Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
Camera got wet and was operated before fully dry shorting something in the lcd circuit (there was a loud pop and the unit shut down). I've opened the camera and the lcd screen (which still works) and the backlight show now visible damage or signs of a short. I assume that a capacitor overloaded anyone with a circuit layout or instructions for disassemblyor any advice would be welcome! This is frustrating as taking it to be repaired would probably cost more than the camera cost me, every other function on the camera works perfectly.
The flash capacitor witch stays charged for days even when your camera off has very high voltage on it and probably arched over into more that just blowing your lcd screen.
only thing I would do is junk it or buy one on ebay with minor problems and start repalcing boards, get some fine jewlers philips screwdrives and small flat, and be very careful. I wouldnt try to replace any surface mounted componets.

As the mobile is wet the circuit board inside the mobile
will be fully wet. Due to this the connections between the circuits get
connected (short circuited) and the mobile may behave in such a manner that it
should not behave. NEVER put the wet mobile in charger even though it is dry
and working properly. There may be water logs present in the mobile circuit
which may be dangerous to the person who is using the mobile. It may lead to
Take the mobile to the authorized dealer of your make and
they will remove the water log from the
mobile circuit board and it will be fine .I recommend you not to do this by
