My Casio Exilim was dipped into diet coke and now it won't turn on. It only gets as far as a "battery low" warning then shuts down. Have tried to dry it for a couple of days and tried to clean contacts with q tip and alcohol, but no dice. The battery is still good.

Re: Digital Camera dipped into diet coke
Unfortunately, you'll need to send it in for repair. Apparently contacts or electrical pathways other than what you can access have been compromised.You didn't mention what kind of soda it was, but if it was a type of cola, they are known to be corrosive. They can be particularly troublesome in aircraft. Place a piece of aluminum foil in a glass of your favorite cola for a couple of days and see what happens.
Anyway here is Casio's repair info:

Bad news! Sorry but electronics and water (vodka n coke) don't mix well, even just a little. Even if you removed the battery immediately, and let it dry over night, it probably still wouldn't work again. Even if it does come on the coke would make the keys and switches lock up. Sorry.
Casio batteries have a issue and are very weak you should not let it get below 5% when it is this low the camera will come on say battery is low and turn off. if it remains this or lower the battery can go out the good thing is you can get them really cheap off ebay.
I have a casio exilim ex-z60 which I bought 2 yrs ago. I've had problems with my flash going off each time I turned on and off the camera, about 5 months ago. Now the flash does not work. Need help on how to restore the flash bulb or battery in the camera.
I gave my wife also one of the Casio Exilim cameras. She doesn't take a lot of pictures. But so far the battery has not failed us. There might be a chance that your battery has died on you. I suggest you go to Casio and ask them to test the battery. I'm guessing it is the battery that has conked out. If it isn't then you need to have Casio check on your camera.
Chances are you are not going to succeed.
Water dissolves Coke but Kills cameras.
Dropping them does the lens drive mechanism no good at all.
Well now you are in a rock and a hard place.
1st thing to do is to go and buy the next camera.
Then remove batteries and memory card from the existing camera and wet a tissue and wrap it around the lens barrel and let it stand face down for a couple of hours.
Then find a poly bog. and in it put some salt or uncooked rice wrapped in a cloth[hanky?]
Put hanky and camera in the bag close tight shut for a day.
The idea is to draw out the moisture
But I reckon you will need that new camera.
As for a repair -forget it - these things don't get repaired
