Question about Nikon Coolpix 3200 Digital Camera

My nikon coolpix s5 got beer spilled on it while in a case...is it fixable?

Recently someone spilled beer on my purse which had my camera in it in a soft case. My phone also got wet but now works again. The camera didnt appear that wet and when I tried to turn it on the light in front lit up orange so i thought it was dead maybe because I hadn't charged it for awhile. I took out the battery and sd card overnight and part of the next day to let everything dry out. Then I put it all back in and hooked it up to charge and it showed that it was taking the charge so I let it fully charge and now when i try to hit the on button nothing happens. What if anything else should I try and do to fix it myself...and if I can't fix it myself would it be worth getting it repaired? Thanks alot.

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix S5 lens cover won't open

Hi Debscan, My 1.4 year old S5 developed the same problem and after checking out various websites I get the impression that it is a common one to these cameras. I found that if I put the camera on a level table and then turn it on (and off) 3 times the lens cover would open further with each try. On the third turn-on the lens cover would drop fully with a definite "Click" and the camera would work. The next time I shut it off, the lens would not close properly, but the same "Third times the charm" routine would always work. This may only delay the inevidable final crash of the camera, but it might get you a few more pictures out of it.

SOURCE: Dead Nikon D50 in mint condition...

Sounds like a power problem. Try checking voltage of battery and cleaning contacts with a cotton bud and electrical contact cleaner $8 at repco. Had a similar problem with a pentax mini slr. Verdigris (****) on battery terminals is dynamite in low current circuits. If you cant afford contact cleaner use special methylated spirit ( $3.00 at local pharmacy). Good luck Trevor

SOURCE: Nikon CoolPix S5 - Same trouble

I went through the process of sending my camera in to the nikon repair center. it was used very little, in fact it appears brand new. it had never been mistreated, wich is what nikon tried to convince me must have happened because they refuse to believe that they have sold an inferior product. they never told me what is wrong with the camera but wanted $146 to fix it and send it back. the only solution is that everyone send their s5 back to the service ctr and refuse to pay to have them repaired. they e-mail a survey and if we all give them low marks maybe they will decide that they should take care of their customers a little better, especially with todays economy. the survey asks if you would purchase or recommend NIKON again. I told them that I WOULD AVOID NIKON LIKE A SICK CHINESE CHICKEN.

Spill beer on my blackberry 8780, did the rice technquie, work fine till later in the evening. when i put the battery in it goes on n jump into safe mode? then my phone on lock so the crusor wont seem to...


You didn't let it dry out all the way so the liquid in there is acting like a conductor screwing everything up . The computer inside shut down to save itself. What you have to do is take out battery and sim card and then cover to expose insides. let air dry in well ventilated space for 24 hours and then start over. It should work but it might have been too late and in which case you need a new phone. If you ever get anything electronic wet, shut it down immediately take apart and let air dry and in some cases if the goo is too bad then you need to take an alcohol swab and clean off the components. Electronics are great but they are not invincible.

My wonderful little sony cyber-shot got drenched when my water bottle spilled in my purse. It was in my purse about 5 minutes when I discovered it wet. I took it out and laid it in my car seat to dry it...


Every time you try to turn on a camera that still has water in it, you fry the circuits. You should have removed the battery and card, dried as much as you could and then buried the camera in a bowl of dry rice for a week before even thinking of trying it.

I have a hp 5070-4221 wireless keyboard I spilled beer on and now it does not work. Can it be repared


Once upon a time coffee was spilled on a wired keyboard and this mechanic I knew took the keyboard out of its case, poured water on it , and let it dry for a day or two.

Then he reinstalled it and it worked!

I am not saying that this solution will work for you, but the Beer may be causing the keyboard buttons not to work.

Good luck on this repair.

Some of the keys work and a few just dont ....I am not sure if the keys are broken....stuck or if my laptop has been dropped or something.It's just not working right


Did someone (not you, of course) spill something (sugar in coffee, tea, cocoa, soft-drink, beer) onto the keyboard? If so, as the liquid dries, the sugar dries up, and gums-up the works.

Get a qualified technician to replace the keyboard.

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!
