You can have your tapes recorded on to CD, but you have to send them out to someone? If you are intrested just google "Hi 8 film" and look for the hits with transfer capabilty on them. Hope this helps! I am about 99 percent sure that your camera is toasted!

My phone was submerged in water for about 90 seconds. Will it still work and how long should I wait before trying it?

You should probably wait for a few days to ensure it's completely dry on the inside. I have heard other folks suggest that putting the phone in a bowl of white rice for a few days is a great way to dry it out. The rice will absorb the moisture.

Did the case cover the entire phone or just the sides and back like most?

Flip left outdoors for two months

You may be able to recover the camera to previous functionality if you disassemble the camera and clean the PCB's (printed circuit boards) of dew/water staining.
Spray the lens with WD-40 to stop it seizing and put the rest of the components in dry warm place for a couple of days so they can dry out.
Reassemble the camera and try to power it up.

Good luck.

Drop GE A1230 digital camera in water. Let dry and now wont power

Unfortunately, there are several parts that may be damaged with water. It doesn't matter if it's already dry. Water contains lots of minerals and other material that are conductive. Once the water evaporated, the conductive materials stays in the electronics.

As you have a broken camera anyway, you can try:

* Using a hair dryer, blow some hot air (no the hottest level) inside the camera. protect display away from the heat.

* Get a new camera to replace the damaged one.

Sorry Ricky, I don't think it can be fixed.

Dropped jvc camcorder GZ-MG630 in sea water. in for 2 seconds. what do I do?

if you're confident in your ability to strip down such a delicate piece of kit:

get a bottle of pure acetone (molar, not nail polish remover - this contains lanolin which will destroy the electronics) and use it to displace the water and mineral deposits contained therein from the boards, then after ensuring the entire surface of every component is bone dry, reassemble.

If you're not so confident, find someone who's mad enough to try.

You can try taking out the battery and putting the phone in a bag of Rice, the Rice is a drying agent, it will take 2-3 days, if the phone works you are good, if not you will need to replace it. The rule here of course is water and electronics do not make a happy pair.

There is a good chance that the phone will work once dried...but make sure it is totally dry (try to absord all water ad give it a few days to dry out) before attempting to turn on. If you take it part and dry out the parts...even better.

Camera won't power on from battery or power adaptor!

Water has got inside the camcorder. Dry it out gently in the airing cupboard for a week, then try again.
