Drowned Sony Cybershot S650

I dropped my camera in water...bummer! It dried out in a few days and is actually taking decent pics once again, but the display screen is black. Is this fixable or should I buy a new camera?

Hi Tc77,

Your camera can be fixed but it will be expensive to change the lcd screen your best bet is to buy a new camera as with a new camera your can get accidental damage cover so if anything like this happens you now the camera can be fix or replaced this is just a suggestion of option.

Power won't stay on

camera needs to be reset...but not gonna be easy

take batteries out...hold down power switch for 15 seconds...then put batteries in and restart

if camera works...go straight to menu and reintialize all functions

this is a firmware/software problem that is not easily fixed...and Sony wants $91 to fix a $100 camera

keep repeating this until it works...may take numerous attempts...but this is how I got my camera running again

hi there

those pics that youve saved are still there in the memory stick. the camera though, im no so sure if its retreiveable. even if you dried it, you said that it still wont work. what you can do for your camera is bring it to the service center and have it looked. your memory stick will work though if you cn\onnect it to a card reader/writer and have those pics saved to a media like cd or save it to your computer.

hope this helps.

To salvage the pictures you could just use a memory card reader. As for the camera itself I cannot say, but by your description it doesn't sound promising.

Try resetting the camera. Take the batteries out for about five minutes and then re-insert them.

I cannot provide the answer but i think it may have something to do with the shutter mechanism. When you dropped it, something inside the mechanism may have bent or stopped. Don't take the camera apart yourself, take it to a specialist such as an electronics store. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Turning on may have killed it. however try this. Take the batteries and card out and leave the doors open Take a polythene bag and place in it a quantity of uncooked rice or salt tied into a suitable cloth. put the camera in and seal the bag. leave in a warm dry place for several days This may save it -or it may not.
