Electronics and water don't mix, you have ruined the camera, take the batteries out, take the camera completely apart and dry it completely, this may be ruined / lost cause but you can try.

How do you get mold out of fresh tanks?


There should be a fresh water fill on the outside of the coach. If not then there is a valve that would need to be turned that will allow water to be put into the fresh water tank. If that is the case then it will be a bit more difficult to put bleach into the fresh water tank but not impossible. There will be a pump that draws fresh water out of the tank. You can disconnect the input and output lines. Connect the input line which comes from the fresh water tank to the output side of the pump. Then using a flexible line with a 1/2" pipe thread fitting, connect that to the input side of the pump. Put the loose end of the flexible line into a gallon of bleach and turn the pump on. It will draw the bleach out of the container and pump it into the fresh water holding tank. Now return the plumbing of the pump back to the original configuration. Using the valve system complete filling the fresh water tank with fresh water and allow to sit for a couple of days. Then open the low point drain on the fresh water tank and completely drain. When the coach is not in use make sure the tank is completely drained. There is also a fresh water treatment that you can purchase at your local rv parts department.

DSC-T70 camera got wet and now won't power on. Battery seems to charge fine.


I'm guessing you tried to turn it on way too soon and fried the circuits. A camera with fresh water damage should be buried in a bowl of dry rice for a week before even attempting to turn it on. Salt water damage?....chances of a complete recovery are slim to none.

Took the Canon Power Shot on a fishing charter at Coasta Rico. Camera was dampened in a bag with a wave of salt water. Not drenched but dampened. Took batteries out and dried camera for 7 days and still...


Saltwater? I don't think you're going to revive this camera. If it were fresh water - you'd have a fighting chance - but salt water is highly corrosive and is a much better electrical conductor than fresh water. Even if you managed to get the camera work right after it got wet - chances are the salt would eventually "work its magic" and corrode metal circuits inside the camera and cause it to fail - much the way salt "eats cars" in areas that roads are treated with salt in winter to control ice.

If you ever have a water problem with something not designed to get wet, place the item in a bowl of uncooked rice. Cover completely and let it sit a day or two. The dry rice will wick away water and moisture on and inside the device. If doused in salt water, the water will be absorbed - but salt deposits are left behind, as salt can not be evaporated.

I know it wasn't what you wanted to hear... good luck.

My son's camera was dropped in water


If it was salt water, then the camera is irreparable. Fresh water - let it completely dry for a few days before turning it on. Open all compartments to allow the inside to dry. Use desiccant pouches - like the ones they put in beef jerky packages, to sit in the camera.

My kid put my digital camera in the microwave. Is it completely dead?


Probably a total loss. Try a fresh battery and flash card, maybe you'll be lucky.

How to fix a wet digi cam?


Let it dry completely.. Take out battery, do not turn on until dry. If wet with fresh water, should still work if not shorted out already. Salt water is much worse. Put it somewhere dry for about a week before trying again.

silly question, but have you tried different fresh batteries? sometimes batteries go dead in the store, especially if they are cheap batteries. try another fresh set.

EOS 30D - blue print light then dead


When you disconnected the camera, did you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen or did you just yank out the cord?

My camera is dead as it dropped at seaside.


Probably not.  Salt water and electronics are a terrible combination.  Salt water is an excellent conductor, but, worse, in the process, it is also highly corrosive to copper, so, you get the worst of dead shorts and accelerated destruction to traces.
Most electronics that hit salt water are unrecoverable, unfortunately. (I'm a SCUBA instructor and have not yet flooded a camera, but, I have replaced a number of underwater lights over the years for similar issues).
Electricity+Salt water == Hydrogen, Chlorine, Sodium, and Oxygen.  The electrolysis reaction will tend to remove copper from anodes (things connected to the + side of the batteries) and deposit it on the cathodes (things connected to the - side of the batteries), which is very bad for the electronics.  It will also make hydrogen and chlorine gasses.

Cemara is dead


This may sound odd, but I read this somewhere. Put the camera in a bag of rice overnight. Rice is a good dehumidifier. Take it out the next day and turn it on.
