The fact that it fell in salt water is proberly affecting it, try rincing it in pure clean water and then let it dry out, that might help. water shouldn't affect the phone, but the sault would.

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.

DROPPED CANON POWERSHOT SX10 IS IN SALT WATER (NOT SUBMERGED). WILL NOT WORK. ALLOWED TO DRY OUT SEVERAL HOURS, INSERTED SD CARD AND BATTERIES. DOES NOT TURN ON.


First of all, it would take days, not hours to dry out. Turning it on too soon can fry the circuits. But worse than that, salt water is extremely bad for a camera. Most places won't even repair it.

Dark Screen, Lense focus gone and error code: E61:00 - Help!


In this situation (salt water) best thing is rinsing the equipment immadiatelly with tap water and drying it throughly and quickly (with hair dryer etc.) But its been three days, so the internal circuitry and metallic mechanisms are most probably affected from salt water since its highly corrosive. Now, you can send it to your dealer/camera manufacturer for throughly check and repair. I believe nothing you can do right now. And its probably still damp inside, means still affecting by corrosive salt water if you did not already dry it throughly.

N70 Fell in water, Only White Screen is Shown


Don't put the battery / power on. Take the phone to the mechanic / nokia service center on urgent basis. They will remove the remnents of the water and salt over the circuit.
If the problem is still not solved, either the power supply or the motherbaord will require a replacement.

Camera fell in the water for 3 seconds, wont turn on


The best advice is to check with Canon, describe what happened, and take their advice. I think you will do best if it is seawater, or saltwater, to return it for servicing, as salt is deadly to some camera parts, and if you switch on with salt water in, it can cause permanent damage to circuits, and even can create a short between components, particularly the flash circuit. If it is fresh water, and for some reason you don't want to return it, it is best to use a hair dryer on medium or low heat to blow dry as much as possible, with the lens off, and the battery and card compartments also open, and come back to it after about an hour and repeat.Do not heat it to anything more than about skin heat, as evaporation will continue at even room temperature. Do this for most of the day, and leave it for a day or two, or even a week, as open to the air as you can, but in a dust-free environment, preferably in a warmish place, like an airing cupboard, so that all moisture will evaporate, Then try it again with fresh battery. I suspect that if it still won't operate, you could repeat the process, but it is most likely then, that you will have to return it for servicing or repair. I had an Olympus C8080w, and me and the camera were swamped by heavy spray from a wave, and I ran to the local shop, bought some tissues, and dried it immediately. I took it home, zoomed out, dried as much as possible down the lens gap, and left it in warm room. When dried out, some salt crystals were left on the lens barrel on zoom out, but thank the Lord, it still worked, and has not let me down - I did use a damp hanky to try and absorb as much water as possible from the outside, and dilute any surface salt as much as I could. I still use it regularly, but dropping into water is a different matter. - Please post and let us know what happens - and the best of luck

Repairing Sony H7


I HATE TO SAY THIS, BUT DROPPING IT IN SALT WATER IS ABOUT LIKE THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH ON YOUR COMPUTER. SALT WATER BEING VERY CORROSIVE WILL, IF NOT HAS RUINED ANY WORKING PARTS AND CIRCUITS IN THE CAMERA. DRYING IT DOES NOT REMOVE THE SALT AND THE DAMAGE WILL BE TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT REPAIR WILL BE ALL BUT IMPOSSIBLE. THERE JUST ISN'T ANY FIX FOR SOMETHING LIKE SALT WATER. I'M SURE THAT INSERTING THE BATTERY MOST LIKELY SHORTED OUT CIRTCUITS INSIDE THE CAMERA. THERE JUST ISN'T MUCH HELP HERE EXCEPT A VERY EXPENSIVE REPAIR IF YOU COULD FIND ANYONE WHO WOULD EVEN WORK ON A SALT WATER DAMAGE. WATER AND CAMERAS JUST DON'T MIX.

My phone in salt water.


To anyone who drops their phone in salt water. Get the battery out immediately. When you get home or sooner if you can put the phone in something that will allow fresh water to immerse it entirely. Keep water running in the container for about 3 days continually flushing the phone. Now take all of the water out and fill the container with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol. Let the phone dry out for at least 2-weeks before trying a fully charged battery in it and turn it on. Should work and you have just saved yourself buying a new one. Then don't leave it in your pocket when you go to the beach, drop it in a Ferry Salt Water Toilet, etc., where it it is immersed in salt water. If it is most cell phone providers will refuse to even look at it from their tech depts. A Radio Tech/Inspector in Canada.
