Re: Water inside S3500 Fujifilm

Try taking it apart, and letting the pieces dry oput, or take it to a reputable camera shop, and see if the can replace one of the boards that might have short circuited, otherwise it looks like you need a new camera :( Sorry.

How to fix a wet digi cam?

Let it dry completely.. Take out battery, do not turn on until dry. If wet with fresh water, should still work if not shorted out already. Salt water is much worse. Put it somewhere dry for about a week before trying again.

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.

Blurry lens after using it underwater

Sadly that symptom indicates that the camera is broken.

The device's seal protects both from the condition that you are seeing, but also protects the internal circuits from moisture.

If water has gotten inside the camera, I would pursue returning it and getting a replacement from the company.

Spilt water over digi cam now it's completely dead?.

If there was any shorting and or corrosion in the circuits caused by the water, the affected circuit boards and parts will have to be changed to service the camera.

Hi, I always take the memory card out of my camera and use a card reader via the USB port. This way I am not dependent on the camera having sufficient battery power or having to connect to an AC adaptor.
