Kool-aid was spilled on Digital camera

Is a camera worth saving if kool-aid got spilled on my digital camera? It turns on but stays in the "Docked in Port" position. It will let me view pictures that I have taken but will not take new ones. I don't know which one it is on the list because it isn't with me right now so I just selected one. It has 6 megapixels. -Becky

Re: Kool-aid was spilled on Digital camera

Hi Becky,

The sugary content of Kool-Aid is not real camera friendly. It would appear a short has already been created internally. The tightly packed components of the camera are very difficult to clean effectively.

Battery door won't stay shut

That is a serous defect, because wit the door open, it won't work. If it is worth the price, goto a repair store, if not, start saving for a new camera.

if the only your trying to fix is the screen there is a screen restoration kit you can buy for camera's almost the same thing you can for headlights on cars you will pay a little bit for it though but its def worth it and it should take about anything of your screen for you.

I have a coolpix and I spilled orange juice on it. I imediatly cleaned and dried it off but when I would try to turn it on...nothing. It's been a few months I tried to turn it on and it says battery...

First off, are you sure that the battery is charged? It is definitely possible that spilling orange juice on it messed it up, but it might be all right.
Assuming the battery is charged, it is likely that the spill caused some internal damage. When you spilled on it, did you open the battery door, take the battery out, and allow the the camera to air-dry completely before turning it on? If you didn't, it is almost surely fried. If you didn't allow it to air-dry, it is likely that there was residual moisture and liquid on the internal components, and when you powered it on you likely messed them up. This is really a repair that is not worth paying for, as the cost of a new camera would be much cheaper.

Camera turns on only somtimes, shuts off after 1 picture captured

There are damaged components in the camera's circuitry. You may find the camera too expensive to service. I would think its time to buy a new camera. Generally water does a lot of damage!

You could send the camera out for an estimate. I have my doubts it will be worth to service.

I just got a kodak c913 camera yesterday and everytime i switch it on it stays on for seconds and then switches off, help!

My co-worker brought me a C913 with the same problem. I took out the batteries, took out the SD card, played with the buttons... nothing. A web search was unfruitfull. For fun, when I turned it on, I grabbed and held the lens. The camera turned off but the lense stayed out. I turned on the camera, the lense stayed out and the camera WORKED! I turned it off, the lense docked properly. I turned it back on, it worked... Woohoo! Theory: Either the lense was slow at coming (binding) out or was not coming out far enough. The camera shut itself off because it wasn't fully extended in an alloted period of time. Hope it works for you. Glennster™

Wine spilled on camera - repair or buy new one

It would be quite difficult to bring this camera back. I would suggest buying a new camera and keeping it away from the wine. Even if you did get a quote you liked and decided to get the camera repaired it is unlikely that the technician would be able to restore it to pre-wine functionality.
