My camera got wet ...

Well i know this is kinda late, but here's my problem anyways

it got wet around the end of november and since then, i didnt know what to do. it was sin my backpack and it was kinda raining hard during school, then when i took it out, i realized it got when it was blinking green but everytime i opened the lens, it would blink red and green.
my friend told me to take out the battery and wait a couple seconds before putting it back it. i did that a couple more times and it still doesnt work

i was thinking of taking it apart but i didnt want to risk breaking it.
its almost been a month and STILL it wont work

Re: my camera got wet ...

I would say the only thing you can do is dry out the phone completely. The only good way of doing this is using Silica Gel Packets. You can find a few articles online that talk about this like the one on Once they get wet and the spot turns pink this void the manufacture warranty.

What seems to be the sure fire way is to dry out the phone using Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel absorbs moisture and dries things out. You can just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and find several vendors selling these products or there is an actual web site:

Re: my camera got wet ...

Well put it away somewhere warm for another month with the battery out.

But I have a feeling that the camera has died
Nothing for you to repair in side so you wont beak anything by taking it apart for curiosity sake.

What is error code E23?

Traditionally, the E23 error code in Canon Powershot models is the CF/SD card memory full error. Do you get the same error message when using another card or when there is no card in the camera?

If you've tried a different memory card and made sure it's inserted properly and still get the the error then the camera is water damaged. Canon repair manuals indicate the E23 error is generated from the "PCB board" (main camera electronics) so the only option would most likely be a board replacement.

HOWEVER - I can make this suggestion. I had a Canon DSLR get submerged underwater in a "moose vs canoe" incident some time back. I read to remove the battery and memory card (leave the doors open), wrap the camera in a clean, paper bag and completely cover it in a bowl of plain, dry, uncooked white rice to absorb moisture that may be trapped in the camera. It's a last ditch effort and may already be too late, depending on how wet your camera got and how soon you can do this. You'll need to leave it in the uncovered bowl of rice for at least a week and keep the bowl in a dry area. This worked for me but my camera was completely submerged for less than 10 seconds. Good luck!

Salt water exposure and camera malfunction

As a tech, in my opinion, there is little hope for the device and a tech should be able to tell it had been wet with a corrosive element.

However, as a customer, I say try to have it serviced under warranty and don't offer any information other then "I'm not a technician, I don't know". Most companies are more interested in keeping customers then blaming them, and will replace or repair the device.

Best of luck to you.

My flip got wet and wont turn on. is there anyway to save videos

Do you use memory cards with your camera? If so, the videos should be saved on the memory card. Just remove the card and download it to your pc or view it in another camera.

If you do not use memory cards, then remove the battery from the camera, put it in a bag of dry rice. close the top of the bag and leave the camera in that bag for about a week to dry it out all the way. Once it has dried out, it should work fine. But do not try and turn it on and off ect while part is still wet or you may loose your videos stored on it and/or damage the camera.

How do i clean the battery compartment of a nikon L22

I use long cotton swabs. You can usually get them at any pharmacy for about $3. Wet it with vinegar and rub the contacts. Don't have it dripping, that would get things inside wet. If all the crud doesn't come loose, turn the swab around and use the stick end. After you have it cleaned, use rubbing alcohol on a clean swab to remove any vinegar residue.

Camera got wet in the ocean and now the screen on the back of the camera does not work/display anything - just stays black.

If you tried to turn it on without properly drying it for a week, you probably fried the circuits. Even if you didn't, the salt water would eventually corrode everything inside the camera anyway.

My camera got wet and now the viewfinder and the pictures turn out black.

If it just got wet slightly, you can use a canned air to blow dry the camera. If got totally wet, it will be most advised to take your camera to an authorized service center with or without warranty. There still maybe some wet parts left inside so using the camera further might result to further damage.

Powershot sd400 elph,got wet

If you tried turning the camera on while the electronics were still wet, it may be too late to offer any help.

Assuming you do this again, any piece of electronics that is immersed in water may begin to corrode immediately upon exposure to air, and if you don't want to take the chance of corrosion, you should take your camera to a professional repair depot.

Without disassembling the camera and drying out the pieces manually, there's nothing you can do except open every available crevice (lense, battery area, CF memory slot), remove the battery and memory card (which can then be dried CAREFULLY by hand), and hope that all pieces of the camera will eventually dry out (I'd leave it in a dry, warm environment for at least 3-4 days - longer if you can wait).

If Sonty say it is wet damaged and you are sure you did not get it wet You could say to Sony that it could only have got wet after you sent it to them. See what happens

I got my camera wet!!!

basically a bubble blower has a thick concentrated solution of soap. if any amount of this solution happens to enter even the lense assembly and you have given enough time to dry it up , it must be creating a friction in the movement of the lense assy. this will not allow the camera to switch on and will make noise.
