    Sorry but that's just an announcement, not a question. If you want help you need to give more detail about why you think it's damaged including any details which might indicate how it was damaged. Some types of damage are unrepairable with no chance of data recovery, others mean that the data can be retrieved in full or in part but FixYa volunteers have no way of giving you a useful answer or solution unless you post a useful question.

Sorry, but your assumption is incorrect. There are some parts which will be irreversibly damaged following immersion.

Your camera is a write-off and is beyond economic repair. Even if you could find which parts are currently not working and replace them, other parts will be corroding or deteriorating in other ways and would fail completely or intermittently over the next few months.

Sorry, not everything can realistically be fixed. Water damage may not look serious, but you may as well have dropped your camera into a camp fire as the effects are just as disastrous from a functional perspective.

When you attach the flas to the camera can exidentli fire. This is normal, and manufacturer recomendation, turn off the flas unit before attach or deattach, prevent this fireing. Fireing when you turn the flashead is not normal. Probably the mounting foot of the flash unit can move in the hotshoe, breaking connections between the connector pins, causing exidental fiering. Always lock the locking lever of the flas, wich can prevent this unwanted movement. Also chek the hotshoe on the camera, wich should to have a "leaf spring" keeping the flash unit steady.

Flash problems

I assume you mean when ever you switch the flash off. This is because there is not enough light for the particular setting the camera is on and the images are blurred because of the long exposure is causing camera shake. Check the menu and see in you can select a higher ISO figure- Say 400
