Hi,

The only way to fix this problem is to get it repaired.The water has entered into your camera and it is possible that motherboard inside has been burnt or there is still some water inside. you can try one home remedy.Take you camera apart and then blow a compressed air or you can use a hair dryer to dry water inside.

My olympus tough tg-310 got wet inside with salt water form the beach now it won't turn on please help.


There is very little that can be done, salt water will corrode metal on contact, all eletronic parts have been compromised, if the memory card is still intact save your pictures and remove it from the camera to transfer to new hardware. Replacing the camera unfortuneately is the only option.

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.

It got wet on the beach. water went into the camera and it won't start anymore.


The best way to try to recover items that have had water damage is to place them in a container with the gel packs you find in new shoes. If none of those are available to you try putting the camera in a ziplock bag with rice. This will absorb any moisture left in the camera. Take out the battery and memory card before trying either of the prior options.
After you have let the camera sit with the gel or rice overnight or for several hours, remove the camera from the bag and blow off any dust from the rice. Make sure that the inside of the camera is clean and dry (where the battery goes) Then put the battery and memory card back in. Make sure that the battery is fully charged and try turning it on.
If that doesn't work try going to a specialty camera store such as B&W. They can help you further and instruct you on how to procede.
It is advised not to get any digital electronic wet as most are not water proof and will be damaged by any exposure to water.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 was soaked in water. It isn't working, will it work when it drys out?


It depends on how wet it was, if the entire thing was submerged, or even a large portion, it probably will not.it may turn on but it is likely that the lens will be damaged permanently. However if it was just wet upon the outside, like it was used out side during a rain fall, and then wiped dry every thing should be fine.It all depends,try drying it out thoroughly, letting it sit out with all lens caps and lens attachments removed, battery doorway open. is the best thing you can do. I hope that everything works out for you. God bless...

you did good and removing the battery and memory card was also a good idea....leave the unit for a couple days the way it is...check later to see if there is any white or green residue(powder) or rust looking areas around the memory card and battery location...if it seems clear then it should be fine, if you see any type residue, then water got into the unit and is starting to corrode it...which means 2 things...either buy a new one or you can still try to salvage this one by having it opened and cleaned out with acetone and dried up completely..then for sure it will be good to go..but first try what I suggested
