Re: dropped my coolpix L3 in the water
Probably no fix possible. If it was salt water, it is done. If it was normal clean water, you may still have a slight chance to get it going. Remove the batteries, and let it sit on a shelf for a couple weeks, that is to let it dry. Then put in the batteries and see what happens. You soon will know.If you have the patience, it may be better to take the back cover off, making a note of where the screws came from, to remember when putting together. Then let it dry for a few days.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them.
i had a cell phone and i wore it out completely, i dropped it ALL THE TIME, i would accidentally leave it out in the rain, i would accidentally have it go through the washer and dryer, and yes i did have it dropped in water completely also!! it was my first phone but it wasnt that long ago, like a year and a half ago. everyone i asked what to do about would say that RIGHT AFTER IT HAPPENS to blow it with a blowdryer and dont try to turn it on, just leave it to dry. and thank god but everytime it would come back on and work everytime. i did have alot of trouble after a while of its damage though, like when i would go to turn it back on after it being in water it would vibrate uncontrollably, it would take over a minute to turn it on and the battery would run out very fast!!!
i hope i gave you some good info. but who knows it could be too late or the blowdryer could possibly not let it work again!! sorry!!
