

My shower soap spilled inside my bag and some went in my camera screen. The screen is still working but there is a shadow in the back. I am wondering if i should just open the screen and wipe the soap or if there is an other solution...

The soap is probably between the back light and the LCD itself, on one of the plastic Fresnel screens. You may be able to clean it off with Windex on a Q-tip. Remove back cover (can't give directions without knowing which model)

    I'm scared to break it if i try to open it, or to ruin the screws... (But the shops wont give me an approximation of the cost, they want me to pay for an evaluation... :/ I don't have the money right now)

    I can only suggest calling around to find a repair service that gives free estimates. Canon has a fixed price on Rebels of something like $190 no matter the problem.

SOURCE: I got my camera wet!!!

basically a bubble blower has a thick concentrated solution of soap. if any amount of this solution happens to enter even the lense assembly and you have given enough time to dry it up , it must be creating a friction in the movement of the lense assy. this will not allow the camera to switch on and will make noise.

SOURCE: Pop spilled on camera

I think you can consider this is a water damaged item since water has been immersed into the mainboard which cause sensor failure. Camera internal components were very fragile and I suggest you not open it if you really don't know what is inside unless you have opened it once. I have fixed cameras for my friend before but mostly with part failure not water damaged and I believe your is just partial damaged only. Below is some help links to direct you how to fix your own camera: and other easy way is go to google search URL window or Yahoo and type Casio Digital Camera Service Guides, then they will provide you a lot of links where you can get information to fix your camera. I hope this help.

Canon Rebel EOS T3 - camera has power but there is no LCD display whatsoever.

Has the camera been dropped or had a liquid spilled on it? Sound like a circuit failure. However, if it has been dropped it may indicate that one of the flexes has come out or the little flipper on the flex connector has popped up and the connector is not working.

Pivoting glass shower screen over bath "screams" when moved

You can use WD-40 on the pivoting part, spray a little on the hinge part when the shower door is mostly closed and also mostly open, open and close the shower a few times so the stuff can penetrate it, and Make sure to tighten any loose screws, and brush out any grime using a toothbrush and liquid soap. Wipe the drops of wd-40.

You should be set, cheers!

Is there anything to do for when soda pop gets in camera and it doesn't work

Its depend on the quantity of the soda or drink spilled on the camera you are using. Use the blower to dry the liquid and do not use it at least 10 to 12 hrs. Allow more time to drying.

I'm sorry, but once you spill liquid on an electronic product you can kiss it good bye. Especially liquid with sugar or salt content. These products are highly corrosive and develop permanent damage to a circuit board. You may not see the results of the damage until later since corrosion develops in time.

Spilled liquid on PSP

Try putting it in a bag of rice for a day or so, because rice absorbs moisture, so it might draw out any water still inside. Hope this helps.
