Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P200 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Wont run on batteries

My camera got splashed with water from my grandkids. Now it will not power on with the battery. It works just fine when pluged in the the ac but will not work under battery. I have replaced the battery with no luck and yes the battery is fully charged. Any ideas on fixing this is appreciated. It is out of waranty and sending it back to sony is more expensive then buying a new camera.
Thanks for your help.

When the water got into the circuit the full batter charge likely caused a short across a blocking diode and shorted it out.
its on the board and likely close to the battery cables, but this is micro electronics and requires a completed disassembly.
I'd sell it on ebay with the exact issue.

Fuji finepix s1500 water splash damage. my fujifilm finepix s1500 had a slight water splash from a wave on a beach. Now it wont start up/work. It was dried immediately, and i underdstand that salt water...


It might be the salt water has got into its main chip circuit board or may be its blocking the power switch circuit. And there is a chance of the lens motor being stuck by it. You can also try another battery or recharge your battery and try it again. If you have no other choice that throwing it and buying another one then try washing it with normal water, let it dry then try again.

Do you need a working battery to run camcorder off ac power adapter? I havent used camera in 2 years and just bought replaceable power adapter and wont charge battery or work off outlet at all..camera was...


You do not need a battery to run the camcorder off ac power supply. It is one or the other. The only time that both will be used is when you are charging the battery on the camcorder with the power off.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

You have inserted battery in your camera after splashing water onto it. Switching ON the device caused short in the circuit. It needs to be send for service (repair), there is no other way to fix the problem.

Rating the solution is highly appreciated....Good Luck

Kodak m1073 dont open


The problem you describe is frequently the result of dirty/corroded battery contacts in the camera. Try removing the batteries and cleaning the inside contacts with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. Remove any residue left from the cleaning, then replace the batteries. Hopefully all will be well.

If the cleaning doesn't work you might want to check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Won't turn on. Battery is charged. Got splashed


Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera and on the battery with the eraser end of a pencil if you can. Corrosion on the contacts may keep it from working. There may be other water damage inside the camera too.
