You can't.
Buy yourself a new camera because getting the old one fix will cost you more than buying a new one.
Sorry buddy.

Maybe you should check this one out: Olympus 770SW, :).

I have sea doo GTR 215 sunk on salt water. I open the engine immediately to avoid eternal corrosion. but my problem is I don't have service manual for engine torque specifiaction. can you provide me e


Pull the plugs and fill it with wd-40.
And whatever you remove just replace tightly.
Unless its a head gasket or gasket mated part, torque values aren't that critical . Too loose and they'll vibrate out. Too tight and you'll snap or strip it out. A lot of repairs at shops are seldom torqued it all goes by feeling and for the stuff that needs to be torqued like internal parts just google whatever part it is and the type of ski and it'll show in your search.

Johnson 5hp motor sunk in a lake for 2 days--what needs to be checked?


Quick pull the spark plugs and fill with any kind of oil-(WD-40 works best) Then look down the carb and dump a cup down the intake and spin it over by hand till it is free(still no plugs). Finally spray wd-40 up under the flywheel. Physically shake the motor. Spin with the starter to clear the motor of water.

WITH A FIRE EXTINGUISHER handy. Put in a trash can with water and clean fuel and try to make it start. If it starts, keep it going for 1/2 hour to get it warm and dry out the insides.

If you ever can't work on a sunk motor for a day or two, keep it sunk do not try and dry it with out oils and leave it where the air can get to it for even a few hours.

Dropped camera into the sea while it was switch on now completly dead, any ideas if it can be fixed!


Sea water is corrosive and just gets worse over time. Most repair facilities won't even bother with your camera. If you find one that will, the cost will be enormous...they have to replace everything including the lens. Buying a new camera is much cheaper.

Several months ago i had a drainage problem where the water was coming into my house. it was a bad pipe that was causing the problem. they had to did my front lawn up to take the old pipe out they...





hi,
they may not have fixed the leak or its leaking from somewhere else. make sure all the water is off in the house open up your water meter box and watch the water meter gauge closely to see if your leaking. use a strong torchlight to identify the leak.. if the leak is after your water meter, your paying for that leaky water seeping into the ground, if the meter is moving, I would have the company that fixed that pipe come back out and tell them your meter is moving when you have no water running in the house.if the meter is not moving then I would carefully dig it up to see exactly whats going on. if its not leaking at all then I would suggest some gravel first then the rest dirt.
good luck

My sony camera DSC-t50 got sunk into the water. now, it doesn't power up. can it still be repaired? need help :( thanks much.


You will be lucky to get this working but without wasting time you must have disconnected the battery.
Now the best for you to do is to get the battery removed and keep the camera in warm surroundings, then have it packed with silica gel after tapping off water if present. Charge the battery, remove memory stick and check . if no life, take help for an estimation of the fault and cost at the Sony service., than tampering further.

Camera was soaked in a swimming pool. Nothing works.


It's dead and totally unrepairable then.

Water alone is a camera killer, but chlorinated pool water removes even the remotest possibility of any repair.

Sorry. Not everything can be fixed.
