My Sony Camera fell in the sea water, can it still be fix? How?


Salt water damage is very bad for electronic devices, especially if the device was switched on at the time when it was dropped into salt water.
The cost of repair if you can get someone to repair it would most like be very expensive.
I would recommend you purchase a new camers, it most likely be a later and better model.

We dropped our camera in the water. We dried it out and put it in Rice for 4 days. It still will not turn on. Any ideas?


You've done all you can. Water damage is rarely recoverable and by now the water will have left corrosion internally which cannot be fixed.

The only chance your camera had was if the immersion had been in clean fresh water, had been very brief with the camera powered down at the time of immersion, and immediately after recovery it needed the memory card and batteries removed, a thorough shaking with all body caps removed and then straight into warm dry air. Even then, success would have been a matter of luck.

Professional repairers will not touch water-damaged cameras unless they are very rare and expensive and even then they will not guarantee their work.

Sorry, but your camera is as dead as if it had been crushed or incinerated; your only fix is to replace it.

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.

Camera was dropped in water for just seconds. It won't change between modes: play, video rec, and still shot. It is constantly in still shot mode. The battery dies quickly. I bought a new battery and it...


Water has got inside the camera and is causing the problems you have stated.
The battery is discharging quickly due to the water damage and the pictures you are able to still take have symptoms of over exposure, most likely caused by water in the lens.
The cost to try and repair would almost certainly match that of buying another camera. Just depends on who you send it to to have it looked at.

Water in my Camera? What the heck


Depending on the mineral content of the water inside, drying it with any available access doors open over a warm (not hot) source, for several days may restore operation.

Camera got damp (not even wet) & now won't turn on.


It is possible that the there is still some water inside and it will not evaporate because it is enclosed. Even if the water evaporates, it may leave some conductive residue. The water may be on some circuit boards and inside some connectors.

If the camera is worth servicing, I would not recommend that you open the camera yourself and un-assemble the boards and connectors to clean everything. If you are not experienced at this type of work, it is very easy to do more damage from handling the boards and connectors. These cameras are very delicate inside.

There is the other aspect, that if the water got on to some sensitive components on the circuit board, there can be some damage to the the parts. The water being conductive can act like a short and cause permanent damage. The fix in this case would be to change the circuit board(s) that are in failure.

Your best bet would be to give the camera to the manufacture service rep to have an estimate for repair. If your camera is under warranty, and they find water damage inside, the warranty will be void.

Next time you go water rafting or out in the rain with your camera, make sure you get a model that you can invest in the water-proof kit for your camera. It will be a lot cheaper than fixing the camera or buying a new one.
