To salvage the pictures you could just use a memory card reader. As for the camera itself I cannot say, but by your description it doesn't sound promising.

Sony cybershot DS W80 is not switching since mother board is u/s. It fell in sea water. suspected problem in LCD also. spares are not available other than sony company servicing centres which is very...


The repair to any camera damaged by sea water will cost more than the cost of a new camera since everything must be replaced because salt water is corrosive. Add the replacement parts to the labor costs and you now have a repaired camera that cost more than a new one.

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-S750. I recently dropped it in some water, so I came home, took the battery out and dried the camera for 2 1/2 days. Now when I take pictures there are white lines running...


First of all, you're lucky it turned on at all. Usually, a camera must be buried in a bowl of dry rice for a week before it is completely dry. Even then, only if it was dropped in distilled water would it work properly. Ordinary water will leave deposits that will change the way the camera behaves. Salt water is even worse...it will continue to corrode the electronics long after the incident.

Repairing Sony H7


I HATE TO SAY THIS, BUT DROPPING IT IN SALT WATER IS ABOUT LIKE THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH ON YOUR COMPUTER. SALT WATER BEING VERY CORROSIVE WILL, IF NOT HAS RUINED ANY WORKING PARTS AND CIRCUITS IN THE CAMERA. DRYING IT DOES NOT REMOVE THE SALT AND THE DAMAGE WILL BE TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT REPAIR WILL BE ALL BUT IMPOSSIBLE. THERE JUST ISN'T ANY FIX FOR SOMETHING LIKE SALT WATER. I'M SURE THAT INSERTING THE BATTERY MOST LIKELY SHORTED OUT CIRTCUITS INSIDE THE CAMERA. THERE JUST ISN'T MUCH HELP HERE EXCEPT A VERY EXPENSIVE REPAIR IF YOU COULD FIND ANYONE WHO WOULD EVEN WORK ON A SALT WATER DAMAGE. WATER AND CAMERAS JUST DON'T MIX.

Sony camera


hi there

those pics that youve saved are still there in the memory stick. the camera though, im no so sure if its retreiveable. even if you dried it, you said that it still wont work. what you can do for your camera is bring it to the service center and have it looked. your memory stick will work though if you cn\onnect it to a card reader/writer and have those pics saved to a media like cd or save it to your computer.

hope this helps.

Drowned Sony Cybershot S650


Hi Tc77,

Your camera can be fixed but it will be expensive to change the lcd screen your best bet is to buy a new camera as with a new camera your can get accidental damage cover so if anything like this happens you now the camera can be fix or replaced this is just a suggestion of option.

Turning on may have killed it. however try this. Take the batteries and card out and leave the doors open Take a polythene bag and place in it a quantity of uncooked rice or salt tied into a suitable cloth. put the camera in and seal the bag. leave in a warm dry place for several days This may save it -or it may not.
