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.

Re: Got camera wet
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.

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.
sorry to say but you have more than likely fried it!!.....and that sad part is that you can't send it back and try an claim it under warranty as they have a speacial tape strip inside that goes pink when the unit has been dropped in water and thats why they wont cover it....sorry to say but thats the end of that unit...it is beyound repair capabillites..
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.
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.
It is not possible that you can have water between front glass and lcd screen. Those 2 parts are glued together with LOCA glue. Maybe screen was repaired before and front glass was replaced and new one was reattached to phone is in mounting tape on sides instead LOCA glue?
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!
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.
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.
