Got camera wet

I dropped my camera in the water. I caught it just as the battery end touched, but it still got wet. I opened it up, took the tape out and left it in the sun to dry. Everything work except the record function.

If your device gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.

1. DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON
2. Pull out the battery.
3. Please your device and battery into a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb any moisture.
4. Please it in a warm, dry place where it can receive direct sunlight.
5. Be patient. It is recommended that you leave it in there for at least 48 hours.
6. After 48 hours, put the battery back in and power on.

What can I do if camera got wet?


DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON! You will probably fry the circuits. Remove the battery and memory card and dry those areas as well as you can. Bury the camera in a bowl of dry rice for a week before trying to turn it on. Then, keep your fingers crossed. Depending on how wet it got and what kind of water or liquid it was exposed to, you could still have problems with haze between the lens elements, an LCD screen that won't operate properly, etc.

The camera will not load a tape. Without a tape installed the loading mechanism works as it should. when a tape is placed in the camera it does not retract into the camera but opens back up as if to eject...


Symptom shows Dew sensor is activated and most probably you will see water-drop yellow sign flashing in LCD.
Remove battery / power source from camcorder and leave it for 1-2 hours, reattach battery/ power to camera and turn it on and check.
Thanks.

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.

My camera got a little wet 2 days ago.


Good luck with this, water is NEVER good in a camera. Best advice is to open it up as much as possible, remove cards, open access doors etc and place it in a warm dry place for a few days. Hot water cupboard is best. With luck the water will dry and it might come on. If it had been salt water or Sports drink full of sugars etc then you may as well ring up your insurance.

My nikon d40x got a little wet...


Not really a solution, But my camera and I fell in a lake. I took it ALL apart and didn't touch it for four days. It turned on and worked, though I had to re-set all my settings. The only thing that doesn't work is the "trash" button, and I can live without it :) good luck!

Wet camera


Make sure it is completely dry. I have dried cameras by placing them under a gooseneck desk lamp (careful, not too close or you will melt the plastic). Open as many things on the camera as possible, and remove the battery. You shouldn't power it on until it is really dry. You might need to "bake" it under the lamp for a few days. If you see condensation on the lens, it isn't dry. Other than that, I'm not sure what else to do.

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.

Camera dropped in a bucket of water


I very much doubt it. If you had removed the batteries straight away, stripped the complete camera and let warm air waft over it for a day and then put it all back together and tried it, you may have been lucky. But wet circuit boards and electricity is asking for major problems. Even leaving a closed camera for 2 days wouldn't have given it a good drying out.
