Question about JVC Everio GZ-HD7 Camcorder
My camcorder was damaged on a weekend shoot at a beach. To make a short story shorter. The camera WAS NOT submerged in water, but water splashed the lense which didn't have a protective housing. I dried all the water on the outside with a towel & used a blow dryer to penetrate the cracks on the inside. Still dead results. The next morning I notice a white residue from the salt water.
Being that I was'nt paid for the video shoot, my pockets are weak because there was nothing to review.
I thought of only 3 options to my problem:
(a) Consider it trash & purchase another
(b) Check a repair shop
(c) Rent A Camera
What's a reasonable solution?
Try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .
it sounds crazy .
Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.
Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.
It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).
beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.
This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.
